Bank Fraud Please Help

Recommended Posts

First this is long so sorry but I really need some help.

In may of last year after returning from hoilday I found that £1000 have been taken from my account online, I contacted my bank RBS and they were great and refunded the money within a few weeks.

In Jan of this year I got a phone call from the fraud team saying there was activity on my account which they were worried about turned out was fraud they said not to worry and cancelled the card thats when the nightmare began it took them 3 weeks to send me the forms to sign I ring up for a update and while on the phone they told me my card has starnge activity on it yet again (new card only had it for two weeks) cancelled again got a new card, I wont ever use it online again too scared.

Now they have sent me a letter saying they think the fraud has been committed by someone I know and wont refund.

What do I do I am a single mum and uni all of my student loan £3000 which is for rent food childcare have been taken I am pennyless?

thats pants about the police - get a bank statement showing the fraudulent transactions that they are not refunding - go to your local police station and report it - get the crime ref no and go to the bank to re report it with the crime ref no -

I got asked ny someone to take some money out of their account, which I did with the pin they gave me, then about a week later they fell out with me and told me they were going to report me to the police, so I phoned the bank and asked them about it from my point of view...

 

 

I was told that the pin number is a private safeguard, if someone gave it to me then they have no comeback on the money taken out of the account, as they gave permission for it to be used. so no charges can be pressed against me...

 

I know this doesn't help, but may be why they are saying they won't refund. What has been taken, or has the money been transfred to a different account as the bank must know where the money has gone, if it has been withdrawn from a cashpoint then it should say which one was used..

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
