Frustrating incompetence of your staff

I have recently changed my name and now have a major issue with your "specialists" unable to correctly read the Change of Name Certificate issued by authorities and update my name on the bank accounts. I've been offered to close my existing business accounts and open new ones, which is a real pain for the existing business as you can imagine.


I have changed my name across 30+ organisations without a single problem. 


I'm asking myself - why should I re-open account with Bankwest in this situation? To once again deal with your blatant incompetence? I'd rather open accounts with another bank.
