Re: Suspect EU vat refund email and attempted raid on my bank account

Seems to much of a coincidence but no one has reported it on the community as yet. This all seems to have quietened down now so it seems the fraudsters are giving us a temporary respite.

Re: Suspect vat refund email

No - I got the EU VAT refund phish several times earlier THIS year.

Re: Suspect vat refund email

@Anonymous There were quite literally hundreds if not thousands who got the email around January time. This is the first I recall of someone's bank account also being hacked / someone ordering a phone or phones.

There were conversations with senior management at o2 who were shall we say "non committal" and said it couldn't possibly be o2.

Can you keep us in the loop with what happens?

Re: Suspect vat refund email

Yes I know you got them this year Adele and we all have our suspicions on the source of the leaked information. Your account take over seems to be a further development but I was just saying we have seen nothing about this for a couple of months and I'm really surprised it came to nothing in the media.
