HSBC Banker Sues Yahoo Singapore for Impostor’s Identity

Sandeep Sharma, a managing director at HSBC Holdings Plc’s private banking arm, claimed in a lawsuit he had been defamed by a Yahoo! Inc. user impersonating him and making offensive remarks about Singaporeans.

Sharma asked Singapore’s High Court to order Yahoo! Asia Pacific Pte to reveal details including the identity of the person using the moniker “Sandeep” and claiming to be Sharma. A closed hearing is scheduled for today.
