why dont u just login to your account the proper way, by typing in the url into the address bar and check your statement as normal?

I wouldnt ever click on a bank link that was provided in an email.

How would anyone ve stupid enough to fall for this ? On previous occasions when payment has been sent to you, did you ever get an email from HSBC ?

To be fair, I can see this catching out a lot of people. Lest we forget that plenty of people (if not the vast majority) are just not internet savvy, and aren't wise to things like this. All it needs is for them to get a rush of excitement or curiosity to click that link. It may be a ridiculous thing to do from our perspective, but quite simply not everyone knows about things like this, as publicised as they are.
