  3. The CAA's plan for airlines to sign up to ombudsman type schemes hasn't been a success. So far, only Thompson have signed up. To encourage a greater take-up, from 1 June, airlines which haven’t signed up to an ombudsman scheme will have to pay £150 for complaints made to the CAA. The change could push airlines to settle legitimate claims more quickly, to avoid incurring a charge for escalated complaints. It may also push airlines to sign up to ombudsman schemes if they’re cheaper. The complaints service will continue to be free to passengers. http://www.moneysavinge
  4. Hi, What do you think I should do? I ordered Business Fibre 152mb broadband in January 2015 Virgin required a £230 deposit which I paid. It is now a year later, hundreds of emails and hours of calls and 6 missed apointments and we seem no closer to an actual installation. Costs initially escalated from £60 for the install to a couple of hundred, and 2 months in I opted for a government Connection Voucher to cover it. Since then they have continued to rise and I've continued to agree to them as they are still less than the grant. Highlights include: a 3 month
  5. The new Financial Conduct Authority will collect and share information from mortgage borrowers that may have data protection implications, it has emerged. The regulator will share personal data with the Bank of England, and its sister organisation, the Prudential Regulation Authority. The FCA wants to harvest large amounts of data about existing and new mortgages, including information on childcare commitments and outstanding loans and credit card bills. The data will also include each borrowers' income, including bonuses and overtime pay. The enhanced data requirements were conta
  6. The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) has issued a new set of principles around the use of continuous payment authorities (CPAs) after it found evidence that customers are not always aware of what they are signing up to. It has developed the principles following a sweep of websites using CPAs revealed that traders are not making it clear to consumers that they are being signed up to a CPA, or about their rights to cancel. CPAs have come under scrutiny recently after the OFT raised concerns in its interim report published in November, as part of its review into payday lenders, into the use of CPAs b
  7. Martin Wheatley announces proposals to beef up 'broken' interest rate setting system. City dealers who rig Libor should face criminal charges, the head of the review into reforming the benchmark interest rate will say on Friday as he announces proposals to beef up regulation of the "broken" rate-setting system. Martin Wheatley, a senior regulator at the Financial Services Authority, will also stress that other institutions face similar punishments to those handed out to Barclays, which was fined £290m for its attempts to manipulate the rate used to set borrowing costs for companies and ho
  8. Standard Chartered is working on an eleventh-hour agreement with regulators in New York to avoid a potentially damaging showdown next week over Iranian transactions. Senior directors at the bank and its team of lawyers are in talks with Benjamin Lawsky’s New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) to persuade the regulator at least to postpone the hearing and return to collective negotiations with other agencies. Sources said the bank was “desperate to avoid the hearing” set for next Wednesday, for fear it will fan more flames around the allegations. The DFS has not decided w
  9. A warning that Libor needed to be better regulated was given to the Government by the City watchdog nearly two years ago – but its advice was ignored and excluded from the Coalition’s flagship financial services legislation. Disclosure that the Financial Services Authority told the Treasury of failings in Libor and the urgent need to have it monitored by the watchdog itself or by the Bank of England comes as the Government has just ordered a fresh investigation into Libor by the FSA. Insiders say this will almost certainly retread the ground of the earlier report. The fact that the
