Phishing Bank Mails

Just thought i'd warn you all . Theres a massive load of spam Phishing emails where the hacker is
pretending to be a bank (mostly HSBC, Lloyds TSB and Soutwest Bank of America) The email message goes along the lines of; There has been an error on the banking
system and we need you to re enter you details etc...... Do not under any circumstances click the link they give you. If you do it will more than likely hijack your PC with filthy spyware especially if your using internet explorer and your PC will be officially owned and they will use it to distribute warez and make more spam email.

Just thought i'd tell you all cause our email filter has blocked 12,000 emails like this in the last 3 days lol.

Cheers Chris Just to let you know I have had a few dodgy Ebay ones over the last few days from some third party site asking me to reply with my username and password. Please be aware of this as well; mine has been sent from www.safe-harbor.com.
