Q: CAN I CLAIM MY MONEY I SENT FROM REGIONS BANK IN JONESBORO, ARKANSAS TO HSBC BANK IN LONDON,ENGLAND IM A FRAUD VICTIM?
I WIRED 0VER 15,000 TO THE BANK AND THE LONDON POLICE INFORMED ME THAT I WAS A FRAUD VICTIM FROM THE BANK THERE.
A: If it helps to know it, you are only one of many thousands of Americans who have collectively lost billions of dollars to international fraud stings in the past few years. And I am sure the London police also told you there was nothing they could do about it; right? They were not lying.
At best you can report the theft to YOUR bank (Regions Bank) and demand to know whey they still do international banking business with HSBC--one of the big problem banks that is seen in the headlines more frequently than most.
