A BRITISH expat is up in arms after his bank froze his account to incoming money for no good reason.
Glenn Cruickshank, 55, a retired financial software expert, had his Unicaja account in Nerja frozen for seven weeks due to new regulations.
He insisted that this was despite providing the bank with all the information it asked for.
“I have emailed them my bank statements showing the capital and interest we earn,” said Cruickshank, whose sole income is the interest from his savings.
“I’ve given them everything they have asked for but they just don’t reply,” said Cruickshank.
“They have treated me with no respect.”
Unicaja insisted the move came because of new regulations forcing banks to have clear information on the exact economic activities
of their clients.
A spokesman was unable to explain why it had taken so long to reply to Cruikshank.
He said: “We cannot provide personal information about our clients.”
