Phishing Email story

In my line of work, recognising and teaching people about phishing emails comes as second nature. Most of the time. Yesterday I applied for a new business bank account with Santandare via a popular comparison website. Today, I received an email from Natwest, thanking me for creating a new account and that the card etc will be on its way shortly, they just need some photocopies of my passport etc to finalise the account. I start to question myself. Im pretty sure it was Santandare that I approached. Fortunatly thats where the story ends. I concluded that the email was a phishing email and placed it in the spam tray. Be alert when dealing with emails asking for this type of information. Banks WILL NOT ask for personal information via email. Here endeth the lesson
