Nedbank fraud: Phising with anti-phising

A couple of days ago I received one more e-mail appearing to originate from Nedbank Limited. The e-mail was about some new security measures taken by the bank to prevent fraud. The e-mail, as you can see bellow, is asking the user to download the attached file which is a link to the false logon page. Having tried to access the link today appeared to not work. Probably the service provider realised this was a fake page or the incident has been reported and disabled the account. Banks never send such e-mails, never require users to confirm their details in that way. Only the bank’s official page (assuming there’s no DNS poisoning) is the most secure way to keep up to date. Even if you think there is something suspicious with the banks website, you can always call them and ask for assistance.
