Did you forward it to Westpac as well??

Its amazing that people in this day and age would fall for that sort of shiat... even worse that someone would try it!

Thats what the man said!!

More importantly, how's the little one? Mine is being naughty and stopping me from going on trips!! Might try and get out up to the snow for a peek seeing im only 20mins away now.

In the last week i have received this rubbish from (supposedly) Bendigo Bank x 2 and Westpac x 1. Don't bank with either. Phoned all the details to each bank. The worst part of all this is that someone will get caught with this scam.

Steve,

Make sure you don't take their advice whatever the bank. I just bounce them and they go back to whence they came. I have been getting those from Westpac, NAB, ANZ, CBA, Bendigo and Citibank. Must think I have some money or something. Have intelligence sometimes, perhaps that leads to money.
Cheers,
Who?

Yep - i regularly get that type of spam supposedly from Westpac, Commonwealth & more recently Bendigo banks. C/w & W/pac have warnings on their home page - i asked Bendigo to do the same - they were aware they are now getting "Phished", but their warning was not as prominent as the others. Never think the bank will email you - it's all spam.
