 The email is quite well presented - the 'Can't see this email?' question at the top is a good example of how spammers use regulations to sidestep any susupicions we may have about the authenticity of an email.

If you click on the 'can't see this email?' link you are taken to: http://micato.co.uk/wp-admin/includes/036f707f904b5d1f9018d3085a975597/info/login.php?assets.adobedtm.com/5165c8c319825f6ec3fb78d0a8dcc1054ab35a3d/satelliteLib-08b84ffc82250dd93a29554e43774d72e7c1876b.js 

It is important to note in the above link the fact that the site is not secure (it begins http and not https) which is an instant and certain indicator that this is not a real banking site.

The site is already labelled by Google as deceptive:

The site itself looks similar to Natwest:

 

But is obviously unsecured and way too slow for a real bank.

Report the originating email and the website as fraudulent and stay vigilant.
