I keep seeing an ad on Facebook for a page called “Sandra’s Tips”:
From the ad, it implies it’s some sort of article about the top “smart” current accounts.
Clicking “Learn More” or the link in the post takes you to this page:
The “Current Account Checker” then asks a variety of questions, before supposedly calculating which account is the most appropriate. No matter which options I pick (I’ve tried several variations), this screen appears:
Basically, it seems like this is either some Guerilla marketing from ThinkMoney, or someone spamming their referral link through Facebook (doesn’t look like that to me though…). Either way, using the (almost) hot coral card in the ad, and the Monzo logo on the “Current Account Checker” page doesn’t seem right to me. Indeed, in the comments on the Facebook ad some people have tagged their friends saying “this is the bank account I was telling you about” etc.
Should someone from Monzo intervene? Maybe @simonb you can shed a bit more light on the legalities of this?
