This scammer writes to tell me that the HSBC have restricted access to my account because of unauthorised use. Obviously this is a cause of concern to the scammers. If access has been restricted how will they get their sticky hands on my cash? They’ve got the answer though. All I have to do is go to their fake website, give them all my account details and hey-presto, they can log into my account and empty it for me!
