  • CIFAS problem

    Hi I use to bank with Metro bank and my friend wanted help so he said he wanted to use my account as a means of receiving money for his business. Soon later I got a letter from metro Bank that they have closed my account. At first I didn't complain. I then went to natwest to open an account. They denied both my standard and basic account applications. I knew something was wrong but I later went to Halifax who accepted my application but denied it staright away. They sent a letter saying I had a CIFAS marker. I don't know what to do and my parents would kill me if they know. What should I do please

        see what they got to say, as money laundering is a problem this day and age, as for letting a businnessman use your account sets alarms - be honest the Banks are/were the money launderers not peeps originally.

          Ok. Luckily I still have the guys number and am trying to get him to admit it so I can use it as a proof. Will that help anything?

                    Hi, I went to the bank on Monday and spoke to the branch's assistant manager. He was very helpful and friendly. I explained everything to him but he said there was nothing they can do and advised me to write another letter to the head office which I did with his help. He then told me that when I receive the letter from them, It would explain why they closed the account and what fraud agency has my name on their database. After that I would then have to call the fraud agency to explain what happened. He also advised me to call action fraud which I did and then took the reference number. He took the name of the guy and his number from me and sent an email to the head office about what happened with all the details I gave him. I am now waiting for the letter from metro Bank to arrive.

                          Hi I am the happiest person right now. I just got the letter and they said that they closed the account because of a transfer of 150 made but after reviewing the information I gave them they removed the information from CIFAS in the terms that I won't allow any third party to use my account wherever the account may be held. But however I am not allowed to bank with them anymore. Thank you very much for being by my side and I hope God blesses you. I also pray that you will find an angel who will help you in times of your need
