Barclays customers cut up credit cards
Barclays Bank customers have highlighted their opposition to the firm by cutting up their cards outside the Royal Festival Hall.
This occurred on April 27th as shareholders for the firm met for the lender's annual general meeting and the protest formed part of the ppi UK initiative.
People were fed up with credit card charges, loan claims and other expenses incurred on them by the financial institution and so transferred their funds to another company.
Move Your Money UK spokesman Marloes Nicholls said they are "making sure it's not back to 'business as usual' for the bank".
Instead, these ex-customers will be "supporting financial institutions whose business practices and values they share", he added.
Sara Petrai, who took part in the Barclaycard-destroying event and has transferred her cash, claimed Barclay's service is "terrible".
Some of the bank charges they levy are "totally unfair", she remarked.
This is not the only problem Barclays has recently faced, as it has had to set aside £1.6 billion to cope with payment protection insurance refunds.
