Bully Boy Banks I have been a victim too!!
Are you being bullied by your bank? Well it would seem you are not alone. According to an article in The Independent today by Charlie Weston banks are trying to set spending levels for their customers who happen to be in trouble with their mortgages.
Like every bully when allowed to carry on their oppressive and aggressive tactics they will thrive. They pray on the weak and vulnerable who feel they have not got the position of strength to stand up to the bully. The bully will pray on this perceived position of weakness and will push to endless limits with sometimes fatal consequences.
I am afraid to say I have myself been the subject of such bullying from the very same banks who I challenge on behalf of our clients every day. I say “I am afraid to say” because I know now the only day to deal with them is to stand up to them, bully them back, tell them to get lost and take control back by telling them what you are prepared to do rather then what they want.
My personal experience has thought me a great lesson in dealing with the bully and how to overcome their oppression. They hate anyone who will stand up to them. When your weakness becomes your strength they run, they become passive and simply skulk off looking for another victim.
Banks are no different, stand up to them, push back and they will back down. So do not let them tell you what you can spend, who you can pay, where you can live. These are your choices and for you to decide. The bank only have their interests at heart, you however, have to consider your family, your future, your health and your future financial security. The path you take should be with these in mind and not what he Bank considers you should do.
So do not let the bully have its way. Stand strong because it is your life and your family.
They are being taken on and people are winning so become a winner today!
