Fraudulent Lloyds Email

I've recieved a fraudulent Lloyds email asking for banking details. I can't find for the life of me an email address at Lloyds to report it to.

Anyone help with this?

Thanks for that. Email sent

Sometimes it's incredibly hard to find info on these sort of websites

I'm a Lloyds customer Andy.....if you post up your Bank Details, Sort Code and Password i'll report it for you

In all seriousness, its bloody annoying....previously I've had the phone call where they advise that your security has been compromised and ask for your account details to confirm its really you

When I get stuff like that (no matter which bank it purports to be from) I now forward it to email@actionfraud.org.uk which will hopefully deal with the matter eventually
From Zen Internet's newsletter:
SEND SCAM E-MAILS HERE
February was "Scams Awareness Month" when the government's National
Fraud Authority re-launched its "Action Fraud" 24-hour online reporting
service, aimed at reducing letter post and telephone scams said to be
cheating Britons out of millions of pounds per year. In March, Action
Fraud set up an additional reporting service to tackle scam e-mail
messages, establishing a dedicated e-mail address -
email@actionfraud.org.uk - where scam messages can simply be forwarded.
The plan is for all e-mails sent to Action Fraud to be shared with the
National Fraud Intelligence Bureau, run by the City of London Police,
for collation and analysis. "This will enable crucial intelligence to be
gathered and preventative action to be taken, seeking to disrupt the
fraudsters and close down the links between them", according to Dr
Bernard Herdan, CEO of the National Fraud Authority, who runs Action
Fraud. He added: "This is the first time we have been able to collect
and analyse scam mail and e-mails in this way. Collecting intelligence
is the key to us being able to disrupt the activities of fraudsters and
target their networks for closure". One bank - HSBC - has been running
its own scam reporting service since last year, asking targeted e-mail
recipients to forward any suspect messages involving the bank to
phishing@hsbc.com.
