Had an email from FI requesting proof of id, address, job title and Bank details.
Quite invasive and I'm always sceptical of any emails requesting personal/confidential information.
I've been on FI since Jan and put in a decent amount without queries.
Have other users received said email previously?
THey shouldn't be asking bank details, no way.
@Dronny-Gaz I got the same thing today and called them and it seems legit as they don't ask for full bank details and the rest is just proof of identity and address
@Jad1982 thanks. I will give them a ring too.
Looked genuine, but you can never be too careful. Too many dodgy b######s out there!
@Dronny-Gaz are you sure it didn't say bank card details??
@Andy-M It was card details, with the advice that I black out certain numbers. Wanted scanned evidence of both sides of card.
The majority of users that have been here for a while have had to go through the ball-ache of these checks.
As frustrating as it seems. They are absolutely necessary and prevent money laundering etc etc ...
Just check it all seems legit. As we all know there will be wankers out there that will try and take advantage of any situation. 👍
From memory, I believe the email address that contacted me was
Hope that helps.
Cheers lads. Much appreciated.
from previous personal experience, this is a standard check most FSA regulated companies undertake and yes i had to do the same with FI - but always worth double checking by contact FI directly.....ATB
