The OH has just had a couple of texts claiming to be from Halifax.
Be wary

Yes please be wary. Don't every click on a link. I get regular updates from www.neighbourhoodalert.co.uk/ and I then share on social media.

Having worked in Halifax for a couple of years I would be very wary of anyone who owned up to being from there :lol: :lol:
A perfect martini should be made by filling a glass with gin, then waving it in the general direction of Italy.

Never argue with an idiot......they will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

There is a UK Bank called “Halifax”
There has been attempts by fraudsters to scam people by sending them texts, claiming to be from the Halifax bank, and asking them to click on a link to the Halifax bank website to verify something (usually a made-up transaction or refund) only the link is to a fake website to try to get you to input your personal details and bank information on their fake website.
Step by step, one goes a long way.
