Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Did they put anything in writing please?
Have you searched your credit file?
You should write and ask for an explanation. Write this as a formal complaint.
If they do not respond or you are not happy then you can complain to the Ombudsman
However you can only do that when you have the final response from the bank
Their website is: www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk
But write and ask for the reason, then go to the Ombudsman
That way you will know
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes but you need to make a formal complaint before you do anything else.
There are a number of banks that do basic accounts
Nationwide do a Cash Card Current Account
Barclays do a Cash Card account
Co Op - Cash Minder
Does this help?
If this answers your question could I invite you leave feedback on my service which I hope has been excellent today, if you need more information or help then please click reply.
Please remember that I am always happy to help if you have future questions, even if I am in Court I can normally respond within a few hours. For future information, please start them with ‘For Alex W’.
