At last we have a 20 euro credit in our account called Rembours Titres Divers Rachat Titres Divers. That could be it.
I sent a written letter last week marked urgent asking them to close because they continued to take out 7euro+ each month.
They're probably all on holiday until Sept.

I have been in and opened the social account, its a maximum of €7K and not €7.7k like I thought, its shown as a DAV PEA and the latter is a plan d"epargne actionnaire I reckon, it does not show amongst my list of accounts where the other savings accounts (LDD Livret A) and current account is but its seperately listed under Mon Epargne so it would be very easy to forget in the fullness of time if €7k is small beer to you :D - Something to watch out for.

Transferred all the prélévements etc back to CA from the CIC under the Loi Macron, 2nd time I have done this and its better this time round, they have to send you a list of all the prélévements and virements who they have contacted, they in turn must/should/cant be ar5ed to contact me saying when they will take the last payment from the old account and the first from the new, one or two have indeed done so but the majority have ignored their obligations and who can blame them!

Its going through right now, some have already been deducted from the CA, the wheels fell off with one, Freemobile e-mailed and texted me to say that a prélévement of €1.56 had been refused and they would cut the phone off if I didnt pay tout de suite by carte bancaire which i did, confusingly they had my new account listed so I wondered if the CA had refused it, the next day it was withdrawn from the CA so they owe me €1.56 and I am not going to bother with the hassle of chasing a de minimus amount, the bill was only €1.11 or something so they have put on a tiny admin charge, I expect all the others to go through OK, if not then I get to see my lovely running team-mate in her business suit again :good:

To anyone feeling ripped off or unstaisfied with their banque it is now so easy to change thanks to Macron that you really deserve the treatment if you stay.

La Banque Postale finally said that they would repay me the €525 I am out from the cheque they lost 8 months before, if I still wanted to continue with the claim if? :shock: do they think I am French or something, sent message via the web portal so that there is proof of reciept and they have promptly ingored it for the summer, any other message sent gets and automatic we will deal with this under the briefest delai, this one nothing, its going to be a year before winning from them, its already been over a year fighting with URRSAF/ the Secu to get health coverage that I have been paying for since 2016. Things move slowly in France and not at all in July and August, I bet Mike is still washing his dishes by hand come la rentrée scholaire :lol:

:D That really is useful to know. For a long while we've been thinking of changing from our conventional bank to an online one. Both laziness and fear of all the supposed hassle has held us back but now is perhaps the time to take the plunge.

We had a phone call from them about an hour ago, so they'd read my letter. will close the account and send credit to our UK account.
I can't really complain about the service at our branch, they were always friendly and efficient.
They even helped me by putting a dressing on a knee wound when I tripped and fell from the pavement nearby (no I hadn't been drinking!)

France is a socialist country.
Wish England was.
:lol: France is a bureaucratic country but that doesn't necessarily mean it's a socialist country, although the two are often considered to be synonymous. According to an opinion poll in May, poor Olivier Faure is only seen as the best contender in the next presidential election by a mere 9% of French electors.

I would be very careful too in wishing for a socialist Britain whilst the Labour Party is led by JC. Should he be elected the Pound would crash and burn.

:D However, if Chuka Umunna were in charge he would definitely get my vote... if only I had one.
After Brexit a weak pound will be vital for the British economy. If your theory is correct that’s yet another reason to get rid of the Conservative Party.
