Lord Hague, Nissan, HSBC and Tory corruption

Meet Lord Hague of Teneo since August 2016 on a salary of £250,000 per annum On August 4 2016 Teneo launched a “Brexit Client Transition Unit”. Teneos clients include Nissan and HSBC. Shortly after Hague’s appointment it was announced that the government had done a sweetheart deal with Nissan to encourage them to stay in […]

HSBC, Amber Rudd and Hinkley Point C

  In 2012 Anoine Cahuzac left HSBC and joined EDF (Électricité de France).   In March 2014 it was announced that HSBC were advising on the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station.   And the appointment of EDF to build the plant was formally announced in October 2015.   Amber Rudd was Secretary of State […]

HSBC launders donations to the Tories

Those familiar with this site will know that for years I have been stating that the Conservative Party have a deeply corrupt relationship with HSBC, as do most of the establishment. Over the years I have worked with financial reform campaigner Joel Benjamin. Joel has been very busy recently digging into the affairs of erstwhile […]

May’s massive conflict of interest. She must resign.

In July 2016 Theresa May became Britain’s Prime Minster, after David Cameron resigned. Her husband Philip May is Investment Relationship Manager for Capital Group, a US Investment management firm with assets of $1.39 trillion. Philip May is based in Britain so it is highly likely he will have been involved in negotiating business deals with […]

HSBC

Interview with Newsbud   _________________ This website discloses details of a massive consumer fraud by HSBC and the cover-ups by regulators, media and the government. It represents 13 years work. The Financial Conduct Authority announcement above is the culmination to date. The £4m figure is a joke and my campaign will continue.   _____________   […]

Latest SRA cover-up

  There is a new Solicitors Regulation Authority cover-up of HSBC fraud. It is really quite extraordinary. The findings of their new “investigation” contradict their previously findings and cover-up, that the charges were unlawful contingency fees, and seem to be based entirely on the answers to a questionnaire sent to the solicitors. They don’t appear […]

More HSBC dirty tricks?

In April 2014 the Financial Conduct Authority took over from the now defunct Office of Fair Trading in the regulation of Consumer Credit matters. Unlike the OFT it also acquired new powers to order redress for wrongdoing. However, in late 2013 HSBC surrendered HFC’s credit licence, so they are no longer authorised, and therefore regulated, […]

HSBC censorship at BBC

This appeared in the Guardian yesterday. Today John McDonnell asked an urgent question in parliament about the matter. I checked the BBC website for references to “HSBC money laundering” – the results below show virtually nothing since 2014. The references to February 2015 are related to a Panorama programme which had been in preparation for […]

My gift to the FCA and HSBC

In their press release of 20 January, below, the FCA announced that HSBC had “voluntarily” agreed to pay redress of “approximately” £4m to “approximately” 6,700 people. I have evidence which shows that the true figure should be £80-100m. I believe I know how the figure of £4m was arrived at. At the end of last […]

Why doesn’t the DWP leave me alone?

Having recently had to attend a “compliance interview” at my local Job Centre because someone had reported me for benefit fraud, in which I demonstrated that  I had not committed fraud,  and having fought off repossession proceedings by the government owned  UK Asset Resolution, today I received a letter from the DWP, claiming I had […]

The World v HSBC

In the last year, 1 January 2016 to 3 Juanuary 2017 the following countries have visited my website and read about a massive HSBC fraud on British consumers. During that time the British regulator, the Financial Conduct Authoritry has done nothing despite promising me and the Complaints Commissioner that they would reopen their investigation. The […]

Restons threats

  As previously blogged, I had been told by a debtor that Restons threatened to add interest to a judgment debt if the debtor challenged the “collection charge”. I have now found hard evidence of this in an online consumer forum dating from December 2009. Restons are not entitled to add interest to a judgment […]

Is this really how things should be?

I have today sent this email (together with a ps, below) to Andrew Bailey, CEO of the Financial Conduct Authority, Richard Armstrong of the Solicitors Regulation Authority, Anthony Townsend, the Complaints Commissioner and MPs George Kerevan and Andrew Tyrie, of the Treasury Select Committee. Dear Sirs I attach and copy of a letter received from […]

Quantum mechanics and HSBC fraud

Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle (1927), states that the more precisely the position of some particle is determined, the less precisely its momentum can be known, and vice versa. As I understand it, it means the mere act of observing changes a particle’s state. There is a very similar situation I have encountered in investigating the huge […]

