Spar retailer Asif Mahmood, from Dunfermline, is looking for feedback. He fancies the deal being offered by ATM company Hanco of an RBS machine with a service that is free to customers, fully maintained and with good commission.
Hanco is a big company. I've never heard ill of it. RBS is a ruddy great bank (I've heard ill of all banks, so much of a muchness there). But there's one sour note.
Asif asked Hanco if it could provide him with some retailer testimonials and it pleaded the Data Protection Act. Fair enough, but you know, if companies want to, they can ask their satisfied retail customers if it is okay to hand on recommendations to others.
