I have had a Nationwide account for many years and kept it after moving back to Canada. My daughter decided to go to Bristol and so I wrote to the Nationwide to ask if she could be added to the account. I was told to fill in the necessary forms and it would work. We had to take my husband off the account. I double checked before I left and again told it was fine. Once in Bristol, we set up the account and I was told it was fine and my daughter had access. I left the country and my daughter went back to the bank and was told she not only had no access but that they had sent documents to our old address in Manchester. They had our address in Toronto for over 15 years. They were rude to her and then when I tried to contact them I couldn't get through the security because they asked how I set up the initial account. I had no recollection at all. Then I received a very terse letter two weeks later saying they couldn't add someone to an account when they lived overseas. I have written back and they said they will "investigate" and they are sorry. But this has cost us a fortune in fees for using the canadian account; the travel to Bristol; time wasted making sure we had all the documents when not one but three people told us we could do this. We are left with no access to the account unless I go over again. It is insane. My daughter now has an appointment with Barclays and we will transfer the accounts there and forget Nationwide.