Amber Rudd’s Ghost Train

On January 30 2015, during the “long campaign” for election in the General Election, meaning  expenses must be declared, Amber Rudd arranged for a high speed Javelin Train to visit Hastings. On the seats of the train were her election brochures. Ms Rudd did not declare any expenses for this. Javelin trains usually run between […]

Letter to David Green of the SFO

I have today sent this email to David Green, the director the Serious Fraud Office, in response to his letter to Home Secretary Amber Rudd, which appears below the email: Dear Mr Green, I have read the letter you have sent to Home Secretary Amber Rudd concerning my report to you of corruption at the […]

New letter to Treasury Select Committee

The Treasury Select Committee are meeting Andrew Bailey of the FCA next month. I have therefore sent them this email: Dear Sirs I understand that you are meeting with Andrew Bailey of the FCA next month. I hope you will take this opportunity to question him about progress in the investigation against HSBC/John Lewis Financial […]

A letter for the FCA to send to HSBC

After 4 years, the FCA still seem to be incapable of investigating the massive fraud by HSBC which involved the bank adding illegal charges to debts of defaulting customers in order to pay their legal costs of recovery. It was an unlawful contingency fee, if the solicitors didn’t recover the illegal charge they didn’t get […]

Recording of my meeting with the FCA

It is now 9 months since the FCA apologised to me and agreed to re-open their investigation into HSBC/John Lewis Financial Services fraud: There has been no obvious progress in the investigation apart from the FCA appointing as non-executive directors personnel from HSBC and John Lewis. I am back in touch with the Complaints Commissioner […]

When will BBC censorship of HSBC end?

Yesterday it was announced that Rona Fairhead is “stepping down” as Chair of the BBC Trust. Theresa May has stated that the new role must be opened up to fair competition and Fairhead clearly doesn’t recognise such a concept and will not be applying. I have written extensively about Fairhead’s original corrupt appointment by Cameron, […]

Finding HSBC illegal charges

In my experience of dealing with HSBC/HFC, locating the illegal collection charges on accounts is similar to locating the 12 black points on the intersections on the diagram below. Due to the sleight of hand of HSBC and their solicitors you think you’ve located one and they disappear, or appear in places you don’t expect […]

The Magic Roundabout

In this post I will deal with the lesser players who have directly benefitted from minimising HSBC losses due to their imposition of illegal charges on defaulting accounts. Natalie Ceeney I helped a few consumers recover the illegal charges from HSBC through the Financial Ombudsman Service. In cases where the debt had been paid off […]

New complaint against the FCA

I have today made a new complaint to the Complaints Commissioner about the disgraceful behaviour of the FCA and what I perceive to be a new cover-up in progress. I have also copied in Andrew Tyrie and George Kerevan of the Treasury Select Committee, who have previously dealt with the issues. Dear Mr Townsend Regrettably […]

Corruption by omission. The British way

  Update 19 August 2016 – Private Eye have had a stab at this story: Today it has been widely reported that the Sunday Times has published, in an “unprecedented leak”, the  list of David Cameron’s resignation honours. What is very significant about the Sunday Times article is what it does not say. Camilla Cavendish […]

All is not well at the FCA

Mick McAteer sat on the board of the Financial Conduct Authority as a non-executive director throughout the period of their cover-up of the HSBC fraud. He left the FCA in December 2015. On 3 December 2015 the Complaints Commissioner published his findings on my complaint against the FCA for the cover-up, which was very scathing […]

#HSBCfraud is closing in.

In the last 3 weeks there have been significant news stories directly related to my campaign to expose massive HSBC consumer fraud and the corruption of regulators and politicians surrounding it. Firstly, on 7 July, SNP MP John Nicolson, in the Media. Sport and Culture Select Committee, questioned Rona Fairhead as to the circumstances surrounding […]

How Cameron controls the BBC

The White Paper on the BBC states that the trust governing the BBC is being abolished and a board will be set up to run day-to-day matters, while Ofcom will become the corporation’s external regulator. The Chair of the present Trust is ex HSBC director Rona Fairhead. Cameron has promised her that she will be […]

Who prosecutes bank fraud in the UK? Nobody

Having recently discovered that HSBC are produced forged statements to try to “prove” that they have not added illegal charges to debts, I have redoubled my efforts for the authorities to take appropriate action, as it would appear that HSBC are also producing such statements to the Financial Conduct Authority and the Solicitors Regulation Authority. […]

The Fraud Act 2006 and HSBC

I have been urging City of London Police to investigate the fraud by HSBC. Not only has the bank defrauded consumers on a massive scale by adding illegal charges to debts, I now believe that they are deceiving regulators FCA and SRA by producing bogus statements, which allege to show that no charges were added. […]

