This bank refuses to close my account unless I provide information going back twenty years. This is under the guise of 'Anti-laundering' although nothing has changed in twenty years except the EU Directive.

To this day I still have not completed on the transaction. Considering that this is a remortgage it should have only taken about 3 weeks especially as the loan is for less than 30% of the value of my property!… Read Full Review
