Barclays have had a CIFAs marker lodged against my name. As society is getting cashless, is there any way I can open a basic account?

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

It sounds like you are having difficulty with a CIFAS marker and are trying to get a bank account.

Yes. You can open a Nationwide Basic Account:

That is a basic one. You should be able to get one there.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?

If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.
