Mmmm Cadbury's Creme Eggs....(Sorry that's what this reminds me of)


I once got a voucher for $50 dollars to spend in my Itunes account. I didn't believe it but being the stupid person that I am I opened the link to check it in case and it turned out be a trojan, my anti-virus software stopped me just in time. :sweatdrop:

I keep getting emails saying that my HSBC online account has been suspended due to suspicious activity...


... O'Really?


Halifax has recently changed their log-in system, so they posted a leaflet out to all account holders with online access as well as sending an email.


Watch out for fake facebook emails as well, I've noticed a few of them, "you have a new message, please log-in below to access it" with a link to a dodgy website which harvest your details & properly puts dodgy-stuff on your computer

This e-mail has been sent to you by HSBC Bank to inform you that we were unable to process

your online banking account profile. This might be due to a recent change in your personal

information. (eg: billing address, phone)


we request you to confirm and update your account information today here



HSBC Billing Department
