Lloyds TSB customers beware phishing

October 18, 2010

I received yesterday a request, purporting to come from Lloyds TSB, asking for details of online banking arrangements and credit cards, and offering to remove a restriction on my account in return for supplying this information.

It asked for sort codes, credit card numbers, the 3-digit security code on the backs of cards and my online ID and PIN.

I phoned Lloyds TSB security this morning and they assured me this is another scam, and a new one, and asked me to forward the email to them.

If you or any of your friends or relatives receive such an email, on no account reply to it and never divulge the kind of information they were asking for in response to such a request, however convincing the email looks.
