Bank security - be patient while I vent
Opened a Nationwide FlexDirect account - tried to pay money into it from my Sainsbury savings account. Apparently, according to Sainsbury's, I 'don't own that account'. Erm - yes I do. Ended up having to transfer from Sainsbugs to my TSB account and then from TSB to Nationwide - TSB happy to accept that I have every right to pay money into my own account!! Now need to set up £1000 per month to go in and out to meet their Ts&Cs, heaven help us all.
I have a Wise sterling account, and needed to open a Wise Euro account. On my third attempt now, and still no further forward. Have scanned passport into the system via my laptop, taken a photo of it via my phone, taken a selfie, and transferred £20 as requested, all in order as I got a big green tick on my phone screen. Verification is 'in progress' and might take 5 days. I already have an account with them, dammit, use it regularly to transfer to Ireland and Australia.
To quote Piglet, 'This IS me.'
No longer a spouse, or trailing, but MSE won't allow me to change my username...
