Those great guys in the Square Mile are at it again. With a meticulous eye for detail they energetically set about their business ensuring every customer is a happy customer.
A month or so ago I was advised that as an old savings account I hadn’t used for several years was evidently dormant would be closed in March this year, and the remaining deposit (less than £10) donated to a registered charity. I thought if that’s its destiny then I’d prefer to close the account and give the money to a charity of my choice rather than theirs. It didn’t seem to cross anyone’s mind that perhaps the savings account wasn’t being used because they offered a meagre 0.001% interest on deposits. Yes, if the account had had £100 in it I would have earned a penny a year in interest. So I closed the account and this is the confirmation I received.
Where did that come from? Happy New Year!
