Thanks @sha-shah1 I am really worried about these sort of fake calls my friend lost eight thousand life savings on a different site a couple of months ago so nowhere is safe

@frenchielove thank you, you are so kind helping me, Why are people so wicked a friend of mine got an e.mail. and followed the instructions to the letter, thinking it was her bank asking for all the information and they stole 8 thousand pounds from her she did not tell the police because she said she felt stupid.
I only found out a week or so ago. and she will not tell them

if any one get these kind of message please dont  click on link



Well spotted.


But, even if you think that a link in a message is real, never click it, got to the site in your normal way so that you know where you're going.


Be careful out there!