Fantastically corrupt Cameron

Today David Cameron referred to Nigeria and Afghanistan as “fantastically corrupt” nations. I presume coming from him it was meant as a compliment. This is Cameron’s fantastically corrupt behaviour over the industrial scale consumer debt fraud by HSBC detailed on these pages and being investigated by the Financial Conduct Authority. In 2010, when he made […]

FCA completely disinterested in HSBC fraud

SNP MP George Kerevan of the Treasury Select Committee questioned the Financial Conduct Authority further, following his previous questions, about the HSBC fraud: And here, the Chairman of the FCA, John Griffith-Jones says that  “unfortunately”  the Complaints Commissioner found against the FCA. So unfortunate in fact that the first thing the FCA did after the […]

Questions about Cameron for sale on eBay

Recently, following the Panama papers revelations I offered David Cameron for sale on ebay:The posting was quickly taken down by eBay but the stunt did go viral, being reported by RT, The Mirror, The Canary, AOL News, Daily Star and many other outlets. Although a bit of fun, my stunt did have a serious purpose […]

How MPs are conning the public over HSBC tax evasion

An RT News interview revealing details in this blog There have been a number of parliamentary select committees that have severely criticised HMRC for failure to prosecute any tax evaders following the release of the Herve Falciani list from HSBC Swiss accounts. And recently the Office for Budget Responsibility stated: These hearings are a fraudulent […]

Evidence presented to the FCA

Evidence presented to the FCA at a meeting on 13 April 2013   As a preliminary point NW will say that it should be simple matter for the FCA to verify the facts stated here by asking HSBC for copies of all invoices from Weightmans and Restons solicitors for debt recovery up to 2010 which […]

Censorship on talkRADIO

On 8 April via a direct message on Twitter I was invited to speak on talkRADIO about the Cameron tax affair. As can been seen from the exchange I was quite clear about what I could and would talk about: This is what happened when I got connected This was Jonny Gould’s response on Twitter:

Open letter to Sajid Javid

This is the text of a letter I have sent by email to ex Culture Secretary (now Business Secretary) Sajid Javid. I don’t expect he will reply but I intend to publicise the letter. The automated reply from his parliamentary email address stated this, so the mail has been forwarded, even though it does not […]

The state of the UK under Cameron

This is footage of Business Secretary Sajid Javid, (who, when he as Culture Secretary unlawfully appointed a banker, Rona Fairhead, of HSBC, to head the BBC) stating that he knew about Deutsche Bank’s tax avoiding bonus payments system but didn’t benefit from it. He was paid £3m a year. When posting the complete interview between […]

HSBC and the security services

The infiltration by HSBC of some of the most sensitive public positions, at the behest of David Cameron knows no limits. Since September 2015 Lord Janvrin Deputy Chairman of HSBC Private Bank (UK) Ltd, has sat on the secret Intelligence and Security Committee. This is the role of the Committee: Besides this, Lord Evans (who […]

Cameron appoints HSBC to top British roles

This article appeared in Reuters today: In the UK David Cameron has personally appointed an HSBC director, Rona Fairhead to head the BBC, and an HSBC Vice Chairman, Lord Janvrin to the Intelligence and Security Committee, which oversees the work and budget of the security services.

How Cameron batted for HSBC in Brussels

Cameron achieved very little in his tortuous negotiations in Brussels to change the terms of Britain’s membership of the EU. One thing he did achieve though was protection for the City of London and particularly HSBC. As I have pointed out, Cameron is deeply beholden to HSBC, not least because of his cover-up of the […]

Breach of BBC independence

Rona Fairhead is Chair of the BBC Trust responsible for ensuring their independence. This blog shows that she herself has breached that independence. This is no real surprise as she was head of the risk committee at HSBC US at the time the bank was caught laundering money for Mexican drug cartels and terrorists. I […]

HSBC infiltrates defence & justice

Jonathan Evans, Lord Evans of Weardale, ex-head of MI5 is a director of HSBC. He is also a director of Ark Data Centres, a company that supplies data services to the Cabinet Office, the Ministry of Justice the Ministry of Defence and cloud computing for BT. A previous director was Baroness E L Manningham-Buller, the […]

Lord Janvrin, HSBC and MI5

Update  6 April 2016 – since writing this blog it appears that Lord Janvrin, a month later, gave up his position at HSBC – I have for some time believed that MI5 have been involved in the gagging of the media over the £1bn HSBC fraud. Current HSBC Director Jonathan Evans is ex-head of MI5 […]

