My name is Eufrey Matundan my accounts were closed by HSBC bank on April without informing or getting prior authorization from me. I don’t have any deposits that we’re ever returned or a negative balance in my account. So I don’t know why my accounts were closed and why HSBC bank is still holding on to my funds that is around $798.56 give or take a couple...

HSBC Holdings - Website/payments

They changed their website to only accept 'LINKED BANK ACCOUNTS' for payment now but they will not accept the information from either of my banks, meanwhile they are hitting my credit report even though I keep trying to pay them and the only way I can is by calling the phone number on the credit card and spending over 60 minutes to try to make a payment.

They are crooks who offer 'debt relief' then make it near impossible to stay current because the website has issues constantly and then they lock you out from paying online if you are late to force you to call and hold indefinitely hoping you will get impatient and not hang up.

These people are crooks.

They make their living off fees and penalties not standard banking.

Desired outcome: Cancelling my account, my desired outcome is for people to stop using them for credit or banking.

HSBC Holdings - Service/complaints

In November 2020, I contacted HSBC.ae for support with my bill. I had financial difficulties and needed help with my current bill. I asked if the fees could cease so I can focus on paying down the balance. I am in the middle of a tenancy court issue, where I am still paying for two apartments and utilities. During this time, I contracted covid and had to stay home from work. I had very little funds. HSBC ignored my concerns and continued charging me fees and confiscating whatever little money I received in my checking account. I could not afford to eat and take a bus. I mentioned the same story over 20 times to different customer representatives; however, I wasn't presented a settlement until June and it was 7, 000aed. There was no way I could afford it. Nothing has been done since, and the balance continues to grow. I was trying my best to take care of my financial responsibilities. I have never been taken advantage of like this ever in my life.

Desired outcome: Pay for the balance minus the fees from November 2020, when I asked for assistance

HSBC Holdings - Not able to get my money after account closure

The worst bank in UAE. Never deal with it. I used to have an account there for 15 years. One day when I was on vacation with my family, the bank close my account without any notification. I saw it online only. No one was able to explain me the reason or inform where are my money. Then I had to flight back to Dubai immediately. When I came to the bank they gave me the check in USD, I asked to give it on AED or cash. But bank deny. And now 3 weeks later none of the other banks in UAE accept this check! I am just having so much problem because of this. I lost my money that I was saving for 15 years!

HSBC Holdings - Unauthorised Transaction

I made a complaint regarding an unauthorized transaction from UberEats days before with so much difficulty as their hotlines are NEVER answered by agents- the call goes through and get disconnected after being put on hold for SO LONG! After finally lodging a complaint an agent reaches out to tell me that the team will investigate and get in touch with the merchant regarding this transaction, however after DAYS without a response when i ask them for an update they tell me that they will need ME to contact the merchant and that they are "unable to consider this transaction as not authorized."
WITHOUT EVEN REACHING OUT TO THE MERCHANT FROM THEIR END. PUTRID SERVICE, I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS BANK TO ANYONE!

Desired outcome: Get in touch with merchant and refund the amount

HSBC Holdings - Banking service

Worst bank ever
OMG, this is UNBELIEVABLE!
The staff soo rude and unfriendly.
The service is sooo poor
It's like you are the one to serve them
People please don't ever think to joint this bank. It was a nightmare for me!
It seems they don't care about the customer.
They blocked my account and after months of communications, emails, phone calls they come with a excuus with no explanation. Ohhh man. This is not acceptable

HSBC Holdings - international domiciliary account number;30058943

Please varify the account above with the account name Steve Mauri Abu. Is this a real account because I have HSBC Visa card for that account. The account had deposit of £550000.00 a winning promotion of Nokia Co UK. Please check if the money still exist because after completing all fees imposed by HSBC bank I was not issued pin number to use the card. The online service director Mr. Brian Robertson and Nokia UK Agent Dr. David Dean I believed collaborated and hijacked the winning funds. Please I need an audit to my Visa card account. Thank you

HSBC Holdings - customers services and loans.

