Possible Neteller security issue?
I've had a Neteller account for a while now, but not used it much. I had an email a week or so ago telling me that I would get charged an inactivity fee if I hadnt used it again before a certain date. Fair enough, so I verified the account by sending them scans yesterday and they finished the process by calling me today.
About 30 mins ago, I registered my Lloyds TSB bank on my account. Within 10 minutes of doing so, this email dropped into the inbox of the email address registered with Neteller (although not exclusively by any means)...
"Important Notice - Lloyds Tsb

I did a WhoIs lookup on the domain given ("customer114293.com")...
customer114293.com Whois - customer11 4293 - Who.is
If you google the name of the registrant, you can see they are clearly trying to commit fraud.
Obviously, I didnt even think about clicking the link. But I am suspicious as I have never had an email like this before and it came to the email address I use for Neteller within 10 mins of me registering that bank with them.
Very possibly a huge coincidence, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
Anyone else had anything similar?
"Pay no attention to what the critics say. No statue has ever been erected to a critic."
Coincidence I'm sure. I had the same email three times last night and I don't bank with Lloyds and only use one of the address that got it with Neteller.
Exactly the same content apart from different numbers after the customer1234 bit. Must just be a spammer hitting a huge list of addresses, which I'm lucky enough to be on three times
