  4. Lord Mayor of Copenhagen accuses Ryanair of 'social dumping' and bans staff from flying with company on official business In a plot twist worthy of a Nordic Noir serial, the Lord Mayor of Copenhagen has dented Ryanair’s plans to make a killing with its new base in the Danish capital. Frank Jensen, a Social Democrat who has been the city’s Lord Mayor for five years, has banned staff from flying with Ryanair while on official business - even if it means paying much more on the Scandinavian airline SAS. Copenhagen has 45,000 municipal workers. Mr Jensen told the Berlinske new

  6. Adverts for websites that charge for free government services are removed from search results Google has cracked down on "copycat" websites that charge unsuspecting users for government services that are normally free. The websites typically enable users to order official documents such as driving licences or European Health Insurance Cards but add a "service fee" on top of the Government's own charge. They attract users by being advertised above the normal rankings on search engines such as Google and are often designed to appear similar to the equivalent official websites. Users
  7. The Advertising Standards Authority has ordered a payday lender to pull a television advert for being misleading and for failing to ensure the representative APR was sufficiently prominent. The advert, from Peachy.co.uk, a trading style of Cash on Go, stated: “Payday loan companies expect you to repay your loan in one big payment. However, Peachy.co.uk offers multiple repayments, that’s right, multiple repayments”. Images of different payment amounts appeared before on-screen text stated “MULTIPLE REPAYMENTS. Over 18s, subject to status. Representative APR 1058%. Terms and conditions appl

  9. Customers are currently being charged as much as £12 to use their cards when they pay, though the transactions can cost as little as 20p to process. Jo Swinson, consumer minister, said companies had been getting away with using hidden charges to "rip people off" for far too long. Surcharges have risen dramatically in recent years, particularly among low-cost airlines. The extra fees have been levied on everything from cinema tickets to utility bills and holidays. In some cases, the surcharges are higher than the value of the item being purchased. Airlines, which currently impose some of
  10. The consumer regulator, which is closely watching payday lending practices, has revoked the lending licence of MCO Capital, which traded as Help Loan. The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) today stepped up its action to curb rogue payday lenders by banning MCO Capital, which traded online as Help Loan. The regulator revoked the company's consumer credit licence after it failed to improve its "unfair business practices", which included chasing non-customers for debts they had not taken. Last August, the OFT found that MCO was failing to make identity checks on applicants, which led to it bei
  11. The loans, sometimes taken by student-parents to feed their children, lead to “desperate measures” as people get caught in a vicious cycle of debt, it is said. As a result companies which offer short term, unsecured loans at high interest rates have been banned from advertising anywhere on the University of East London campus, including in magazines, on posters, or online. UEL made the move as more students were turning to the firms to tide themselves over between grants and loans. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/borrowing/loans/9898361

  13. Rogue money lenders and debt collectors will be stopped from trading under plans put out for consultation. The proposals will mean the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) can suspend firms' consumer credit licences and stop them operating with immediate effect if it believes there is an urgent need to protect consumers from harm. The OFT currently has the power to suspend licences, but businesses can continue to trade pending appeals, which can take two years to be heard. Plans to put such firms out of action immediately were announced by the Government in July. The move, which could apply to a

  16. Bosses of failed banks would be handed lifelong bans from top City jobs and even jailed under plans unveiled last night. The Treasury published proposals that would see directors of broken banks prevented from working at other financial institutions, while the Government launched a consultation on new criminal offences covering misconduct in bank management. A Treasury source said: ‘It is vital that directors be held to account in the event of a bank failure. These would be among the toughest reforms of this kind in Europe.’ Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/news/article-
