On June 9 , 2012 You confirmed that the Santander Bank was a solid bank in the U.K. I had made a deposit of 2500 british pounds ( $4,200 U.S. dollars) to the bank as an initial mimimum amount to establish an account with the Santander Bank ( via wire transfer dated
May 25, 2012) . I was later informed that I was required to upgrade my account to "Plainum" staus for an additional fee ( 800 british pounds ) and that I had to do so within 2 weeks or my initial deposit would be forfeited (lost) .
Can the Santander Bank do this and is there any way to to reclaim my deosit of 2,500 pounds ($4,200 U.S.D. ) ?
Santander Bank is a reputable international banking corporation. This is not to say they do not have fees or account rules which people need to review before opening accounts there. You would have to review your account holder agreement with the bank to determine why the Platinum account is required and what your rights are under the account and the rights are a contractual matter as to whether they can close the account.

You can file to withdraw the money you deposited from the account and that also is within the terms of the account agreement for that account.