Osborne and HSBC

  Update – 20 August 2016 It has now been revealed in a US House of Representatives report that not only did George Osborne write to the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke (as widely reported) to lobby him against prosecuting HSBC in the US, he actually had a meeting with him for that […]

Ever more FCA scandal

The Financial Conduct Authority is supposed to be investigating HSBC and John Lewis Financial Services Limited for fraud. They have recently announced the appointment of Baroness Sarah Hogg, who happens to be a John Lewis director and Chair of their Audit Committee: Also newly appointed is Ruth Kelly, most recently Global Head of Client Strategy […]

Extraordinary FCA appointments

Following my complaint the Complaints Commissioner about FCA failure to act on my report of HSBC fraud the FCA have agreed to reopen their investigation. I had also made a complaint about John Lewis Financial Services Limited (a subsidiary of HSBC). So in theory the FCA are investigating HSBC and John Lewis Financial Services. Apart […]

Fairhead discusses HSBC on Marr

Today on the Marr Show Rona Fairhead, HSBC director and Chair of the BBC Trust was asked about any conflict in her doing both roles. What she said was very revealing. For an example of how close the connection between BBC and HSBC is, see here, for evidence that BBC forward a request to interview […]

The BBC is run by HSBC

A supporter of mine  @eriksandberg82 wrote this to Rona Fairhead, HSBC director and Chair of the BBC Trustees on 11 January 2016: To: rona.fairhead@bbc.co.uk Subject: Ms Fairhead – Interview Request & unlawful appointment Hi there, I’m emailing about a story that is due to break in the coming weeks about Ms Fairhead’s appointment to the […]

The FCA misled parliament today

Today there was a Treasury Select Committee hearing with the Financial Conduct Authority to question them on their decision to drop an investigation into banking culture. SNP MP George Kerevan also questioned Tracey McDermott, acting CEO, on how they can claim to have improved their regulation of individual banks when they had failed to act […]

Is Sebastian Coe a woman?

Contrary to my previous blog, Smoking Gun I now believe that the decision to appoint Rona Fairhead of HSBC to the BBC Trust chair was made in May 2014. This article appeared in the Sunday Times on 11 May 2014: This announcement provoked a lot of comment in the media: However, following the Sunday Times […]

Is BBC avoiding tax?

I have known for some time that the BBC has a shell company, BBC Worldwide Holdings BV registered  in the Netherlands with tax avoidance specialists Intertrust. This is from the Wikipedia entry on Intertrust: And this is from the Bloomberg entry on BBC Worldwide Holdings BV – it is a letterbox company: Since tax on […]

Email to Chair of Treasury Select Committee

I have today sent this email to Andrew Tyrie, the Chair of the Treasury Select Committee. I want some answers on the disgraceful behaviour of the Financial Conduct Authority. Dear Mr Tyrie I understand you will be meeting with the FCA shortly. You will be aware of who I am and my campaign. Recently the […]

More BBC censorship

Today it was announced that the HMRC Chief Lin Homer is resigning. It has been widely reported that this is partly because of criticism over HMRC handling of the HSBC Swiss tax affair. This is from the Guardian: However, true to form, the BBC doesn’t even mention HSBC:

Companies infected by HFC/HSBC fraud

As promised in an interview last night, here is a list of companies that HFC/HSBC operated credit facilities for. If you had defaulted on a debt to any of these companies prior to 2010 and the debt was sent to either Weightmans or Restons solicitors, the chances are that illegal charges were added to the […]

The FCA apology

As recommended by the Complaints Commissioner,  the Financial Conduct Authority have now sent me an apology. This is for their failure over 3 years to take any action on my report of £1bn fraud by HSBC and their collusion with the bank to cover-up the fraud. Usually when a complaint is upheld an ex gratia […]

More BBC censorship of HSBC

I have been monitoring BBC coverage of HSBC stories during 2015, because the head of the BBC, Rona Fairhead is an HSBC director.  I have blogged previously about blatant lies on negative news stories. Here are the results of 2 Google searches, one on HSBC fines, and one on the recent decision of the FCA […]

HSBC litany of lies

In order to avoid liability for £1bn fraud HSBC has told a number of lies, to the media, parliament and regulator. The map below gives examples of some, but is not exhaustive; click on the logos for more information.

