    Declined bank account twice at second stage 9th Nov 18 at 8:48 PM
    Hi

    I've been accepted by 2 different banks for an account but at the second stage CIFAS have intervened and the accounts have been denied.

    I am now without a bank account and have wages due in and bills due out plus no cash and I am a single parent.

    I have checked Experian, Noddle and Clearscore, nothing untoward. What is going on please I am so stressed!!

    Thank you
    Claire

    You need to find out what Cifas have recorded against you. The way to do that is submit a subject access request (SAR)

    Meanwhile you should be able to open a Loot prepaid account to receive wages and pay bills (but not DDs) :
