Re: Warning Don't Bank with Bank of Scotland

If you want a bank staffed by people, named people you can talk to, who can do something about it when you call them with a problem, I can recommend Weatherbys in Wellingborough. If the account goes overdrawn, they write to me to say they assume I will have already got money coming in to fix it, and apologise for troubling me. If I set up a new DD, they ring me to check it's kosher.

They aren't a clearing bank, they don't have branches, but they do issue cheque books and Visa debit cards, they do have online banking, and they are a breath of fresh air.

And you don't have to be a racehorse owner (although if you are, you certainly know Weatherbys).
