Hello All,

 

About a month ago I paid online for a flight with a European Airline.

 

Somehow (no fault of my own) the payment didn't go through although at the time it showed the payment pending.

 

The next day my bank notifies me of possible fraudulent activity and thus locks my online account.

 

Several days later the airline later email me about this non payment.

 

Now I am back in the UK I have contacted my bank, and furthermore contacted the fraud centre.

They notified me of the fraudulent activity was actually the airline getting into my personal online bank account with no permission.

 

So regardless of if, why or what their intentions are / were, is this not illegal for an airline, or anyone, to invade a person's privacy like this?!!

 

Can they just get away with it?

 

Thanks in advance

Can you expand a bit on that please?

Sounds like they tried to access your online banking with username and password instead of just taking payment, but that wouldn't be possible unless you gave them this info.

Please explain.

did you actually then fly with them and did they get their payment?

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

" They notified me of the fraudulent activity was actually the airline getting into my personal online bank account with no permission."
