Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Have you raised this with your bank yet please Karen?
Hi Alex. Yes I raised this with the bank straight away and they suggested that I try to speak to the person myself to get the money back. I emailed and spoke to the person about half a dozen times over a two week period. At first he seemed like he was genuinely going to give it back (I have emails to this effect) but then in the end I was being fobbed off. I went back to the bank and they investigated. They confirmed that it was not an error on their part (which I knew - it was my error) but they would write to the person and ask their permission to return the funds to me (incidentally my account and his account are both with Lloyds). He did not respond to their letter and so they have now wrote to me to say that I should seek legal advice as there is nothing they can do. They cannot just take the money back without his permission.
Sorry it sent before I'd finished. Many thanks
Yes I do. I have a home address and his business address.
As I don't know whether the account was his business account or personal account should I send the letter to both him personally and also to him as director of his company? if he does not respond and I file ca claim, do I then also address that to both him and his company?
Many thanks for your help
No that is all thank you
