@banks_starling looks legit
200k vs 900k
Still a TCB
yep…looks dodgy to me!
Interesting that they haven’t done more of the EU though if this were the case - Ireland’s notably missing (but I suppose could share the main @starlingbank account as both will operate with English as the main language) as is Spain, Portugal, Belgium, the Netherlands… That said, I suppose you need to start somewhere, which leads me to suspect either misdirection or that they are indeed the first countries they will target.
Still confused about Ireland though.
Might not need a separate account with separate staff from U.K. as it’s the same language. The others are not. Starling UK only there to stop someone else using the name?
That was what I was thinking. But why protect the Starling UK name, but not Starling IE?
Maybe they’re just trolling us? Or maybe it’s not Starling that registered these at all?!
Or just you know, make it so that your product is available globally and you don’t need country-specific social media accounts. Abstract away all the regulatory stuff so as far as users are concerned they’re interacting with the same entity no matter where they are.
That’s a lot easier said than done & I expect Starling may want to tweet in the local language..
I am gonna make a @StarlingBankES Twitter account
Can’t it’s been done and suspended as is the IE version lol
Lol Revolut and Emma replied in that thread
But monzo moved? Do we send cheques to a different address now?
I have been with Starling around 9 months now…
Was considering going over to Monzo but I cannot verify my phone number, very annoying
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and they’ll sort it out for you
also, love that the Monzo community uses actual emoji’s
Not just the community, support does as well
p.s. love your cat… v.cute
Sorry about that Charlie, support chat should be able to handle this. Let me know when it’s sorted!
Even MPs want Monzo & Starling to get along
A clear fintech fan I take it
Probably makes sense being the Economic Secretary to the Treasury
