Hopefully, somebody will be able to advise on my current "fight" with the Halifax.


1. Successfully received statements with charges.

2. Sent first letter requesting payment, etc.


3. Received a copy of a letter sent to a solicitors in England (I'm in Scotland) detailing account info, charges etc and claiming it would take 4 weeks for them to investigate my "complaint".


It is at this point I could do with some proper advice.


I have no knowledge of these solicitors in England and was extremely confused. I have never heard of them and they have never heard of me.


4. Received a letter form the solicitors in England with copies of two letters they had received from my Bank. They state they have no idea why my bank wrote to them and apologised for any inconvenience or embarrassment caused to me by my bank detailing account information etc.


This looks like a clear breach of the Data Protection Act to me and a major error on my banks behalf.


I would appreciate any advice on how to proceed with this.

As a DCA they are governed by the data protection and as long as the guidlines and rules are in place, there isnt a breach of the DPA, as it states in the DPA information can be exchanged as long as the company follows the DPA guidlines and rules. although im not 100% on that, ive studied the DPA on a computer related disipline

That does sound strange to me and I can only think it is because you live in Scotland which affects your claim in some way (but that sounds like rubbish while I'm typing it). I do hope someone in Scotland reads this - try PMing kennythecelt.


Meanwhile ignore the 'fact' that it is going to take them 4 weeks to investigate and send off your prelim or lba. It is Halifax you are claiming from not this firm.


All the best
