Hello my name is Jamie and I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. This is an email service so there may be delays when responding.

I am not with you, who do you want to sue?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
At this stage am asking your advice regarding the money paid to the banks in which I trusted the company is genuinely. Do I have a case to request from the bank to pay back my money?
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 3 months ago.

No. You had 6 years to bring a claim from 2004.

As such any claim needed to be brought by 2010.

Therefore I am sorry to say your claim is statue barred under the Limitation act 1980.

I am sorry if this is not the answer you want, nor the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
