My answer: lol
they have a picture of a sandwich maker in the window of one of their branches, which is presumably a free gift, persuasive stuff.
What's not to trust??
i trust them....i'm on my way to get my instant mastercard
"Our growth strategy begins with four stores in Holborn, Earl's Court, Fulham and Borehamwood."
I LIKE THEIR USE OF CAPS AND IMPACT FONT
why they feel Borehamwood is a key place for a new bank's growth strategy. Although if they can convince the petshop next door not to close the door in my face BEFORE CLOSING TIME and laugh at me then I'd be much obliged.
FREE DOG TREATS!
* - not strictly true.
reminded me of the scene in waynes world when they get Noah Vanderhoff to go on the show.
Sounds like the kind of thing a mob in the Simpsons would shout
"No stupid bank rules!!!"
giggling like a fool as I can't not hear it in the voice of Matt Berry
I am hearing that now.
of Carpet world warehouse MADSALEEVERYTHINGMUSTGO!. Except instead of buying a shit carpet with a pile the thickness of toilet paper, you lose all your savings when metrobank invest in a "fantastic dog biscuit opportunity".
looks like site for playing bingo.
I didn't expect a website like that though, they look like they should be advertising their services on daytime satellite channels.
I could get on board with this.
but I like my banks to be formal and stuffy. Wood pannelling, marble and if possible a bronze bust.
I hate it when staff in my bank where promo tshirts. Give the chashier a cotton tshirt and they see it as carte blanche to piss about.
However, I am a big fan of dogs.
And I like the 'hello matron' expression as seen in the preview frame of the youtube vid. https://www.metrobankonline.co.uk/Community-box-pages/Magic-Money-Machine/
In mitigation, I'll never trust a bank that offers to "turn coins into cash" the same way I'd never trust anyone who offered to turn 'bread into food' or 'pencils into stationary'.
Their female staff appear to wear ballroom gowns to work
It gets better
I hear that if you default on your mortgage they turn up at your house in a car which backfires and with doors that fall off, they throw a bucket of confetti at you and then auction all of your posessions off, whilst taking your house keys and changing the locks
I thought it was owned by the Metro newspapers from the look of it.
Maybe it is...
But the footer says not.
It was supposed to open ages ago wasn't it?

I can't remember who but he was on Radio 4 the other morning.
Some ex-Lloyds guy, I think. He went on with some rubbish about it being like a Captain Mainwaring family bank or something...
But you were definitely listening to Radio 4 right? I mean that's important.
as that would me a ten-second soundbyte that could have referred to ANYTHING. It's important to make it clear this was a REAL NEWS item.
probably the Today programme?
Tramps and lunatics.
That money machine is a superb idea though.
