Now check out the url of the link compared to this one
Not even secure either looks a bit dodgy to me. Now ive known of this scam before now they want you to enter your details so they get them and can access your account. Just thought id warn people in case no one has heard of this scam before do no enter your details if you get an email form halifax. I once got a message when i logged into my Barclays account online saying they would never email you asking you to re enter your details

main site is cross stiching, registered is webhosting and other site has an address to switzerland....most not been updated in a while, feeling they may have been hacked, or whoever registered new domain realised idiot who runs site registers it under his address...no scammer is that stupid to leave glaring details behind
