  • Subject: FW: Your HSBC application documents
  • On: April 17, 2018, 12:03 p.m.

HSBC

Good Morning,

Thank you for applying online. We sent you application documentation for signing. Please note the Relationship Authority form will have to be signed by all of the relevant signatories.

What we need you to do

1. The documents are delivered through secure email via an attached file from HSBC. Please be aware this may be delivered to the spam folder.

2. When you open the document a message will appear saying the document requires phone verification. When you click the Send Code button, a code will be sent to your mobile phone.

3. Key that code in to the Code box on screen and select OK. You will now be able to complete the fields in the document as required.

4. Please note that the signature you upload needs to be a clear, current version of your standard signature which once added to the bank mandate can be used to authorise such account transactions as the paying away of funds.

5. Please ensure when you complete the form, that full names including any middle names are included.

6. When the final signatory has completed and signed the documents they will then be returned to me via secure email.

Yours sincerely

Luke Gray

infect your computer with an virus.

I have purchased this domain after it being terminated by the hosting
