The account holders reportedly created an illegal scheme with the help of three HSBC units to stash away their money in secret accounts. AFIP's allegations are based on a CD that the French government sent containing data about 4,040 undeclared Argentine bank accounts. HSBC issued an apology for past practices at its Swiss unit.
