Lloyds TSB International rejects Polish residents

Dear Varsovian

Thank you for your recent application to open an account with Lloyds TSB International.

Unfortunately we are unable to proceed with the opening of an account for you at this time as our banking licence restricts the opening of new accounts for customers that reside in Poland.

Please do not hesitate to contact Lloyds TSB International in the future should your circumstances change.

Yours Sincerely

LYHFTDF XYZ | Online Sales Advisor | Core Banking - International Personal Banking

And yet their eligibility said EEA residents ...

our banking licence restricts

...is the key phrase.

Do you want them to break the law just for you?

Jon's obviously got out of bed on the wrong side and has decided to bite anyone he talks to.

Their website says it's open to EEA residents. I could list the countries in the EEA for you, if you wish.

Really. So you don't understand what a banking licence is?

So, you really don't know that a bank should put full and truthful eligibility requirements on its account information? Mind you, it might look a bit funny if it said "Open to EEA residents except if resident in Poland".

Nah, he just doesn't understand, it's not the first time when he didn't get something...

The decision rests with the Polish banking regulator.

The law's the law and a website's just a website. It wouldn't be the first time one country's regulatory rules are in conflict with a company's policy.

I really don't know why you'd bother posting about it. Either open the account from a UK address or use another bank - there are plenty to choose from.
