after the old couple held at knifepoint and forced to withdraw cash it’s good to see the bank being vigilant. watch the scammer payback videos on youtube and you will probably see what’s happened!

Fast work, Santander Bank! Top marks if something dodgy did happen. Such a shame your colleagues at another branch didn’t act so fast, as far as reports to the Police were concerned, when one of the banks’ anti-fraud advisers stole £179,000 from your customers accounts. Still, I expect your prompt actions were fuelled by this very recent lesson. Or is it ‘us’ and ‘them’…?
