HSBC banker sues Yahoo Singapore over online imposter

14 August 2012  |  4066 views  |  0 STOP

A Singapore-based HSBC banker has filed a lawsuit demanding that Yahoo hand over details of a user who impersonated him on its Web site and made offensive remarks about locals.

According to Bloomberg, Sandeep Sharma, a managing director at HSBC private banking arm, has asked the Singapore High Court to make Yahoo! Asia Pacific reveal the identity of a person using the name "Sandeep" and claiming to be Sharma.

The imposter made at least three posts in July on Yahoo sites, calling Singaporeans "highly incompetent" and saying foreigners are the country's future, according to the suit.

Sharma, who moved to Singapore from India in 2007, says in court papers: "I believe these posts will lead to and excite continued ill-feeling and disaffection among Singaporeans to foreigners like me living and working in their midst."
