Top 10 Table Shows Natwest is the Email Fraudsters Favourite

Phishing Email
The UK’s only guaranteed anti-spam company has revealed that Natwest tops the financial services league table for the most amount of spam and fraudulent phishing emails.

A leading UK based anti-spam software company is today revealing the UK’s Top 10 most popular company names used by email fraudsters when targeting the personal finance industry and shows that Natwest is leading the way.

ClearMyMail reviewed all the spam and fraudulent emails that it had prevented from reaching customers in December 2007 in order to identify the Top 10 preferred financial services companies by fraudsters.

1. Natwest (41% of all phishing emails blocked were targeting Natwest Bank)
2. Citibank (27%)
3. HSBC (11%)
4. Abbey (6%)
5. Lloyds TSB (4%)
6. Pay Pal (internet transaction banking for likes of Ebay – 2%)
7. Royal Bank of Scotland (1%)
8. Nationwide (1%)
9. Halifax (0.8%)
10. MBNA (0.5%)

When looking at the top 5, the company is also able to reveal that during the month every one of its customers were sent an average of 18 fake Natwest phishing emails, 12 fake Citibank emails, 5 fake HSBC emails, 3 fake Abbey emails and 2 fake Lloyds TSB emails - all had been blocked by ClearMyMail.

Speaking about the results Dan Field, Managing Director of ClearMyMail said,

“Without any email protection UK online banking customers are at severe risk of being tricked into giving away their account details to criminal gangs. The Phishing emails used are very well constructed and often look exactly like a legitimate message from the bank”.

He continued,

“People without home spam and anti fraud email protection have to remain very vigilant as it has almost got to the stage where cyber-crooks are building up a portfolio of email databases containing contact information that is profiled to fit a certain bank or building societies typical customer in order to improve the success rate of their fraudulent attacks”.

The company has written a consumer guide on how to spot potential phishing emails and it is available for free by visiting
