HSBC. Not!

They’re getting more dangerous, these scams. This one got past my spam filter (though another identical one was rejected). The usual clues, bad grammar and odd addresses, both present and correct – look for the spelling error, and mouseover the link to reveal http.gaopay.scripts/xxxxxx – obviously NOT an HSBC address. Problem is, how many people know how to check, or even bother to be suspicious? Oh, and one other clue – I don’t even have an HSBC account!

Dear Customer
