They made far too many mistakes in telephone banking and kept chopping and changing systems. As I worked away from home I was reliant on telephone banking. With 4 accounts Business, Money Markets, Current and Visa I had to call 4 different lines with disparate systems to get balances, then call them all again to make transfers. ?They cancelled my visa card when I wasrobbed "to be safe" when I knew it was locked in a safe and refused to put payments from my current account to my visa unless I gave them the 16 digit number. This led to accruing debts. They lost a payment to BT. BT weren't much use either an I was cut off. I took my statements into the branch to sort it out and they lost the statements. When I came to put in my year end accounts I was missing a month and received a heavy fine from Companies House and I had to close my business. A gobby teller laughed at my predicament and was supported by his manager. He's now an MP. One time when I telephoned they asked for my digits 2 and 5 or whatever from my security numbers. The woman had a thick scotch accent so I didn't hear I said which numbers did you want 2 and 5? She said that was wrong and I was blocked from my account. When my dad was in a hospice and my wallet was stolen they were extremely unhelpful and rude. This had serious repercussions in fulfilling my father's wishes as I couldn't even get the £10 for the death certificate. Many a night I had to spend outdoors because I was locked out of my accounts

Lazy, incompetent, and/or liars who work in their back office team. They don't have online systems for communication, they don't have outbound email or fax - ONLY letters - and they repeatedly tell you that they have sent very important letters when they have not. For 3 weeks we've been trying to make an important, but basic change to the mortgage. Making any request for amendment is passed on the by the customer service team . You can't speak to the back office team, yet they tell the CS team that it's been dealt with. So far, after at least 20 phone calls from various people including our solicitors, they have still not done the most basic of tasks. They don't have an online platform to see mortgage documents. EVERYTHING is done by letters. Hello the 1990s. The back office team are either lazy, liars or incompetent - or possibly all 3.
