New First Option On Calling Oneaccount: "0" If You Are In Financial Difficulties

Recommended Posts

hi

as title. Try it on 08456000000. You get the usual "Welcome to the one acct" then the usual options: this time the first one is: "If you are experiencing financial difficulties, press "0"" (then the other options as below)

This is new to me but I havnt called them for some months. For the previous 10 years its been Welcome and the other options - "1" for balance, "2" for account move "3" for all other...

Is this a regulation now or sign of the times?

'If you aren't going to be able to make next month's mortgage payments on your buy-to-let portfolio because you kicked out all the housing benefit claimants and haven't found enough hardworking Eastern Europeans to replace them, please press 4 to send a mentally unbalanced message directly to the Prime Minister about how he should be running the country.'

Sounds about right. The wife called about a rental that had been empty since September - stated no pets. The landlord will not budge, it's not like two cats are going to wreck the house.

I quickly came to the conclusion that the landlord doesn't want to rent the house sou, and is just sitting it for capital appreciation/monetary debasement.

Invite the LL round to where you live now to show that your cats don't trash the place. Offer a bigger deposit?

It's probably simpler than that. The landlord sees himself as a high status person and potential tenants as low status people and doesn't see why he should have to make any sort of concession to somebody below him in the social hierarchy that might possibly inconvenience him.

I cannot afford to call. I`m in financial dire straights.

That's what happens when people get cheap money for nothing :lol:
