Dear Abbey's Internet Banking Holder,

Abbey National PLC has been receiving complaints from our customers for unauthorised use of the Abbey Online accounts. As a result we periodically review Abbey Online Accounts and temporarily restrict access of those accounts which we think are vulnerable to the unauthorised use. Due to our recent upgrade of all online accounts,it is of utmost necessity for all Abbey Bank customers to confirm their Account Information Correctly. This is one of our varying methods of checking online fraud which seems to be on the increase.

This message has been sent to you from Abbey because we have noticed invalid login attempts into your account, due to this we are temporarily limiting and restricting your account access until we confirm your identity.
