These scams are unfortunately very common, where fraudsters send fake texts and letters pretending to be from genuine banks, in a bid to get people to hand over money or personal or banking details.
Another Twitter user, Nick Jarvis-Davies (@Nick_JDavies), previously warned he was constantly getting fake messages purportedly from Santander.
He said in a message to the bank: “I don’t have a Santander account but I receive these messages weekly, I report them but they still keep coming.
“Exactly what steps are you taking to stop these fraud/scam messages? I’ve circled the number the message came from, can you not do anything with that?”
