The news at 10 tells me Natwest have some technical problems.

Apparently I am £65,847.04 overdrawn, and the business account seems considerably more healthy than I fear is the truth.

I wish to dispute the 65,847.04 but not the £20k odd I seem to have accquired in the business account.

Think we should leave the banking issues for a few days eh?

It wouldn't surpise me if it wasn't the RBS group updating their software to Santandar's requirements.

What a bloody shambles !

Well it would appear that my mortgage has been paid off and The amount transferred to my personal account as an overdraft. The money in the business account? Well that just plain isn't mine. Oh well.

The most annoying thing about the computer saying no is that payments in and out have not happened. Like many of us I'd sooner go without food than miss a payment due to anyone so it hurts. Especially those which could affect the credit rating but we'll see if that comes home to roost.

I realise though, that the business needs a second account somewhere else. I had cheques to pay in today and had to put them into the Natwest confusion because they're in the name of the company and nowhere else will accept them. I'll be dealing with that next week.

I hope you haven't been hit by the shambles....best log on and check, if you can get in. At least you can alert people on the receiving end then.

There you go ebee, that's the third of your predicted three, so not too bad.

They are not the bank, I would recommend for a small business user. After a judge threw out a 1/4 million pound claim that arrived one christmas eve-ohh not the best Christmas ever, ESP as was opened by my wife. The original loan they tried to get from me was taken out by my parents when I was seven years old!! My parents even had a insurance policy for the loan-at the insistence of the natwest. But hay what's that the law matter to lawyers.

I`m in Gnatwest too.

If they did that to me I`d threaten to take my overdraft elsewhere, that`ll teach `em

Looking on THE REGISTER website the fiasco may have been caused by somoene in India pressing he wrong button

RBS (government owned) feel it's OK to sack their IT staff in the UK and hire some in India for a fraction of the price.

In the world of RBS / UK plc it seems fine to outsource jobs and put people on the dole in the UK and have the UK taxpayer pick up the tab for the dole money -soley to save RBS money (apparently at all costs)

Yes, but atleast the overtime paid to fix said problem would go to the UK exchequer, not abroad

Zs, open another account with natwest and put the extra cash in it. Then sit on it and see if they notice. Nice nest egg that you can always give back if they kick up a stink or your current acc goes the same amount red.

Sadly the 20k was cleared out 'manually' by the branch straight away. I'm still stuck in all this and paid in some cheques, amounting to a month's earnings on 23rd June which have still not shown up and nor has my pay from the agency. They promised me they will have it sorted by the end of the week. Shocking.

I'm not impressed. Artificially broke too, but the shoes would have been just the best ever you understand.
