I was made bankrupt last week and the earliest I could get to a Co-Operative bank was last Saturday. They filled out the forms on the computer. Didn't need any identification from me even though I had brought loads. Must be something to do with the Electoral Roll or something. Told I would get a something in the post during the week.
Then yesterday evening (Thursday) when I got home there was a letter with my new bank card for me to use. Completely shocked. So got my internet banking all set up ready to use. Just have to transfer everything over now
So much for the 6-8 weeks that some people experienced on this forum. Can't understand why. Feel sorry for those people who had to wait so long
