Every now and then I get spam emails through from PayPal and eBay. I imagine we all do, and some of us, the select few ‘special’ ones actually click on them and enter their credit card details.
Today I received one from Nationwide. It might have convinced me it was real had it not been for a few small give-away signs.
- I don’t actually bank with Nationwide
- They spelled Nationwide wrong in the email field (Nationwlde)
- The email was sent to ‘undisclosed recipients’ – banks do not do this
I pity people who fall for this kind of crap but if anyone has I guess it just emphasises the old proverb; a fool and his money are soon parted.
