    Today I had the usual email attempting 'Boss out of the Office can you make a payment fraud' The Fraudsters provided two bank accounts for payment:

    Name: Mahmood Inc.
    Sort code: 110581
    Account Nos: 01894716

    Account Name: Black contact limited
    Bank name: Natwest Bank
    Account number: 47223316
    Sort Code: 010657
    Bank Address: 387 Oxford Road Manchester M3 9PS

    I have tried without avail to pass this information to Natwest or Halifax as Natwest don't answer the fraud line and Halifax don't even have a contact number if you are a none customer.

    This is at a time when the banks are trying to push the onus for fraud liability onto the customer.
    Does anyone have a similar experience of banks pretending to take fraud seriously?

    Chances are they're already aware of it.
