Complaint / review text:
I opened a standard bank account a year ago in midrand branch, and moved all my debit orders and salaries to them, thinking it will be better on charges and interest, to my surprise, i have en counted bank charges of over R1000 in one month. Going to the beginning I noticed a number of debit orders that i did not recognize and did not authorize, realizing that its been 2 months that these debit orders have been deducting in my account, and no notice from Standard bank (sms or email) as i set my account to receive any notification on to my phone. I went to query these debit orders and cancelled them, to my surprise these debit orders are still deducting and costing me a small fortune. Till today i have paid standard bank (bank charges) R1900.28 on bank charges ONLY! In 60 days. And none of my current debit orders that i actually authorized were paid. None.
