Dear Valued Customer,

 


Due to  the drastic increase on online fraud, HSBC has developed a

 


new security system. This is highly recommended security system which

 


is linked with your registered phone number with HSBC.

 


HSBC will automatically call you when You attempt to log-in to your

 

online banking account  or an attempt to make paymets. Access to your

 

Online Banking has been suspended untill you upgrade to the recommended security system

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
