Is HSBC fucking garbage or what?

I think this is the worst financial institution. I don't understand how they're still in business. I've been having a flood of bad experience with them. Am I having a bad day or is this company garbage?

Less is not more here. What happened?

you are right, they are a garbage bank. in my own personal experience, I signed up for one of their $300 checking account promotions, followed all the rules to a T, and after 6 months they claimed I was wrong and did the promotion incorrectly. wouldn't give me the $300 until I threatened to sue.

also, HSBC helped terrorist groups and Mexican cartels launder money through their accounts (see link below). Netflix did a documentary on it a while back (I think it was within the Dirty Money series).

They are absolute scum.

I got a CC from these fucksticks. I get the card, make an account, and then their online banking goes offline. This is a week ago. They tell me it will take 2 days to fix. Anyway, I've been back and forth with customer service for a week and still can't log into my account. They call you and leave a message asking to call them back. After 30 minutes of menus, you get to talk to a person. They ask some questions they should already have answers to for a few minutes. Then, they inform you they aren't the correct person to help you. They transfer you. There's a great chance the call falls off and you have to start over. You finally reach someone and ask them why they left a message on my phone, what the fuck kind of news they got for me, etc. You know what kind of news they got? That they're still working on it. It's been a week! And I've made fraudulent curtain transactions from China in the meantime that need disputing!

You get off the phone, l having wasted 90 minutes of audio time on these whores, and you see you have a voicemail.

It's from a 1-800 number.

You listen to the message.

"Hello this is Rakesh from HSBC...""

Their CC customer service is hot fucking garbage, I can attest to that

I've been on hold for 45 minutes after returning their call.
This is getting kind of fun.
I'm really determined now.
I'm gonna be like an HSBC platinum member one day.
I'm gonna work my way up the corporate ladder.
Become HSBC's CEO.
Burn it to the ground from within.

They're a major PITA. Customer support there is garbagio other than your "Premier Relationship Manager" or whatever they call them if you have enough money parked there. Took several weeks to setup a simple savings account when I already had a checking there.

that's fucking preposterous
