Default Santander Bank scam

If you receive an e-mail with a security notification that wants you to click a link that sends you to a page very similar to Santander's, DON'T DO IT. It's a scam. The page itself it's called nihonchiken. Just delete the e-mail.

These types of emails have been going around for years. If people are stupid enough nowadays to click them its their own fault. Same with 'i'm king um bongo, please give me your bank details so i can give you 28 million dollars....'

Banks will NEVER send an email saying 'click here' , they always say please log on and check your account.

I know, but posting it just in case. The page from that link looks exactly like the one from the bank, but the orthographic faults from the e-mail made me suspicious. Then I checked the link and searched about it and it was indeed a scam, and even though it seems to be a known one, hotmail doesn't seem to be smart enough to send it to the spam folder.
