    AIB email......Scam??



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Just had an email, purportedly from AIB, they want to know my Date of Birth.

    This strikes me as unusual, makes me think of a possible scam.

    Anyone else had these?
    Britons were wild camping long before campsites, it's a basic human right.

    You need to enter your DOB to access pdf doc which has info about what you will require to have in place after breakfast. Nothing sinister about it, many companies use same/similar techniques when sending out info to their customers.

    I accessed info by entering my DOB, then saved doc to my file folder.
    The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive.

    Not really, Coll. It is an extra element of security.

    On a different note, with so many scams doing the rounds, it is no wonder people are so guarded. Which is a good thing.

    It's long been the same process with documentation via email from AIB. They already have a customer's date of birth, so they allocate it to you as a password to prevent anyone else from opening attached documents. Phil uses (or used - haven't done it for a while) the same logic on Wildcamping... using your already provided email address to allow access to the POI downloads.
