" Dear client of the Halifax Internet
banking, The recent cases of the fraudulent use of clients accounts forced the
Technical services of the bank to update the software "...
Another instance where forged web content is presented in front
of a genuine web page giving the impression that the forgery is a pop up window
generated byt he genuine page (see images below).
The forged page is heavily scripted, and users wont be able to see the genuine
URL by using a right click of selecting file properties. The true URL is http://www.halifax-online.co.uk_mem_binformslogin.asp.userset.net:4903/h/formslogin.htm
which resolves to an anonymous DNS service and not the Halifax Bank.
If you have received this email, please remember that it is very
common for these email scams to be redistributed at a later date with only slightly
different content or the same but with the fake page(s) hosted by a different
provider. Also, once you have received one of these hoaxes, it is also common
place to receive at least another one and usually a day or two after the first,
although not necessarily from the same apparent sender.
The Spoof Email ...
bogus web page (the pop up style window - in front of the genuine page - contains
the forged web content) ...
