Barclays Bank PLC

I have been a Barclays customer for 16 years both personally and as a business.  In light of the seemingly never ending exposures of mal-practice and dishonesty I am minded to move my accounts elsewhere.  This would be a shame as, save for a week or so during the recent upgrade, Barclays online banking is a pleasure to use and I have a good relationship with the staff at my local branch.

I feel very uncomfortable being associated with a bank that has been exposed for fraudulent conduct and have always believed that trust, once lost, is gone forever.  And I’m mindful that if it were I that had been exposed in this manner the bank would drop me like a stone, not to mention its reporting obligation.  As a side issue how can it still be consider ‘fit & proper’ for AML purposes?

I would be interested to know if others feel that to move bank accounts would be an over-reaction to the current circumstances.
