    For information there appears to be a spam text purporting to come from HSBC saying that there has been suspicious activity on your account. As I don't have any HSBC accounts it must be spam/phishing attempt

    I had one the other day too. I've got a HSBC account, but didn't click the link in the text, instead I went direct to online banking to check...

    I have had loads from many different banks, funnily enough not one ever from the actual bank I bank with, seriously you would have to be unlucky to fall for it.

    I received one on the weekend, I've also got an account with HSBC and just deleted it.
