anybody here have HSBC-Philippines account?

lately, there have been news about HSBC (i think in UK) being in trouble, being on the verge of collapse, etc..etc..

on 30 jan, i requested transfer of 12k usd from hsbc to another local bank.. the amount was debited from my hsbc the next day, 31 jan..  but until now, 1 week later, the recipient local bank has not received any funds.  i have inquired (email) with hsbc, but 2 days and still no reply.  the local bank tells me they never received such transfer.

anybody have troubles with HSBC lately??

i've transferred 50k usd before, very fast and no problem at all, from hsbc to bpi din.. now lang ako nagka-problem.  what's alarming is that i did not get any reply from hsbc on my inquiry email, nor did i get any notification if there was any problem with the transfer.  nothing at all.

as far as I remember, there is a cap of 5000 for US dollar transaction per day.

I think even in other banks. Not sure though.

For sure, your transaction is covered/subject to AMLA (Anti-Money Laundering Act) and they maybe verifying your transaction.

cap maybe for ATM withdrawals.. but i've withdrawn more than 5k usd over the counter before, i've done bank to bank transfer of 50k usd..

but even if they have to go through any verifications, hsbc could at least reply to my email, or inform me of such verifications that will cause delays.

Sir noobydooby's experience seems to confirm may issue talaga sa HSBC.

Yung ibang links jan don't work anymore, parang sinadyang pinatanggal.

Sir triple ingat na lang. Itabi yung ibang pera sa bahay para pag may emergency ay hindi mahirapan. In the past few years, may mga krisis sa ibang bansa kung saan pahirapan magwithdraw sa ATMs, ngayon naman pati sa loob ng bangko ganyan na rin pala. Sana HSBC lang.

It may or may not be affected. Ang alam ko they have tie-up banks where they keep their money. Check mo kung saan nila nilalagay ang pera nila (ninyo).

Have you tried smaller withdrawals this February (over-the-counter or online)? Keep us updated. Sana ma-update na yung local bank account mo.

Those articles came out late-January. It's possible you were able to withdraw before the issue surfaced. Pebrero na, who knows baka lumala na yung isyu at nag-spread na sa ibang HSBC branches.

i read the articles about hsbc mid january.  i made the transfers late january, after i read the articles.  fortunately, i was able to get the bulk of my funds out of hsbc, ksi na enganyo ako sa stocks, uitfs and mfs  :D  but still i have almost 20k usd in hsbc that i need to get out.
