Santander: Already annoying British savers
They may be pretty new to the British high street, but Santander have wasted no time at all in winding everyone up. A series of schoolboy errors and bad service has left people trying to stab themselves to death with those pens-on-chains.
Of course, Santander took over Abbey, Alliance & Leicester and Bradford & Bingley which sees them housing a huge customer base of more than 25 million.
However, despite winning everyone over with their marketing drive, it seems that they've forgotten to be any good at what they do. This of course has left the Spaniards dealing with lots of that most British of traits - complaints.
Some of the grips have included their losing cash Isa transfers, erroneous tax deductions from cash Isas, badly calculated interest on savings accounts leaving customers out of pocket, victims of fraud being fobbed off when trying to get their hands on payouts, not telling customers about rate changes and general rubbishness when dealing with complaints.
This has lead to Which! announcing that Santander are the worst bank in terms of customer satisfaction.
James Daley, editor of Which! Money, says: 'Our money helpline gets a constant stream of complaints about Santander, mainly about slow Isa transfers and poor customer service. The bank is at the bottom of the pile of our latest customer satisfaction survey. It has a long way to go to come up to scratch.'
Have you had a rotten time dealing with them or any of the banks they took over? Spout off in the comments if so and hopefully, they'll start taking some notice.
