Internet banking American style
My head hurts. I am getting confused by US healthcare and I haven't even got a doctor yet. And now I'm trying to set up a standing order to pay my landlord our rent direct into her bank account. Except online personal banking won't let me. Their idea of electronic online bill pay is for me to give them the name and address of my landlord and they will send her a cheque by post. The bank thinks this is a great idea, they even have a step by step video showing me how to set it up. Perhaps there is some legal reason why I'm not allowed to deposit money into her account directly, but if there is, it's daft. And if there isn't, please would someone at the US part of this supposedly international bank, talk to someone at the UK version and realize that there is an easier way.
