An alert for Lloyds customers: fake Lloyds bank letters are being sent. They replicate Lloyds template, including logo, address, and signature from a customer service representative. The letter informs the recipient that there have been some unusual transactions on their personal account and invites them to call a number highlighted in bold to confirm the transactions are genuine. When the victim calls, an automated message asks the caller to enter their card number, account number, and sort code, followed by their date of birth, as well as the first and last digit of their security number. Lloyds bank has confirmed that the phone number and letters are fake.
If you are ever suspicious about correspondence from your bank, you should call the customer service number on the back of the bank card. To report a fraud or cyber-crime, call Police Scotland on 0300 123 2040 or visit http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud.
