Absolute joke DO NOT DOWNLOAD AND SIGN UP

So i opened this bank in may all went well for the first week until my partner sent £1100 to my bank so i could purchase a motorbike which i understood was a lot and could look dodgy as i was a new “customer” they blocked my account then emailed me asking for proof of where the money had come from which i sent they then asked for proof of purchase for the motorbike which obviously having a blocked account i couldnt because i couldnt use the money as to which they closed my account down and said the money would be back into my partners account (the source) within 2-3 months !! MONTHS !! anyways after numerous emails and being passed to 10 different customer support agents i still havnt got my account back neither has my partner had to money back into her account they are absolutely diabolical and highly recommend not to download and sign up as they are money grabbing scamming useless people i dont know how they call themselves a bank for the people !!!

Thank you for your review! We'd like to share that in some situations our team is required to conduct security checks and request more information regarding a Novus account. We have to proceed to close an account if its activities breach our terms of use. You can find more information in our article here: https://intercom.help/novus-5d999cc26373/en/articles/6340740 🙌

We always return the funds back to their source as soon as we are legally able to and we never keep any amount for longer than necessary. Rest assured that any remaining funds are held securely within your account and we will contact you the moment they are released! Thank you for understanding 🙏 We are sorry that Novus wasn't a good fit and we hope that you will find a financial service that works the best with your needs! We wish you a great day 💕

Seems like a girl on her period! Just snaps out of nothing

How can one use the app, and the next morning this “As a financial services firm, we need to continuously monitor our customer's accounts and review this against how we expect the product should be used. Unfortunately, your usage of the Novus Service is not in line with our terms, so we have decided to cancel your Novus Service.
You will no longer be able to use your Novus Card or send and receive funds into your Novus account. If you have any upcoming payments, we recommend making alternative arrangements.

Any remaining funds in your account are currently being held and will be returned back to the original source in due course. Once the funds are released, you will be notified.

Unfortunately, our Customer experience team will be unable to assist you with any further questions.” The audacity of telling me I can’t contact customer care for help is fascinating. And you’ll keep money money for 4-6 weeks and make loads of gain before returning it to “the original source”. I don’t mind you sending the money back to where it came from but how the hell does it take 4-6 weeks! I strongly advise no one should use this cause if the funds was meant for something urgent and important they wouldn’t care! 0 stars

Hey there 👋 We are sorry to hear your Novus account was closed. We'd like to note that as a certified financial service, we are required to terminate any account if its activities breach our terms of use. We always return all remaining funds back to their source as quickly as possible. We are legally obliged to follow all regulatory processes regarding the return of the funds and therefore it may take some time before they are transferred back accordingly. Of course, you will be notified via email once everything is finalised on our end 🙌 We assure you that we never keep or use your funds for any gains of our own. You can find some more information on this in our article here: https://intercom.help/novus-5d999cc26373/en/articles/6340740. Thank you for your understanding! Hope you have a great day 💕
