I know that most of us are very aware of this, but just to be on the safe side I wanted to inform you of two scams today (one only here in Holland as far as I know and one abroad) sending people e-mails in which you are asked to click on a link and to enter some details.
Those sites look as the official sites of in this case Postbank in the Netherlands and Charter bank, but in fact there is a criminal organisation behind it looking for ways to withdraw money from your account (source: Dutch radio and television).

The same warning goes for Switzerland - Jun 5, 2005

I also got such an email, turned on the TV and the PostFinance (Swiss post konto) also gave such a warning. Take care the site looks authentic. These folks are probably operating all over.
