Top Brass at HSBC

Hello,

 

Does anyone have a proper Backdoor number for Orchard Bank/HSBC AND.. and this is a big AND... the name of the US Chief and the corporate address?

 

Please send me a PM with the info, if it's too sensitive to publish publicly.

 

Thanks

Orchard: 800-395-6090 (May get answered in Spanish by bilingual CSR's.  If this happens and you don't speak Spanish, either try again later or try saying "Habla ingles?" or "Ingles, por favor" to let them know you're an English-speaker).

Re: Top Brass at HSBC

I just called HSBC and they told me that the CLI request would require a hard pull. How will this affect my credit rport? The reason I ask is I currently have a mortgage loan pending with a lender via FHA and I am right around the 620 mid-score requirement. I do not want to drop below the 620 threshold. How much will my score drop and how much could it potentially improve if I am approved for a CLI?

You should not be app'ing or asking for CLI's that require a hard inq during the six months leading up to the approval of a mortgage. You need to halt now or you proceed at your own peril! A small difference in the APR on a mortgage will end up costing you a fortune!

Re: Top Brass at HSBC

I told them I would call them back on the call as I didn't want to authorize a hard pull. I thought it might help my credit score if I could get my limit increased...but I guess I will hold off for now. I don't want to run the risk of not getting the loan I have been approved for. Haha.

Re: Top Brass at HSBC

New accounts and fresh inquiries lead to questions you really don't want to deal with the week of your closing. Surprise reconsideration of your financing gets very ugly.

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
