SECURITY UPDATE - 18/11/13
Fraudsters are continuing to send scam e-mails which claim to be from us. These e-mails aim to trick the recipient in to clicking a link which takes them to a page looking like a genuine HSBC page. Typically, this page asks for internet banking log on information.
Remember, HSBC will NEVER send you an unexpected e-mail containing a link.
If you ever receive an unexpected e-mail from us, which contains a link, please ensure that you delete it immediately. Under no circumstances should you click on the link as the resulting page may try to install malicious software on your computer.
To help protect you and your business from internet fraud, we offer Rapport security software free of charge to all Business Internet Banking customers. Rapport checks that you are accessing a genuine HSBC site and warns you if you try to enter your log on details in to a counterfeit site.
We recommend that you install Rapport on to all computers you plan to access Business Internet Banking from. Download Trusteer Rapport by clicking here .
Please remember as well, we will never phone you and ask you for your internet banking log on details.