Preliminary Decision on FCA complaint

I have decided to publish the Maxwellisation process with the Complaints Commissioner dealing with my complaint against the Financial Conduct Authority. Maxwellisation is where the subject of an inquiry is  given prior notice of any criticism in order for them to comment. I was invited to comment on the Complaints Commissioner’s Preliminary Decision on my […]

Good News

Finally I have some good news to report. The Complaints Commissioner has now given his final decision on my complaint against the Financial Conduct Authority for the way they handled my HSBC fraud report. The FCA have agree to re-open the case and the Commissioner has recommended a full apology to me.  I am very […]

Response from CMS Committee

I have now received a response from Jesse Norman MP, Chair of the Media, Culture and Sport Select Committee, explaining why they will not be taking any action on my report of the corrupt appointment of Rona Fairhead to the Chair of the BBC Trust. Judging by this response it appears that he hasn’t even […]

Chasing up CMS Select Committee

Following my email of 27 October to every member of the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee I have received not one response from any of them. I have therefore sent this email today: Dear Committee On 27 October I sent you all an email about the appointment of Rona Fairhead to Chair of the […]

DWP update

I attended my Jobcentre today hoping to speak to the manager and deliver a letter. Of course, the manager was not available. So I handed in a letter and obtained a receipted copy. I gave my phone number and await to see if I receive a call. This is letter I handed in:  Yesterday I […]

My DWP Compliance Interview

Today I attended my local Jobcentre for a compliance interview, at 12.30. When I arrived they had no record of the appointment, but after a while I was escorted to the interview room to wait outside. On being called in I said to the interviewer that I wished to record the interview. She refused. I […]

Jail bankers immediately

I have a, not altogether facetious, proposal to change the law when it comes to banker fraud. In my case many people have said “you can’t use the word fraud, they haven’t been convicted”. I don’t see why can’t use a perfectly proper term for a classic case of fraud. The HSBC fraud complies with […]

Revolving doors, part 342

I have just discovered that the person at the Office of Fair Trading who investigated HFC(HSBC) for illegal charges, leading to this order, is now employed by HSBC. The Complaints Commissioner discovered in his investigation of the FCA’s actions that the OFT investigation apparently revealed only 4 consumers had been affected. I estimate 600,000 were […]

More HSBC evasion to Parliament

Following the Lords Economic Affairs Committee hearing with ex HSBC Chair Stephen Green, the Chairman of the committee Lord Hollick wrote to the current chair of HSBC, Douglas Flint raising my concerns about debt recovery charges. I had written to Lord Hollick prior to the hearing. This is a extract from his letter: Whilst this […]

BBC, Bilderberg and HSBC: Secrets and lies

As I have written previously, HSBC director Rona Fairhead, who was corruptly appointed to  BBC Trust Chair, attended the highly secretive meeting of the great and good, the Bilderberg Conference this year. She was listed by Bilderberg as “Chairman, BBC Trust”.Campaigner for financial reform Joel Benjamin made a Freedom of Information request to the BBC […]

How HSBC owns the UK

Besides having two HSBC Lords and an HSBC director heading the BBC, this is how HSBC manipulates the media and government. Sir Simon Robertson is Deputy Chairman of HSBC and a member of the Conservative Party foundation “Our Mission: to strengthen the financial future of the Conservative Party”. Robertson has made the following donations to […]

Email to Lord Hollick about Lord Green

Next week on 14 July,, Lord Hollick, Chairman of the Economic Affairs Committee will be questioning Lord Green, ex Chair of HSBC about his involvement in the Mexican drug money laundering and the Swiss tax evasion scandals. I have written to Lord Hollick asking him to also question Green about the illegal charges which I […]

BBC censorship of HSBC

BBC censorship of HSBC is now getting ridiculous. I have just spoken to the news desk at the Sun newspaper who have confirmed to me that they never had an earlier front page story on today’s paper other than that below.  I had already seen this on Twitter before I heard the BBC Radio 4 […]

Is HSBC subsidising the BBC?

A colleague made a Freedom of Information request to the BBC asking in what capacity was HSBC Director, and Chair of BBC Trust Rona Fairhead, attending the Bilderberg Conference this year. She is listed in the official attendee list like this:The BBC replied today that Fairhead was attending in a personal capacity and that she […]

FCA tells parliament they don’t investigate bank fraud

At the Treasury Select Committee hearing in February when MP Jesse Norman questioned the Financial Conduct Authority about their collusion with HSBC to cover up massive fraud, there was some confusion as to what the FCA’s powers were in investigating and prosecuting fraud: At the end of the hearing the Chief Executive Martin Wheatley stated […]

Please email your MP.

