Default Banks closing accounts over complaints

Wow - get this - if you complain about the illegal charges a bank makes, and take them to court to reclaim costs, the bank may close your account.

Appears to have been happening with the Alliance & Leicester:
BBC NEWS | Programmes | Moneybox | Bank account closures criticised

Quote:
Banks which close the accounts of customers who take them to court to reclaim their bank charges have been criticised by the Financial Ombudsman.

In an adjudication it said the Alliance and Leicester's closure of one such customer's account was neither fair nor reasonable.

Well, thatís good..who would want to deal with a bank like that anyway? I would then go to a credit union..they are a lot better than banks...

of course its legal, banks get away with everything but murder. i would switch to a credit union but its too much of a hassle because I plan on moving sometimes early next year.

Yeah, Of course as they want to protect them selves so they have to do it. I think it should not be legal .

You know, if a customer complained about my bank and they closed her account, I'd close MY account and tell them why!
