Please be aware of fraudulent activity
Beware of online scams – Recently we are aware of a new way of phishing related to coronavirus. The coronavirus-themed scams, including phishing emails, fraudulent calls, and disinformation campaigns, may contain suspicious links of files or an app called ‘Coronavirus Map’. These scams serve no intention of providing useful information, but instead are designed to deliver malware to devices, and capture user names, passwords, credit card numbers and other sensitive data. If you are suspicious of any e-mail/SMS that claims to come from HSBC, please call our hotline +852 2748 8288 to verify, or delete the item without opening it. This caution should apply to all unexpected e-mails/SMS with links or attachments. To find out more, please read our Security Tips.
