A jolly good wheeze
The other day, I was asked to "Update my Banking" details for my account with a certain High Street Bank. When I looked at the underlying HTML code for the website to which the "Update Account" field was being directed I noticed the web address shown below:
It was fairly obvious what was supposed to happen here. I was supposed to fill in all of the details and then the owner of the website would clear out the contents of my bank account and head for the hills! Is this the latest answer to the schoolboy prank of "Knock down ginger" I wonder? If it wasn't for the fact that I did not have an account with the Bank in question I might well have fallen for this one! Laugh, I almost did!
Extremely Disgruntled of Tunbridge Wells!
