Beware of "HSBC Safeguard Action Required" Phishing Email

The email message below: "HSBC Safeguard action required," is a fake and phishing email message sent by cyber-criminals to trick the recipients into clicking on a phishing link within it. The link in the fake email message goes to a fake HSBC website created by cyber-criminals, to steal their potential victims' information, by tricking them into signing in with their user name and password, and submitting their personal and financial information. Once the cyber-criminals have received their victims' information, they will use the same information to hijack their accounts and steal their money.

    I was asked to contact a MrIan James on iamanjames@hotmail.com about safeguard.hsbc.com he said that I had wrote him a letter and that I should quote ref 1917330537. The thing is that I never wrote to this person and hope all is well with our account.

      I also received one this morning too, but as you have said it just doesn't feel right and most of all HSBC never email you like this and ask you enter personal information online.

    Received a couple of these emails now. Usually they will have "plc" or something like that on the sender's name if it's actually from HSBC, so look out for that.
