Absolutely Horrid Customer Service

Absolutely horrid customer service, don't help and constantly closing complaints saying it's resolved when hasn't been. Will not answer my questions, just ignore them with sorry no explanation. It's been 4 weeks and still trying to get answers, just brushed off constantly, when you call they tell you to wait for email reply which you either don't get or if you do its weeks later with resolved sorry. NOT RESOLVED, TREATED DISGUSTINGLY, IGNORED, MIGHT AS WELL JUST PUSH ME UNDER A BUS WASTE OF TIME AVOID AVOID AVOID. Close your account without warning without actually good reason, it took them 3 weeks actually tell me they closed my account, closed my partner's as well for no reason at all and when I tried to speak to prove with screenshots that they closed my account and partner's for no reason, they just say sorry or try to tell me my complaint is resolved, far from it, I wouldn't be surprised if it's just a robot no actual humans how poor the customer service is, can not answer any my actual questions, made my life such HARD work and actually lost money now ?????

Thanks for leaving a review Keeley. Sorry to hear you didn't receive the service you expected from Monese. We hope that your situation can be resolved and that Monese gives you some clarification as to why they closed your accounts.





Avoid At All Costs

I've been a customer for nearly two years: the service has been terrible. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. A year ago, they kept nearly £6000 of my money and didn't transfer it to my account for 6 weeks. This caused me severe financial issues. In addition, 6 weeks ago, they suspended my account saying they needed some identity and address information. I supplied that information (the same information used to open my account) got no reply for 6 weeks and now they say they are closing my account ! Good riddance to bad rubbish...a terrible "bank".
