Hi there I am very disappointed and indeed shocked to read this review.

We regularly review the market to ensure our charges are low. We do pass on our bank’s charge for making international payments as this is the Banks charge not ours. I am also upse ...

Unfortunately, it appears that all contact I have tried to make so far about resolving a complaint have been ignored, to staff at the high street kensington office and head office. Couldn't seem to reach anyone by phone either. ...
