And to think i thought HSBC was a brilliant bank, I was wrong. I went in there earlier on today to cash a cheque and they turned around to me and told me I cannot cash it because it wasn't enough. So I take it you have to cash at least a million before they can accept it. Tossers. I have cashed many cheques before of a small pityful amount and they were fine. I think I might change a bank account.
