    • Well, it's isn't a premium car, it's a Golf TDI in pretty good condition with 100k on the clock. I just thought I'd ask the question, but I accept that there's probably nothing that can be done in this case. 
    • Change the rules now, and set a precedent for ever.
    • I think it is too difficult for any party leader to negotiate withdrawal from the EU on their own. It will always be a cross party task, unless there is a General Election and the country gave the the Tories a big majority. But at the moment that is very unlikely.
    • Can anyone help me. I am stuffed.    PayPal allowed me to deposit £4.4k into a gambling website when I had no cash in my bank.    It was the final straw and so I came clean with the wife and joined GA.    I didn't even think to search on the internet, despite how wrong Paypal's actions seemed to me.   This was a few weeks ago and I suffer with depression and anxiety, so all of this just crushed me.   I wake up every day and literally beat myself up.   After a lot of intervention and love I am able to lift my head out of the sand and address what has happened.    Here's the issue:  My wife was getting texts from Nationwide daily saying '£1,700 is due out of your account tomorrow' and so she found the money, and transferred it in.    We took on debt of £3k and Paypal have managed to get their hands on c£4k.    My Paypal balance is now -£420.   I initially posted this in the wrong place and dx kindly offered some advice.    yes I would get all the payments back from NW under chargeback and remove that account as a payment method to PP as well as you say via CPA..   I am not embarrassed to say that I don't understand how this works and the call to the bank is filling me with dread.    What do I need to say to the bank when requesting a charge back? Does this fall under unauthorised transactions?   PayPal aren't letting me remove the bank as a payment method atm.   Trying to not get my hopes up as this would be so huge for me and my family.    Truly grateful for any help.    Pierre

    • 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.

Pockit have frozen my account.

Recommended Posts

Hi there after some advice and how all this works and where I stand.

 

Basically on the 26th Dec 2018 Pockit froze my account which quite abit of cash in it ..

When I contacted them on the phone the fella said its stansatd procedure when your account has payments going in and you are putting money in etc so i thought fair enough they wanted 2 forms of ID (photo/and address) and that he couldn't give any further details due it being a different department.

 

Couple hours later I got an email from the

different department saying...

 

This email is part of a standard review we are conducting on your account... What i used my account for and how I added funds.... And why I had received multiple payments from diffrent accounts (4/5).

 

So i went on to explain that I used my card for purchases and savings and went on to tell them i add my funds via PayPal... The random account payments were from computer repairs/advice.

 

I got a reply the next day saying (28th).

 

Could you please provide us with the pictures evidence of the source of funds?

 

The evidence of the source of funds could be payslips, bank statements or any other paper-based evidence highlighting where the funds loaded into your Pockit account comes from.

 

This is a normal part of our compliance with regulatory obligations, and we're grateful for your patience during the review!

 

So went on to send them everything requested. . Have not heard anything back since then... Tried ringing a few times but just got the same response.

 

Now what I was wondering how long can this review take? Is they anything I can do to make the process any quicker?

 

Also I've read reviews about them not actually getting there money back due to them thinking that they have been money laundering... What would that process entail like do they just keep the money or do i get it back but they close the account? Do they get the law (whomever that concerns)? Can I fight there decision?

 

Thanks reading and TIA for any reply,

 

Trev

Hi Trev

 

You need to stop ringing them unless you record all calls. Keep all comm'ns in writing only so you have a good papertrail.

 

What sort of amounts are you talking about in single credits - £1,000 ?

 

Are any credits from outside the UK ?

 

:-)

Hi thanks for the reply forgot about this post.

Nope every thing coming in from the UK.

 

They still have my funds how long they allowed to do this without telling me? I know they can freeze your account and don't have to tell you why but how long?

 

Been about 52 days now!

Hi Trev,

 

From the Pockit website - Virraj Jatania, CEO and Founder

 

I can't find a postal address for Head Office but you could email them with something like :-

 

For the attention of Virraj Jatania, CEO

 

Dear Mr Jatania,

 

Formal Complaint

 

My account and funds have been frozen since [date] and, despite supplying all the information Pockit asked me for, I have had no further news.

 

I would like to know, by return, when my funds will be made available to me to use.

 

You have had sufficient time to carry out necessary checks and I'm entitled to know when I can access my funds.

 

I look forward to your early response, failing which I shall escalate my complaint using the relevant regulatory bodies.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

See if anyone else has other suggestions or alternatives in the next 24 hours, after which adapt and use my draft.

 

:-)
