I am having the worst customer services experience ever. All I want is to access my online account and there is no way of retrieving your lost password or forgotten security question online. I called the helpline, spoke with 2 ladies and after talking to them for half an hour I nearly pulled all of my hair. They could not understand a single word I was saying and even when they get my question after 5 attempts they would spend another 5 minutes just to reply. They dont even have courtesy of saying hold on, or let me check and give me a second, they would just go silent and you just wait there stupidly just to hear even yes or no.
I was finally told a password on the phone which I tried and again it was wrong and now I dont want to spend another half an hour just to get my new password.
Is there any other option than calling the helpline?
Thank you for getting back to me. Due to the nature of WebChat, customers are required to call in so that we can access their full details in order to provide support for our mobile customers. I'm sorry that this has proven inconvenient for you.
I understand your frustration at this and we do take on board your comments as we're always looking to improve the way we do things, so I would like to send the feedback you have provided to the relevant areas of the business to help improve the quality of our service. In order to do this, I will need to take more information from you.
I'll send you a private message requesting further details. Just check the envelope icon at the top right of this page.
