    Presumably, the reason so many people have not had a response from TSB, is because some of us lucky ones were sent a response saying they would be in contact with us within 4 weeks... and happily enclosed the letters of several others too (including their full name, address, and complaint reference number)

    How on earth would TSB know who has reveived a letter and who, like me, got sent a handful of letters addressed to various others?
    The only sensible way would be to have re-run that day's letters, ensuring 1 letter per envelope and re-sending ... but as I didn't receive another copy, then that was presumably not done.

    Anyway the letter was dated 17/05/2018, and the 4 weeks have now elapsed.
    The letter does indicate I can now take the matter to the ombudsman, and it goes onto say there is no time limit (usually complaints have to be lodged lodged with the ombudsman within 6 months)

    Still waiting (two of us here) despite both having received 'personal' responses from Paul Pester three weeks ago:

    ".......I have passed your note to my Head of Customer Service and asked her to ensure that she, or one of her team, contacts you as soon as possible.

    Thank you once again for contacting me.



    Paul Pester
    CEO, TSB Bank plc"

    I don't think he's got a clue what's actually going on in his bank, and since he's pretty obviously on his way out, I doubt he cares much either! :)
