First of all thanks for all the information and effort you have put in – been amazing support. I finally got somewhere with HSBC after following your suggestions and emailing CEO etc.
Anyway, after first contacting them on 15th May I was able to apply today, weeks later, for a feeder account only to get an instant decline!
Question for you – have you heard of anyone appealing to HSBC and being successful? Going to give it a try anyway and see what happens…… Onwards! Thanks again!
Note: Very few get a second chance to be honest after appealing, unless there was an obvious mismatch on your personal details when they checked as part of their KYC checks, which needs correcting before re-applying obviously.
