Not as portable as they make out

They throw every obstacle in the way that they can. They really don't want you to switch product or move house. They want you to stay put, preferably on the standard variable rate for the next 23 years of your miserable existence

Conned me into paying for a Current Account

I was told if I paid monthly for the Current Account I would enjoy a better credit rating and access to better mortgage packages. When it came to getting a mortgage I found this to be false. I complained to the financial ombudsman and they ruled in...

I was told if I paid monthly for the Current Account I would enjoy a better credit rating and access to better mortgage packages. When it came to getting a mortgage I found this to be false. I complained to the financial ombudsman and they ruled in their favour just because they didn't have a full record of why I signed up to the paid package. Just like all other banks, not ethical like they try to pass off to being.

The Coop Bank has recently had a new online banking system. A perfect example of how to make a 'not very good system' into something dreadful. Apart from the fact that there are lots of access issues, wasting time on phone calls, queuing to be answered etc. Now, you cannot transfer money from a deposit account into any other account. That is how it has been designed. You want to transfer funds from your deposit account - do it on the phone. Unbelievable. Correction, it's the Coop Bank, it used to work but now it's been designed out. I'm moving.
