Just to let you know that there is a con going around at the moment.

People receive the letter attached below. The free phone numbers in the letter don't belong to Lloyds. If you call them they will try to con you. Ignore or report if you receive one of these CON letters. Not sure if similar letters have been sent 'on behalf' of other banks.

The number that has been posted does belong to Lloyds. Just checked with their Phonebank team who transferred me to their Fraud Operations team.


They verified it as their number. Note I rang on 0345000000


We could do with some help from you.

Hm Ok. I was told by the person who received the letter that they called the Lloyds NEW numbers

- the ones you probably rang(not these in the letter) and Lloyds told them that they did not send this letter and it is a CON and to ignore it.



I have not received the letter myself so can't confirm the above information as 100% genuine but thought it is worth posting.


If you think the information is not relevant please delete the post.

The payment they refer to within the letter, is it something you were aware of ?

CtizenB the above letter I uploaded belongs to somebody I know who e-mailed it to me to make me aware of the CON.



All I know is that she contacted Lloyds directly and they told her that they have not sent the letter..

. I cannot be sure how genuine the whole 'thing' is but thought that it is worth posting just in case anyone reading the forum receives the same kind of letter...

Unfortunately I don't know anymore information...

its not a con neither has it been sent by anyone dodgy.



I've received several of these over the years with Lloyds.



it simply means they are suspicious of a payment trying to be made to another party from the named account.



all that needs to be done is to phone up the number and verify IF the person named

did actually try and make a payment to NATWEST recently.



if they did not, then it means the fraud team have done their job

and prevented an unauthorised payment.



as they mention telephone banking

i'd suggests it was done via that method.




please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
