It is important for Metro Bank's customers to remember that they should never click on a link to sign into their online accounts, especially links in email messages. The safest way to sign into their online accounts is to go directly to www.metrobankonline.co.uk in their web browsers or search for "Metro Bank" using a popular search engine. If there is something wrong with their accounts or there is something that they need to do, they will be notified right after signing in.
Recipients of phishing Metro Bank emails like the one above, who have clicked on the link in them and have attempted to sign into the phishing website they were taken to with their accounts’ credentials, should change their passwords and contact Metro Bank immediately.
