  1. My son, had received a letter back last year claiming he had parked illegally, the charge was £163, I told him to pay it as it be very difficult to prove there was no proper signage, anyway he forgot about it then today he received this letter with a charge of £270. They say they have obtained a judgement against him and if he wants to avoid it he must pay the charge within one month, if he does that they will contact the court and tell them to remove the judgement. I have never heard anything remotely like this before. I have attached a copy of the letter to this post just hope
  2. Hi again, I hope this is in the right forum but I need some advice on what to do with this letter that I received today from Restons. The letter is dated Thursday July 27, 2017 and it arrived this morning (August 5th) It concerns an overdraft and it says that the client is prepared to consider repayment of the balance by instalments. It also states that Arrow has referred the account to Restons for legal action and says it means we are instructed to issue court proceedings against you. They have sent along an income and expenditure form and have asked me to return it to them
  3. Hi, is there a set procedure which Banks, building society's and investment Co are legally, duty, morally bound to follow, if an account holder/investor reports suspicious activity (Fraud) on their investment/account.? I ask as recently I reported a suspicious activity (Fraud) on an investment and was told it was transferred out to ( a person known to me) and "we will be investigating" I asked should I report it to the police and was told that was my right to report it to police but "we will investigate". I decided to report the fraud and contacted, Action Fraud. I
  4. Dear all, The Friday before last (4/7/2014) I went to make a debit card payment for dinner with clients and the transaction declined. I checked my account on my phone (Barlcays App) and my two barclays personal accounts (current and premier) 4 savings accounts and 2 business accounts were collectively showing to be overdrawn by £5,000,000. On 7/7/2014 all available funds in the account were sent to reconcile to Coventry OPS 05 ADV. I logged a formal complaint on (4/7/2014) and after countless calls to customer service advisors who gave excuses ranging from a technical error to
  5. Long story short Aktiv bought MBNA credit card debt which had been incurred by my son. Unfortunately card was in my name. Son made payments to MBNA for years (his monthly payments to MBNA were more than my income) until he incurred mental health problems and b*ggered off leaving me with the mess. I've written to AK advising of situation, got copy CCA from them (it's an old combined application form/CCA from 1999 WITHOUT full T&C's), used template letter asking Aktiv to write off debt, explained about my son and said all I could offer was nominal £1 a m
  6. I have a Rotary watch which had been very little used except for special occasions. Just outside the 12 months warranty a piece of the bracelet clip fell off making it impossible to remove the bracelet from my hand. I went to a Rotary outlet who kindly removed a link from the bracelet to 'get me out'. I then reported the matter to the original vendor (a provincial specialist watch retailer). He was unable to obtain a replacement fastener for the bracelet and advised me to approach Rotary myself. I did this and they advised that they do not sell spare parts and I must send the watch to them f
  7. Hi All - this is my first post as such on this site so please forgive me if I ramble! I recieved a call yesterday (11/06) at 16:50 from a man (Mark xxx) claiming to be from the DWP. He asked if I had recieved the forms sent 6-8 weeks ago and was I going to reply to them. He at no point asked me any security questions (such as NI number etc) and I asked what the forms were relating to, apparently these were relating to to a possible refund of benefit of some sort. He had details of my mobile no. my present address and DOB. He asked for my employer details - which I foolishly gave him- an
  8. Hi, I'd appreciate any comments on the following. I received a letter last week from Marks and Spencer Financial Services informing me that they have sold my M&S credit card debt to Arrow Global who would be contacting me in due course. Over the last couple of days I have had several phone calls (number witheld) supposedly from a company selling wine. They ask for Mrs ....... and then my Christian name, followed by my address so that they can send out some brochures. Needless to say, I refused to give out any personal information and hung up. Am I being cynical and is this a
  9. Hi, My husband has his c.v. on job websites because he is unemployed and he has had an e-mail from a company who have offered him a position as a 'Financial Services Officer', home based and they want to put money in his bank account. Here is an except from the e-mail they have sent him Your main job would be monitoring your on-line Task Manager, which you'll create on our site. Once the funds enter your account, your supervisor will notify you and assign you your tasks for the day. At this point you would go to your bank, withdraw the funds and transfer them using Western Union or Money Gram
