So I went to take out some cash on friday, confident I had roughly £250 in my account.

DENIED!

wtf? says I.

Pops into the bank, turns out some turd in the USA has used MY account to buy £300.15 worth of fuck knows what from some pharmaceutical company in Las Vegas.

Here's the kicker, local branches will refund up to £300 of fraudulant transactions then and there when reported, over £300 and they give you squat til its been investigated.

15 fucking pence and I get nothing.

Kicker number 2. The reason I was lifting money in the 1st place was because I needed cash to get me to the airport to catch a flight to spend the weekend with my girlfriend. So naturally the 1st thing I did was shit bricks, breeze blocks bitches. So at this point some fuck has overdrawn my account, I have no cash and I can't get to the airport. Fortunately I have a savings account with the bank and they let me take some cash out of that for the weekend (in English bills no less, they don't like the Scottish notes down south).

In the end I had a sextastic weekend, but now I have £20 left of my savings withdrawal (losing interest too, bastards) and they still haven't sorted my problem.

Booooooooo Fraud

This isn't the 1st time someone fucked me over. Last time was paypal for 500 euro worth of skype.

And yeah, I don't know how the fuck it's possible to run up 500 euro on skype either. I can tell you that paypal get your money back faster than the bank of Scotland though.

Ouch! How did they get your details? That really sucks!

And what's wrong with English notes? I saw a scottish one in my till's float for the first time today, I thought it was just a really crap counterfeit!

A good scam to run in a part of the country that don't even know what Scottish money looks like, by the way.

I know how you feel.

Some arsehole took £200 outta my accont and spent it on some clothes website. Luckly it was my credit card so they didnt take my money. The banks looking into it though so I wont have to pay for it.

Still a kick in the balls.

That really sucks. Atleast you got to spend the weekend with your girl though. And theres a possibility that you could get your money back. I mean it could have been worse, right?

Nothing wrong with English notes, they were preferable cus my girl lives in Cambridge just now. The bank lady knew that so she sorted me with English notes. Any Scot who has been to England with Scottish money knows the nightmare it can be when you get to the checkout or put down a Scottish note at a restaurant and supervisors and managers are called in and shifty eyed whispery conversations are held and they hold the thing up to the light and get out the special pens and rub it on paper etc etc.

I was trying to purchase guitar pro today and got a ring from my banks fraud detector as my card had been rejected for absolutely no logical reason.

Really? The guitar pro website transaction was done through a french site as well (which is logical seeing as the product is french itself originally) - strange...

I can order from Germany perfectly fine, but France always flags up


I smell a conspiracy! I do seriously wonder why it causes problems...

The bank rang within like 30 seconds of the transaction failing.

Guys, I just went to the bank here in U.S. and I stole 300 pounds from some poor fool in the UK hahahaha

The best part is that I spent it all on Viagra and other s*** when I went to a Las Vegas pharmacy.....yah it was great

EDIT: Oh s***!! Wrong thread.....

Well, it's really fishy cus they made the transactions last wednesday and thursday, I caught them on friday and neither of them had cleared, they were just "pending" but it still registered as overdrawn, even though it shouldn't have been.
