Hi All, Posting on behalf of a colleague. Col, as we'll call him, was removed from a club for being over-intoxicated. Unable to contact the friends with whom he had gone, in a city away from home, he entered a casino, clearly worse for wear, and proceeded to use his debit card to gamble away £400. He has no recollection of most of these events, only becoming clear after checking his statement. He intends to ask his bank to make a chargeback to reclaim the funds (each transaction over £100) - however, I am concerned that by doing so this might be considered fraud (if the bank even reimburses). I'm tempted to advise that he chalks it up to experience, but he argues that he was clearly too drunk to consent to gamble, and the casino have taken advantage. Thoughts?

Hi I have a very upset friend who has been looking after her 20 year old son for over a year now because he refuses to find work and has been claiming jsa. He was giving his mother £70 a fortnight towards food and household bills because she is a single parent working hard to put her other 16 year old son through college. However for the last two months he has gambled all his allowance as soon as it has hit his account so my friend has had to feed him for nothing. Is there any way my friend can have his allowance paid directly to her or at least part of it
