This Upgrade was designed in order to provide a better and risk-free Online Banking session, during an attempt to upgrade your account into our newly-secured secured-server we were unable to update your account therefore leading us to send you this e-mail letter which was sent directly from our Secured Updating Server. You are required to click on the " Update Now " link stated below in order to update your account , clicking on the " Update Now " will take you to our external secured server ( Fully Secured ) where you will be required to fill in necessary information in order to complete your update process .
