Fake and Phishing HSBC UK and GoDaddy Email - Transaction-ID019581

The email message below: "Transaction-ID019581," is a fake and was not sent by HSBC UK. The email was instead sent by cyber-criminals to trick their potential victims into clicking on the link within it, which will take them a fake HSBC UK web page. The fake page will ask the potential victims to enter their online banking userID, Date of Birth, Telephone banking security number, account number, sort code, full name, address, city, country and postcode, which will be sent to the cyber-criminals who have created the fake HSBC email and web page.

The cyber-criminals will then use the information to hijack the victims' accounts and steal their money or use the accounts in other fraudulent ways.
