Sales call. Trust me! Had a few in the past. Usually trying to get you to take out an ISA or something.

I hate it when the bank rings me, then starts wanting to test my security

Helllooooooo? YOU rang ME? I'm not giving out the answers to ANY security questions to someone who rang ME.

Also last week my lad's bank, the infamous LloydsTSB rang him, he needed to make a payment. He agreed to do so and WANTED to pay 35, no, they would only accept 27 as that was what he owed

Off they went, then it turns out they can't accept it anyway, technical hitch.

NEXT DAY, they are ringing him again asking why he hasn't made the payment.

Hellloooooo? YOU couldn't accept it?

And then they wonder why they get told to fek off. And 90% of the population hate them.

I usually get those letter when I've just deposited a large sum of money in the current account (i.e from selling a car etc).

I'm on Lloyds private banking now.....no call centres, direct acess to a human who can actually sort things out at the drop of a hat. Thank ****.

Still need to go through call centres for the credit card though..."would you like payment protection sir?" For the last time....NO!

Agreed, this is the most stupid system/idea in the world. A random person rings me and then asks me to confirm my identity! **** right off, you've just rung me you confirm your identity! It usually is the bank and they do have this system in place but I always tell them to bugger off and develop a new system

I'm with Lloyds, every year they ring to get me to go in and review my account. Why? My wage goes in, and is swiftly depleted, unless they have an account that tops itself up I fail to see how it can be bettered?!

A bint rang the other night, really pushy and wanted to know when I could go in. I said I couldn't be bothered as it's such a waste of time!

Yes, if you haven't got one already, or 80-90% towards the end of a current one without defaulting.

They will want you to have a "premium" account, they sent me letters saying they had tried to conract me which they hadent, i kept binning them, eventually they did ring me to ask why I hadent responded to letters, they arranged for an appointment for a financial review, i told them i wouldn't go, sure enough I didn't go then they started calling me asking why i didn't turn up!
Got to love banks
