Trouble opening bank account after discharge
November 10th, 2005 by Questions
I have been recently discharged after bankruptcy. I went today to open a chequing account at a credit union and was refused based on the credit rating even though I make a really good salary. She said if they bent the rules, I could possibly get an account but they would not give me an ABM card for at least 6 months but they still wouldn’t do it! Can they do this? She suggested I find a bank that doesn’t do credit checks.
Do you have any suggestions – filing a complaint against a bank in which I would like to deal with in the future I don’t think is wise.
