Someone seems to be rather keen to pose as Santander at the moment. Over the past couple of weeks, my Junk filter has picked up 4 emails – the latest 2 being just a day apart. They’re all coming from the same place too, and have a lot in common. Indeed, the latter 3 emails are practically identical, they mainly just have different links.
They’re all claiming there’s been a security issue with my account, so I need to verify myself. They all have from addresses with the same domain. They all have links constructed in a very similar way, with subtle differences. And the formatting and grammar of the body text isn’t great in parts. So I’ll show you the text of the emails, and then highlight why they’re obviously nonsense. And don’t forget you can check out all of my scam email posts to see other examples I’ve highlighted.
