“Horrible Phone Banking Services.”

Written on: 31/07/2017 by MariahMcGuire (1 review written)

I received my new credit card for which I was asked to call them to activate. I tried reaching them for close to 2 hours in vain and all I could hear was automated message. I tried reaching my Advance customer services and was able to get through them but they wouldn't address the credit card issue since it wasn't linked to my bank account yet. I think HSBC has gone bankrupt. They should sell this bank to someone else and focus on getting some Non Banking Financial Services to sell personal… Read Full Review

“Worst customer service ever”

Written on: 08/03/2017 by KayaNicholson348 (1 review written)

Was asked via letter to contact HSBC regarding urgent matters, they have no Email or message facility (as I understand it is only available at "certain times") and each time I tried to call at varying parts of the day there has been at least a 20 min wait. I do not understand how a Global banking company with huge profits can have such bad customer service, I live in Australia now and have an account with NAB wwhich has a much better internet banking app and they actually answer the phone!… Read Full Review

Fpon's Response to bijuviswanath's Review

Written on: 06/05/2014

100% agreed; especially with the latest upgrade of their 24x7 automated. It is even more NON-human banking I ever experience. For moment, I thought HSBC was owned by robots. The so-called Upgrade to me is a downgrade of service. Thumbs down totally.

“Philipines worst service possible!”

Written on: 21/11/2012 by agile (4 reviews written)

I called to try to get a replacement debit card as mine had been destroyed by the bank branch. I was promised that the pin and card would BOTH be posted to my home address! The pin arrived but NOT the card. On enquiring I was told that the card had not been sent to my address as I was advised but to the branch but as not collected had been destroyed! Now HSBC refuse to replace the card. Now I am going to have to complain to the Banking Ombudsman as HSBC refuse to take any interest !… Read Full Review

“Awful!!”

Written on: 24/06/2012

Just getting beyond the security questions is like a mental decathlon, how am I supposed to remember who I paid £13.82 to last week? I could've looked it up through internet banking but then what's the point of telephone banking?! This is the last straw really, as soon as I'm able I'm saying good-bye to HSBC!… Read Full Review

“Worst call centre ever !!!”

Written on: 06/04/2012

I am from Malaysia and whenever I call HSBC on their enquiry number stated on their website, I reach what I believe is their call centre in Philippines ( judging from their accent ). These so call tele - bankers are the worst and most irritating that I have ever encountered. Not only is their accent so difficult to understand, they are sarcastic and consistently imply that I have called the wrong number or press the wrong button. One of the girls actually gave out a sigh of impatience. It is… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/01/2011

I applied for an HSBC mortgage because it was a "Best Buy" but I have never encountered worse customer service. Everytime I needed to speak with anyone I had to call their oversaes call centre. The staff were completely unable to progress my application and completely uninterested in my plight. After 2 weeks I abandoned HSBC and called my current lender, Alliance & Leicester. Their UK staff were really helpful, understood my issues and got me sorted… Read Full Review

“This is the worst telephone contact centre I have ever...”

Written on: 21/12/2010

This is the worst telephone contact centre I have ever encountered. The representatives do not speak or understand English well enough to communicate important information. They have no knowledge of anything other than the limited computer system they have been given. It is apparently impossible to be transferred to someone who works for the bank. DO NOT USE HSBC if you need telephone banking services. I am now closing my accounts and going elsewhere… Read Full Review

“Very poor service from one of U.K's worst high street...”

Written on: 20/05/2010

Very poor service from one of U.K's worst high street banks, just about every time I call them the person on the phone is unable to do what I ask of them. This is often some thing as simple as making a payment between accounts takes 3 different department and 15minutes on 0847 number!! I use a different bank for my current account and have never had such issues,as soon as my loan is paid I will never use HSBC again!!… Read Full Review

“I am furious with HSBC. They have regularly...”

Written on: 31/12/2009

I am furious with HSBC. They have regularly overcharged fees, ignored my instructions, mishandled my calls, lied to me and fiddled my account to such an extent that I will be closing all my accounts shortly. Trying to talk to anyone is a nightmare long code punching in, long waits with the endless HSBC theme tune, no-one able to answer my questions about a foreign transaction. Why can't I know or agree an xchange rate before I bank a cheque for several tens of thousands of dollars. I could be… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/08/2009

An absolute nightmare trying to communicate with HSBC, just do not expect to receive what you have requested! When you receive the written communication it has a telephone number to ring in the case of difficulties, when you ring it you are told "you have rang the wrong number" 5 bounces later you are back to the beginning!… Read Full Review

“I've banked with HSBC personally for over a decade,...”

Written on: 30/07/2009

I've banked with HSBC personally for over a decade, and for nearly five years as a business customer. I've just opened a business account for a new business with Barclays - because HSBC's telephone and internet support has become a bad joke. Any electronic payment to HMRC is a nightmare; HMRC give you the sort code and account number that you need to make the payment, but you can't use them because HSBC have these pre-determined 'beneficiaries', with their own codes (eg HMRC CUMB) but you can… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/09/2008 by prunella (7 reviews written)

I banked with HSBC from when I was 18 up to age 54. Always found them very good and helpful. Good for very simple transactions. Note that if you make an arrangement with your local HSBC manager, his instructions are not passed on to their mortgage dept, and in our experience are not honoured by them. We found that one dept is unable to talk to another dept and the customer can be held to ransom in the middle. Be warned!… Read Full Review
