Default Bank Statement Worries

Hi all,

I was hoping you'd be able to advise me on what you'd do in this situation.

3.3.4. Bank statements must be on official bank stationery. Alternatively, electronic bank
statements can also be accepted for all bank accounts (the account itself does not have
to be exclusively online) as long as they are either accompanied by a letter from the
bank on its headed stationery confirming that the documents are authentic or which bear
the official stamp of the issuing bank on every page.

I bank with Nationwide and, like most people, have online statements only. I called them up to request my past statements to be printed and sent through. What they have sent through are black and white printouts of my statements which I've cross referenced with my online statements and are completely identical, down to the coding at the bottom of the pages. For all immigration would see, it looks like I've just printed them myself.

The statements were accompanied by a headed letter saying, 'thank you for your recent contact requesting duplicate documents.' In my mind this is what confirms they were officially sent by the bank, but now I'm concerned that the wording 'duplicate' that they've used in the letter implies they're not original... but there never were other printed copies!

Forgive me if you think I'm overthinking this but I'm kinda freaking out about it!

Thank you!

I did a similar thing a couple of years ago for my wife's flr(m) when I needed some old savings account statements from Nationwide, as the bank does not issues statements for savings accounts, only current accounts.

What they sent me was a B&W computer printout of the last 12 months transactions on a couple of sheets of paper, together with a letter saying they were duplicates. All the info was there (account number, etc that you would get on a normal statement), just looked unprofessional.

So to be safe I took them into the bank and got them to stamp and sign each page to authenticate them, which they were more than happy to do. To cut a long story short, submitted them and had no problem at all.