Please email your MP as soon as possible to ask him or her to take action by raising questions in parliament and lobbying their party leaders to push for a public inquiry into the corrupt appointment of a HSBC director to head the BBC, in order to gag their reporting about HSBC wrongdoing. To date […]

BBC and HSBC propaganda

Today HSBC announced 25,000 job losses worldwide, with 8,000 in the UK. The BBC Radio 4 Today programme covered this with an effective eulogy for HSBC. No mention of the effect of the job losses or concern for staff. Last week the bank paid £28m in Switzerland in lieu of prosecution for money laundering – […]

BBC Silence

Update 27 October 2015. On 22 October this was reported in the press: It was not reported anywhere by the BBC.   On 4 June it was widely reported that HSBC had paid a £28m fine in Switzerland to avoid prosecution for money laundering. Given that the Chair of the Trustees of the BBC is […]

MI5 and HSBC

In light of my post Smoking Gun some have suggested that my claims of MI5 involvement in protecting HSBC are exaggerated or paranoid. This appeared recently from Corporate Crime Reporter: This article appeared in Private Eye in October 2013, at the same time that they also investigated but spiked my fraud disclosures. The head of […]

How I voted today

This is how I voted today in the UK general election. It is the only honest ballot paper, because however you vote, HSBC maintain power over of all MPs. I believe in democracy, not plutocracy (government by the wealthy).  It is an offence to take a photograph of a ballot paper.  

Another HSBC AGM, another pack of lies

The ever supportive Joel Benjamin (@Gian_Tcatt) attended the HSBC AGM today in London. Once again he asked Chairman Douglas Flint about the bank’s provisions for the fraud revealed on these pages. Once again the bank’s dismissive response was “we don’t agree with Mr Wilson”. Do they also disagree with the Office of Fair Trading and […]

What is the point of the FCA?

A big support of mine Ben Tomeo , has made a formal complaint on my behalf to the Complaints Commissioner about the Financial Conduct Authority’s failure to take action on massive HSBC fraud and their collusion with the bank to cover it up. In the course of his complaint he has been trying to ascertain […]

Dear BBC – My cat died

A supporter, Ian Allardyce,  recently wrote to the BBC complaining that he hadn’t seen anything on the news about the fact that his cat Tiddles had died. He received this response: “Whilst we appreciate your feedback, we know that not everyone will agree with our choices on which stories to cover, and the prominence that […]

Fraud authorities fail to act

This is how the authorities responsible for investigating fraud reacted to my report of massive fraud by HSBC. The National Fraud Authority wrote to my MP saying that I should go to Action Fraud, which will pass intelligence on to City of London Police: Action Fraud denied ever having received my report: “Dear Sir, I […]

Proper Journalism

I am very grateful to Dr Nafeez Ahmed, an investigative journalist, bestselling author and international security scholar, for writing the best article on my story to appear yet. It is comprehensive, accurate and shocking –  to me, even though I have lived through the story myself. I won’t reproduce it here, I want you to […]

HSBC lies yet again

Unbelievably in the midst of all the scandals swirling round HSBC at the moment they have just lied again. A very well know journalist contacted the press office today and asked whether the contingent liability of $1bn reported in their accounts for “technical requirments of the Consumer Credit Act” (i.e. fraud) relate to my allegations. […]

Serious questions for FCA

It has been pointed out to me, and I’m grateful to Paul Cotterill (@Bickerrecord on twitter) for drawing my attention to it, that during the period that I was in dispute with the Financial Conduct Authority because of their woeful inaction on my reports of massive fraud by HSBC and their subsequent collusion with the […]

The FCA tells me to get stuffed

Having completely embarrassed the Financial Conduct Authority for their collusion with HSBC to cover-up the fraud,  they have now told me to get stuffed. That’s the second regulator to have done that, the SRA did too. Here’s the email I’ve just received. Dear Mr Wilson As stated in my decision letter of 12 December 2014, […]

Prayers from Lambeth Palace

As part of my campaign to raise awareness of massive HSBC fraud I contacted Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, because he sat on the Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards. This is the response I received; I did reply that this was not an “individual case” but involves 5-600,000 victims.  I never heard from him again. […]

The FCA blames me

It has taken me some time to come to terms with this extraordinary letter received from the Financial Conduct Authority in which they admit that they colluded with HSBC by copying and pasting text received from HSBC (see Ian Fraser‘s blog) but deny that they colluded with HSBC! The letter was written to Ben Tomeo, […]

Who does regulate lawyers?

