Nationwide Phish

Nationwide logoJust in time for Christmas, here's the latest phishing scam to hit my inbox. It comes with the Nationwide logo and looks official. "Dear Valued Customer" it begins, "Nationwide Online Banking is hereby announcing the New Security Upgrade." The threat: "Failure to verify your account details may lead to account disconnection". It invites you to click on a link "Sign in to Secured Online Banking", which takes you to the scam website: "". It ends: "Thank you. Online Security Team Nationwide Bulding Society © 2006 All Rights Reserved". Oh yeah? Any bank details you give to the scam website will go straight to the Nigerian Mafia. Or the Russians.
