I WAS STUPID AND IN LOVE, LOOKING BACK NOW I FELT USED AND FOOLISH! I AM A HARD -WORKING PERSON ALWAYS WORK HARD FOR MY MONEY. I WORKED AS AN AGENCIES WORKER, WORK 55-66 HOURS A WEEK IN ORDER TO TAKE CARE OF MY 4 KIDS.

 

IT ALL STARTED WHEN I TOLD MY EX THAT AM PAYING TOO MUCH TAX BECAUSE OF THE HOURS I WORK.

HE WAS REALLY KIND AND ADVISE ME TO GO LIMITED MEANING BECOME SELF EMPLOY. NEVER THOUGT IT WAS POSSIBLE BUT HE HELP ME WITH THE REGISTRATION OF THE COMPANY, ASK ME TO OPEN A BUSINESS ACCOUNT AND EVEN ARRANGE AN ACCOUNTANT FOR ME TO HELP ME WITH MY TAX RETURN WHEN NEEDED. WAS REALLY HELP AND PLEASED WITH HIM FOR HELPING ME.

 

SO AS PLANNED I WENT TO BARCLAY BANK AND OPEN A BUSINESS ACCOUNT WITHOUT NO PROBLEM CAUSE MY CREDIT REPORT WAS GOOD AT THAT TIME WHEN I CHECK MY REPORT I WAS SCORING 759 AT EXPERIAN.

 

I TOLD MY EX THAT I HAVE OPEN A BUSINESS ACCOUNT WITH BARCLAY HE WAS REALLY HAPPY FOR ME AND ADVISE ME TO OPEN ANOTHER BUSINESS ACCOUNT WITH OTHER BANK FOR JUST BACK UP IN CASE IF ANYTHING HAPPEN, I THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD IDEAL, SO I WENT TO TSB BANK AND OPEN A BUSINESS ACCOUNT.

 

THIS WAS IN JUNE, SO IN JULY I STARTED WITH AS SELF EMPLOY GAVE MY BARCLAY BUS.ACCOUNT TO ALL THE AGENCIES I WENT FOR. WAGES WAS BEEN PAID INTO THE ACCOUNT. IN AUGUST I WENT WITH THE KIDS TP SPAIN FOR OUR SUMMER HOLIDAY.

 

WHILE IN SPAIN MY EX RANG AND NEEDED A BIG FAVOUR FROM ME, HIS FRIEND IS HAVING ISSUES WITH HIS BUS.ACCOUNT AND NEEDED A BUSINESS ACCOUNT FOR HIS BUSINESS TRANSACTION FROM ABROAD AND TOLD HIM I AM IN SPAIN CANT BE OF ANY HELP ESPECIALLY WHEN I AM NOT IN ENGLAND.

 

HE SAID OKAY AND WE SHOULD TALK ABOUT IT WHEN I COME BACK. 2 DAYS LATER HE RANG AGAIN TELLING ME THAT I DONT HAVE TO BE IN ENGLAND TO HELP HIS FRIEND I COULD GIVE HIM MY BUS.ACCOUNT DETAILS AND THAT THEY WILL SORT IT OUT BEFORE I COME BACK. I FELT SOMETHING WASNT RIGHT ABOUT THE HIS REQUEST BUT HE BEEN SO KIND AND HELPFUL TO ME THE PAST MONTHS AND I WENTED OUR TO GET BACK FOR THE KIDS THAT I WAS WILLING TO GIVE AND PLEASED HIM.

 

SO I GAVE HIM EVERY FROM MY ACC. TO MY ONLINE BANKING DETAILS. HE WAS HAPPY I HELPT HIS FRIEND AND WILL LET ME KNOW IF ALL WENT WELL. FEW HOURS LATER HE RANG AGAIN TO ASK FOR THE TSB BANK DETAILS INCASE THE BARCLAY WASNT GOING THROW SO I GAVE HIM ALL MY TSB BUS.ACCOUNT DETAILS. AFTER 5 DAYS I RING TO ASK IF HE COULD CALL THE KIDS BECAUSE THEY WANT TELL HIM ABOUT THE TRIP TO AQUALAND, BUT I COUNDT GET HOLD OF HIM.

 

BACK TO ENGLAND I WANT TO CHECK MY ACCOUNT TO SEE IF MY WORK HAS PAID MY LAST SHIFTS BEFORE I LEFT FOR HOLIDAY, I COUNDT LOG IN TO MY ACCOUNT AND I RANG BARCLAY TO ASK WHY I CANNOT ACESS MY ONLINE BANKING I WAS TOLD MY ACCOUNT HAS GONE THROUH REVIEW AND THEY CLOSED MY ACCOUNT I WAS SHOCK!! HOW DO I GET MY FUNDS THAT WAS IN THE ACCOUNT WHICH WAS ABOUT 850£ I WAS TOLD RING THE FREUD TEAM AND THEY WILL SEND ME LETTER REGARDING THE FUNDS IN MY ACCOUNT.

 

SO I RANG MY EX IMMIDATELY AND HE SAID THAT HIS FRIEND BUSINESS PANTER HAS INDEED PAID 52,000£ into my barclay account and that they transfer 9500£ into my TSB BUS.ACC AND THAN TO A DIFFERENT ACCOUNT. SO I CHECK MY TSB ACCOUNT AND WAS TRUE THEY INDEED TRAFER 9500 INTO THE ACCOUNT AND TRANSFER TO A DIFFERENT ACCOUNT AND THE 500£ HAS BEEN GONE TO FREUD RECOVERING TEAM.

