This is SERIOUS and more than urgent.
This if true is really big fu.k up by Tide !!!
From the mrbounceback:
URGENT – Today I want everyone who was on the Tide waiting list who are now applying to other banks to immediately get in touch with Tide, if you do want to get a Bounce Back Loan with another lender such as Yorkshire Bank or Clydesdale Bank and get yourself removed from that list.
Why am I saying this? Well yesterday I was contacted by many DM’ers on Twitter from ex-Tiders who have applied for a Bounce Back Loan with Clydesdale then been approved for a loan with them but just before payment they get declined, and the reason given is that they have a loan or have applied for a Bounce Back Loan with a different lender, that being Tide.
Here are a few of those messages, one from a DM’er telling me of their situation one from Clydesdale explaining the problem and one from a DM’er telling (in no uncertain terms) Tide to remove them from their list to clear the way of them to get a BBL.
If you are declined by any bank who say you have a BBL or have applied with Tide and you have no such loan and/or have removed yourself from their list, show them proof you have, I.E. any messages/emails from you to/from Tide confirming you have been removed from that list. They should then process your loan payment.
If however you believe that Tide are going to pull out a stash of cash one day soon and will start lending again then you should stay on their waiting list.
Why Tide have been logging those who only “registered an interest” (as there were never any guarantees of a loan with them by adding their name on that waiting list as has now been proven beyond any doubt) with them for a Bounce Back Loan on the British Business Bank system remains to be seen. I will leave that to the conspiracy theorists out there. But if it walks like a duck, smells like a duck and makes a noise like a duck its usually a duck.
