    Abbey bank down?

    Have been ordering items this morning.
    Just gone to buy a new memory card and i get declined
    Checked balance this morning and had way more than enough cash.
    Called Abbey and they say that all systems are down for about 4 hours. !!!

    ABBEY?
    Going bust?
    What a laugh!
    Sorry for the customers but what do you expect from the most dishonest bank there ever was in the UK?

    Yeah , I would'nt trust Abbey as far as I could throw them . Not speaking from personal experience ,but a work colleague just a month ago had £4500 transfered out of her bank account to an account in Spain .She new nothing about it until she withdrew some money out of the hole in the wall and saw her ballance. She checked with her bank and there had been 2 transfers within 3 days . The bank had autorised the payments and as said , she knew nothing about it .Her account was frozen and Abbey said it would take 3 weeks to be sorted out and the money returned . It has been returned , last week , but with no explanation or applogy .They would'nt give any explanation how or why this had happended.
    Would never trust a Bank after something like this , she wont either and has opened an account with the A & L .

    Just a quick update on this

    The ever so nice people at abbey put me through to the fraud department today.
    Turned out that buying a memory card for £6.99 from mymemory.com "flagged up" on there system...so rather than calling me..they decided to lock my account. ....Just had a very nice meal in franky and bennys..only to find i couldnt pay for it
    ad to go through loads of checks with them and they unlocked it..But 2 hours later and im still not able to get to my money.
    Pretty steaming right now
