Today I've been knocking on doors to find a friendly, welcoming bank who will take in an HSBC orphan.
BARCLAYS comes out bottom of the pile.
Q: "Do you ever close a client's account without explanation?"
A: "Yes, this is possible, for example if we suspect a client of fraud or money laundering. Of course, I'm not suggesting that that applies to you, Sir, but it is in our terms and conditions".
That phrase again! If I hear 'terms and conditions' one more time this week I'm going to tear my hair out.
Sorry, Barclays, I won't be banking with you.
