ScamAlert: HSBC Phishing Email

UPDATE: I tried visiting the link in the email and it looks like HSBC has been proactive in preventing their customers from being defrauded... Kudos to the InfoSec team of HSBC!

If you have an account at HSBC, be aware that there's a phishing email circulating and you *may* get victimized if you are not careful. Here's the email as sent to my email address:
