This bloke worked for the advisers in Dubai who we can't name, but sounds like 'tears'. He stitched up quite a few people here.

Some fascinating stuff there.............

I wonder what HSBC think of a branch manager who agreed to this without all the normal KYC prerequisites (a passport would surely have had full name, correct DOB, etc).

And I'm puzzled how a debt of GBP 208,000 rises "with interest" to GBP 481,000......

........ so it's also HSBC who are sharks.

There's sharks in more than one company in the UAE, including some of the supposedly "reputable" firms...the sort of firms who sell unlicensed products and services here...the sort of firms that employ people for months or years without visas and work permits...

Banks are a source of much evil in this world...most people are not even aware just how much banks embezzle and con them.

Yes but I'd love to see the full details of the debt.

Perhaps I'll sit down with Meow and we can work out the APR they charged......
