  1.

They do not want to upset the hand that feeds them, as most practices are heavily involved with the major banks in lucrative debt recovery operations these days. But I have found one who has kindly offered to write to the Bank on my beh
  2. The UK Bank in question still “TOTALLY REFUSES” to talk about the Frozen Current Account. The Financial Ombudsman Service complaints service is ONLY interested in cases where the Bank has acted UNLAWFULLY, which they say does not apply in this case.

  6. Most Likely the Bank suspects Money Laundering, as were previously asking questions regarding “International Transactions” which was how a UK to UK CHAPS Transfer ended up recorded on the relevant online current account statement. What recourse does one have if the Bank refuses to discuss the matter? Who does one contact in the UK to try to find out if indeed a Legal investigation is taking place?
  7. SUBJECT: FROZEN UK BANK ACCOUNT A UK Bank Current Account has been frozen by one of the "Big Five" UK National Banks. Where can I go to get information regarding rectifying such an incident and/or compelling the bank to justify their actions / release the money? Issues applicable to this case: 1) UK National Bank. 2) Bank Freezes customers UK current account. 3) Bank refuses to explain the reason why account is suspended. 4) Bank Manager Sends letter stating – "unable to enter into further discussion on the matter".
