Lloyds TSB Bank Email Scam

Account Review – please read carefully:

Dear Customer,

Lloyds TSB Bank is constantly working to increase security for all Internet Banking users.
To ensure the integrity of our online payment system, we periodically review accounts.

Your account might be place on restricted status. 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 login into your account (with your username or Memorable word and your password), then you have to complete our verification process. You must confirm your credit card details and your billing information as well. All restricted accounts have their billing information unconfirmed, meaning that you may no longer send money from your account until you have updated your billing information on file.To initiate the billing update confirmation process. Click here (link removed) to continue to Internet Banking update.

Note: Not having an account with this 'venerable' institution', I can't imagine why any one would click on the link, but still... Not as amusing as some of the other phishing attempts but I supppose they hope to net a few unwise recipients who actually do have accounts with a legitimate Lloyds bank.
