    The march 2012 br club 23rd Feb 12 at 11:45 AM
    Hi everyone, welcome to the March 2012
    Bankruptcy Club.

    This club is for everyone who has gone or going through the process of Bankruptcy during March 2012. So please feel free to join and post.

    Pop your name on here, the date that you went Bankrupt and the stage that you are at now in your Bankruptcy. And then just keep everyone in the club updated throughout the next year about your journey through Bankruptcy. That way we can all stick together and compare notes and we will be there to support each other throughout the different stages in our Bankruptcy.

    Remember this is your board so keep posting.

    Obviously anyone can come on here and post anything that will help us all and you are all welcome. Any important questions that do need answering are maybe still better posted on the main board but if you do put it on here, then maybe we can help each other.

    Hopefully it will be an extra place for friendship and support as we compare notes and discuss what is happening with our Bankruptcies.

    Please leave a post when you have been declared BR, and I will update the list.

    *PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE TOO MUCH INFO, THE IS ARE KNOWN TO FREQUENT THIS SITE AND TOO MUCH INFO MAY MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO IDENTIFY INDIVIDUAL CASES, SO KEEP INFO TO A MINIMUM, ie USERNAME AND DATE ONLY."

    I went Bankrupt on March 5th.
    Everything went very smoothly and seemed to be trouble free right up untill last week when santander froze my account. It seems to be almost impossible to get them to release my money. I've spent two days with a customer services advisor at my local branch and have had zero luck so far

    Yes the OR faxed a letter to Santander saying he had no interest in the account.

    Santander just seem to be making it as awkward as possible, nobody seemed to have any idea how to go about unfreezing my account. My advisor was phoning and faxing various internal departments all day.

    Thought it was all sorted with the OR's letter faxed to the correct department and everything, but when phoning through to have the block lifted so that I could withdraw my cash, my advisor was told to go back to the OR and get another letter showing the exact amount that was in the account.

    That was at 4:50pm and bank was closing. I have to go back again tomorrow now. I phoned the OR today and was told he would provide a letter stating he is uninterested in the account (which he has already done twice) but would not state the amount of money that is in the account.

    Ok I managed to get my cash from Santander on Saturday 5th.
    I was told that the account was going to be closed by head office and a cheque would be sent to me.
    I logged onto internet banking and lo and behold my account was active. So I transferred everything to my girlfriends account. One quick trip to the bank and she got my cash out for me

    Now I'm just waiting for my new cashminder account details to be posted so I can change my pay details.

    I can't speak badly enough about Santander. They suck badly and I recommend that everybody stops using them.

    Hi,

    Nearing the time when I receive a letter discharging me (I hope!)

    I want to hit the ground running with regards to moving on with rebuilding my credit etc etc. What is the best course of action? Where shall I look? What can be done?

    Any help will be really appreciated!

    Thanks
