Thousands of consumers who may have paid unreasonable debt collection charges have been contacted by HSBC, which has voluntarily agreed to extend a redress scheme, the City regulator has said.

HSBC confirmed that in May 2019 around 18,500 customers who had not previously been contacted were written to, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) said.

HSBC has agreed to stump up £4m to pay back customers subjected to " unreasonable " debt collection practices following a regulatory probe. The Financial Conduct Authority said on Friday that the bank has voluntarily agreed to set up a redress scheme for customers who were left out of pocket

HSBC has voluntarily agreed to pay out around £4m in redress to thousands of customers who were affected by an “ unreasonable ” debt collection Some 6,700 customer accounts which had fallen into arrears are said to have paid a 16.4% debt collection charge , which was charged by solicitors

The regulator said that between 2003 and 2009, customers of HFC and JLFS who fell into arrears were referred to solicitors.

On referral, HFC and JLFS levied a charge to the account representing 16.4% of the balance as a “debt collection charge”.

But the flat rate charge was identified as unreasonable by FCA predecessor body the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) in 2010, as it did not reflect the costs of collecting the debt.

HSBC told the FCA that HFC and JLFS stopped adding a debt collection charge in November 2009 and in 2010 reversed the charge from all live accounts.

In 2017, HSBC started a voluntary redress exercise to compensate customers where they had paid more than the actual and necessary cost of collecting their debt.
