Barclays Bank Phishing Scam E-mails (5)

Phishing e-mails are e-mails from scam artists who use "official" looking webpages designed to trick you into believing they are from a website such as EBay, Paypal, America Online, banks, financial institutions.  They generally imply that your account will be suspended or deactivated unless you click the link to the webpage that is linked from the e-mail.  Sometimes they say that someone is trying to use your account or this is done for "security" purposes.  Once you are at the site, they will ask for personal information.  You may be asked to provide or verify personal information such as bank account information, credit card information, social security information and password information.  If you get such an e-mail, you should delete it and do not provide any of the requested information.  However, if you are still not convinced that you have a fraudulent e-mail, please contact the company directly and explain the e-mail you received.
