A few weeks ago I got up the courage to make a complaint to a National bank about the way I was sold one of those £10 a month accounts years ago. It was very traumatic for me at the time and ultimately led to my decision to pay off all debts in my life and never use a mainstream "bank" again. After a long of phone call they agreed some compensation and sent a letter to their branch in town for collection.
Of course, that morning I missed the early bus and decided to use the ten minutes wait filling in prize coupons in the local free newspaper and cutting them out. The route to the bank passed the newspaper office and I left them in the box there.
At the bank the letter was astonishing - over £1000 !!!
This morning the phone rang and I had one first prize!!! I would have been happy with the hamper of meat or the patio set which were on offer but my first prize is a meal for 2 at the Michelin star restaurant and tickets to a concert in the nearby concert hall (worth £47.50 each).
Leaves you wondering if that was the day I should have brought a lottery ticket??
