We were made aware this morning that there are fake security emails doing the rounds again, the most recent one from Co-Operative Bank.
Co-Operative Bank advises:
"We have been made aware of a fake Co-operative bank email in circulation which asks you to click on a link to complete a security upgrade. It’s a scam.
If you receive this email, don’t click on any links and forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org
