Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email, apparently from my bank. The reality is that it was sent by criminals that want me to give them my personal information, so that they can empty my account, or use the information for identity theft.

Go to the phishing page to see more stories about phishing.

If you received a similar email, you should go to the homepage to read more about 419 fraud.

Such attempted frauds only work if you dont upgrade your HSBC details. Also, a copy of this message has been sent to your HSBC online banking messages too.