 

WHEN I RANG TSB I WAS TOLD THEY CANNT TELL ME ANYTHING ABOUT THE FREUD TEAM AND MY ACCOUNT HAS BEEN CLOSED. MY EX ASKED ME TO RING BARCLAY AND ASK THEY ABOUT THE REMAINING 40,000 SO I DID AND WAS TOLD TO PROVIDE A PROOF WHERE THE MONEY WAS COMING FROM. MY EX GAVE ME A PAY SLIP FROM ONE MONEY GXOTEX AND SAID THAT THE MONEY IS COING FROM A GOOD SOURCE AND I SHOULD NOT WORRY THAT THINGS WILL BE FINE!

 

 

SO I SEND THE PROOF TO BARCLAY. TILL DATE I HAVE NOT RECEIVE NOR HEAR ANYTHING FROM BARCLAY. MY NIGHTMARE STARTED WHEN I RECEIVE A LETTER FROM LLOYD BANK THAT MY PERSONAL ACCOUNT HAS BEEN CLOSED SAME WITH MY SAVING ACCOUNT FROM HALIFAX BANK. I HAVE TRIED TO CONTACT THIS BANKS FOR EXPLANATION WHY MY ACCOUNT HAS BEEN CLOSED THE ONLY REASON I HAVE BEEN GIVING IS GONE THROUGH REVIEW AND THEY DECIDED TO CLOSED IT.

 

 

WORST OFF ALL I HAVE TRIED TO OPEN A CASH ACCOUNT WITH SATANDER, BANK OF SCOTLAND AND NATWEST, THEY ACCEPT ME APPLICATION AND SEND ME VISA CARD AND PIN BUT AFTER WEEKS AND DAYS GOT A LETTER SAYING MY ACCOUNT HAS GONE REVIEW AND HAS BEEN CLOSED.

 

 

I MEAN WHY OPENING A BANK ACCOUNT AND WEEKS LATER I CLOSED IT. MY EX STILL BELIEVE THAT THE TRANSACTION THEY MADE INTO MY ACCOUNT IS NOT THE REASON WHY ALL THIS IS HAPPEN. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO. I EVEN OPEN A CASHPLUS BUSINESS AND PERSONAL ACCOUNT IN SEPTEMBER AND RECEIVED A LETTER MY ACCOUNT HAS BEEN REVIEW AND I DIDNT MEANT THE TERM AND CONDITION SO THEY CLOSED THE ACCOUNT. WHEN I RECEIVED THIS LATER ON SATURDAY I ALMOST COMMITTED SUICIDAL.

 

 

THE ONLY REASON I DIDNT IS THAT MY KIDS WERE ALL ROUND ME AND I RANG MY MUM TO COME TAKE THE KIDS OUT, BUT LOOKING BACK I AM SO HAPPY SHE DIDT COME CAUSE I WOULD HAVE NOT BEEN HERE TO WRITE THIS LONG MESSAGE!

 

 

I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO HAVE ASKED AND CHECK MY CREDIT REPORT AND NOTTING IS SHOW ON MY CR. NO CIFAS, NO CRIMINAL RECORD THE ONLY THING I NOTICE IS THAT MY CREDIT SCORE HAS GONE DOWN TO 346.

 

PLAESE I NEED HELP!! WHAT CAN I DO?

Okay... So your issues is that you have had your accounts closed due to Fraud. But you say that your Cash accounts are being closed with each individual bank due to "Some Reason"?

 

Right lets see here, Why not file formal complaints high up the chain. Was there actually any fraud involved?

 

Have you tried a COOP Cashminder account?

 

Barclays - Doesnt Have Exec At This Moment.

 

Ashok.Vaswani@barclays.com - Head Of Retail Banking

michael.roemer@barclays.com - Compliance Exec

 

TSB

 

Paul.Pester@tsb.co.uk - MD of TSB

 

Finally, send off for your credit reports with each agency - £2 a pop and 28 days later, itll tell you any CIFAS Warnings.

It is a slow process to resolve but in the mean time, if you really need an account, try a credit union or you can try one of the other account providers - Acorn Account - Thing Banking... Etc

But they charge a fee, but itll keep you on your toes for now and help you out.

Hi

 

While you await advice for your situation please remember that this is not a issue that cannot be resolved.

 

IF you are having the thoughts you say you are having, please look at your children and then go and see your GP. IT is vital that you tell someone how you are feeling.

 

Failing that you can also speak to the samaritans via this link for more info http://www.samaritans.org/how-we-can-help-you?gclid=CKb306HZ4sgCFQjgGwodMzEIaw

 

We here can help you with the banking issue, but it is vital for you and your family that you get professional help to look after your mental health.

This is why you need to ditch the paying services and do £2 Stat Reports. Either way we are here to help.

 

Your next stop is Noddle (Callcredit) Its free... And Equifax.

 

Find out if anything has been registered there and going back to previous removed posts... The banks see this as typical behavior for Money Laundering. This is why they keep closing your accounts.

I would also add, while it wont tell you why the accounts were closed EG; Usually "Business Reason", Why not send a SAR request?

 

This right, commonly referred to as subject access, is created by section 7 of the Data Protection Act. It is most often used by individuals who want to see a copy of the information an organisation holds about them. However, the right of access goes further than this, and an individual who makes a written request and pays a fee is entitled to be:

 

told whether any personal data is being processed;

given a description of the personal data, the reasons it is being processed, and whether it will be given to any other organisations or people;

given a copy of the information comprising the data; and given details of the source of the data (where this is available).

 

Send a letter from our library and a £10 postal order... Youll uncover a LOT! Notes, transactions... the lot! :)
