Rip-off NI: Banking cartel costing us millions…

THE four big banks in NI – the Bank of Ireland, First Trust, Northern Bank and Ulster Bank – are ripping its customers off, according to consumer watchdog Which? In some instances we are being charged 21 times what a GB customer is charged. Time to switch banks…

Phil Evans, principal policy adviser for Which?, said: “Bank customers in Northern Ireland are being ripped off.

“The big four in Northern Ireland are all offering similarly inferior products, leaving their customers with little choice, indeed a choice between who will rip them off the least.”
