Finnegan Responds to Viral Scotiabank Letter

Earlier today, a letter from the Scotiabank to Mesopotamia Area Representative Michael Finnegan went into wide circulation on social media, since the sixty-day notice concerned the termination of his constituency’s account.  The letter, dated January twentieth, was written by Branch Manager Erwin Arthurs and informs Finnegan that, “Scotiabank has undertaken a strategic review of its portfolio of accounts and, as a result, has decided that we will no longer be able to serve your account, based on Scotiabank’s internal policy.” The letter sparked all kinds of speculation on Facebook and we sought out the Minister of Housing after today’s Cabinet meeting to get a response.  According to Finnegan, notice has been given to all political parties with accounts at Scotiabank that the financial institution is no longer willing to service them.

“The Facebook posting, as I was told, all of them, they are misleading.  The bank sent a letter simply saying that they are not, the manager spoke to me which was Mr. Arthurs and Mr. Neal, that they were no more interested in any political accounts held by the bank.  The account at Scotiabank is not Michael Finnegan’s account, it’s U.D.P. Mesopotamia’s account and they are not interested in any political accounts.  They have sent the letter to U.D.P. Port Loyola, U.D.P. Queen Square, U.D.P. Albert, U.D.P. this, U.D.P. that and Mr. Arthurs told me that they are doing the same thing to the political accounts that are held by divisions of the People’s United Party.  It has nothing to do [with what] is on Facebook and I will sue all the blabba mouth, especially The Reporter.  They should have known better [than] twist things the way they want to twist it.”
