    • 2 years ago I made a complaint against a GP at my surgery....the reply I received was the GP could not recall the events (in the complaint) because the GP see so many patients a day and the complaint I sent was 12 months after the event.   Now to what happened recently....   1. I had a appoointment at 10am with the same GP I had made a complaint againt over 1 year ago...I booked myself at reception and waited, waited when it was 10.20 I asked at receptionion when would I been seent, as my appointment was at 10am. A receptionist told me 'There has been an emergency of some kind with a patient...so that has caused a delay and your appointment will now be moved to another GP' - I asked why the appointment was moved and was told 'sorry I cannot tell you' and you will be seen soon.   2. 10.30am and still not been seen so I asked another receptionist, she checked the computer system and told me the GP (name) has refused to see me because I made a complaint against him over 12 months ago and now my appointment was being moved to a different GP and I had to wait. I told the receptionist this was wrong and the GP had to be impartial as a GP and he was making this personal by not seeing me.   3. Eventually I was called and saw a different GP and explained to him what happened and the GP I had originally had an appointment with had refused to see me because of a complaint I raised against him over 12 months ago. The GP I was with was shocked and surprised and told me that GP should not have refused to see me   NOW I need your help to write a complaint, please can you help me
    • ok...thank you. I have read the post (thank you for guiding me to that) and will write in similar thread.   My worry is that I lied to the inspector about not having used the card before. I also recall now that he did not ask me to sign the notes he took so I am worried I have no idea what he wrote down.    Without my signature on his notes, would this be admissible evidence in court?

    • Hiya   First time poster, but hopefully I can help you to resolve your matter.   I really empathise with your position. I received a visit from an equita baliff on 10 May 2019. The feeling was horrible and they were exceedingly polite but also inflexible and threatening. I was informed that they would clamp and remove my car.   The rationale behind this is that the Baliffs are not employees, they are sub-contractors paid based on the fees that they can generate. Taking a vehicle creates more fees. Unfortunately for them, there is a very quick process to get the matter resolved:   1) Phone the Traffic Enforcement Centre in Northampton - it is crucial to do this first thing in the morning. 2) Request permission to file an out of time witness statement (forms TE7 and TE9). Upon correct completion, the forms will be passed to the local authority and enforcement action will cease at that point. The TEC will inform you that the forms have been correctly filed and the action will cease. 3) Forward a copy of this email to equita 4) Contact the local authority directly and explain your circumstances. The local authority will be more sympathetic than the baliffs - especially if you are a vulnerable person. A manager within the local authority will have the authority (as the prosecuting party) to instruct the Baliffs not to continue and instruct them to waive their enforcement fees 5) To ensure that this goes smoothly, make sure you offer to pay the council what you owe and also cover the cost of the court filing fee. At this stage, it will be worth complying with the council and paying the c. £80.

    • 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....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

Bank account closed without warning

Recommended Posts

I found out yesterday that RBS have closed my account with no warning and they have said I can't get any funds out of the account.

 

They say there is a letter on it's way - it leaves me in a bad way just a few days before Christmas.

 

They told me to contact them in the New Year to see if there is any update.

 

How long can they keep my money for?

 

I had an old debt with Natwest going back 20 years - can they take this from my RBS funds??

Welcome back to CAG - They may attempt to use the Right To Offset - But i am unsure if they are able to do so (Had this issue previously)

Can you setup another account elsewhere / Do you have a parachute account already?

 

Have you had any transfer in or out recently?

I already know that I am on the CIFAS register (not my fault) but it was too stressful to fight the case so I would imagine this is the reason - the RBS was my spare account when the previous account was closed! I do have one other bank account that is still open and not linked to RBS

I really need my funds back

If you are on the CIFAS register then this will be RBS seeing that and going - "Nope - We dont want you"...

AS for funds - It depends on the situation - If these are your funds - Then technically they should arrange for full withdrawal providing their Fraud Team identify they are genuinely yours.

Ok thank you - I can show where all the funds came from so I just hope they release them - what sort of proof will they want - contact details of everyone who deposited them? I have a lot of transactions

Oh hang on a sec - Lots of deposits? ... That doesnt sound good.

Not saying that youve done anything wrong but if you have lots of deposits, sometimes it can ring alarm bells...

I know it might not sound good - but I had no other account so had to use it for business

I understand that - So I see a few pointers here

 

1 - You've breached the T&Cs of the account more than likely - A Current Account is for Consumers only - Businesses need to have a Separate Current Account

2 - You have a CIFAS marker... 'Nuff Said

3 - Money sent to you may have come from an untrustworthy source

4 - Debt oustanding to RBS Group

 

Unfortunately the bank works under a veil for things like this... Part of Money Laundering Laws / KYC.

How much is it that they have kept?

Right lets deal with Barclays. What did you do to deal with them?

 

RBS - Well - I dont know what to suggest - Apart from sending a SAR Request to them.

You could complain to the CEO but we really need to try and sort this in some way.

 

Thing is - We cant help you unless you tell us EVERYTHING.
