Despite HSBC Getting My Name Wrong They Paid My BBL

Omg. After around 18 days of waiting… HSBC finally respond to my BBL application and address me as “Mr Jones” even though I’m “Mr James” – not going to hold my breath for how this will progress

May 28: Applied to HSBC for BBL via HSBC personal account.


June 18: Email addressed to slightly incorrect name asking for my tax return (even though I already submitted it in the application on Day 1).

June 22: Asked for eSignature on loan documents.

Will update when (and if) payment comes through.

Money in account 32 mins after I signed loan agreement!

But more importantly, thanks for helping all the people on Twitter that were really struggling! I think you’ve brightened a lot of people’s years
