It became apparant to me yesterday that this is the case. I applied for another debit card (I currently have the useless, kiddish Electron card). I was credit scored and promptly turned down for it. WTF do they need to credit score me when all I want to do is use my own money in the most effective way I can??? :x
I don't want no overdraft and I don't want their effing money! I just want to use MY money in a way I feel fit. I have 12 years history at my bank and have only received one fine in 12 years. But they still treat me like a muppet.
I then applied for a new bank account at the A&L. I realised that the Woolwich didn't deserve my custom. They credit scored me and turned me down. WTF do they need to credit score me for a poxy current account??? :x
I always pay my bills, when they need to be paid. I am the most upstanding person you could ever hope to meet. My crime is that I am unemployed. That is it. Nothing more. It is apparant to me that big business doesn't give a crap about anyone other than those they can make money from. If you just want a functional service for your own benefit, they send you off with a flea in your ear. They wouldn't have credit scored me if I had wanted to make a purchase of an insurance policy would they? :roll:
If they are gonna use me as a pawn, why shouldnt I treat them in exactly the same way? I'm fed up with living in a godforsaken world that cares about nothing other than it's own self-interest. I am going to start thinking about myself a lot more in the future. When in Rome, do what the Romans do :whistling:
I say we should all start doing to others as they do unto you.
