Very good advice.  My Bank actually says on its site that it will never send
customers e-mail messages, so you have to get their messages on the site.

Ari, you are right of course in saying they just send out this stuff
in bulk and hope to catch someone not sufficiently vigilent in the
ways of the net these days.

That said, I would say simply ignore all messages perporting to come
from a bank, or even your bank - though you may have signed up for
your bank's email info news letters etc, but these won't ask you to
click through to a website.

If you've internet banking, and that I've found to be very convenient,
then you should go to your internet banking logon and check for
messages there.

The same goes for Ebay and Paypal messages.  Use the website;  ignore
emails.

Cheers,

From Ray

Hi Ron,
To be honest, I really don't think there's any way to not receive
them. I
think nearly everyone on the internet receives them, no matter how
secure
you try and keep your address. Yesterday I received three! These guys
will
obviously keep on trying all addresses in the hope that some poor guy
will
click the links. One thing that scared me was, when looking at the
address,
the domain name was the same as the actual banks, I wonder how they do
it?
What I mean is, the email was sent from an address ending at
@nedbank.co.za,
and the web site and email addresses of the people at this bank also
end in
@nedbank.co.za, how do they do that, is it some person actually at the
bank
trying to do phishing, I doubt that very much, but these emails are
really
getting sophistacated! Other thing I'd like to know is, they send you
links,
like JAWS says it's a link graphic, is there anyway, without actually
clicking on such a link, to find out what the web address is that it
would
be taking you to?
