Sorry I was on the train and the signal is on and off.
Did your Solicitor seek an injunction at all? Do you know whether the bank breached their OWN rules?
No he did not. The bank no longer respond, using data protection as their reason and they have ignored both the solicitor's letter and mine. They failed to spot false documents and registered false identities in multiple branches. They told me on the phone that they had instituted their anti-fraud policies, yet continued to allow accounts to be emptied. But we face a conspiracy of silence from them
yes. They allowed fraudulent accounts to be set up and money to be transferred abroad on a daily basis long after being notified of the fraud. IE they failed to follow their own anti fraud policies
If you know they are part of the fraud then you can complain to the Police. An offence may have been committed under the Fraud Act.
You can also try and get your money back.
You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the matter is defended it will be set down for a trial. If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim and you will not need representation. If it is over £10,000 you will need a Solicitor for the final trial as this is a complex matter.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
The police have investigated the case and caught the fraudsters. The only role they see the bank having is lax security checks as these men used false names and the bank's failure to react to my notification of the fraud in relation to the specific account that I paid into but also the other accounts.
It has proved impossible to get them to disclose details. Would it not be wise to send them a letter with copies of my letter and the one from the solicitor before taking on a major bank in legal action based on the limited information that I have?
Yes you can do that or even apply for specific disclosure.
Does that help?
Yes it does. Thank you.
