Public Phone Booth

Someone is for the high-jump!

The Daily Mirror reports that a furious customer was locked inside a Natwest branch for an hour and a half Monday night after being left in a side room while the bank closed.

Natwest has launched an investigation after the customer popped in just before 5pm to make an enquiry about her account.

The manager of the branch in Waterloo, central London, let the woman phone the bank’s central customer services department in a quiet side room.

But after being kept on hold, the customer went to alert the manager that she hadn’t been able to get through, only to find she was all alone in a locked bank.

The woman, who has asked to remain anonymous, said: 'I was calling out when I noticed the alarms were going off.

'I thought to myself, ‘What’s going on ?’

Finally, The Charlotte Observer reports that a Davidson man alleges in a lawsuit that Wells Fargo repeatedly called his cellphone seeking payment on a home loan even though the man had no relationship with the bank.

Dominic Maier began receiving calls in November from the bank that were made by an automatic dialing system, the lawsuit states. His attorney, Ruth Allen, described them as collections calls.

Maier claims in the lawsuit he does not have any accounts with Wells Fargo or any known way for the bank to have his number. Still, Maier received between 40 and 60 calls, Allen said. They kept coming even after Maier signed up for the National Do Not Call Registry and told Wells Fargo to stop calling.
