Banks are just crooked
Several years ago I withdrew £200 from a cash machine in a pub. It payed out £170 and stopped. I immediatly told the pub landlady who washed her hands quickly of it.
I called the bank, they said they would check the machine. I heard nothing.
After half a dozen letter to them I got a letter back saying that no error had been found on that machine.
I had 3 accounts with them and a mortgage and had backed with them for 20 odd years.
They was no way they were going to give me my money (obvisouly they took £200 from my account!).
I wrote to the area manager and conceeded, there was no way I could "prove" this error, but I asked him to consider my following question and respond. Then I would drop the claim.
I asked him why, when I had a current account, mortgage, savings account, house insurance - together worth many thousands of pounds and since I earned a decent salary - although not enough to happily say bye to £30 - why I would try and fiddle the bank out of £30? Surely if I was going to fiddle, I'd have gone for mor ethan £30.
I heard nothing but did get the £30.
Sharks.... BE CAREFUL
Why the Icon - I bet she never makes unwanted withdrawals
