THOUSANDS of customers of Danske Bank are set to be denied access to their money after the bank said it was closing their current accounts from today.
The bank has confirmed that 15,000 current accounts are to be “terminated” and the majority of customers who hold these accounts have yet to shut them down and switch to a new one.
Up to 10,000 people could find their funds frozen as they have failed to set up a new account with another bank. Danske said in October that it was closing its retail operations here.
Large numbers of those who have already started the switching process are also set to be locked out of their accounts before the new accounts can be set up.
A spokeswoman for the bank said: “Yes, some will be locked out of their accounts.”
