I'm struggling to see how to win this one, especially now after looking at the other thread. Is it too late to go back to our original dispute that they kept adding late payment charges even though they was successfully taking the minimum payment by direct debit? Reckon they would accept 50% as full and final settlement now, as opposed to £1 a month forever?
Okay so this is an interesting case. A lot of the current banks dont understand the indepths concepts of Cryptocurrency and most transactions are viewed as being High Risk. Its sort of like the Ebay Chargeback [problem] of yesteryear... But more up to date. So have TSB verified 100% that you are an innocent party in all of this? My concern here is that you may end up having a black marker put against your name. This is known as a CIFAS Marker and you must get confirmation from TSB that you will not have one put against you otherwise you will have a very bad time. I would suggest an email to the CEO's team - They cant override the Fraud / Chargeback team but if the money is yours and it passes all of their KYC Checks then there should be no issue. Let them close your account and find another bank who do want you. Also after the complaint has been had - You should refer this to the Financial Ombudsman Service as the way the bank have treated you is unfair IMHO. They have T&Cs that allow them to close your account at any time but it has to be fair - IE Breaching KYC Checks / Fraud / Court Action... Etc Also I wonder if reaching out to the papers might be an option. @BankFodder - Any idea? Legal action might also be in the question if you are shortchanged by TSB and considering their precarious situation last year with the IT Fiasco - They are on shaky ground.
Difficult to say however you can most certainly attempt a chargeback with Nationwide. Call 01793657689 and it should put you through to phone banking. They may reject the chargeback which is completely in their rights to do so. You've spent the money on this so its not exactly unauthorised but at the same time - Paypal and Nationwide should have failsafes in place to stop this. IF you are finding it difficult - Can I suggest Monzo as an alternative if things go south with Nationwide? I am with them full time - I dont gamble but i think it could be beneficial in your case - It will also give you a backup account if you need it https://monzo.com/blog/2018/06/19/gambling-block-self-exclusion/
Turbo failure on a tdi with 100k miles. Starts sounding more like "common". I've had VW all my life and if looked after they'll go forever, but then maybe i've been lucky. Don't know if you can claim a new turbo from dealer, surely that would make him a loss on a 10 yo car which in market terms is an old banger.
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....

Hot news for anyone who has suffered mortgage arrears charges, irresponsible lending or other unfair lender conductThe 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.
