Litigation against HSBC Private Bank Singapore

Dear blog readers, I'd like to apologise for the lack of update. Since the news had made it to the media, I'll share the extracts with you.

This week I took the witness stand at the Singapore High Court, and I believe the justice will prevail. This litigation caused me lots of pain in the past 4 years, but I fought it all the way through. I'd like to let you know that no matter what life throws at you, don't ever give up. Fight for the good and this is what I intend to keep on doing, no matter how long it will take.

Thanks for all your support. Special thanks to my friends in Singapore.

HSBC Private Bank sued

A FAMILY of three from Taiwan is suing HSBC Private Bank for forcing them to close a foreign exchange trade on their US$24 million (S$37 million) investment account, which resulted in them suffering losses and being deprived of potential profits.

Mr Huang Po Jen, his mother Madam Chen Ling San, and his grandmother, Madam Chen Cheng Su Yun, are claiming about US$3 million in total.

The case opened in the High Court on Monday and is scheduled for 10 days.

I can't believe a bank would do this to their customers. Hang in there PJ and keep on fighting. I have been to Singapore and I believe in its people and its legal system will help you get the justice you deserve :D please keep us updated

Holy crap, PJ! You must be exhausted with this going on, and you are a strong, strong man to fight the fight - and I admire you for that.

I hope that justice prevails, banks shouldn't be able to just do as they please with their customers.

Biggest hugs to you, my friend.

I can't believe you still tell me wonderful things about Singapore and its people...
I would have hated them to pieces. It's like a Japanese TV drama. I can't believe It's actually happening to you.
I'm telling all my colleague at the travel agency.

Hey PJ, wishing you all the best in your challenge of HSBC.

That is just typical of a major corporation changing the terms of a deal unilaterally.

Like you said before, we are both FIGHTERS!
Thank you for your kind support in my own affairs & strong words of encouragement ;>
Sending positive energy & super-powered determination your way...
*special kittypuss hug for you*

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh..
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit!
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow..
Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far..
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit!!!

Hey PJ,

At last you'll have your day in court. It's been coming for a long long time now.
You hang in there my friend, stay strong and don't let them drag you down.

PJ, I can't believe this is happening to you. The big organisation should have the balls to take the responsibility, but they chose to wash their dirty linen in the public's eyes. Shame on tham and good luck to you, you will definitely win!

Hi, PJ.
I was shocked to know such things happened to you.
Behind your warm and heartful smile, you've fought for 4 years with a big power. You're strong!
I wish justice will prevail and
you can get the peace of mind.

You may probably be very interested to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no initial capital needed.
You may begin earning with a sum that usually goes
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one project for several years,
and I'll be glad to share my secrets at my blog.

Please visit blog and send me private message to get the info.
