Hello, thank you for the question.
Have you reported this matter to the Financial Ombudsman Service as yet?
I would report it to the Ombudsman without delay mainly because they will liaise with your bank and determine whether your bank had sufficient anti-fraud measures in place. If the Ombudsman concludes the bank did not have sufficient measures, it can order them to reimburse the money.
The website for the Ombudsman: www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk and their number is *****(###) ###-####/p>
Is the company which defrauded you based in the UK or abroad?
If it's a UK company you could try to sue them for the money however I would speak to the Ombudsman Service as soon as possible. If you can please accept the answer and give me a star rating, Just Answer will credit me for helping you and I can offer unlimited follow up Q&A's
