|Shanghaied by the bankers!|
Josephine Lewis is a widow and was held hostage in the bank after seeking help with crippling overdraft charges. Christopher Hicks locked her in an interview room with himself for half an hour despite her screams of ‘let me out’. Hicks, who is still in charge of the HSBC branch, blocked her exit until she filled out a form detailing her spending. She was only released when other staff heard her cries.
HSBC then harassed her with hundreds of ‘abusive and threatening’ phone calls. She received up to eight a day over an 18-month period. Now, after a three-year legal battle – which she paid for with her late mother’s life savings – she has finally received an apology.
Isn't it amazing? HSBC doesn't come out of this smelling of roses at all. More like a stinking Chinese herbal remedy, except here the dimwitted Mr. Hicks took on the wrong woman and has made the bank look cheap and cheesy. Mrs.Lewis was sort of shanghaied but then that isn't that strange for these bankers.
