My congratulations to the HSBC for being the subject of the 100th entry on this blog! Probably not an accolade they will particularly cherish!
Apparently there are concerns about my account. All I have to do is give the scammers my account details and they can test out the security to their hearts concent - at least until they've emptied it of its contents.
Ignore the email. Delete it and don't click on any links. The links don't take you HSBC they redirect you to the scammers site.
