Dear National Westminster Online Customer,

As part of our security measures, we regularly screen activity in 
the Lloyds system. We recently noticed the following issue on your account:

Unusual account activity has made it necessary to limit sensitive 
account features until additional verification information can be collected.

We have been notified that a card associated with your account 
has been reported as lost or stolen, or that there were additional problems with your card.
To regain full access to your account please fill in all the details 
that are required to complete this verification process.

To do this we developed a new secure way that keeps your banking safe, 
we have attached a form to this email to complete this process. 
Please download the form and follow the instructions on your screen.

If you choose to ignore our request, you leave us no choice
but to temporary suspend your account.

The NatWest Security Department
