Posting news of this one since it avoided my spam filter, and it's always good to remind people about these scams. Basically, it's the standard "please give us your bank details so we can steal all your money" attempt and looks like this:

Dear Barclays member,

During our regular verification of Internet Banking Accounts, we could not verify your current information. Either your information has been changed or incomplete, as a result your access to use our services has been limited. Please Update your information.
# Login to your Barclays Online Bank Account

# Confirm your identity as a Barclays Online Banking Customer
Please fill in the required information. This is required for us to continue to offer you a safe and risk free environment.

  Thank you,
  The Barclays Team.

This is an HTML formatted email and the link shown above points to a very different domain:

Details for this are as follows:

dutch paediatric cardiac nurses association (DPCNA-COM-DOM)
AOV - IC 909, Geert Grooteplein Zuid
Nijmegen, 6535GA

Record last updated on 31-Mar-2005.
Record expires on 23-Oct-2006.
Record created on 23-Oct-2000.

Not quite sure why dutch nurses are trying to steal people's bank accounts but their website is clearly spoofing barclay's website Evil or Very Mad

Whedon: We will rule over this time slot, and we will call it... "This Time Slot".

Fox: I think we should call it... your grave!

Whedon: Ah, curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!

Fox: Ha ha HA! Mine is an evil die!
