I HAVE RECENTLY BEEN SCAMMED OUT OF MONEY THROUGH NON TRADING COMPANY OFFERING LOANS. I HAVE CHANGED BANK ACCOUNTS ETC. WHEN LOOKING THIS UP IT DID SAY REPORT TO THE AUTHORITIES I AM NOT SURE WHAT AUTHORITY THAT WOULD BE. THEY HAVE HAD ALOT OF MONEY FROM ME I HONNESTLY DID NOT THINK THEY WERE WHO THEY ARE. APART FROM MY BANK DEALING WITH FRAUD DEPART ETC, I HAVE JUST FOUND OUT INFORMATION THAT THERE IS SOME KING OF FRAUD MARK ON THE CREDIT FILE WITH EXPERIAN I HAVE JUST SENT THEM AN E-MAIL TO UP DATE ME ON THIS. IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO, I HAVE ALL E-MAILS FROM THIS COMPANY SAYING THE MONEY IS GETTING TRANSFERED IN AND ALL THE REST OF IT. IT HAS CAUSED ME ALOT OF TROUBLE WHAT DO YOU THINK I SHOULD OR CAN DO AS THIS IS ALL WRONG. THANKYOU LYNNE XXXXXXXXXXX
Hi Alice thanks for trying to help with advise. what else can I give you as I should of known better than to fall for that. what other information can I give you. All I have on my computer is e-mails telling me monthly instalments which I have paid, and I noticed last week a further payment went from my bank and it had been cancelled weeks ago when the fraud department put a mark on my account for our attention. I do have all receipts and proof of large amounts of money out of my bank etc. I will need to go to the bank tomorrow to ask why a further £148 was sent to this company. I was not sure if I should contact the ombudsman maybe they deal with this kind of problem. Lynne
Well no, as I was in the bank for over three hours getting paperwork etc and new accounts sorted out. obviously they must have spoken to the fraud squad to say about what has happened. I told them in the bank the amount I have lost, but no-one has actually said for me to go to the police myself and I feel such a bloody fool Alice. This goes on all the time I never thought it would happen to me, it has caused a lot of problems financially as the loan I asked for was to pay my builder, he was actually in when he read one of the e-mails they sent saying the money is going in today tell your builder he can get this, talk about make a fool of me again. and now a fraud mark has come up against my credit file although I have wrote to them to explain this. lynne
The bank said they may be able to get some of the money I thought they would have advised me to go to the police and explain this to them. I am going to the bank on Monday first thing, as I noticed a further payment was sent to this company I do not see how as the bank did cancel this weeks ago when this first appeared on my account. would the company still have the cheek to ask for the amount although they are breaking the law. Should I contact the fraud squad myself to speak to them, I will ask at the bank tomorrow I need to get this cleared up. I have a lot of information I can retrieve which may possible help if they look at all the correspondence I have. I'm just not sure it has upset me so much I can not think straight. lynne
