    Got this email there was bt logos on it and a amount to be paid that bore no resemblance to what I pay and I pay dd anyway so obviously a scam but for someone who pays a bill it was very realistic. Beware:Eeek::thumb:

    Dear Customer,

    This e-mail has been sent to you by BT Internet to inform you that we were unable to process your most recent payment of bill. This might be due to either of the following reasons:

    1. A recent change in your personal information. (eg: billing address, phone)
    2. Submitting incorrect information during bill payment process.

    Due to this, to ensure that your service is not interrupted, we request you to confirm and update your billing information today by clicking here.

    If you have already confirmed your billing information then please disregard this message as we are processing the changes you have made.

    Regards,
    BT
    Billing Department

    Thanks for your co-operation.



    Accounts Management As outlined in our User Agreement, BT (r) will
    periodically send you information about site changes and enhancements.

    The "Dear Customer" should be the giveaway but no doubt some will be taken in. The first sentence also has a grammatical error but probably harder to spot. However, even if it looked genuine I would ignore it. Reputable companies, even BT (!) will write to you if there is a problem over payment. Indeed, you wouldn't be able to stop them writing, phoning, sending round the bailiffs etc.
