Scammers thwarted - thank you Bank.

Prompted by a post about scammers by @JudyEv today, let me tell you that I have a bank account I rarely use (long story) and yesterday I got the monthly statement that should have assured me that there was £5 in the account, there only for the purpose of keeping the account open. However the statement scolded me for being £90 overdrawn - a bewildering accusation. I did a lot of checking and discovered that some company in Switzerland has started helping itself to £30 of my lovely money each month, and so I was overdrawn and a charge was about to be levied. I contacted the bank and explained and within minutes all was put right and the stolen money returned. Nice bank.

Wow! I'm glad that you caught that, and that the account was restored properly.

That's a nice bank indeed. Our bank has on occasion contacted us to say there is some unusual activity going on with our account. It has no doubt saved us a heap of trauma.

Let me know the name of the company in Switzerland and I inform the police.
