Warning – don’t be fooled by any text messages you receive from HSBC saying your account has been locked.
I received an SMS from 07925 624942 stating
Your HSBC account has been locked for security reasons.
To re activate, please visit: https://hsbc.co.uk.customer-id2997476.com/?h=2
You can easily tell it’s a phishing scam because the actual domain is customer-id2997476.com not HSBC.
Out of interest I wanted to see what kind of information they were trying to steal.
Do not fall for this kind of phishing scam.
The fake URL looks even more convincing on a desktop browser and also includes a valid SSL certificate from Let’s Encrypt Authority X3
