    My bank made me feel like a criminal .

    Moneywise helps a reader made to feel like a criminal by their bank.

    If you’ve never read Franz Kafka’s The Trial, I reckon you should. It tells the tale of K, a man accused of a crime but not told what the crime is.

    There are similarities with reader VB of Cardiff, who felt he was treated like a criminal by his bank.

    It suspended his account, but it wouldn’t tell him why and left him locked out of his account with bills due.

    Scam victims can’t always expect bank help.

    VB was in a bit of a panic when he contacted us. “I have been using my TSB account as normal until yesterday when I tried logging into internet banking and found my account was suspended,” he said.

    “I have never committed any wrongdoing whatsoever and have not been told of any closure. I am in need of urgent assistance as I have no access to money and I am working away from home. I have no idea what to do and why this is happening.”

    Read the whole sorry tail from Moneywise HERE




    One of the institutions that we should be able to rely on is our bank, but, this case proves that our banks do not always treat us right.

    I hope that you can all take lessons from the problems the bank gave this innocent customer.

    Yes, the banks can be right royal bullies when they want to.

    I know for a fact that potential problems are flagged up by a computer and once started the following actions are much harder to stop.

    That is indeed a sorry tale, but I think that if we see what has happened to ordinary folk we might pay more attention to what we do. At least I hope so.

    It is downright ridiculous that we cannot trust our banks.

    Yes Angie, you are right that trust in our banks is the backbone of just about everything we do in life.
