DOCTORS are urging the government to confirm its online banking details before account access is suspended.
Local GPs and consultants have been sending a series of increasingly urgent emails to the Treasury this week warning that account security has been compromised and advising them to act now.
A BMA spokesman said: "We started off with a friendly note about an online banking survey, but it escalated quickly to a full-scale warning to reactivate the account.
"I think next time we'll try and sell them the secret of how to make $62,000 a week by working from home."
A Treasury spokesman said: "It's reassuring that they have acted so quickly to warn us of the potential security threats.
"Although I have to say the poor spelling provides shocking evidence of the damage done to our education system by Tony Blair and his fancy friends.
"One of the emails was addressed 'Dear Valude Custommer'. I expect the prime minister will want to review that."
The BMA spokesman added: "We expect to start draining the money this afternoon. Hopefully we'll have made off with about £2 billion by tea time."
