Has anyone considered approaching the SFO as a group since they will investigate if you meet the following criteria, particularly when the lenders come up with a cooked up agreement (CCA)


Factors considered:


  • does the value of the alleged fraud exceed £1 million?
  • is there a significant international dimension?
  • is the case likely to be of widespread public concern?
  • does the case require highly specialised knowledge, e.g. of financial markets?
  • is there a need to use the SFO's special powers, such as Section 2 of the Criminal Justice Act?

are you thinking of taking on the DCA's or the banks?


i was thinking the other day a DCA would be a perfect place for ID thiefs and card cloners to work.


They seem to search peoples personal details regardless of if they have permisson or not


they take payment details over the phone


i wonder what checks and balances DCA's have to stop this or if anyone has raised this with ICO,OFT/TS. I guess if id fraudsters where operating out of a DCA that would come under the serious organised crimes agency


anyway this is me just being suspcious and paranoid

There's lot of discussions on DCA's not having enough paperwork to pursue a debt and they seem to be holding on D of A as a way of proving debt. In some cases there are people who have clearly paid their debts off but are still being chased, IMO this is nothing short of defrauding people of money.


If enough people make representation to the SFO they might look at it.

On the other hand can the SFO really be trusted to do the right thing in light of the recent Saudi/Bae scandal, where they were pressured to cancel a long-term investigation into financial ireegularities because it was in the "national interest" (for which read kickbacks to UK nationals and entities from the massive £100 billion Al Yamamah arms deal) but which was "painted" in the press as being only to avoid upseting to the Saudis...



The more I read this site, the more congratulations I want to heap on CAG for the invaluable service they are performing. Bravo!
