Dear HSBC Customer,

Due to the high number of fraud attempts and phishing scams, it has been decided to implement EV SSL Certification on our Internet Banking website.

The use of EV SSL certification works with high security Web browsers to clearly identify whether the site belongs to
the company or is another site imitating that company's site.

It has been introduced to protect our clients against phishing and other online fraudulent activities. Since most Internet
related crimes rely on false identity, HSBC went through a rigorous validation process that meets the Extended Validation guidelines.
Please update your account to the new EV SSL certification by clicking on the link below.

Here you'll find any new messages you have waiting for you and if you want to get in touch with us or reply to any new messages from us, you can do so from there.
As this e-mail is an automated message, we can't reply to any e-mails replied.

Thank you for choosing HSBC Bank.
