I have just received an e-mail advising me to change my standing order to a new bank account with Metro Bank.  I do not normally act on unsolicited, unverified e-mails asking for payment, especially when the e-mail tells me to ignore security warnings from my bank.

Has the Maker Space changed its bank account?

Can the bank details (or some part of them) be provided in the Wiki for verification?

I pose this question here so anyone else who is as obsessive as me can see the answer.

I can confirm the email is genuine. We are moving over to Metro from HSBC.

Yes. I too have discussed with the Directors in person and can confirm it’s a genuine request

Thank you Mark.  Can we put something on the Wiki,  even if it is only the checksum of the account number?

Thanks Mark.  I'm not sure how I missed it.  I think I did not read past the section on Payment.

All sorted and my standing order is changed.

Regards,
Mike.

Perhaps Directors could GPG sign their emails. Not hard to do.

Could you write a guide on GPG? I've always been a bit confused about which elliptic curve to select and type of Key RSA,ECC and how long you should set its validity for?
I've generally used GCHQ best practice guides in the past, but recently lost confidence in Govt agencies.

Kind regards
Mr.G
