Banca March

Post by Shuggie » November 21st, 2019, 11:01 pm

I was in Banca March in Es Castell on Tuesday and discovered they are closing this branch and Sant Lluis on 20th December. All business is being transferred to the Mahon branch......well pissed off, might just change bank.

Enough is enough. Es Castell has closed and the cash point has gone, same in Sant Lluis. I went to the cash point at the out of town Banca March in Mahon on Thursday and the machine was out of order. So I went to Santander and the withdrawal cost me €2. Yesterday I had € 5 in my pocket and was going out to lunch. I went to the cash point at the top of Cala Fons, which is Banca March, out of order :twisted: Today I went into Mahon and the Banca March cash point in the old fruit market was out of order. So I went into the main Banca March in Mahon today and lost it....told them I was closing my account as I can’t withdraw money for free.......unbelievable they agreed it was the best thing I could do. Adios Banca March !!!!

That's a shame Shuggie, and as I am a retired senior Banker, I personally would either call or write in strong terms to the following:-

Customer Service Department

Mrs. María del Mar Mainzer Estarellas.
Address: Av. Alexandre Rosselló nº8 (07002 – Palma de Mallorca)
Email: atencion_cliente@bancamarch.es
Catalonia Region Customers: 900 102 132

Ombudsman

Mr. José Luis Gómez-Dégano y Ceballos-Zúñiga
Domicilio: C/ Raimundo Fernández Villaverde, 61, 8ª Derecha (28003 – Madrid)
Apartado de Correos 14019, (28080 – Madrid)
Email: oficina@defensorcliente.es

Hope this helps, but this seems very similar to the attitude of UK Banks as well. :evil:

This is a shame to read. When I first bought my property in 2016 I was introduced to BM and Sylvia has always been helpful, efficient and friendly. I rarely use an ATM as I do most payments on my BM Debit Card or Caxton. I only hope that there is not something more alarming going on! Feliz Navidad!
