Phishing

This information is then used for identity theft and fraud.

Bob Martin will only ask you to send personal details by email if it is responding to a query you have sent it online and these details are needed to answer your query properly. Bob Martin will never ask you to send any personal details by email unless you have contacted Bob Martin first.
