Its not your bank DO NO CLICK THE LINK!

Okay, been getting these emails lately. 
They are supposed to be "my bank".
Well I knew they weren't.  First of all the first 5 or so came from the Royal Bank.
Guess what?
I do not deal with them. 

This is what it looked like:


Please do not click the links in side!
In fact forward Royal Bank notices like this to  phishing@rbc.com !!

Now a few days later I got this: 


Now this is my bank!  Funny thing was that I found it in 2 emails that the bank didn't have.
I knew it was not real.
First thing I did was call my bank and tell them of the email and they gave me the address to send it too, which is : phishing@scotiabank.com !!

Now if you are getting these please report them to the bank they claim to be.
The Royal Bank email I found on their site.

If you can't find the phishing address for the bank please email me the name of the bank and will find the email to forward it to for you at: alicem@fortheloveofalicesfamily.com , 
 I will gladly find it for you, we need to stop these people from stealing from innocent people, we work hard for our money and these people think they can just come and take it!

So please report these phishing emails.

Now this also goes for things like Facebook etc.  They send messages to people, get into their Facebook accounts than resend the message to all of the persons friends. On so on and so forth.  All they need is one account to get access to many.  Since many have payment methods or phone numbers on their profile, as soon as they get in, they buy credits and transfer them (in some cases through games by losing to themselves.)  Also when they take control of an account they rename it to Facebook Security (or something like it)  

I always tell people report them!  Go right to the page and report that you believe the account has been taken over by another.  Also report the message as well.

One of the reasons why all my accounts are set up to contact my by phone if I or anyone tries to log in to any of accounts from anywhere other than my home (even with a password).  Also if anyone requests a change of password, it is sent to my phone and an email that notifies as well (really do love cell phones when it comes to security)  Even when I forget password at home my phone notifies me! 

Now this doesn't happen just on the internet.
If someone calls you and says they are from any computer(internet) company and they are from support and were told to contact you and check you computer or phone and need a password etc.  It is not real.  No company or organization (including banks, phone companies etc) will ever ask you for your password, NEVER!

And if you want to register a phone number that you know is a scam, you register (and check to see if any others got the same call) at 800notes.com.

Well I hope that helps some of you and remember this information should be passed along, tell everyone, save those from the headache of trying to reclaim lost money or email accounts etc!
