  1. Care UK faces legal action unless it pays more than £3m in compensation READ MORE HERE: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/care-uk-faces-legal-action-unless-it-pays-more-than-3m-in-compensation
  2. MasterCard is facing a multi-billion pound damages claim that could reach £19bn for imposing allegedly illegal card charges. The claim, the biggest in UK legal history, will be one of the first to be filed under the Consumer Rights Act 2015. The Act enables a collective damages claim to be brought on behalf of a class of people who’ve suffered loss. MasterCard was found, following a long-running legal battle with the European Commission that ended in 2014, to have infringed EU law by imposing charges (known as ‘interchange’ fees) on the use of MasterCard debit and c
  3. The latest thing is the mis-selling of PCP car finance deals, according to the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB). They have said that lawyers have started to look at dealers and finance firms, to see if customers have been sufficiently informed about the higher interest rates for PCPs, and the like. With around a million cars being sold on PCP deals last year alone, if there's any deception found, this could be huge for the car industry, and indeed, very profitable for claims companies. If it is found that drivers have been poorly informed, or ev
  4. Argos owner Home Retail Group is setting aside at least £30m in compensation after admitting thousands of store card customers were overcharged. The company has launched a detailed review into the issue, which relates to "buy now, pay later" plans for some of the retailer's 1.5 million store card holders who were charged excess fees for late payments. Chief executive John Walden said it affected up to 10% of Argos card customers. They are expected to receive compensation of up to £100 each and Home Retail (Other OTC: HMRLF - news) will write to affected customers in
  5. The following is a short extract from a press report in today's Daily Telegraph regarding the Reverend Paul Nicolson's forthcoming court appearance at Tottenham Magistrates Court: By the end of next week, Paul Nicolson could be facing prison and bankruptcy – an unexpected turn of events for an 84-year-old retired vicar who has never previously been in this type of trouble. On 15 June, he will appear at Tottenham magistrates court in north London for non-payment of council tax since 2013: he owes £2,831.42. Meanwhile, he must decide what to do about the £47,000 in costs awa
  6. The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has launched enforcement action against Ryanair. This action follows a review by the regulator that found Ryanair is not complying fully with European consumer law designed to support passengers following flight disruption. Ryanair is now required to make policy changes or face the prospect of further enforcement steps leading to court action, if the airline remains non-compliant. The CAA has concluded that: • It is not satisfied that Ryanair is dealing with compensation claims for disruption caused by routine technical faults in lin

  8. Energy supplier Npower has been told that it may have to stop sales to new customers unless it can send out bills on time. The regulator, Ofgem, has warned the supplier that it needs to meet monthly targets on late billing. Unless it meets the targets by the end of August, Npower will have to stop all "proactive telesales" to new customers, the regulator warned. In a statement, Npower said that it was apologising to its customers "again". The company has topped the complaints tables for the "big six" energy firms every quarter sin
  9. These are from a book called Disorder in the Courts and are things people actually said ...in court, word for word, taken down and published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while the exchanges were taking place. ATTORNEY: What was the first thing your husband said to you that morning? WITNESS: He said, 'Where am I, Cathy?' ATTORNEY: And why did that upset you? WITNESS: My name is Susan! _______________________________ ATTORNEY: What gear were you in at the moment of the impact? WITNESS: Gucci sweats and Reeboks. _______________________________________
  10. The Co-operative Bank's rescue recapitalisation needs the support of £1.05bn – or around 80pc – of the holders of £1.3bn of its junior debt or the lender could end up being nationalised. A £1bn capital injection into the bank by its parent, The Co-operative Group, is contingent on enough bondholders agreeing to the deal, the company said on Monday. If this support is not forthcoming then Co-op Bank will be back in a position of having a £1.5bn capital shortfall and this could mean the business would be nationalised. The Co-op Bank's new chief executive, Niall Booker, also plans to separa
  11. City regulator to investigate whether insurers 'drag heels' when it comes to paying claims. The new City regulator will investigate whether insurers are "dragging their heels" when it comes to settling valid claims, and relying on the small print of policies to avoid paying customers. Martin Wheatley, the chief executive of the Financial Conduct Authority said this investigation would form part of a wider "thematic" review into the insurance industry. Announcing this investigation he said that the number of complaints against insurance companies was rising "and more [of these complaints
