I have recently received two spoof emails whose purpose was to persuade me to reveal personal banking information. Of course I did not respond and give the information but instead sent copies of the emails to the banks concerned. I have received the following advice from one of the banks.

> Download the SafetyBar, a toolbar for Outlook and Outlook Express,
which identifies known spoof emails.
> Get eBay Toolbar with Account Guard which warns you when you're on a
potentially fraudulent (spoof) Web site.
> Frequently monitor your account for suspicious activity.<<<

I have searched for the Outlook Express Safety Bar but have not found it, or perhaps not recognised it. Please, how do I download it?

Kind regards. whatapalaver
