If the link somehow worked the transfers later could still fail.minimalist wrote: ↑Jul 8th, 2017 7:00 pmHas anyone ever linked their Tangerine Savings with an external bank account in someone else's name?
I'm not thinking of any funny business here but just wanted to link my wife's Tangerine (with her permission, of course) with my EQ Bank account. Would this work if do they confirm that names match on both accounts somehow?
I had a pull request TNG<-EQ fail and get reversed on me. This was into a joint TNG account that I had done the same before on with a pre-existing link that was legit.
Tangerine looked into it and blamed EQ for rejecting it.
Upon further investigation at EQ, they said the PAD request had come in with someone else's name on it (Tangerine had somehow glitched and used the other name on the joint account instead of mine).
I don't have login access to this other account, and EQ is an individual account and should have no way of knowing the other name on my Tangerine account so I believe what they told me is accurate and that it was Tangerine's fault. Who knows. Maybe PADs to joint account show both names though??
In any case ... it appears that at least EQ is checking that at least PADs having matching names. Other banks and pushes may be a different story.
