Calling regarding my recent packaged bank account complaint. Is genuine and from HBOS (lloyds/tsb/Halifax/BOS) they\'re open 8am to 10pm so may call late. The accounts complained about are usually the ultimate reward current account, gold, silver, platinum or premier accounts. I\'m happy I answered and was able to explain my side of the story as I was awarded £5k within a few working days of me raising a complaint via a third party company :)
