NatWest Issues ReportsLatest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
Natwest are now offering mortgages at *1.04%* fixed for 5 years so I am very seriously considering a Help-To-Buy. Upside: Much bigger flat, equity, spare room/office Downside: Zone 4, dependent on Crossrail finishing, market risk, doubtful anyone would visit, less greenery
@paullewismoney @VintiquesMark There are loads of these scam texts. Not only HMRC, HSBC, NatWest, Royal Mail especially and yesterday from the delivery courier service DPD with even a precise time reference when they were unable to deliver. Block all such numbers!!!
@BenIrvineAuthor LOL people get their fair share!! Like a premium payment from Natwest recent profits ? Taxpayers get a share LOL what a pathetic joke, there is no such thing just an illusion. Keep working, keep voting for same broken system... unless you're in the system at a good pay grade
just sat on hold with awful music for 45 minutes just for them to tell me i now need to wait 5 working days for a letter 🤨 who’s coming with me to natwest to beat the ever living **** out of someone
I am about ready to go totally bloody nuts with NATWEST I have been trying for 3 months to set up a bank account for us but they keep allocating different people and it is really getting on my nerves. #natwest please sort your customer care out.
@Shaunjenks @AlexanderBystr5 I loved Monzo until they closed my account after getting my final wage from my old job because they deemed it “fraudulent”. They kept over half the money and they don’t talk to you if you don’t have an account. Got Starling and a natwest account. **** Monzo
@Wommando @cooperative I’ve always banked with NatWest (40 plus years) and I have had no issues. The banking App works well and Call Centre is good. Husband switched to another to get a cash inducement and now regrets it.
@NatWest_Help No problem, I'll get her to do that. Her Help to Buy is her only NatWest account
@Zubhaque @theAliceRoberts @NatWest_Help Nothing changes, 1987 my husband died suddenly aged 35, NatWest sent bill for credit card within the week! Dealing with 2 young children & my shock, it didn’t help, no sympathy
@LawdyMissClawdy @ThePureDrop From personal experience, with NatWest at least, if the bank spots potentially fraudulent activity on an account they will lock it and block all cards associated with it. They then notify you & ask you to contact them to confirm or otherwise the validity of recent transactions.
@premnsikka Natwest Bank is a pile of **** and needs to be sold off in my humble opinion... The amount of people its shafted is untrue
@PreetKGillMP @NatWestGroup Im a NatWest customer Preet, I use that very branch as it’s local, so v disappointed to see it go. Do I expect a private sector body to consult? Not reallty My choice to my money elsewhere if I wish of course
@CooperativeBank I can't belive I did the banking switch from Natwest in January to this god awful service! It's absolutely shocking for a bank to be this bad in 2021. Invest some of that community money into banking instead of bees for godsake! 🙈
only got today and the weekend then were not poor anymore and can go back to buying stupid **** for no reason. i actually hate you Natwest
@Chris_Maslin @monzo @StarlingBank Yeah I know, Unity was the only one I found. I'm a corporate and business banking customer NatWest and others, but they couldn't cope with it. Even thw EOT's company's existing bankers (Santander) of many years, and great credit etc couldn't help.
@Zubhaque @NatWest_Help That's terrible. I hope natwest realise their mistake and rectify things quickly.
@reallornaleeson I went to Starling after NatWest and Lloyds were awful. (so don't go to these, NatWest was the first company that consistently brought me to tears almost in every interaction). Starling and Tide were the ones I got recommended so I went with Starling at the time.
@PenLlawen NatWest aren't the poster boys of financial proprietary themselves tbf? Their parent RBS had to be bailed out for quite a bit more than a paltry £114m by us poor tax payers. I'm torn though as I have a NatWest pension from my time working for them I've yet to claim.
@jameshurley And will the NatWest case find the same? Did EVERY case in the HSBC ruling relate to drug lords? Unlikely. My argument is that AML rules are broken, an investigation or judgement doesn't imply nefariousness, carelessness maybe, but the friendly you are, the higher your risk.
@Zubhaque @NatWest_Help Assuming she was guarantor. How terrible for her-my heart goes out to her. #NatWest and all Banks should have a better consideration of circumstances following a relatives death. There's no need for such a rush -they have their own commercial insurance no doubt anyway!
Ok so I was with @StarlingBank - who were horrendous customer service wise (kept losing cheques + no compensation for it). Moved to @joinmettle who are part of @NatWest_Help. Expected to be able to pay cheques in at NatWest branches. NOPE. They don't accept cheques. That's right.
from Walthamstow, England
@aaronjdoots @NatWest_Help That is ridiculous. I stopped banking with NatWest years ago, awful attempt at a bank.
@NatWest_Help Natwest are clearly more interested in their £2.5 BN profit than responding to irate customers who have legitimate complaints about the lack of quality customer service# ps I'm not going away!!!!
I’ve already covered this issue, but this week shows another example of GDPR’s possible limitations, reported by @ComputerWeekly. @ICOnews has formally (finally) ducked out of a dispute between NatWest and one of its former employees over boxes of paper data. (1/8)
NatWest - 1st H Pre-tax profit of £2.505bn against loss of £770m a year ago - impairments down by £600m to £707m - *** 3p - Return on equity 11.7%, CET 18.2% - shares up 29.03% YTD and 83% a year ago. 15% of shares to be sold this year, taking Gov't/taxpayer stake to circa 40%

NatWest blocking my card again when I'm trying to buy a soundbar, **** offf
@LayahHeilpern @NatWest_Help Next tgey decide that they would prefer you to shop at Tescos and block payments to Sainsburys. If I want to withdraw my money and burn it, I can. It is reasonable for them to request you sign a waiver to remove liability from Natwest, nothing more. They exist because of my money
@FilmPhilDoc @TSB It's a pain. I spent about 15 years with NatWest. They managed to lose piles of cheques deposited with them on two separate occasions. Customer service terrible. A huge monolithic unresponsive slow bank. Have used Starling for business now for years- amazing.
@StandfieldKen Hey Ken, was wondering if I can lean on the community to help with depositing fiat to exchanges in the UK. For me, so far, Natwest bank has stopped payments to Binance, Coinbase, and Gemini. Frustrating as I'm trying to buy.
