Hi guys,

 

A mate of mine has a CCJ, and is having problems getting a bank account. I advised her to go to Natwest, which is who gave me an account when I had huge debts before I went Bankrupt, but they declined her.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions of banks she can try?

 

Thanks,

 

Lisa

He is entitled to open a basic bank a/c with no credit facilities & will be provided with a DD card etc, all banks should offer a basic a/c but unfortunately 'front line' staff in the branches are not all aware of this. He would probably find it easier to apply 'online' with somewhere like the Cooperative & Natwest although a branch may have declined..

Most banks check your credit rating now if you want more than a basic a/c.

I have two CCJS and about forty creditors so you can imagine my credit file is shot to hell! I rang up the Co-Operative Bank last week because it is the only bank to whom I do not owe any money and I wanted to ringfence my income.

 

I asked the guy on the phone for a Cashminder Accound, comes with a Visa debit card and you can withdraw up to £250 a day from any machine, as well as internet banking. They gave me a reference number and I went with it into a branch, handed them my passport and the account was open within a week.

 

So I thoroughly recommend them.