More regulatory nonsense here. A supporter of mine, Arthur Shuter had written to the Solicitors Regulation Authority complaining about Paul Kavanagh, an HSBC in-house solicitor who worked under the name DG Solicitors, a bogus firm that claimed on their letterhead that they were regulated by the SRA  (arguably a criminal offence). Furthermore, HSBC wrote to […]

Captured Guardian

This picture neatly sums of the Guardian’s relationship to HSBC: Update 15 February – it has just been stated by HSBC in the Treasury Select Committee meeting today that the Guardian is the biggest recipient of digital advertising revenue from HSBC. I have been saying for some time that the reason the Guardian don’t report […]

Don’t blow the whistle.

After a 12 year struggle trying to expose massive fraud by HSBC, having lost my job; nearly lost my home and facing new repossession proceedings; having damaged my mental and physical health to the extent that I am probably no longer capable of working; and having met and talked to many whistleblowers in similar situations, […]

Excellent blog by Ian Fraser

Esteemed financial journalist Ian Fraser, author of Shredded: Inside RBS, the Bank That Broke Britain has written an excellent blog about the FCA collusion with HSBC to cover up the fraud. It was written at this time because on Tuesday 27 January the Treasury Select Committee are grilling John Griffith-Jones and Martin Wheatley, chairman and […]

HSBC continue to lie about SRA regulation

Having lied to parliament about their fake solicitors being regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, as detailed here, HSBC continue to repeat the lie as in this letter from a correspondent, dated 11 December 2014 (click to enlarge): For the avoidance of doubt, this is what the SRA wrote in an email:  

Weightmans – Law firm of the year

In 2012 Weightmans was adjudged National/Regional Law Firm of the Year. It was Weightmans that sacked me for reporting them to the Law Society for fraud and it was Weightmans that used to refer to me as Mr Ethical. Now Weightmans have been exposed in the Guardian for illegally obtaining personal credit information. Article here […]

Revolving Doors part 2

This is quite extraordinary. I made my complaint against my employers Weightmans for illegal practice on behalf of HSBC to the Law Society (president Fiona Woolf) in 2006. It was referred to the newly created Solicitors Regulation Authority (chief executive Anthony Townsend). The SRA although upholding my complaint covered up the fraud. In June this […]

HSBC litany of lies

I thought it would be useful to catalogue the litany of lies that HSBC has produced to try to avoid liability for their fraud since I went public with my information. This disregards all the lies and fraud that preceded my public campaign. It culminates in their lying to the Treasury Select Committee. To Radio5 […]

HSBC lies to Parliament.

There is now a rt.com/uk article about this blog here. The issue of fake solicitors has been in the news recently and as a result the Treasury Select Committee on Banking wrote to various banks asking for clarification of their practices. In their reply to the TSC HSBC stated (click on images to enlarge): The letter […]

Why Simon Danczuk won’t help me

Simon Danczuk MP has done good work in fighting for a public inquiry into historical child sex abuse in the establishment. He has also made very public his objection to Fiona Woolf heading the inquiry because of her connections with Leon Brittan, Home Secretary at the time important records went missing and himself implicated in […]

first response from Fiona Woolf

I apologise that I am unlikely to be able to respond to emails promptly. If you have any diary queries, please contact Lucy Crowe at the Mansion House on Lucy.Crowe@cityoflondon.gov.uk. My PA at CMS is Alison Cooper on alison.cooper@cms-cmck.com. My reply: I have copied below an email I have sent to Fiona Woolf. I look […]

email to Fiona Woolf

I have today sent this email to Fiona Woolf, which will be self-explanatory. Dear Madam As part of  your project to convince the public of your suitability to chair the CSA Inquiry could you please explain to me your role, whilst President of the Law Society and representative of the City of London, in this […]

Woolf must go

Fiona Woolf has been appointed to chair the inquiry into the child sex abuse scandal engulfing the British establishment. She claims not to be of the establishment, but she is Lord Mayor of London, so I’m not sure who she thinks the establishment is. However, far more serious is that Woolf has already presided over […]

HSBC (USA) Sexual Harassment case goes to court

As previously reported HSBC in NY are facing allegations of retaliation against two employees for reporting sexual harassment against their colleague “Jane Doe”. The matter has now received a preliminary hearing as reported here by Law360. HSBC (USA) Securities Inc. is facing a pair of lawsuits in New York federal court alleging it retaliated against […]

Corruption in Parliament.

