Websense Security Labs has received reports of a new UK phishing scam that does not target any particular financial or e-commerce brand.
Instead users receive an email from a bank welcoming them as a customer, and claiming that they are the beneficiary to funds from the 'Alliance Security and Finance Company' in Amsterdam.
The email includes a URL to the bank and provides a username and password to log-in to their 'account'. When the user logs in, the account information is displayed along with a balance of more than $9m.
The website then requests the user to transfer the funds to their own bank account, and asks for details of that account in order to perform the transfer.
