Bank account opening in my name - not mine!

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

 

I’m looking for some advice.

I recently opened up a noodle account and noticed that a TSB account of some sort had been opened in my name. I think it was a loan as there have been monthly payments and now has a balance of £0.

 

I know I should have checked sooner but in the past we used ones like Experian mainly for our credit score.

 

Here are more details anyhow.

 

The account was opened approx 3 years after we left the address it is registered at in 2014.

 

There have been regular payments into the account/loan and everything other than it being false, seems ok.

 

Payments stopped in April of this year and is marked up to date as of the end of April.

 

Not sure how they managed to get my details as we had a redirect on for the mail and quickly notified people of our change of address etc. but something got through or left behind in the move.

 

I’ve contacted the bank and have been given the number for their fraud department and have also marked the account as disputed on noodle.

 

What I would like to know is what steps should I take to make sure this account is dealt with appropriately.

 

Thanks and any questions that might help let me know.

 

Spoke to their fraud department and it’s a current account, not loan etc.

They’ll investigate and send me a letter in 10 days detailing what evidence was used to open the account.

They’ve stopped the account and put a note on it.

Id also raise a formal complaint With them...

 

Will do.

Looks like whoever opened it has finished with it now as well.

There’s no deposits since April.

 

Just can’t understand why they would do it.

I associate bank fraud with loans to gain money.

Also funds laundered on from Criminals.

They ask you to pass it on to another account... Typical [problem]...

Ends up with CIFAS... Its never good.

Accordingly to TSB’s Senior Operations

Manager the account is mine.

Not only that but 5 others are mine as there are also 5 savings accounts.

Funny how I managed to forget about them.

I think it’s fair to say they dedicated about 10 minutes looking into this.

 

Now I have to appeal the decision by repeating what I said on Saturday.

 

I’m not trained to the same level as their Ops Manager but surely the accounts being opened 3 years after leaving the address and being opened very close to each other should have set off alarm bells somewhere.

So given all these accounts are yours...and the Senior OPS Manager having fully investigated it all within 10 mins...perhaps time for a DSAR request...of course they couldn't possibly breach the DPA given the fact that Senior OPS Manager has thoroughly investigated and is happy that you should be supplied all data in connection to the 6 accounts.

I think I will dx, thanks. I’m really annoyed at how little they care and the arrogance of the person who looked into this issue especially considering the reason I’ve contacted them.

Good point and I was thinking along similar lines - taking a more active approach investigation.

Update. I know this is my fault but I let TSB decide the speed of the complaint. Letter after letter was sent, telling me how they’re looking into the complaint and finally it’s been closed as far as they’re concerned. The outcome? Well, apparently these accounts are still mine. What a surprise.

 

I’ve just contacted the Ombudsman and they’re are looking into whether they can investigate or not. It’s seems it’s a bit of a grey area due to me claiming not to be the consumer.

 

TSB’s complaint team are absolutely appalling. I genuinely feel they’re trying their luck in terms of palming me off. They’ve clearly not looking into the complaint in detail as I’ve proven I didn’t live at the registered address.

    • 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.
