Bank account closed without warning

Recommended Posts

I found out yesterday that RBS have closed my account with no warning and they have said I can't get any funds out of the account.

 

They say there is a letter on it's way - it leaves me in a bad way just a few days before Christmas.

 

They told me to contact them in the New Year to see if there is any update.

 

How long can they keep my money for?

 

I had an old debt with Natwest going back 20 years - can they take this from my RBS funds??

Welcome back to CAG - They may attempt to use the Right To Offset - But i am unsure if they are able to do so (Had this issue previously)

Can you setup another account elsewhere / Do you have a parachute account already?

 

Have you had any transfer in or out recently?

I already know that I am on the CIFAS register (not my fault) but it was too stressful to fight the case so I would imagine this is the reason - the RBS was my spare account when the previous account was closed! I do have one other bank account that is still open and not linked to RBS

I really need my funds back

If you are on the CIFAS register then this will be RBS seeing that and going - "Nope - We dont want you"...

AS for funds - It depends on the situation - If these are your funds - Then technically they should arrange for full withdrawal providing their Fraud Team identify they are genuinely yours.

Ok thank you - I can show where all the funds came from so I just hope they release them - what sort of proof will they want - contact details of everyone who deposited them? I have a lot of transactions

Oh hang on a sec - Lots of deposits? ... That doesnt sound good.

Not saying that youve done anything wrong but if you have lots of deposits, sometimes it can ring alarm bells...

I know it might not sound good - but I had no other account so had to use it for business

I understand that - So I see a few pointers here

 

1 - You've breached the T&Cs of the account more than likely - A Current Account is for Consumers only - Businesses need to have a Separate Current Account

2 - You have a CIFAS marker... 'Nuff Said

3 - Money sent to you may have come from an untrustworthy source

4 - Debt oustanding to RBS Group

 

Unfortunately the bank works under a veil for things like this... Part of Money Laundering Laws / KYC.

How much is it that they have kept?

Somebody paid several thousands into my husbands business account - he informed Barclays and the police that it was an unexpected payment so they dealt with it. Result was account closed and we were put on CIFAS register.

RBS have quite a few thousand at the moment

Right lets deal with Barclays. What did you do to deal with them?

 

RBS - Well - I dont know what to suggest - Apart from sending a SAR Request to them.

You could complain to the CEO but we really need to try and sort this in some way.

 

Thing is - We cant help you unless you tell us EVERYTHING.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
