Is the Financial Ombudsman Service Independent? — 8 Comments

  1. The Financial Ombudsman is a fraud on the public. The ombudsman is there as the public’s agent in cases of disputes with the financial services industry. I turned to them for help and they turned a simple request into a nightmare, please if you value your sanity stay well away from them and go and get advice for a lawyer. At least with a lawyer you will know that you are dealing with a professional who is fully accountable for his actions and the advice you receive. The Ombudman’s service is not, it is staffed with totally inappropriately qualified staff, that is if you are fortunate to find a member of their staff that has qualification other than a few GCSEs.

    There is Infomation that is forbidden to be posted up here, Date Protection Act etc etc. however if you care to do an Internet search, a QC’s view of the Financial Ombudsman, you will find that eminent person’s comment that the Financial Ombudsman is an affront to the Rule of Law………could you believe that,well I had to read it five times to be sure of what I was reading.

    Then another search for Financial Ombudsman Whistlerblower will shock you ridged.

    Once on this track you will find out so many things that the average person will shocked ridged to understand, and to be unbelievably incredible that are going on in the obviously corrupt manner in which UK’s Financial Ombudsman’s Office is being run.
    That in itself is bad enough, but when you actually see the Official Ombudsman’s web site and the actual Ombudsman’s description of the service that they would like you the public to believe that they deliver, then the Great British Deception becomes apparnent. They, the ombudsman for whatever reason are ripping off the vulnerable citizen and smiling at you as they do so.

    Some are saying that the Ombudsman is in the pocket of the Financial Servises Imdustry, After all it is the Financial Services Insdustry that funds the Ombudsman’s function, but here again it is up to you the public to decide these issues.

    For part part I feel that there is something very seriously flawed in the performance of the Ombudsman’s duties. Perhaps that fact that there is little or no public accountabilty, in fact I believe that the Ombudsman is accountablrpe to non and this could well be the reason why they are openly able to function with a taint of draconian corruption, but here again their case history lays before then for you to judge for yourselves.

    I am in the process of petitioning my MP over the conduct of the Ombudsman also I am aware of a number of others doing the same, and they share an overall opinion that the ombudsman’s is not only an affront to the rule of Law as the barrister above opined, but a grave insult to our democracy!

    In the name of justice for the vulnerable please don’t let them get away which such abuses as the Financial Ombudsman under Caroline Wayman is a direct a front to the Rule of Law and therefore can only be termed as an evil organisation.

      • We all need to be aware of what these people are up to under the guise of The People’s Agent commonly known as the Ombudsman.

        The office of Ombudsman in my opinion have a hidden agenda to undermine The Rule of Law and the Democratic process of addressing wrongs.

        The totally ignore all Human Rights Legislation often leaving those who turn to them for help more confused and vulnerable that they were to start with.

        There must be a proper full Parliamentary inquiry into what theses subversive anti democratic people are really all about. To me it would certainly appear that they are in the pockets of the Financial Services Industry and that they feel very much untouchable by the law of the land that abuse so openly.

  2. You have both summed up all of my own thoughts. The same applies to the FCA! I have an ongoing issue were they gave me incorrect information by saying a certain firm were unregulated , directing me to the FOS.
    I replied questioning their role? Asked why lenders could chose to opt in or out of regulation. It makes no sense.
    I asked many questions and when they replied, instead of answering the questions relating to themselves they returned to the company I’d originally enquired about and began to give me the truth. Eg “I think you should know that the firm in question is an appointed rep of principle firm X and therefore principle firm X is responsible for their actions and oh what was that…. principle firm X are regulated by the FCA. So basically they witheld this very vital info. How is that protecting the consumer!!!

    Thanks for a great read anyway guys! 🙂
