Banking Scam

We're back with another Fuckwitt!

This one's a real doozy.


The person who shared it says she got this from her daughter who is a policewoman, yet the woman who shared it doesn't have a daughter.  I've seen this twice in the last 2 weeks and the 2nd one didn't have the first line.

Anyway, what it suggests is that you get a text message from O2 or Vodafone saying there's a problem with your bill.

When you click the link to take you to the site your money is taken from your account.

Firstly, what a load of bollocks.  There is no such way that could erven happen.

Why are people so gullible?  What do they think is setup in the background that you clicking a link will suddenly take money from your account?

It's just not possible.

"They already have all your details and it's the most advanced scam the bank has ever seen"

What bank?  There's no mention of a bank there.

If a fraudster has your details already, they'll do what they can with your account.  

"Thousands flying out of peoples accounts!"

Sure it is mate.

It's funny that it hasn't been on the news or anything.  You'd expect to maybe get some e-mails from your bank warning you at least.

It's simply not true.

Now, what I can tell you is that it's a actually a phishing attempt.  You'll get an e-mail purporting to be from EE for example, you click the link and it takes you to a site that looks remarkably like the EE site.

You try to log in, it tells you there's a problem.  Meanwhile it's just logged your username and password.

If you're not a customer of Giff Gaff and you receive an e-mail saying there's a problem with your account, what do you do?  You delete it, right?

But don't click that link!  Because thousands of pounds will go out of your account using details from Giff Gaff's system!

How stupid does it sound?  You really must be dumb to fall for this stuff.

I told one person who shared this it was fake, her response, "I'm not even an O2 customer, so I just deleted the e-mail"

So, why share this?!  You don't get e-mails from companies you don't have an account with telling you there's a problem with your account!
