We want to start a couple of cash ISAs and an accompanying savings account. We don't want to borrow any money, we don't want a chequebook or cash card. We want to save some money. Today we went into Abbey and Halifax to open these accounts, ready with chequebook to pay in some money. Could we open an account? Could we ********! Because neither of us have current passports or driving lisenses (one is lost and the other has our old address on it), they couldn't take our money. Pathetic.
