Hi everyone

My husband has a loan with amigo.

He was declared bankrupt in may this year.

 

Amigo loan is down supposed to be paid by his guarantor.

And has been since his bankruptcy.

 

today for some reason they’ve taken from my bank account as this was how he paid it Initially.

Can I get this money back as it’s not my debt and I’m not the guarantor.

 

The money they’ve taken is all the money I had

 

anyone help with this please many thanks

Complain to your bank immediately and claim the money back

you will be covered by the direct debit guarantee but anyway it seems to me as if the payment they took is unauthorised

Also begin a formal complaint to Amigo Loans and move it to the Financial Ombudsman Service as soon as possible

if they offer you a gesture of Goodwill you should insist on a fairly substantial payment such as£200 in order to drop any complaint to the ombudsman

I don't believe what the bank says.

 

If I were you I would send them a letter immediately giving them a firm instruction that a forthcoming payment to Amigo Loans is unauthorised and that you are instructing the bank not to pay it and that if they disobey your instruction then you will begin an immediate complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service.

You should deliver this letter to your branch and also send a copy recorded delivery as well as making a complaint over the telephone and getting a reference number

 

Which bank are you dealing with?

Santander. It’s a debit card payment apparently they said it couldn’t be stopped until it leaves my bank. And then I can raise a dispute

Send the letter Anyway.

 

Send it now. also deliver a copy in person as I have suggested above

 

You need to leave it beyond doubt that if they make any payment but they are disobeying your instruction.

 

I'm almost certain that in the past 2 or 3 years there were some rules or clarification made about stopping these kind of payments by the customer.

 

don't trust your bank and in particular I noticed that Santander came towards the bottom of the list in the recent FCA league of worst performing banks with worst customer satisfaction.

Don't trust your bank. They are not your friend.

Put the letter in confirming your telephone instruction not to pay and your disappointment that they have disobeyed your instruction and that you now want to begin a formal complaint

Begin the complaint and insist on receiving your money back plus any interest and any charges and also begin a formal complaint anyway because you will be looking for compensation which i suppose the bank will eventually say is simply a gesture of Goodwill.

Stop Believing your bank. They are as disreputable as Amigo Loans

You might find the following wording useful in your letter to the bank:

Date:

 

Bank

Street

Town

Postcode

 

Dear Sirs,

 

Account/Card no:

 

Please act upon the following instruction with immediate effect:

 

In accordance with Regulation 55 of The Payment Services Regulations 2009: I am advising you that I withdraw authority for any payments, in any form whatsoever, to be made to Amigo Loans, I have no business with them and they have used my bank details without my consent.

 

 

Yours faithfully,

Make two copies and get someone at the bank to sign one copy to confirm they have received it. (time and date)

Also worth blocking the card. Santander are a law onto themselves and can be a real pain in the back.


I hate bailiffs. Let me know if you have had a problem with them. I am sure i could upset them.

I now have experience with Securitas Security Services (UK) Limited and won in court against them 01/2018
