Another fake bank site scam is getting around. Several people have received an email claiming to be from Westpac asking them to log into their account with their internet banking details. I suggest you ignore the email completely. The engrish used is a dead giveaway for a start so I don't think this one will fool very many people. The server that the scam is hosted on is another giveaway. If you have received one of these, you might like to report the incident to the Real Westpac Site.
