My bank has been negligent for debiting a account an enormous claim submitted by a fraudulent supplier. The Bank did not exercise proper due diligence before debiting my account.I am seeking compensation for the amount debited and a separate amount for pain and distress. The bank wrote to me about charging interest on the fraudulent debited. What is the procedure?

Hi thank you for requesting my assistance. I am sorry for the delay, I have been offline.

Hi, assuming the negligence is not difficult to prove, you must request their deadlock letter and escalate your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service which would be free. Your relationship with the bank is based in contract and as such pain and distress are not automatic grounds for a compensation claim. If taking the bank to court you could claim for it but you must remain conscious that whether you get anything under that heading will depend on the judge’s sole discretion.

any follow up do not hesitate to send your follow up question. All the best
