stone, the letter is a standard template the FSA sent to all of us mine is exactly the same, they must think we are stupid!! They don't seem to have an inkling about this do they, what the hell is Joan Humble on about, any plans to clarify the legal position ? doesn't she know anything about whats being going on?? about the OFT case??

I knew that I had seen a very similar letter somewhere, the thing is are our MP`s aware that the FSA are sending them bog standard template letters, if they are not then other than us meeting with them face to face how on earth are they supposed to learn what is going on. I plan to take all of my paperwork involving my claim down to Mrs Humbles` surgery next week. I am sure that she will be pleased to know that she has been fobbed off by the FSA just like the rest of us.

nice letter ...

 

you should also include a paragraph about why they included business accounts which clearly have nothing to do with UTCCR's (even the OFT and banks say so) and *maybe* also the fact they *may* be considering to include credit cards.

 

the fact remains that the waiver works only for the banks and not consumers and is a disgrace.

Hi there crfx I think that is excellent. Is there anything else we can do. How will you get them to take notice of this and get it on their agenda? It needs to have some power behind it they may ignore it as they do with most things?

Seems OK to me CRFX250. I am going to see my MP Joan Humble tomorrow and have copied the letter to show her that she also has received a "fob off " letter from the FSA like the rest of us.

Good work. That's probably an autoresponder, so your idea to send a follow-up via snail-mail is sound too.

 

I did a little more digging around in the select committees website after viewing your link and came across this - it's the contact details of the Committee Administration team. I wonder if might be worth your sending a copy letter to one of these people to try and get it under their noses, rather than, or in addition to, using the constituent/MP channel? ;)

 

I wonder if Laura Humble Media Officer is related to Joan Humble MP for Blackpool North

 

Good work you two. Keep it up.

Ja De,

You asked for the FSA's reply to the Rt Hon Andrew Mackay (Bracknell), here it is - I make no comment, as the MP said it all in his reply to me (see previous post).

Apologies to all of you that have not got Word (did you know that there is a free alternative?)

 

PS I have just realised that this reply is the same sent to Stone's MP. Templates:(

Re Berserker post 678

Well what a joke it IS hilarious! I really wish we could get this made public, it's just not enough now, that we all know, it should be on the NEWS. (which reminds me I never did get an answer from the BBC, they obviously didn't do that program they were talking about??) come to think of it I haven't heard from a few others, I know I am losing my grip now.it's all getting a bit much, not enough notice being taken of this, and I am sick and tired of asking where are our leaders with wise words of advice??? I have read a lot over on the MSE and I am sure there are a lot who are not aware of the amount of work going on over here, I keep pointing them here especially when someone say's:- quote" is the case over yet have we won"

I think that we will all find that THE RIGHT HONOURABLE JOHN Mc FALL ,(i have very rarely shown respect to any MP) will be asking questions concerning the whole concept of JUST WHO ARE YOU to the FSA,what is your purpose,and this will certainly be the most uncomfortable set of questions we will see for a long time,not only is SIR GRIEV or whatever he is called got to answer to questions he will have to give a detailed explanation to what he thought was just another routine committee report..this meeting is more than that..i cannot see Sir greiv being there as a mysterious illness may befall him because he already knows after the inflation report to the committee he had already fallen foul of the Chairman John Mc Fall ,and he also knows that their are questions he does not want to be asked,but will be ..So i do trust this committee will be asking some serious questions that we all want to know..what use are they and who gives them all this authority and power they seem to beleive the own...crfx has written his letter and it is to the point asking honest questions nothing vexhasious just simple to the point and would be worth any MPs time to have read this letter .I also think this committee hearing will set a standard and highlight the inequalities of the FSA and i would not be suprised if the FSA lifts this waiver before the COMMITTEE HEARING..but that will not cut any ice the same questions will be asked the same questions we all ask why and what are you doing to or for the consumers . A seroius breech of trust will be the end result...thanks mostly to all the caggers on here that they (FSA)have been and are being exposed

trust you crfx POSTAL STRIKE ..LOL

What a wonderful opportunity, at last some way to make them answerable! You are brilliant crfx. What can we do to help in the postal strike. Is there any way we could deliver by hand in our area to MPs I could. By the way what about the other districts in my area, for instance mine is Newport East, Jessica Morden, but Pual Flynn is Newport west, can we include him and then teirs David Davies for Monmouth? I could deliver to these three.?

It's great that people are willing to help with hand deliveries etc. (and I think that's a good idea and well worth doing as a backup olden), but unfortunately it assumes that the recipients will be in their constituency offices to read them in time for the review.

 

I think that electronic delivery to the Committee Admin team will be crucial here and in light of the Postal strike should be our Plan A fallback.

Yes I see what you mean, and as you say, knowing the way the MPs work, the will probably have to go up to London by first class expensive travel, to stay in a top class expensive hotel a few days before the meeting to claim on there bulging expense account. When we were running a small business, we had to pay every single penny, no private expenses allowed, we had tax inspectors, Vat inspectors, even NI inspectors all to make sure they squeezed the last drop of blood.

Anyway please please go get them.

Thanks for your copy Berserker. How many more ppl are getting these letters from the FSA, everyone I shouldn't wonder.

Your right olden & smutley, it IS a complete & utter joke, & trouble is we're all now sick & tired of it.

I really do hope you will get some good news when you see Joan Humble stone, & she does do something to help.

I'm also sorry to hear that the BBC hasn't got back to you olden, & thanks for trying to get us noticed more than we already are.

Hi,

Another reply from John Greenway MP for Ryedale, he wrote to the FSA (who churned out the standard response) and Angela Knight Chief Executive of the British Bankers Association, who has crossed swords on many occasions with Martin Lewis on GMTV.
