The link in the email message goes to the fake or phishing NatWest website, which will ask the potential victims who have clicked the link to enter their NatWest's username, password, credit, personal information and other security information needed to hijack their accounts. If the potential victims enter the information requested, it will be sent to the scammers behind the fake email and phishing website. With the potential victims' information, the scammers will be able to gain access to their accounts, sell the information to the highest bidder and further scam the victims. In this case, the NatWest customers who were tricked can end up being victims of identity theft and credit card fraud.

NatWest's customers who have unknowingly clicked on the link in the email message are asked to change their passwords immediately and contact NatWest for help.

NatWest customers should never click on a link in an email message or anywhere else to login or sign into their online accounts. They should instead, always go directly to www.natwest.com and sign in from there.
