This scammer that sent you this scam mail did try to forge a good story. There is a such person as Mark Moses, and he is working for the bank :
http://www.hsbc.com/about-hsbc/leadership/marc-moses

However, it does say plainly on the page :
Mr Moses lives in North London and is married with four children. He is a keen Arsenal supporter and enjoys playing tennis.


The # they gave you is located in North Carolina, and is a VOIP #. Combined with the fact that the email address they gave is a free and anonymous hotmail address, not a bank domain .com address, this is truly a scam.

Information on phone number range +1 910 541XXXX
Number billable as geographic number
Country or destination United States
City or exchange location Topsail Island, NC
Original network provider* Charter Fiberlink Nc-cco, Llc - Nc

The writing looks more African than French or Canadian. Why would a Canadian win a lotto in US dollars, and why would he insist that you open an account at a particular bank, which is in North Carolina, not in or next to Canada?
