Dear Sir/Madam,

Halifax online is constantly working to increase security for all Online Banking users. To ensure the integrity of our online payment system, we periodically review accounts. Your account might be restricted due to numerous login attempts into your online account. Restricted accounts continue to receive payments, but they are limited in their ability to send or withdraw funds. To lift up this restriction, you need to confirm your online banking details.

Click on the following link to confirm your online banking details.

You are required to provide all necessary information completely and correctly otherwise, due to security reasons, we may have to close your account temporarily.
