Protestors Outside Barclays Bank

Recommended Posts

Can't see that it's been posted previously.

This was on the local news at lunchtime - people complaining about the investment advice given at the bank - one chap interviewed had STR'd and invested £300k, the value of the investment went down to £150k, and is currently standing at £180k...

I particarly enjoyed the young girl with a poster saying "Barclays robbed my Grandma"

I'm afraid I grew up in that part of the world so, yes. They are old country folk and tend to believe spiv types in banks with a nice suit and a firm handshake.

Yes, it's for real. It's had previous publicity, but this is the first time I've seen protestors...

Barclays Investment Victims Club website

This Is Money article

Money Marketing article

They took advice from Barclays Investments, wanted something low risk, invested as per recommendations, and then lost a whole stash. It turns out that due to a "procedural error" some investment vehicles were mis-categorised, and as such, risky investments were billed as safe ones... People are narked, and are trying to push for an FSA investigation.

I was just impressed that someone was standing around waving banners in this country - it so rarely happens nowadays.
