Due to recent fraudulent activities on some of HSBC Bank online accounts we are launching a new security system to make HSBC Bank online accounts more secure and safe. Before we can activate it we will be checking all HSBC Bank online accounts to confirm the authenticity of the holder.
We will require a confirmation that your account has not been stolen or hacked. Your account has not been suspended or frozen.
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.
