    I couple of years ago I put £100 in my account but it didnt turn up in my account. When I complained they started to investigate ME for FRAUD!! :eek: :eek: It turns out some dizzy cashier dporred the paying in slip on the floor or something. All I got was a measly appology.
    Last year my student account expired as I had apparently graduated in 2000 (I had only completed my second year). They froze my account and started charging intrest on my overdraft. It took them over 3 months to sort it out. My car insurance direct debit failed to go through for 3 months in a row. I got them to write to my insurance company and tell them it was all their fault. They gave me all of my money back but no compensation. I wish I had pushed for it, but at the time I was just so glad to get it sorted out. It turned me into a nervous wreck. Bloody banks :mad:
