Aldermore: a bank!

They ask for e.g. first, third and fifth characters of a password that must be between eight and twelve alphanumeric characters, and the dropdowns to make the selection are lower case only.

This means they're storing the password unhashed, at best locally encrypted but decrypted to check the user login. Once past that, the second and final step of the login is to answer one of five questions as previously stored.
