From Facebook Just got this messsge from my daughter who is a policewoman “Straight from the City of London Police fraud team - Extremely sophisticated scam going about this week, involving all banks. You get a message saying a payment hasn’t been taken e.g O2, Vodafone, 3, Giff Gaff or EE and to click here. As soon as you touch it your money is gone. They already have all your details and it’s the most advance scam the bank has ever seen. Pass this on to everyone please. This is straight from work this morning - the banks are being inundated with calls - thousands flying out of peoples accounts! Spread the word to your family and friends!”
Be vigilant !!!!

It's at times like this, that I'm glad I don't do online banking.

Reading the link yes I am sure it is a hoax so please don't spread it people. I will leave this up until I think everyone has read it. thankfully I didn't share it on FB.
