Is the FOS Fit For Purpose?


You say above that you "suspect we will need to take this matter further and that’s why we have launched a new fund-raiser." This does not come through at all in the write up on the Property 118 Action Group's crowdfunder page.

It could be a big motivator for some. I know I was furious when the FOS let us down so badly. There is no point in having an Ombudsman if they don't do their job right!!

I've signed up already anyway but I may have signed up a lot quicker if I'd realised that the FOS would be in the Action Group's sights as a potential early target. They're no good as they are and no one else seems to care!

FOS rule West Brom Tracker Rate Hike is fair

I'm so glad I signed up right at the beginning and have been able to enjoy `the ride' ever since. The start of the fundraising, hitting the first £100k, smashing our target, seeing the legal arguments of both sides, getting the court dates and now waiting for the actual day in court. All this time not having to worry about the FOS not doing their job properly, full knowing that a defeat for WB in a court of law will hurt them a lot more. I never did understand why anyone would choose to sit on the sidelines and risk losing out.... Read More

West Bromwich Building Society Accounts

This really doesn't look like a well run business. It also doesn't look like a good place to keep your savings. If I had my money with West Brom I would certainly be asking a few more question on how it is being used??... Read More

Property118 Members vs West Bromwich Mortgage Company

Richard Kent

I think you missed my main point. I like being involved and doing something about the situation we find ourselves in. Why would I want to stop or cut down? I'm enjoying it.... Read More

Property118 Members vs West Bromwich Mortgage Company

Richard Kent,

I don't think anyone, least of all me, would have ever chosen to be in this fight with WB. However, now that we've been forced into it, there is a part of me that's actually ENJOYING the proceedings. There is big bully out there that's taking money out of my personal account without my agreement. There is no way I'm going to sit back and watch 'him' do it over and over again, especially when there is so many of us in the same position. It feels good to be part of a group that's standing up to the bully.

It's therefore no use telling us all to sit back and not do the things that are making us all feel better. It's not going to happen. It's too late for that. There is too much momentum that 's been built through others' hard work

On that note, if there is anyone out there still unsure weather to join the party please be assured it feels really good to be involved, so please join in. There's still time. It's not too late for that!... Read More
