Just been informed that as from the end of this month the Halifax will be refusing cheques.
Is this the banks revenge on the public for ganging up on them.?
At my bank,Nationwide Bairrespective of the amount,they charge £25 for an electronic transfer.A nice little money earner on the way.
So to continue the family syndicate i have to e-transfer the sum and get charged £25 for it,or send it cash in post,not a good solution.
not really keen on internet banking but maybe have to change my opinion.
Don't really trust Paypal,recently made a mistake on upgrading WinPatrol to full version,BillP's support team sorted it though.Terrific service from them.
As the replies show i am a bit of an old fuddy who will have to adapt to the new realities.
Yes there was a reprieve from 2 years ago,so it has been coming.

Living miles from our nearest town, I and my wife have used Internet Banking for many years now. I can't remember when I last went into my branch. I doubt if they would know either of us.
We set up S.Os, D.Ds transfer money between our bank and Internet Building Society accounts with no problems what so ever.
We regularly go online and check our accounts and are able to see exactly from day to day our balances. Neither of us have paid any bank charges for over 12 years.
Apart from day to day household food shopping which we also could if we wanted, we buy most things on line.
