British bookmakers have alerted their customers to the scam known as \’phishing\’, following a spate of bogus e-mails received by clients of Betfair, Bet365 and ToteSport in the past few weeks.

The phoney e-mails claim to be from the \’security department\’ of the online bookmaker concerned, but have the intention of extracting personal information that can be used to to gain access to the accounts.
