I am coming to you for some words of advice and inspiration.
So about 11 weeks I started the task of opening an account in France. I got a job, bought a house (that’s another story), got a phone contract, (again another story), and settled on ING Direct.
After the constant demand for some document or another I got to the stage where they opened my account. I even had an online log in and rib. All I had to do was make a transfer of at least €300 to activate the account.
Well, No. I transferred £1000 from my UK Nationwide account, and my new job even paid my first salary into it. I can see it now, sitting in my online banking page. However, I can not access it.
So, I was told they sent my card out on 12th Jan. It never came. So I phoned, and they said they will resend it. Again, it never arrived.
So tonight, 21st Feb, we phoned again, and I’m told due to Brexit, they are unable to allow me to have an account. (Which was set up, with my funds already in).
WHAT? Did you read that right? YES!!!
I can see my account, with my salary, and funds sitting in there. A rib that I have given to my employer, also used to apply for my social security number, and my active online portal. But I actually don’t have an account.
