An irritating race.
The first meeting seemed correct. Everything had gone through with success although a few things remained hazy.
The account took exactly 10 days to be opened. Letters arrived one after the other confirming the accessibility to the account and its resources...but things got complicated when for the fifth time, poping down for another missing form, a withdrawal on the account wasn't possible.
Now starting to feel a little lost in the tremendous maze of forms, they sat me down and nicely offered me - as well as the worst coffee made on earth - to run a credit check which ended...negative and without a clear explanation of the situation. Why? Shouldn't I be aware of this refusal...
So here I am with tones of papers, a debit-card, a credit-card which I don't remember applying for and finaly cuss all.
Piece of advice : Banks weren't created to help you in difficult situation. In a world led by money a bank is a business and will find any opportunity to make the most of your feeble financial situation. So please, do avoid getting caught into their admnistrative webs. Check all papers, notes and make sure you get to a quick end within the second interview. If not...abandon.
