I recently turned 16 and i wanted to open a monzo account as in late 2019 and early 2020 i was involved in fraud. I applied to open a monzo account as i heard that they accept people even if they have cifas markers. Well i was denied from a monzo account and was wondering what other options do i have in terms of bank accounts that i can open
If you have a search, it is covered a lot
I have a cifas marker on my name and before anyone lectures me i don’t need a lecture, i was told by the bank who put the marker on I should have no issue opening an account else where but can’t seem to get one anywhere and every time i’ve applied for monzo or tried to speak to someone i’ve been told my old account can not be reopened (i closed this myswlf due to not needing it anymore at the time) but now i’m left with no bank account and have no idea what to do. I’m struggling to get my bills …

Hi,i allowed my “friend” to do fraud on my account which was a very very dumb decision. I wanted the money to help out my mum as she has been struggling in lockdown since she has her own business.

Cat 6 CIFAS Marker
I’m really hoping Monzo can help me out here. I’m so worried I’ve messed up my life by doing something so stupid because I was intimidated at school and was too weak and naive to stand up to these thugs when I was 16. I’ve made a really stupid mistake which could seriously mess up my education and life because I cant get a job or apply for a grant because I need an account in my name. I’ve just started college to study engineering and want to go to Uni, but I can’t do that wi…
Most likely the cifas is the reason you was denied.
We are just a community
You’ll have to email monzo although since they said no they’ll only change their minds in extremely rare occasions such as it was an error on their since which most likely wasn’t the reason
Sadly most British banks don’t like cifas markers - if you’re desperate for monzo you’ll need to re apply the in future
Hi, if an account is closed or blocked, does that mean that I am not able to use Monzo anymore?
Depends on the reason it was closed but generally, yes.
An account at your local Credit Union is likely to be an option for a small monthly fee. When your situation gets better you’ll at least me able to find other accounts available to you.
