    Will pass it along to Nedbank.

    What makes me wonder :

    Why would any bank ask me to update details over the net ?
    I'm an ABSA customer - never been at Nedbank

    I once tried to report stuff like this. No one at this "bank" knew what number I should phone.

    Else try Hellopeter

    No bank in SA ever will.

    FNB sends security updates every now and again, and that is one of the things they say again and again.

    Also, there are lots of other things to look out for... Some examples are that an email from the bank is adressed to you personally (not Dear Most Valued Customer).

    Another thing is that you should never log into your bank from an email link, type the address in your browser (or click it from your favourites)..

    Classical phishing bait.

    A bank will never do that by email...

    1. They will not ask you to VERIFY your details on the net
    2. It will not be signed off by Tom Boardman
    3. The site is not the same as the real one.
    4. There's too many things not right with that e-mail.

    That's why you never, ever click on the link given in the email... it will take you to a fake site which looks like the real thing, but it's not, and will only harvest your PIN numbers and other sensitive data...

    ...and you deserve to be cleaned out if you still are not heeding skoob's warnings...

    A favourite pastime of mine is to feed the phisher junk data - there's no law against that...

    /drops head in hands

    There is that thing called FICA - remember? Verify equals walking into a bank with your ID, proof of residence, etc.

    They will never do it over the net!

    I always did that with the paypal ones

    This email sounds allot like the one reported by absa on 06/09/2007. But even with these warnings, There will be people that fall for these things.
    ic's back, back again . . .

    We get the scam FNB emails sometimes at work which we have reported on several occasions. The fake sites do resemble the real one's but if you look carefully you will see the differences.
