Make an appointment to speak to the bank manager. Then be firm with them.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Get your original post off to the big bosses marked in bold Complaint to the following by email, do it tonight:


[email protected]


Lloyde Banking Group


Mr George Culmer - Finance Director - [email protected]

Mr Paul Gittins - Company Secretary - [email protected]

Ms Alison Brittain - Head of Retail Banking - [email protected]

Sir Winfried Bischoff - Chairman - [email protected]


I suggest you send it to each email address separately and not address all on the one email. They will probably look at it else and say to themselves - 'let the next man deal with it'.


Make a complete list of every penny you are out of pocket by so that you can claim that from the banks with the statutory 8% interest added as a minimum.


Is there any reason at all you can think of why this has happened, or what might be the cause.


Remove the spaces in the email addresses that this site automatically inserts.
