    What does HSBC have to say about this?

    there is nothing that HSBC can do or say to fix the damage other than sending its sincere apology to the 400 Premier custmers. this is the huge price of the modern technology. it is a human error that can happen any where in the world. thanks to Allah that they only disclosed their emails not the details of their Bank accounts. what the heck let the 400 befriends each other like the Facebook!
