Tried this today lol. Tried 4 banks, all want an ACR card.

With any of those banks, did you go to the manager and say "My friend XXX has an account here and he suggested I come and talk to you about getting an account here my own self"

Or did you just go to one of the lackeys who will always say no.

He also said he had no proof of address. With no ACR or proof of address it might be a tough go. You can't just show up with cash in your wallet and a long nose and expect an account - OK, on 2nd thought maybe you can!

It depends on the bank. The manager and if his wife has upset him or her that morning :smile:
