My mother decided she'd had enough of the Northern Rock uncertainty so she wrote to them requesting her money back. By return of post she received a letter from them asking her when she'd changed her signature and demanding to see something else with her signature on. She searched through her bureau and came across two pink forms both with her signature on. The first was certifying that the rat catcher had put poison down round her patio and the other was stating that the gas man had condemned her gas fire! I can only presume that the staff at the Northern Rock thought that here was some batty old millionairess who lived in a freezing cold flat surrounded by rats, because her cheque arrived the following day!
