A mis-sold packaged bank account is a type of bank account that includes various benefits and perks, such as insurance products, for which the customer pays a monthly fee. It’s considered mis-sold when the account was not suitable for the customer’s needs, they were not properly informed about the costs and features, or they were pressured into purchasing the account.

You may have been mis-sold a packaged bank account if you were not made aware of the fees and charges, if the account was unsuitable for your needs, if you were pressured into taking it, or if you were not eligible for the benefits included.

Common signs include not being informed about the fees, being misled about the benefits, being pressured into taking the account, or being ineligible for the included benefits.

Hidden fees, excessive charges, or charges for benefits you didn’t need or weren’t eligible for could indicate mis-selling.

Benefits can vary but often include travel insurance, mobile phone insurance, breakdown cover, and preferential rates on other financial products.

By understanding the signs of mis-selling and the process for making a claim, individuals can assert their rights and hold banks accountable for their actions.
