Bank Phishing Text Scam

One of our wonderful supporters has kindly shared a screenshot of the below scam text message they received which is designed to trick the recipient into providing their personal information. The message purports to be from Lloyds Bank and claims that a new recipient has been added to the payees on the account and provides a link to click if you had not added the new payee.
