Apparently the HSBC have restricted access to my account until they have confirmed my identity. All I need to do is click on the link, go to the scammer's fake website and enter all my personal information, including my pass number, date of birth, card details, etc. Then, of course, the scammers can make as much unauthorized use of my account as they like!!
NEVER click on the link in a bank email, even if it does claim to come from your bank. Know the address of your real bank website and enter it directly in your browser. If you think there really is a problem with your account, phone your bank.
