HSBC In UK Says Embassies And Vatican, You Have 60 Days To Find A New Bank

Tuesday, August 6, 2013 - 11:44 AMHSBC - Details
This is really about HSBC in the UK. Many Embassies and the Vatican have been told they have 60 days to find another bank by HSBC. "other banks have been closing ranks and refusing to take their business. ... One diplomatic source said he believed HSBC feared being exposed to embassies after it (HSBC)was fined $2billion (£1.32billion) by US authorities last year."

Sounds like this could also happen to individuals everywhere.
