I had had modest savings with Bucks Building Society since the 1990s. But then they took my savings away from me, only telling me when I phoned that the account had been closed. After a lot of worry that I had been scammed, it turned out that Bucks themselves had closed my account and taken my savings! The Financial Ombudsman Service advise me that there were a number of similar closures around this time.
Well, I got my savings back .... eventually .... But then they reckoned I was only due £1.35 in interest. When I queried this, it turned out the correct figure was over £40!

SO IF YOU WANT A SOCIETY THAT TAKES YOUR MONEY AWAY FROM YOU
WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT, AND THEN TRIES TO GET AWAY WITH PAYING
YOU A FRACTION OF THE INTEREST YOU ARE DUE, GO TO THE BUCKS!

I corresponded directly with the Chief Executive, Board of Directors and Head of Operations after the problem became apparent. They took months dealing with things, and, when I further complained about their service, they took weeks looking into this and then the person who had dealt with the original case (Yes, the person I was complaining about!) reviewed the case and advised their service was perfect!

.... (REALLY??? .... A RESPECTED FINANCIAL INSTITUTION THAT CALCULATES INTEREST AT £1.35 RATHER THAN OVER £40 .... PERFECT ?????)

If I had not queried things, I would have been left with just £1.35 interest. And if I hadn't complained after discovering my money had been taken, I'd have had no savings, and no interest!

Very reliable and trustworthy people. Excellent service.

I visited them on 10 July 2021 for a quote. Their customer service was on point and fast. Kind and helpful staff too. I loved every step of the experience.
