“Lloyds clicksafe”

Written on: 29/04/2014 by carrie36 (1 review written)

Nearly every time that I try to pay money into my National Savings from my Lloyds current account clicksafe declines my payment. They say that they will contact you to verify that it is you making the payment but they don't and the telephone number they display with a C5 reference is permanently on hold, I tried to get through five times yesterday and gave up each time after waiting for ages and watching the credit disappear from my phone. There is no e-mail address to contact Lloyds and you… Read Full Review

“SANTANDER”

Written on: 16/09/2013

I needed to replace my Visa debit card as my neighbours are hacking me, openly repeat my card number and the security code. They enjoy listening to my private life. I had spoken to Santander about this and they suggested I should change my accounts. 11th September 2013 I decided that I would change the card in case they use it.(After19.00 hrs) When I speak to Santander I ask if they will honour my purchases that I have made on line, 3 times I ask her will she honour my grocery shopping. I… Read Full Review

“Predatory Natwest customer services”

Written on: 26/06/2012

Recently, I became unemployed and fell into mortgage arrears with Natwest. I made a few arrangements with them to pay off the arrears. The arrangements are renewed every six months. I phone them occasionally to inform them that one of my payments will be late. However, there are two predators working in the mortgage credit management department (named Jack and Robert) who insist on wasting my phone credit to look deep into my mortgage history and to threaten me that I am breaking the… Read Full Review

“Clicksafe on Lloyds TSB”

Written on: 29/05/2012

I have tried to use my Lloyds TSB business debut card on a company website yesterday. After filling in the payment form it took me to Clicksafe, which failed with the following error message: "Payment Failed. Please click on the Order button above to go back and try an alternative payment method." I have then tried another debit card and received the same error message. This morning I have called Lloyds TSB and was eventually put through to "Clicksafe Support". I was shocked by the incompetence… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/06/2011

Hi there, I need you advise. You know someone was trying to get an access into my online banking and now my account is blocked moreover it’s already closed. I m going to open another account but not sure which bank to choose. I feel so unsafe coz of a lot of money laundering. I just need to know maybe someone knows the way to avoid illegal entering into online banking? Have you ever used text alerts or mobile banking? What bank would you offer to open the account in? Thanks… Read Full Review

“Santander. What an appalling bank this is. Customers...”

Written on: 27/03/2011 by Kirvy (1 review written)

Santander. What an appalling bank this is. Customers clearly don't matter. They've got your money and could not care less about how you get treated. My internet banking became locked. Not through anything I had done, it was a system fault. (Alarm bells should have rung at this point, as they use the same system to administer my account). Two weeks to get a new pin. New pin arrives at last. Enter it into the website - Account locked! Ring customer services to be told that I should have… Read Full Review

“I have a Santander credit card with a resonable amount...”

Written on: 19/03/2011

I have a Santander credit card with a resonable amount of credit on. I recently lost my wallet so the only access to funds I had until my new cards turned up was to use this card which was the only one not in my wallet fortunately - or so I thought!. I work away from home frequently and travel by my own vehicle.

Today I travelled up north to work a good 4 hours from home armed with my trusty Santander credit card for any eventuality. I worked my shift and pulled into a petrol station to fuel… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/11/2009

My son applied for a post graduate student loan from Barclays to cover his costs for his MSc course (Oct 2009 -2010) in May this year. He has been trying to get an answer from them ever since. They would not let him apply until half way through the summer as they were revising procedures, but he applied as soon as he could. Since then he has been supplying them with more and more details for money laundering etc etc etc - its now 16th of November and he started his course at the beginning of… Read Full Review

“Banks have been over charging for years and now there...”

Written on: 01/10/2007 by artofohm (11 reviews written)

Banks have been over charging for years and now there are companies out there that help everyday people deal with banks.

For the everyday person on the street its an uphill task but if you use a company like "UK Bank Complaint Forum" they will go after the banks on your behalf and charge you a mere 10% only on retrieved funds.

I do not work for them or have any affiliation with them, I just signed up myself today and think more people should be aware of what's rightfully theirs… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/05/2005 by Paul Smith (3 reviews written)

Unfair bank charges, rude staff, computerised phone operators, call centres on another continent. All these things which make you see red. Now the UK Bank Complaint Forum is a place where you can voice your opinion. Each major high street bank has it's own section with topic statistics, so the worst ones will show up for what they are. The only restrictions are 1) No staff members should be named, and 2) Any post should be factual. Otherwise anything goes within the bounds of decency… Read Full Review

Malcolm Hardy's Response to Paul Smith's Review

Written on: 23/10/2005

If you hold a Halifax Credit card be warned as follows. I have a Halifax Platinum credit card, my credit limit was set at £12,800, in September 2005 I made an error and sent the wrong cheque to the wrong bank, although my cheque to Halifax arrived on time, the ammount was £39,40 short of the required payment, not only was I charged a late fee of £25, they lowered my credit line from the £12,800 to the amount I owed on my card, despite the bank agreeing that I made a mistake they refuse to reinstate my credit line although I have perfect credit.
