Ombudsman, The faceless and the useless.

26 February 2014, 15:08
If our banking Ombudsman was interested in the little guy.  Interested in you and me. Then our banks would have been shut down ...Its funny that there are packs of 'clever' Atheists that choose not to believe in God , Yet believe they have an Ombudsman. A wonderful authority that will help you when the bank acts unlawfully.Its better to believe in the tooth fairy,
I ask this to all banks,
If all our fathers and their fathers trusted ABSA, NEDBANK, STANDARD BANK, FNB over the years, granted some have changed names, to keep our money.
Why has banking become more expensive each and every year?
With wonderful technology, Card swiping machines, Atms and now wonderful internet banking. Banking constantly becomes more and more expensive for you and me.
Why ?
What direct relation does the banks have to the fact that our money loses value?
Why are all the buildings that they built not paid off by now ?
How come they manage to let so much office space and banking space over ages and not achieve to have paid them off ?They run big operating accounts, They build buildings upon buildings and with who's money ?
The banking Ombudsman is a joke, a faceless non existent entity that would only consider large matters, It doesn't have the capacity or interest in small concerns.
The fact that tens of Millions of people use them, they can make trillions of small amounts and irregularities all the time. And the Ombudsman couldn't care .
I wish for this crooked worlds system to change, We need to resist the banking thievery.
I wish our banks to have much more competition, Lets allow 50 banking licenses, lets open the market in this 1 avenue.
All logic says banking should cost us a few cents per transaction, since they have billions of transactions all the time.
Yet they making many rand's on each and every transaction each and every second of every day and night.
Its crazy, 
Banking Ombudsman ? Whats that ?

OUTA on EToll Debr

I really believe Outa is "smoking something" - they are now calling EToll laws unjust and irrational, a far cry from their initial stance of lack of public involvement. Read more...
