    I need help opening A Bank Account without Proof of Address?

    I need help opening A Bank Account without Proof of Address? 14th Oct 08 at 7:21 PM

    I'm just wondering if anybody knows anyway around opening a bank account without proof of address?

    I've always been paid cash in hand since the age of never needed the use of a bank account. My employer is now in the next few weeks going to be paying our wages directly into bank accounts...but I don't have one!

    I tried to open one up with Natwest but they rejected me because I don't have proof of address. The women said any bank you go to will want proof of address.

    I rent a room in a house which inc all bills, so I don't have any untily bills etc

    The only docs I have is my Passport, NI Card and my Birth Certificate.

    The only think I can think of, is that a friend offered to open a bank account in his name and I can use that? Would that work? I trust him with my life, I've known him since I was 2 years old, So I don't think he's gonna do me over for a few quid!

    The Alsum Seekers and Polish seem to get away with it so there must be a way!

    Any help would be greatly appreachiated,
