  6. As the FSA publishes new rules on packaged accounts, we ask what is the point? It never rains but it pours. This truism doesn't seem to just apply to the weather this summer, but the problems the banking industry has mired itself in. After the shocking revelations from Barclays, following on from the catastrophic computer problems at RBS and NatWest, bank chiefs - well, those still in their jobs - are now braced for another grilling from the regulators, this time it is about how they sell current accounts. In the spotlight are so-called "premium" bank accounts, where customers pay a monthly fee for their account in return for a ragbag of freebies and perks. These can include travel insurance, breakdown cover, mobile phone insurance, discounts on overdraft fees, as well as less tangible benefits, such as free will-writing services, or access to business-class lounges at airports. But the fees can be substantial. The top of the range will cost £300 a year, with the average "packaged" account setting customers back almost £200 a year. Despite this cost, millions have signed up. Latest estimates suggest every other new account opened is "premium"; in total, more than 10million people now pay for the service, around one in five of all current accounts. Of course, there aren't millions of people marching into bank branches, or phoning call centres, demanding to pay for banking services which they previously had for free - even if they do include European travel insurance.

  8. Thousands were left out of pocket yesterday after the Royal Bank of Scotland was at the centre of a new computer meltdown. About 100,000 customers of Thinkbanking, whose accounts are held by RBS, did not have their balances updated because of a technical problem. The hitch came a fortnight after the RBS computer breakdown left millions of customers of NatWest, owned by RBS, unable to access their cash.

  9. After hearing the same story from 3 former SSE customers recently.I thought it would be a good idea to start this thread as it looks like this was routine practice. It seems SSE advised customers who were looking to switch from them that they would need to pay £200 since this was their balance owing as their Direct Debit payment amounts were set to low by SSE. As some will know SSE were fined £1.25m for their doorstep selling practices see here; As a result OFGEM ordered SSE to compensate those customers affected. SSE claim that they need a few weeks to act on a complaint of miss selling to determine how much the overpayment if any will be. This presumably means checking their charges agains a customers previous /existing one before they were miss sold the SSE package. What many are asking is how can we be sure they will arrive at the right figures given their history ?
  10. Banks and energy firms including HSBC, Royal Bank of Scotland and Scottish Power are forcing their customers to use expensive premium phone lines to speak to them, while potential new customers are offered free 0800 phone lines, research by Which? has found. The consumer group said that 27 of the 34 banks, energy companies and insurers that it investigated are luring potential new customers with free phone numbers while existing customers have to pay up to £8 for a 20 minute call on an 0845, 0870 or 0871 number. Further, Which? found that 20 of the companies make their customers call premium numbers to make formal complaints about bad service or problems with their bills. Richard Lloyd, executive director at Which?, said: “It is unbelievable that companies would add insult to injury by charging their customers a premium to make a complaint. It's even worse when they offer new customers access to 0800 numbers while leaving loyal customers to pay more.” Which? Is calling for greater transparency and easy-to-understand information about what calls cost. An HSBC spokesman said that it offers “multiple ways” for its customers to contact it, including via email or online, and that it always tries to keep costs of phone calls low for its customers.

  16. Barclaycard is axing its loyalty points scheme 'Freedom', giving customers two months to redeem their rewards. Barclaycard said that the scheme – which is available to the majority of its 12 million customers – is being scrapped because it wants to focus on 'other product development'. Customers will have until July 26 to spend their points and any unused rewards after this time will be paid back automatically to most customers – as long as they’ve used their card in the last six months and have a balance of £3 or more.
