Metro Manila Philippines resident questions HSBC email

RC in the Philippines said: “I am a resident of Metro Manila Philippines. Below is the content of the email I received and I question the validity of this email:
“We wish to notify you again that you were listed as an Heir and a
beneficiary to the total sum of Five Million British Pounds (£5,000,000.00)
in the codicil and last testament of a deceased customer. (Name now
withheld since this is our second letter to you).

We contacted you the second time because his Deposit Bond with us
stipulated that this fund should be paid directly to you should incase of
his death.

On receipt of this notice, we request you to kindly acknowledge
officially to enabling us file in all necessary documents for the release of
your inheritance.

Please call urgently or contact this bank via a reply email for your
payment procedures.

Yours Faithfully,

Denis Brown.

Director, Foreign Operations
F.D Bank London UK,
A Division of HSBC Bank Plc.”

May I know the authenticity of this matter.”

Editor’s note: I question the validity of this email. I expect the third largest bank in the world to contact you via certified registered mail or courier instead. Perhaps HSBC can answer your question? A quick Google search shows no F.D Bank in London nor a relationship with HSBC. Do not take our word for it but I think your email is a fraud.
