This website discloses details of a massive consumer fraud by HSBC and the cover-ups by regulators, media and the government. It represents 16 years work. The Financial Conduct Authority announced in January 2017 that HSBC had “voluntarily” agreed to compensate 6,700 customers for illegal charges added to debts. Then in July 2019 they stated they had found a further 18,500. The true figure for people affected is 5-600,000 with compensation of at least £200m due to perhaps 250,000 customers. So far I have recovered £30,000,000.

If you believe you have been affected you are asked to contact HSBC at HSBC UK Bank Plc, Business Review Centre, Redcliff Quay, 120 Redcliff Street, Bristol, BS1 6HU or call 03455 857 564. I will not give up fighting for compensation for everyone affected. Please note that I will not be able to help individual claimants.



“Wilson is that most rare and precious of whistleblowers: the insider who did the right thing from the git-go, went through channels, and can’t be accused of having a personal stake either in avoiding prosecution or garnering a financial award. Which means, apparently, that he must be determinedly ignored and, when necessary, dismissed as a crank.” Peter Lee

“Nicholas Wilson’s revelations on HSBC fraud in Britain constitute the worst and largest single case of banking fraud to have ever emerged in this country.” Nafeez Ahmed Investigative journalist, recovering academic, tracking the Crisis of Civilisation

“I have dealt with a lot of whistleblowers in my time and Mr Wilson has about the greatest credibility and is the least motivated by personal grievance.” Ian Fraser, author of Shredded: Inside RBS, The Bank That Broke Britain
