(Huffington Post) HSBC have been accused of quizzing customers withdrawing large sums on cash on what they want to spend it on – and demanding proof of what they will purchase.

Several customers told BBC Radio 4’s MoneyBox programme that when they attempted to withdraw certain sums, between £5,000 and £10,000, they have been asked to provide proof of why they need the money.

HSBC said it was a change in policy, implemented in November, which would now be reviewed.
