Wonga v HSBC (HFC)

I was asked yesterday to write a guest blog for Move Your Money (an important campaigning group encouraging bank customers to move accounts to credit unions and ethical banks)  about the news that Wonga have been ordered to pay compensation of £2.5m to customers for writing to them from fake solicitors and demanding payment for the cost of the letter. It has been an incredibly difficult time for me, because HFC Bank were doing far worse for about thirty years, using legitimate solicitor and claiming, in some cases, over £5,000 for the letter. The media ignore the story.

Here is the blog I wrote for Move Your Money
