Sorry to hear that @SZclarson. In the end didn't I didn't go the HKMA , I had spent too much time on these crooks. In the end all my accounts were closed and I have no relationship with them. I never got an explanation from them, they point blank refused and that was after months of correspondence. My thoughts on them cannot be published here. I have told as many people as possible and thankfully many of them went on to close their business and personal accounts with them. Should you not get any meaningful response from them in the next two weeks then unfortunately my advice would be to walk away and save your time. A real hassle and extremely unjust but that's HSBC for you. I wish you good luck and sorry I can't be of help.
