DON'T LET PHISHING CATCH YOU

Kent Trading Standards have issued a warning  to be vigilant regarding e-mails that people might receive which appear to be from their bank.

The e-mail may ask for confirmation of personal information, pass words or the PIN numbers that are used with credit and debit cards.

Banks NEVER email customers asking for this type of information.

This type of fraud attempt is known as 'phishing' and is very common.  NEVER respond to such requests. Report the email to both the Bank concerned and your internet provider.

Always make sure that you take great care of your personal information.
