Friday, November 8th, 2013

Market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has issued a show cause notice to HSBC for allegedly using fraudulent and unfair trade practices with its client, singer and actor Suchitra Krishnamoorthi. This case was first exposed by Moneylife way back in April in 2012

Ha look what i received today. Isnt it a bit late in the day for HSBC to be sending out this disclaimer after they are done with committing all their fraud & losing all my money.

Why were they not sending these messages out 5 years ago instead of asking their officers to coerce us into signing blank documents ‘supposedly ‘in our best interest – “You may be out of town when this fund opens Madam & will lose out on a great opportunity. Uff – frauds

Dear Customer, we advise you not to sign or hand-over any blank or incomplete document/s to any HSBC staff. You could be putting yourself at risk by signing blank or incomplete documents such as account opening forms, Letter of Instructions for Mutual Fund purchase / switch / redemptions, Standing Instructions, Fund Transfers, Service requests, etc. Keep your personal information secure and protect your interests.

Bankers or Fraudsters?

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Banksters who fraud immediately quit their current job and are lapped up by other banks- my #HSBC manager Gautam Sewani now in a plush job with Citibank. I remember weeping to him about my losses and pleading to set things right before i actually went ahead and filed my legal complaint.
