Probably one of the worst examples we’ve seen for a phishing email recently. Be aware though that these things do still catch people out. When you receive emails like this, always check the email address is from the correct website. Clearly in this case it isn’t. While this information cannot be trusted as this can be easily spoofed, many phishing emails like this one appearing to be from NatWest haven’t even bothered to add in the correct from email address.
Likewise, you will notice that the link they are asking you to click doesn’t go through to a NatWest website. Again, this information can be easily masked so you are best never to click on links in emails which appear to be suspicious. Always make sure that you open your web browser, go to the website directly without clicking on any links in emails to view notifications on your account. If the email was genuine, you will also have a notification within your account with the relevant information on.
