As the impact of the Coronavirus is felt across the world we understand that recent developments will be concerning for many people and causing disruption to your daily lives and travel. 

BLME has been closely monitoring the situation and is following the advice of the UK authorities as new information is made available. We are committed to the health and well-being of our staff, clients and community and, with this in mind, we have made the decision to have staff work remotely.

We have closed our general and savings telephone lines however you can still email BLME at and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We have set up and tested remote working facilities so the impact on service will be minimal, however we ask for understanding as we transition to this new working environment.  

Your BLME contact point remains the same and if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to get in touch. We will continue to monitor the situation as it develops and take the appropriate action as necessary.


Increased fraud risk 

Some criminals are using the current uncertainty caused by the coronavirus as an opportunity to commit fraud. This includes offering guidance or a safe haven for moneys to trick people into sharing personal or financial information. Please be extra vigilant and always double check any contact using trusted sources. BLME will never ask you to move money to a safe account or for your card PIN or CCV number.
