Beware – spam

If you receive something that looks the same please delete immediatelly. HSBC and neither the outher banks will send such notifications over the email.

=========================================

In order to re-establish access to your Internet Banking profile, it is required that you run a Complete (may also be referred to as Deep or Full) virus scan on your computer.

INSTALL OR UNINSTALL / REINSTALL ANTI-VIRUS PROGRAM

Today’s computer viruses are very sophisticated.  It is for this reason that you must install (if not currently installed) or uninstall, then reinstall Anti-Virus program to ensure it is up-to-date and functioning properly.
We recommend using Panda Antivirus Pro 2012 – was a phishing website (!!). After you install or reinstall your Anti-Virus program, please be sure to update the virus definitions before continuing on.  If you need assistance with this process, please contact your Anti-Virus software manufacturer.

RUNNING YOUR ANTI-VIRUS PROGRAM

To get started, please launch HSBC’s secure logon web page by clicking the following link…
Business Internet Banking:  https://www.us.hsbc.com/1/2/3/business/online/business-internet-banking/log-on – phishing link!!
Personal Internet Banking:  https://www.us.hsbc.com/1/2/3/personal/online-services/personal-internet-banking/log-on – phishing link

NOTE:  HSBC’s secure logon web page must be visible behind the virus scan while it runs.  You should not enter your username. For most customers that will be Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.
Next, run your Anti-Virus software. To access your Anti-Virus software you generally need to click on Start, then Programs (or All Programs in Windows XP/Vista), then look for the folder with the same name as your Anti-Virus program. Click on that folder to view your options. If you need assistance running your Anti-Virus software, please contact your Anti-Virus software manufacturer.

AFTER THE ANTI-VIRUS SCAN IS COMPLETE

You will receive a pop-up message indicating the scan is finished.  Please take a “Print Screen” of this message (this is required even if no viruses/threats are found) by…

PC Based Computers Running Microsoft Windows (Most Customers):
…Hold down the ALT key on your keyboard, while simultaneously pressing the PRINT SCREEN key (sometimes abbreviated as PRINT SCRN).
NOTE:  If you are using a laptop you may need to press the Function key (sometimes abbreviated as FN) in place of the ALT key.

NOTE:  You will not see anything change when you take a screen shot.  Please open your word processor, such as Microsoft Office or Microsoft Works.  Click EDIT at the top of your word processor screen, followed by PASTE. You should then see a screen shot of the scan results appear in your word processor.  Save the document.

AFTER TAKING A “PRINT SCREEN” OF VIRUS SCAN RESULTS

Please email or fax the screen shot to HSBC.  Our e-mail address is  and our fax number is 716-841-2717.

When sending your email or fax please address it to the attention of “Virus Scans” and be sure to indicate your full name & reference number (found below).

AFTER SENDING YOUR VIRUS SCAN RESULTS

Please contact HSBC at the telephone number listed below.  We will reinstate your Internet Banking access and provide you with information on how to change your logon credentials.  NOTE:  After your HSBC Internet Banking access is restored you are required to change your logon credentials for the HSBC website to avoid being responsible for any future online fraud.
