I would agree that ING savings accounts are soooo complicated. Its really difficult to remember all the numbers you have to input online and its very easy to get locked out.

I wanted to open a savings account with ING Direct, I had to get several identification documents certified by a professional person, which I did, I asked a family friend who works for the Ministry of Defence, I sent all the certified documents along with a cheque to them, they wrote back stating that my certified documents were unacceptable and they had to be certified by a doctor or accountant or solicitor instead.

I contacted ING Direct to open a savings account, I was told to gather identification (birth cert, passport etc) and have them counter signed / certified by a professional person. I asked a family friend who works for the ministry of defence if he would do this. He certified all of my id documents and sent them to ING Direct along with my cheque as requested by them to open the account.
They then sent all of my id documents back to me, stating that they were unacceptable and had to be signed... (read more)