Bad customers services.

Nobody cares about customer satisfaction.

I had an account with many banks in UAE but HCBS was my worst experience I had in my life.

I went direct to HSBC branch yas mall for my personal loan early closure, there I met Mr Rafiq who give me wrong information cost me around 800 and after that, I raised a request to refund money back as it's not my bad, but they reply was shoke as I received a call from another person working in same branch who call me in a bad manner telling me case closed we don't have right to refund your money back, and when I asked him back for further explanation he keep reading that he will close the phone if I keep asking or talking because he is busy with other customers.

this time a raised complain against him but the reply was disappointing that nothing happened and nobody told you anything wrong and case closed.
without even apologize

HSBC Holdings - debit card fraud

I faced two unauthorized transactions from my debit card account from HSBC yesterday. One a purchase of AED 472.38 from Etc IVR 101 and within seconds later a purchase of AED 286.40 from Etc IVR 101 ! I was shocked and I contacted my bank and I was asked to submit a dispute form and while on the conversation with a representative from customer care, another transaction of AED 2522.39 was attempted but declined . I have submitted the dispute form and blocked my card . This is very disappointing to see how trustworthy banks like HSBC could have unauthorized transactions processed ! I would like to know when my money would be refunded .

HSBC Holdings - e-statement of my credit card 5400419007969865

Name : Chin Jet Choon; Credit card no : 5400-4190-0796-9865

I would like to complain that this is the second time your bank has failed to send me the e-statement for the month of October 2019. As a result, I was charged a penalty for late payment and incurred the finance charge again.

When the case happened the first time in September, I called up to inquire about the finance charge and the penalty charge for the late payment. I was quite happy when your staff agreed to waive the charges for me followed by the assurance to send me the e-statement in future.

If this is going to happen again every month, I would be forced to make extra payment which is absolutely not necessary, to your bank. I am wondering why you can send all the promotion matters to my email but not the e statement.

I am very particular about my account and would not be happy to see those financial and penalty charges appearing in my account. I am considering to terminate my credit card if the situation is not rectified.

Thank you.

HSBC Holdings - poor response and ability to resolve issue

I had being using HSBC for 3 years and i am getting very disappointed to HSBC on following issue

1. My Visa signature credit card had been double charge with SST since last year and this issue haven't resolve until now.

2. I had being charged SST on my cancelled card.

3. The issue reported need to take 5 working day to resolve and i wonder why HSBC cannot make decision immediately. This lead to keep on dragging customer for quite some time.

4. Slow pick up on phone call

Please consider this as i would like to cancel my all my account with HSBC and i am tired on keep on waiting on my issue being address. In term benefit and response other bank is much better than HSBC.

Thanks for keeping me busy...

HSBC Holdings - unauthorised transaction on card no 4386759006314683

My HSBC credit card had been aunthorised transaction on 14th Oct, I called HSBC directly to cancel the card immediately when this transaction happen and they refunded me that amount on November after I fill in the dispute form.
However on January, HSBC sent me letter said that the merchant bank said the transaction is valid and they charge me back this amount and ask me to pay for it.
I already called customer service saying that this transaction is not by me and I refuse to pay. I even cancel the replacement card issued by HSBC after this unthorised transaction incident happened.
I'm not sure how the third party theft my card information and issued this transaction. There must be some leakage of information from the HSBC side as I didn't lost the card.
How can HSBC secure a customer by refunded the amount and then charge back the amount. I was very dissatisfied with HSBC. I'll not use any HSBC product in the future.

I applied for a credit card and was approved. There was a security issue with the card and so it was blocked. I started calling last Friday to resolve the issue. I was on hold for over 30 minutes so I figured I called at a bad time. I tried three other times at different times and I have yet to speak to anyone about this issue. Right now I am on hold and I...
