Another way? Let me start by saying I am a Freelance Journalist. For many years I have been a customer of NatWest, and have even investigated bank frauds.

Straight to the point my ex bookkeeper had over many years decided to de-fraud both NatWest and me, it was only in September of last year I found out what was happening after he had been arrested and charged with other unrelated offences, part of his modus was to use a rubber stamp of my signature to issue cheques, change my address, apply for a loan and give ‘my’ authority to talk to the bank.

I managed to recover the rubber stamp and informed the Bank.

At first NatWest were very helpful and I co-operated 100% with ID checks, giving copies of the stamp and identifying suspect items etc. I was then told it was with ‘Fraud’ and I could not be supplied with details of who was dealing with it and “The Bank cannot comment any further” This has been followed up by a letter closing my accounts and cards with the added: We will be unable to supply a reference… Hang on a sec I am the victim here!

To date I have made a DPA request (still waiting) and am left with the big question. What next? I would be glad of any help or advice from this list. I could always say ‘To hell with it and publish’. Is there another way?? :?:

It does sound as if the bank feels that you are implicated in some way.

 

Has your bookeeper been arrested/tried/convicted?

 

How long ago did you submit your DPA request?

 

What is the extent of your loss?

What is the extent of the bank's loss?

The Guy is on Bail and I am a prosecution witness for other offences. The Bank would not have known about the matter had I not told them!

The total amount is +- 30k to the Bank. I have evidence to show he changed my address without consent.

The police are aware of it, also the person concernd has sent a statement to the Bank admitting it........

I am aware that NatWest does not like the publicity of court cases etc.

Does anybody have contact details for the Banks fraud office in London, I have tried all the normal routes but end up with the Farnbough Office and then they hide behind the DPA or the "Department concerned does not deal with the public"

I have nothing to hide and I am surprised by the Banks actions.....

I have had a loan in my name plus overdraft plus cheques issued with the rubber stamp, The stamp was not good and the bank should have spotted it.

The person concerned has offered to repay the banks loss, his affidavidt states " I did not intend to defraud the bank or Mr XXXX and I want to repay the money'

 

I am unable to post full details on this site due to possible action that may be taken but will of course keep you up to date.

Only that if you think that the bank was negligent or in breach of contract

then you could begin an action against them

I would say both negligent and in breach of contract!

I just wonder how they would view my publishing it??? After all I won't have an account with them.

A case I knew of involved a cloned Cheque from a companies account for about 90k the Bank had cctv evidence and would not report it to the Police

I asked the press office for comment on that and was given 'No Comment'How many other cases like that go un-reported??
