    Not sure how to 'warn' others, so using this forum. There has been some negative feedback about Ulster Bank regarding credit ratings, but the one thing that has made me decide to move after having only been with them a few weeks, is they use such antiquated technology. I opened an Easy Savings account and never gave it a thought that I wouldn't be able to transfer monies to nominated recipients on-line. But have now discovered I had to have a Card Reader. I eventually got that and now have to wait a further 5-6 working days for a card to put in it plus another 3 days for the PIN number. I didn't know this way of working still existed. I am going to ditch them in favour of something more accessible on-line.

    You'd think this might have already been mentioned a few times on this forum.....

    They use a tailored version of the RBS platform.

    If you open a savings account with RBS, NatWest, Ulster or IOM bank - you'll need to use a card reader (and authorisation card) if you don't have a debit card with them to slot in the card reader.

    Barclays, Co-op and Nationwide all use a similar system.

    It is high risk to deposit any money into anywhere without having first ascertained how you'd get your money out again. #NoSympathy
