I wasn’t going to write anymore before my holiday on Monday but someone reminded me of a couple of POL pilots yesterday that never got off the ground.
There are more than a couple.
So this morning just out of interest I had a quick look around the internet about the Post Office Current Account – I stopped in my tracks fairly quickly as yet another totally absurd example of the incompetence of these people turned up.
First – when did it start (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/bank-accounts/9985004/Post-Office-to-launch-current-account.html) 11th April 2013 “The Post Office said it will introduce the account in a small number of branches in the coming weeks, widening through its 11,500-strong branch network in 2014.”
Second – what has happened since. On the 22nd January 2015 the Telegraph reported (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/bank-accounts/11005213/League-table-the-banks-winning-and-losing-customers.html) Gained 333 new customers and LOST 820 customers in a 3 month period in 2014 !
Third – so how do you open a Post Office Account? It is available to open in selected branches only so how do you find one?
Follow these links:
b) on the page click Find Out More against Standard Accounts which will take you to a new page about Standard Accounts
c) Go to Want to Open an Account? To find your nearest branch click on the link provided.
d) See what I mean?
I wonder if Tim Parker knows what he is taking on?
Somebody should send him this blog.
