On 28th February 2013, HFC Bank Ltd sold some of its secured loan portfolio to Sancopia Portfolios No 1 SARL and transferred its remaining accounts to HSBC UK bank plc which is part of the same group as HFC Bank Ltd.

HFC Bank Ltd were already in trouble at that point having been fined over £1 million for mis-selling PPI and having been criticised for overcharging customers that were in arrears between 2003 and 2009. In 2010 they had reversed the charges after the Office of Fair Trading imposed a requirement for them to do so, but failed to refund people where the reversal of the charges had put their accounts into credit.

In 2015, an FCA Investigation concluded that several thousand customers had been overcharged and were therefore entitled to compensation. In addition to charging customers who were in arrears excess fees, they had also been charging some customers the wrong amount of interest.

HFC Bank Ltd was placed in liquidation on 13th January 2017.
