HSBC Card Services - Fraudulent Practices? Account Fees on Seldom Used Account Listed as "Purchases" Carol Stream Illinois
They also charge the fees as "Purchases" so that they can charge interest on these fees. This is ILLEGAL. There is a specific banking industry regulation call Reg AA which specifically prohibits charging fees on top of fee charges plus interest. It is called pyramiding.
DO NOT USE THIS CARD. I had this card for a few years and used it rarely and always paid it off. They lower my limit without warning, charge me overlimit and late fees which should not have been charged and are charging me interest on that.
They've added hundreds of dollar to a bill which was very manageable until they did this.
DO NOT USE HSBC!!!