This is how Cameron buried bad news about HSBC and the £1bn fraud, in order to get criminal banker Stephen Green into parliament. Look at the dates on these documents. Stephen Green is made a Lord by Cameron The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) signs an order against HFC(HSBC) telling them to stop adding illegal […]

Welcome to the plutocracy

I went through the FTSE100 list of top UK companies to see how many bankers or ex-bankers sat on the board of directors of each company. The result was alarming. There was one company (Meggitt an engineering company, but their information was very thin, so I might be wrong) where I could find no connection, […]

Establishment taking the mickey

Remember this?  Proof of collusion between HSBC and FCA I had discovered that the FCA and HSBC were working together to work out what to say to me and the public about the fraud and together they came up with a whopping lie. Well, I found out today that the in-house legal team at the […]

HSBC’s Damascene Conversion

Has HSBC seen the light? I wrote this article, at their request,  for a well know forum that exposes bank rip-offs but who ran a mile when they realised it was about their paymasters HSBC. So, feel free to use the article wherever. All the details are evidenced with links. HSBC’s Damascene Conversion? by Mr […]

Compare these 2 documents

This is the OFT order imposed against HFC (HSBC) in 2010 from which it can be seen  that the OFT ordered the bank to stop adding collection charges until they changed their terms and conditions. And this statement I received from the FCA in April, stating that HFC agreements entitled them to add collection charges. […]

Evidence of SRA complete failure

I had always known that my ex employer Weightmans solicitors had carried on adding the illegal “collection charges” after the Solicitors Regulation Authority had ruled against them, following my complaint to them and my losing my job because of it. I knew this because I came across a claim form issued by Weightmans after the […]

establishment cover up

I thought I would just highlight one of  the establishment cover-ups of HSBC fraud. An OFT order was made against HFC (HSBC) but covered up because it coincided with Cameron making the bank’s chair a Lord. The order is dated 17 November 2010. Stephen Green, Chair of HSBC holdings was created a life peer on […]

Reply to HSBC

As usual Douglas Flint referred my email to a lackey at dodgy lawyers DG Solicitors who replied with his usual “the bank has nothing to add” – so, I have sent him this email today: Dear Mr Kavanagh You may wish to reconsider your position in a few weeks’ time. You cannot avoid your liabilities […]

RT.com article

Following Douglas Flint of HSBC’s extraordinary statement that whistleblowers should be celebrated and rewarded I was approached by RT.com for my comments. Here they are.

Will HSBC pay me compensation?

It has been reported in the news today that Douglas Flint of HSBC says that he believes whistleblowers should be celebrated and rewarded. I have therefore sent him this email. Dear Mr Flint I’m very pleased to hear that you are publicly supporting whistleblowers by saying they should be celebrated and rewarded. As you know […]

Ridiculous response from HSBC

I have received the most ridiculous response from HSBC in reply to my email of 29 August to HSBC solicitor Paul Kavanagh. I was basically asking him why their email to Joel Benjamin of 30 June,  was in exactly the same terms as an email I received from the FCA. Instead of answering my question, […]

Crime pays in Cameron’s UK plc

I have had to wait a couple of days before writing about the BBC appointment of Rona Fairhead as the new Chair of the Board of Trustees because I have been reeling from shock. Rona Fairhead is Chair of  HSBC North America Holdings Inc. According to Andrew Trotman in the Telegraph, at the time HSBC […]

Lawyer to BBC about HSBC fraud

This is what a prominent lawyer wrote to a prominent journalist at the BBC about the HSBC fraud, in April this year, to support the veracity of my story. Still, nothing has happened except that I have discovered the FCA and HSBC have colluded and lied to the public. What does a man have to […]

email to HSBC solicitor

Today I have sent this email to HSBC solicitor Paul Kavanagh (who’s name on appears on their “fake” solicitor letters from DG Solicitors). I will post any reply received. Dear Mr Kavanagh In view of your email below, I shall be grateful if you would please read this – http://nicholaswilson.com/proof-of-collusion-bewteen-hsbc-and-fca/ and then explain to me […]

Public Interest Psychology

I have received invaluable support from David Morgan of Public Interest Psychology. He has developed a special interest in the psychology of whistleblowing and has met and counselled many high profile whistleblowers, and written papers and given talks on the subject. Recently he has assisted me with a Mandatory Reconsideration for Employment Support Allowance and […]

Why did HSBC close Gaza charity account?

It seems very strange that HSBC has written to a British charity, Ummah Welfare Trust, (dedicated to relieving suffering in Gaza, and elsewhere) informing it that it intends to close its accounts as the charity now falls outside the banks’ “risk appetite”. HSBC is the only foreign bank operating in Israel that provides private banking […]

Three statements

Statement 1 – Office of Fair Trading November 2010 Statement 2 – Financial Conduct Authority April 2014 HFC’s agreements with customers gave it the right to do this and the fee was added after the customer had defaulted on the loan/credit card payments Statement 3 – HSBC – June 2014 HFC’s agreements with customers gave […]
