Bank bansyicarts sonfor life for going llp oYerdrawn by Geoff Maynard Bank chiefs have banned a schoolboy for life because his account went 11 pence into the red. Vicar's son Jerome Jacob, 15.was told he could never have another account at HSBC, despiteoffering to repay the money. Jerome, who holds down two part-time jobs in between studying for his GCSEs, went ovordrawn when he bought a football magazine using his debit card. After receiving a monthly statement, Jerome and his father, the Reverend Neville Jacob, went into their local branch in Romsey. Hampshire, to clear the debt. But they were amazed when staff told them the account had been closed and they could not open a now one. Jeromesaid: "Their customer service was awful. When I openedthe account, they told me it would be impossible to go overdrawn when using my card." Mr Jacob, vicar of Copthorne, Hampshire, added: "We don't fault the bank for applying its rules. All we wanted was a bit of common sense.'o "My son was willing to repay the 1lp and apologise,but they just were not interested.It was a flat refusal. My son was quite upset." oolt's the first time he has gone overdrawn and I'm astonished at their attitude. To say he can never go back is ridiculous and the way he was treated was outrageous. If they treated adults this way, they would soon be out of business." A spokesmanfor HSBC said: "This does not appear to be in line with our commitment to our customers. Being overdrawn by llp would not trigger the decision to close the account and we will be investigating this incident." Jerome,who doesapaperround and works part-time in a tea room, has now applied for a Barclays account.
