    This is the real HSBC Global website; http://www.hsbc.com/
    This is the real HSBC UK website, http://www.hsbc.co.uk/1/2/

    The AA419.org has a list of 45 fake websites using the name HSBC in one for or the other, one is still active at this time.
    WARNING, site listed below is a fake, it is not a real bank.
    HSBC Bank http://www.hsbcbnk-uk.com/

    Other site listed that are no longer active are;
    HSBC BANK LONDON
    HSBC London
    And 42 others.

    Yes, you friend is being scammed with a 419 scam, also called a Nigerian scam.

    OK, your friend has been giving a stranger from Nigera $70,000 over a 2 year period, and hasn't seen a dime yet....and he still wants to know if it's a scam or not??

    I'm feeling like this is a fake post....please tell me you made up that story.

    I agree, it makes me feel sick to my stomach that some one blows that much money getting scammed. I don't know whether to feel bad for the guy or call him a sucker. =S

    Why should you look there? Because it's not a get rich scam.
    It's my store! I got it up (almost gotta add a few items and spell check LOL) I got domain hosting and email accounts. I sent out my application for sales tax. I'm so excited. Also check out my blog at myspace page

    On Thursday the scammers will come up with yet another reason to ask him for more money - this is what has been going on for two years and it won't stop until he realises he's being scammed or he runs out of money, whichever happens first.

    Unfortunately, most victims who are in this deep have real problems accepting that they've been scammed and their money is gone. I hope your friend is not like this but be prepared for him to get angry and deny what's obvious to you and everyone else.

    You and/or your friend might find the following websites for victims of internet fraud useful: www.scamvictimsunited.org and http://fraudwatchers.org

    If your post is real, please talk some sense into him. Show him this site, and try to find the Dateline special that deals with the Nigerian Email Scam. It's excellent! You may be able to find parts of it on YouTube. Chris Hanson exposes these dirtbags.

    Once he's lead to another dead end tomorrow, maybe you can talk to him. It's hard to believe that people still fall for this, but I guess they do.

    Make him become a regular poster to this site......could be a sort of rehab for him.

    Good Luck!

    I forgot to add that your friend should report this crime to the police. They won't do much but these crimes need to be recorded so that eventually law enforcement will have to start taking them more seriously than they do at the moment.

    Also, if he's given the scammer any financial information such as his bank account details, he should tell his bank immediately.

    Dear Mr. ******



    It is never our obligation to look for investor for you. The money we requested from you is just our services charge. We have a lot of transfer for tomorrow that is why we cannot transfer yours therefore we have scheduled yours for Friday morning.



    Please without the payment of the service charge we cannot proceed with the transfer. We contacted you because your information was submitted from United Nation for the delay from HSBC bank. Please comply for us to serve you well. Make the payment to our cashier Mrs. Erica Ryder through western union or money gram and send the information.



    Thanks for your attention.



    Andrew F. Cole.
