    Monzo? 11th Mar 18 at 11:24 AM
    I'm on the waiting-list for this but keen to here people's thoughts on whether it's safe and/or secure? Auto-budget features and no charges abroad look good, but not having branches etc - is it risky? Are other people trying new banks or have had good experiences of other ones?

    p.s. I'm a sucker for things shiny and new!

    I haven't had an issue with them. They don't like me topping up my account by debit card, though!
    I consider myself to be a male feminist. Is that allowed?

    Do you ever getting cheques (HMRC still issue cheques for refunds) ? If so you will still need a standard account to pay them in. Monzo doesn't really have a system to deal with them

    Thanks for the feedback! I don't use cheques - not sure I've ever used one tbh so should be ok on that front!
