If you live in the Netherlands you will probably need a bank account. There are many different banks which offer a variety of services. Huge banks like Rabobank, ABN-Amro and ING bank just offer everything. Special banks like Van Lanschot are more focussed on the wealthy customer.
Below we put links to most of the (important) Dutch banks. The first sites are in English, the other only in Dutch. When possible we give a short explanation about the bank.
We have to warn you for an important issue. Often scam mails refer to Dutch banks where people can claim their prize. These banks have strange names not familiar in the Netherlands. Dutch banks are not involved with giving away prizes. So if you get an email referring to a bank in the Netherlands whose name you don't see below then you can assume that the email is fake.
