Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I got a letter from RBS saying my bank account hasn't been used in a while so they would close the account unless I fill in some sort of form. I missed the deadline for returning the form and so my account has been closed (have no issues with this since I wasn't using it) but I had some money in there.. Can I get this back?

    Talk to them. This happened to me (not with RBS) and because my details with them didn't have an active bank account, I got a cheque. For a grand total of 32p.

    I got a similar letter but with another bank about an un used account. So I will get that closed asap. With your account , they will give you your money back but I think you have to go in with your ID before they will hand it over you.*
