Santander Have blocked my account - supposed fraud - want to raise a court claim to get my moneyback - help with how please?


Recommended Posts

Hello CAGgers,

 

I have a question on how to proceed with reclaiming money from  Santander please. 

 

The bank closed my account due to an inflow (£3k) which came from a car sale and have refused to release the money to me. The account has been closed and we have been on the matter for over 60 days and I am about to go to court.

 

I have obtained an SAR from the Santander and I can see that the account was flagged and then closed on advice from the fraud team. What is baffling is the fact that they refused to release my money.

 

I would like to know which forms (and which regulations to refer to in my particulars of claim) to use for this type of action as it is not Credit/Debt related.

 

Many thanks

usually down to money laundering rules. barclays are the usual favourite for this happening to people

not heard of Satans bank doing it before.

have they also trashed your credit file with a CIFAS marker?

 

do you have written proof of the sale of the car?

and proof from the buyer that they made the BACS transfer?

Hi dx, thanks for your response.

 

they haven't touched my credit file actually and I have all receipts and a proof from the buyer (screenshot of bank statement). They asked to see a V5C and I told them that I don't have it, this is the bone of contention. They have now closed the account but still refuse to issue a check for my balance.

and what do they want it for?

to prove I actually sold the car. I have resolved to go to court and the SAR shows all the notes on the account. The fraud department flagged this and despite all entreaties, they refused to release the money. The buyer has send across a screenshot of his bank statement and I have the sales receipt showing I sold the car. I have also asked DVLA for confirmation. 

 

Do you know which legislation I can rely on please and which forms to use as I think I have all I need to show proof of legitimacy i.e.

 

1. Sales receipt (Issued by me to buyer)

2. Bank statement Screenshot (showing payment) and letter from buyer confirming they purchased the car.

3. Letters to CEO and their responses

4. SAR

5. Cover Note. 

 

it has passed 80 days now and I believe if the NCA is involved it should show up in the SAR, in any event I don't mind engaging relevant authorities and showing the proof and transaction history. 

 

thanks

You wont see CIFAS on your CRA for something like this. You have to go direct to CIFAS for that.

However... It is possible that they just closed your account because they werent comfortable about something but didnt trigger AMLR

 

 

 

We could do with some help from you.

You will have to serve a Letter before claim first and exhaust their internal complaints procedure in line with the Pre Action Protocol before issuing a claim.

Hi Andyorch,

 

thanks for your response. I have gone through the CEO channel with multiple correspondence (letters) to no avail hence the choice to go to court.
