HSBC "Allowed money laundering" a must read
A US report has found that lax controls at HSBC, Europe's largest bank, meant Mexican drug cartels were able to launder billions of dollars for seven years.

The investigation by the Senate also says US regulator knew HSBC Holdings PLC had a poor system to detect problems but failed to take action.

The report by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee also found that some bank affiliates skirted US government bans on financial transactions with Iran and other countries.

And HSBC's US division provided money and banking services to some banks in Saudi Arabia and Bangladesh believed to have helped fund al Qaeda and other terrorist groups.

Surely this is major proof of how our ultra corrupt banking system works...
All require criminal prosecution...
People (normal citizens), lose their lives and go to death row for drug trafficking!!

The bankster cartel that run the world is nothing but mafia.

'HSBC to apologize for money laundering'

[link to www.aljazeera.com]

What I don't understand is, if a private citizen behaved this way he would be put under the prison (or worse). But a group of CEOs and top-level managers can get off Scott-free with a slap on the wrist and a simple apology. WTF?

Guess that's the big-wig corporate shield for you. The rest of us are punished for our serious misdoings (as we should be) and the wealthy-elite always have a get out of jail free card.

HSBC huge crooks.

We paid off our credit card with them and canceled it. 8 months later we get a statement showing we owed for our annual fee. Now they are trying to get more money out of us for a card we long ago canceled and paid in full. After I read this they don't know whats coming to them. I work for a collections lawyer and we may sue for all money ever paid to them above the actual merchandise we charged. Plus harrassment because they call all day long now.

I am wondering if the change is why they are still trying to bill you the fee..I know I got a letter a few months back explaining the take over by CO of the accounts,etc.I dont think it fully went into effect until July.You may have a different type account because I have never been charged an annual fee and I have had the cards for almost 7 years.

Yea, hilarious right?

Think next time I'll tell the medical bill collectors "I'm sorry" because I can't pay thousands in full - maybe they'll let me off the hook! cool2

Thanks for the pin!
this imo is sooo important for the sleeping friends and family... they skimmed briefly over the issue on channel 4 news... apparently the mafia bank hsbc are being fined, outrageous and downright tyranny, buying their way out of this one?...

In the hearts and minds of the masses, definitely not!

Re: HSBC "Allowed money laundering" a must read
The royal bank of canada is just as scummy. Lots of interesting shit happens around my life. Like the mexicans or whoever that stole all my art and notes and orange and white shoes etc the last time i was down here. its like a big, lets steal and wreck chriss idenity so a bunch of thieving genetics assholes can play funny games around my life while some freak show being trashes my life like a rocket scientist because its exceedingly stupid and still thinks i give a shit about its game and what will happen around when i turn 36. Its a shame nroth america has taken to the relentless abuse and artifical insimination games with tech to defile and ruin other beings lives to improve upon the visual aspects of the species. Cant have that though because theres big money in the world and a lot of surgeons and such would lose their money making abilities through fake tittys and dicks if some genetics/dna things were found that would give people big digs, pretty faces, nice tits etc. WHen you play connect the dots on earth you really see a north american pig planet that is hell bent around making money off hurting people and having a substantial supply of ugly people to create markets. Like if you can take an important person and put a tattoo upon them which theyd never do themselves then a bunch of the sheep tards might look and think hey so and so is cool lets get tattoos too. then bam a market boom is created. Or just having people pissed off hurting each other creates work for the hospitals and police. Aronists and such are good for north america as well. THis planet, i cant believe i never thought of it until all this started happening, is a god damned hell hole and hte most amazing thing happened to me, but sadly our american friends dont like certain things happening apparently and like the world as the disgusting hell hole it is.
