Review Pockit's Account now

Scam beware

Complete fraud, they've suspended my account with £4490 in it. I've never sent any money anywhere and when I did it got blocked. Ive sent them everything they've asked for and there's nothing else I can do. Pockit have even blocked me from opening up another ticket on there new contact form because i kept emailing them to get some sort of an answer and live web chat!! Haha what live web chat its non existent! So basically now I can't contact them at all because i can't send any emails to them. They say it in the terms and conditions 7.6 that they will withhold your money, please read and don't make the same mistake I did, I'm fortunate enough to not desperately need the money but there are many people that do and Pockit are financial criminal fraudsters that hide behind legislations and acts of law, but they are not above the law. They take money from hard working people to only fill there own pockets, its the only thing that makes any sense because surely they would want account's up and running as this is the way they make money from people transactions. Im a business owner/director and if i had this many bad reviews I would be having a complete business restructure or I would close the company down, which makes me believe that the company is going down the toilet and it couldn't care less about its image and customers/future customers. From a financial point of view this company is running itself into the ground, the only people who will use it from now on are the people that have not read these reviews like me. I've made a complaint to the Financial Ombudsman (there ref PNX-4362556-B5L5) I'm not betting on getting my money back and I'm looking at it as a loss, I can guarantee though I will not let these financial criminals get away with this and I will use every avenue available to me to bring these criminals to justice and accountable for there actions. So Mr CEO/MD anyone with authority be aware your likely to be facing a prison sentence in the future for fraud

I transferred £2800 to a Pockit account but the Account had been closed and the money should have been returned to my account but Pockit put it into a suspended account and will not return it to me. My Bank NatWest has contacted them but just get the runaround. We are now contacting all the usual Authorities but reading the comments below it appears they couldn’t care less. Never answer calls or emails. They did suggest that if I paid more money they would return it but reading the comments below it was throwing good money after bad !! And todate after more than a year they are still holding my money. Be warned!!!

Even though your money is your own, they put caps on how many direct debits and transactions you can pay, I have had a direct debit refused, because I had made to many transactions they then said it was lack of funds it wasn’t they just did not pay it, that’s 2nd time, I am 66 pay everything by direct debit or bank transfer , so I rely on being able to do this. My advice is don’t bother with them, they wouldn’t even let me send money to my son to help with food , disgusting

I literally fed up of this bank
I literally fed up of this bank, there’s no contact number, no live chat and no emails reply.
Last week Monday someone used my card and I’ve been contacting Pockit since.
No one has come back to me yet.
I’m discouraged to use this bank again because that’s actually bad costumer service.
As soon as I sort out my situation, I will move all my funds to my other account and stop using Pockit account forever.

Hello Thomas Moloney ‪119534319‬ I have had my pockit account restricted for over 6 weeks and been waiting over 5 weeks for a response from pockit regarding my account, as its still restricted, The stress of my account being restricted and not being able to access any of my dwp payments has really affected me I am unable to pay my rent or buy food to support myself this has been going on for over 6 weeks,

I receive a email 6 weeks later last Friday stating they have closed my account and said they have returned my funds to the source but after speaking to the DWP my money hasn't been returned its been 7 days since the email so I don't know where my money has gone, this is causing me so many issues with my mental health and money problems, I am know now in rent arrears and struggling to eat because they have kept hold of my sick benefits payments and housing benefit.

I've no idea how these people are still trading. They froze my account in Sept 2020 and ignored all emails until I opened a Resolver case. Even then they just kept saying they could only deal with my email directly, even though they never responded to anything I sent.

In April of this year I got an email stating that my account was being closed and to provide an account to send the money to. I did this and was told money has been sent. It hasn't been. Nothing received and ignoring all emails since. No proof of transfer etc or even an acknowledgment of receiving the emails etc.

I got in touch with the Financial Ombudsman service and Pockit denied that I even had an account with them. Absolute scum. Pockit reply to any review saying that they have to comply with FCA rules etc but I don't know what rules state that you have to ignore every email a customer sends you for months on end.

The fact that they no longer have a phoneline is a massive flag.

Today, ALL OF MY MONEY HAS BEEN ILLEGALLY SENT TO AN ACCOUNT CALLED RTS! Who are these people???? How can we stop this? I’ve contacted FCA and FOS still nothing? My account is now at £0.00! I don’t know what to do anymore. Robbing vile scum. They’re leaving people in seriously shit situations. I’m very fortunate to have a brilliant support network who helped me financially, what happens when this is done to someone who doesn’t? Suicide at the hands of these people is close. Disgusting, vile and sick people.

ONE STARS GIVEN, PURLY BECAUSE I CAN'T LEAVE MINUS STARS.
FOR OVER 4 MONTHS I HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO ACCESS MY MONEY IN MY POCKIT ACCOUNT.
E-MAIL QUESTIONS TO POCKIT DO NOT RECEIVE CREDIBLE ANSWERS-IF THEY ANSWER AT ALL- AND NO TIME GIVEN AS TO WHEN MY ACCOUNT WILL BECOME AVAILABLE AGAIN.
THEY ASK FOR PROOF OF MY VARIOUS DETAILS WHICH ARE ONLY STALLING METHODS TO AVOID DOING ANYTHING.
WHY DOESN'T THE FINANCIAL OMBUDSMAN DO ANYTHING? THEY MUST HAVE THOUSANDS OF POCKIT CUSTOMERS WHO HAVE CONTACTED THEM WHO ARE IN THE SAME BOAT AS ME.
THEY ARE STILL TAKING ON NEW CUSTOMERS, HOW CAN THIS BE WHEN THINGS ARE AS THEY ARE?
THIS IS GOING TO END BADLY FOR THOUSANDS OF POCKIT CUSTOMERS.

The founder of the company was on radio 4 money box programme promising to get all the accounts blocked unblocked this was all just talk .

Opened an account a couple of weeks ago. I set up my new business a month ago and have a separate business account, i thought I would use Pockit to pay myself from the business account. I sent £50 to my Pockit account, then sent £100 and they have restricted my account. Starting out in business is hard enough but for them to do this is disgusting. I have sent ALL the info and documents they requested on the 20th July and heard nothing back and my account is still restricted and they still have my money. Outraged that Pockit are allowed to behave this way and reading some of the other reviews where people cant pay rent and have tried to commit suicide is unbelievable! Pockit - what the hell are you doing ?
