Lloyds really seem to be making a hash of this case.
You will recall that HBOS banking employees engaged in systematic fraud against its customers including Noel Edmonds. HBOS has since been taken over by Lloyds.
The employees in question have all gone to prison but still it seems no settlement has been made.
Now Lloyds has seen fit to ask the original claimants to prove how they were defrauded. What, they have still not worked this out?
Apart from garnering dreadful PR what purpose does this serve? And surely it is incumbent on Lloyds to work out how the fraud was perpetrated.
All a bit odd if you ask me.
Lloyds Bank is this weekend under fire for its handling of the HBOS Reading fraud after demanding that the whistleblower couple who exposed the scandal prove yet again that they were victims. The pair have already handed over a mountain of evidence to the high street lender, which took over HBOS in 2008.
