  1. Flyingdoc, thanks for your response, this is really helpful. We will keep taking Abbey to court as our first line of action and keep the Ombudsman enquiry going as well. The fact that you say if the name is wrong the payment should have been refused is comforting, since this is definitely 100% fault of the bank. Thanks to everyone again for your help.
  2. I have pursued Abbey as high as I could go, they have issued their final response letter and we are now pursuing them through the Financial Ombudsman...

  5. Hi Guys, Thanks for your responses and sorry for not being more clear in the first place. 1) were the account details your employer paid the money too the same as the ones that you gave them? Yes. 2) are the sort code and account number you gave to your employer actually those of your mother? They are the account number and sort code that are shown in my Mum's internet banking, but Abbey say that because it is a saving account, those details are not valid for BACS payments and if we wanted to receive a BACS payment, then we were supposed to use a holding account number
  6. Hi everyone, This is my first post into what looks like a really helpful forum, it being my first post and I am asking for advice, I will try and repay the favour by helping someone with something that I have knowledge of. Perhaps in the I.T section! Anyway, here is what happened to me recently. Anyone who can offer their opinion as to what they think should happen, would be really appreciated. I work for a company, and get paid monthly via BACS. At this particular time, I was between bank accounts having been through a charges fiasco (got my money back though thanks) and I need
