Opened a new bank account.
Paid in some cash..
Tried to use the card for the first time, to make a purchase.
Bank blocks the transaction, false positive fraud detection.
The bank account I’ve just closed did the same thing.
The other bank account I tried to use didn’t work – I think the retailer blocks their cards.
Logged into the new bank account to send them a message.
“You cannot log in now, as we’re shut down for four hours when the clocks go forward.”
Utter total stupendous facepalm.
There is a crying need for MORE COMPETITION IN BANKING.