  12. Computer problems that affected RBS customers last summer are to be investigated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The IT meltdown locked many RBS, NatWest and Ulster Bank customers out of their accounts. Some £175m has been set aside by the bank, which is 80%-owned by the UK government, for compensation payments. The bank said that it had improved its services since the problems occurred in June and July. The FCA has taken over investigative duties from the Financial Services Authority.It has not set a timetable for the investigation. The investigation is the first stage of
  13. Financial Conduct Authority chairman John Griffith-Jones is facing calls to resign after he failed to flag up huge losses at HBOS in his role as chairman of accountancy firm KPMG. KPMG audited HBOS before its collapse and gave the bank a clean bill of health. Last week, the Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards published a damning report about HBOS’s management. It revealed the bank was shouldering £47bn of losses when it was audited by KPMG. According to the Daily Mail, Labour MP and Treasury select committee member John Mann has called for Griffith-Jones to quit. He says: “He sh
  14. I knew that young girl selling Lemonade in their advert was upto no good. . . . Banking giant HSBC, which was hit with a US fine for money laundering last year, is facing fresh accusations of illegal activity in Argentina. Argentina has alleged that the bank used "fake receipts" to facilitate money laundering and tax evasion, and launder 392m pesos ($77m; £50m). The country's tax authority said it had filed criminal charges against HSBC. HSBC said that it would cooperate with the investigation, adding that the allegations were "of great concern". "We are committed to working cooper
  15. Hi all, I have read up on some threads about fare evasion in general and felt that it would be useful if some experts could advise me on my specific case. So to lay it out - my girlfriend graduated last year and has been jobhunting for a while. She obtained a temporary job which required regular travel and i thought I could let her use my student oyster (she paid for travelcards herself). I personally used a PAYG oyster as I prefer to walk/cycle when the weather is nice and only tube when the weather is horrible. Obviously, she was caught at the station with my card and was info
  16. At least 1,400 soldiers have received unfair sanctions, including dismissal and missed promotion, because the Army spent several years wrongly disciplining anyone who received a police caution. Minutes and briefing notes from two Army Justice Board meetings show that the Adjutant-General, the Army’s most senior personnel officer, knew as early as 2011 of the problem, which is related to changes in the law on rehabilitating offenders. It is unclear, however, whether those affected by the mistake have been informed that potentially career-ending penalties should not have been enfor
  17. Wonga, the online loans company, is facing questions about whether its checks to prevent children from borrowing cash are adequate following evidence that it has allowed under 18s to build up debts. It is the high-interest loans company which came from nowhere to become one of the fastest growing finance firms in Britain. Wonga has faced widespread criticism over its interest rates, allegedly heavy-handed debt collection methods and, most recently, its £24 million shirt sponsorship deal Newcastle United football club, which some say will tempt impressionable young fans to get into debt.
  18. Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) will on Friday outline a financial hit of about £300m from its role in the industry's spate of mis-selling scandals and the IT meltdown which left millions of customers unable to access their money. I have learned that RBS will say in its half-year results that it is increasing its provision for compensating customers who bought payment protection insurance (PPI) from the bank by about £130m. That increase will take the total impact of the scandal to date for the state-backed lender to close to £1.2bn. Unlike some rivals, however, RBS will not make a significa
  19. Barclays chairman Marcus Agius will tomorrow be quizzed about how the scandal-hit bank intends to clean up its act in the wake of the interest rate-fixing revelations that forced chief executive Bob Diamond to quit. Agius, who has also resigned but is staying on until a new chief executive and chairman have been found, is due to be grilled by MPs on the Treasury Select Committee. This weekend he revealed his shock at the scale of public anger that has dogged the bank after it was fined £290m for its role in fixing Libor, a key benchmark used to set interest rates for a raft of financial prod
  20. RBS boss Stephen Hester says he will not take a bonus in the wake of the scandal. RBS admit guilt of offences similar to those committed by Barclays' traders The bank is thought to have accepted that it will probably have to pay about half as much as the £291 million in fines imposed on Barclays Royal Bank of Scotland is set to be fined about £150million for participating in market manipulation offences similar to those engaged in by Barclays, it has been revealed. Sources said RBS has admitted guilt of offences similar to those committed by Barclays' traders,
