Dear Abbey National customer,

During our anual account maintenance and verification procedure we have detected a slight error in 
your billing information.

This might be due to the following reasons:

1. A recent change in your personal information (ie. change of address, email address)

2. An inability to accurately verify your selected option of payment due to an internal error 
within our systems.

Please verify your information. To do this we have attached a form to this email. Please download 
the form and follow the instructions on your screen.

NOTE: The form needs to be opened in a modern browser which has javascript enabled (ex: Internet 
Explorer 7, Firefox 3, Safari 3, Opera 9)

We are requesting this information to verify and protect your identity. This is in order to prevent 
the illegal activity of Abbey National Online accounts.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
