Ratings and Reviews
Amazing virtual bank
This bank saved my life when I moved to the UK because it gave me an instant account that I could use while I was setting up (UK banks are not the best when you need a new account quickly!). It’s worked well, and the virtual verification process they have created is pretty cool. Definitely recommend!

Always happy to have satisfied customers like you! Thank you so much!
Breaking the product promise
The app looks fine. But once you try using it to transfer money to your Monese account, the service fails to actually receive your money. After weeks of fighting with a support that was reluctant at best and ignorant towards the underlying problem, I had to give up and closed the account.
After this nightmare I wanted to have my account closed and my data deleted. After all they demand an ID photo for identification. It turns out they don’t follow European law and actually delete your data after you leave.

Hi there - so sorry to hear you've had issues with your transfer. We must point out that we comply with all the regulations in place, though, and you can always reach out to our support team to find out more about this. We've improved our services a lot since 2017, so we're here if you ever want to give us another shot! Thanks!
no support if fraud happens
I had £217 disappear from my account. when I disputed it, they didnt even investigate it but told me it must have been me as they sent a text to confirm, they didnt send anything to me, yet when i asked where they sent it they go quiet and they cant confirm anything !! it was an airline ticket, i called the airline they cant give me any details as i cant confirm the travellets name and email/ phone i cant confirm , MONESE is not recommended , the service is very poor and unlike most banks they refuse to help and prefer to blame the victim.... stay away guys!!
