Therefore, the instructions in the fake message should not be followed and the links in it should never be clicked. The links will take potential victims to a fake National Australia Bank Limited website designed to trick them into stealing their National Australia Bank Limited's usernames and passwords, and other personal information. It is not recommended for online users to click on a link in an email message to sign into online accounts.
