A new Standard Bank Internet Banking Scam is hitting inboxes...

I received a new scam in my inbox this morning - it targets Standard Bank customers and it goes something like this:

Subject: Standard Bank : Security Update Notification

If you click on the embedded link (which is obviously dodgy), it brings up a slightly modded version of the Standard Bank site, complete with links back to the real Standard Bank site... so it all seems pretty real.

I then tried typing in some profanities into the login boxes, and lo and behold, I got this screen...:
So regardless of what you type into the login boxes, this screen pops up, to try and make you think that something is actually going on, while the only thing really happening is that your details have now been logged and captured, for use by some jellyfish somewhere on the planet. 

No offence intended to real sea-faring, stinging-type jellyfish of course...

Be careful out there, internet-goers and email-receivers.
