Geez! After getting gas (that’s petrol to the rest of you), at a local station, I found out my credit card was declined.
It turns out the HSBC link went down to VISA (and only HSBC’s link), not only was I stranded at the petrol station with petrol I couldn’t pay for, but the bank was helpless to assist.
Turns out a glitch as shut down all of HSBC’s credit cards in Australia (lucky me I am not alone). I am sure more is to follow.
Pretty bad when you consider the same thing happened in the UK earlier this year.
What gives HSBC your customers deserve better.
