    HSBC, your opinions

    I went in there to open a standard account. These guys are just like sales people. Do they work on commission or something? They're pretty much giving me what any other bank gives me but I just need to put a bunch more money sitting in their vaults (whatever little I wanted to put in).

    They told me "the more money you put in, the more interest you can get." I told them "the more money I put in, the more money you will have in your pot to gain interest from". Isn't that how it works?

    Anyway, frrom what I can see, they're just a bunch of sales people and I didn't see anything special about them. Your thoughts ?

    We are having fits with them. They can't seem to get the simplest thing straightened out for us. Incompetents in my opinion.

    We cannot solve problems with the same level of consciousness that created them. A.E.

    I have had worse luck with Credit Unions. The one I used to belong constantly screwed up my accounts and I was always fighting with them over it. They were freaking clueless from top to bottom.
