Apparently all HSBC debit cards arent working at the moment in cash machines or in shops
HSBC are aware but cant tell us when it will be fixed and can offer no advice as to how to get cash - its a case of wait until its fixed! not helpful at all. no idea if shops still have back ups for failure of chip and pin - they ought to have a back up system of some sort! What happens if you have already filled the car up with fuel and have no other means of payment???
