Egg Internet Banking - Your Online Banking Account Is Locked

It would appear from these 13 emails that I received this afternoon — in the seven minutes between 14:02 and 14:09 — that access has been locked to my Egg Internet Banking account.

That might otherwise concern me, were it not for the fact that I don’t actually bank with Egg Internet Banking.  I have a shoebox stuffed with cash stored securely in the safe of another UK bank.

Don’tcha just love spam!

Remember folks, if you get an email purporting to be from your bank: treat it with the utmost suspicion.  I don’t ever remember my bank ever emailing me.  If in doubt: phone the bank, or visit your local branch, never reply to those emails.

Apart from that one time when I had to arrange for US $23,000,000 to be paid into it for a couple of weeks while I was helping out some displaced African prince who’d kindly got in touch with me via email.
