  1. Britain's markets watchdog has fined Tesco 16.4 million pounds for failing to protect account holders at its bank from a "foreseeable" cyber attack two years ago. The Financial Conduct Authority said that in November 2016 cyber attackers exploited deficiencies in Tesco Bank's design of its debit card and in its financial crime controls. "Those deficiencies left Tesco Bank’s personal current account holders vulnerable to a largely avoidable incident that occurred over 48 hours and which netted the cyber attackers 2.26 million pounds," the FCA said in a statement on Monday.

  2. Banks should cap unarranged overdraft fees and warn customers before they go overdrawn, the competition watchdog has said. The Competition and Markets Authority says this and other measures could save bank customers £1bn over five years. The provisional conclusions of the 18-month study into personal and business banking suggest competition is weak in the industry. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-36309396
  3. BBC1 Watchdog 29th October 7.30pm - available on BBC iPlayer https://youtu.be/ABjYCjxsW9g Xercise4Less were exposed for failing to process several customers' cancellations, leading to contact from Harlands and then CRS. Hmmm, now where have I seen that before ?? The funny thing is that X4Less have actually been behaving slightly better to their customers recently, when contacted directly. But it's Harlands that really need to be brought to account for the appalling harassment of their victims. Time to crank up our efforts to involve the CMA and Trading Standar
  4. Directors of the City regulator will hold crunch talks later about the imposition of a deadline which would draw a line under the £25bn payment protection insurance mis-selling scandal. Sky News has learnt that the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) will discuss the merits of a so-called time-bar exercise as part of a scheduled board meeting. The board meeting will come ‎four months after the watchdog raised the spectre of a fresh deluge of compensation claims as a consequence of a landmark legal ruling at the Supreme Court last year. Bank executives have warned that
  5. Well, I'm disapointed I must say. Anne Robinson went very easy on the fallguy from the IPC, and why weren't the companies involved named & shamed? #musttryharder

  8. Hey guys, Just wanted to know if this was possible? Have a dispute with the retailer, and the Ombudsman is delaying and delaying with giving its response - I've got to the point where I'm happy just to go to court. Thank you

  15. Wonga on the box tonight defending their stance on fraud management/prevention after reporting suggested that 350 people had their accounts raided despite not having any dealings with Wonga.

  20. There is a very good article about it on the BBC Watchdog website. Travelodge: Smoking or non-smoking? Travelodge is the fastest growing budget hotel chain in the UK. Seven million rooms were sold last year alone and some for as low as £19 a night. But whilst your bill may be low during your stay, afterwards you may be sent a demand for seven times that amount as a punishment for something you haven’t done. Along with restaurants and other public places, hotels have restricted the places on their premises that people can smoke. Light up and you can be fined up to
