WA. Bankwest has quoted 4.48% for a 4 months term deposit.

Customer Question
WA. Bankwest has quoted...

WA. Bankwest has quoted 4.48% for a 4 months term deposit. Despite this appearing to be a very good rate we accepted this some 3 weeks after the offer which stated that this amongst other rates were held for the date of offer only. Subsequently we emailed Bankwest accepting their offer they responded saying that they would action the new TD's on 13/11/17 when due. They them reemailed saying that they made a mistake and reduced the rate offering part compensation which is below the actual interest which wpould have been received if the original offer was honoured. Would the Financial Ombudsman deal with this and in your opinion would he rule in our favour?

Lawyer's Assistant: Was this discussed with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?

Manager and subordinates. The manager received my email with the details showing the 4.48% TD for 4 months and his words in email response was " Hi Joe .Thank you for your email. Our support team will
reinvest the term deposits as requested upon maturity on 13/11/2017" email ID assistant relationship manager.

Lawyer's Assistant: Are you an "at will" employee? Do you belong to a union?

No private small business and client of Bankwest.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Another email arrived from Joe Emmens Bankwest Regional Manager Business Banking stating " Hi Joe All received . I will have this actioned. "
