Although its listed with the OCC http://www.helpwithmybank.gov/national_banks/bank_list_g-k.html#h it does not come up in a business search of Nevada corporations: http://sos.state.nv.us/sosentitysearch/CorpSearch.aspx so I was confused.
I live in California so I searched there too and did not find HSBC Bank Nevada BUT I did find HSBC Finance Corporation and I think this is who they are.
This is confirmed on HSBC’s own explanation at: http://www.hsbcusa.com/ourcompany by clicking on the third PDF under the heading “More about HSBC” – this is the one called HSBC Finance Corporation Fact Sheet.
If you read this it says that they do credit cards. My credit card statement lists BOTH HSBC Bank Nevada and HSBC Finance Corporation but as I say I can’t seem to track down the Nevada organization in either California or Nevada.
Others may find this info helpful – I think it helps to know who you’re angry with. They have a name, they have a registered address (locally and in Mettawa, Ill) so there is no need to despair…! Good luck everyone lets stick together.
