My friend, a single mum of two was notified by NWest bank that her account is beeing freezed. She begged them to explain why they closed the account. The brief reply was that someone from India tried to deposit large deposit on her account. 
She tried to open a different account with variety of banks. The answer from all is negative as she has black marker next to her name. 
The school where she works cannot pay the salary in cash. She has no means to live

She already contacted Fin Ombudsmen but that can drag on.

What can she do to open a bank account?
