Dear Customer,

As part of our security measures to protect your online banking account, Abbey has introduced a recent internet banking security upgrade.

This compulsory upgrade requires you to authorize access to your Abbey online account on a fixed computer, marked by your IP address. This establishes a secure connection to your online account.

This upgrade ensures that only access from the computer registered to our security system are authorized.

Any access from a different computer will display a simple security tip from your personal records.

Any incorrect detail entered immediatialy triggers a security alert and restrict further access to your online banking details, preventing fraudulent activities.

This is one of our varying methods of checking online fraud by preventing a third party (unauthorized) access to your online banking information.

This is a compulsory upgrade, all Abbey customers are advised to adhere to this important security feature.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
