"I will close my First Direct Bank account on 1st February 2007 unless they reverse their decision to charge customers with a balance below £1500 but only if 200 other people will do the same."

First Direct Bank have announced plans to charge £10 per month to customers who can't afford to hold, or deposit, £1500 each month into their accounts.
I have been a loyal First Direct customer for 13 years and have found their customer service second to none, recommending them widely to family and friends.
However I find this decision high-handed and absolutely wrong. There has been no consultation with customers about this and after all it is OUR money they are building their business on.
Sign the pledge and demonstrate the strength of feeling there is about this and, if they still won't listen, let's show them exactly how we feel by acting together on the 1st February 2007.
