We have been advised by Debtline to open a new bank account as we start to negotiate with creditors. I was told that if you had a credit card with, say Halifax, and offered to pay less than the minimum payment, thehn Halifax could just take the rest of the money out of your current account.


I know First Direct is part of HSBC, but how can we find out what banks are associated?


Am I right in thinking that Halifax is part of RBS?


Is Barclays linked with any other bank?


Where could I find out this sort of information?


Many thanks



Halifax - £3533.02 reclaimed

MBNA1 - £150 reclaimed


First Direct - £330 reclaimed

MBNA2 (OH) – £275 reclaimed
