    The dept who deal with this fraud normally have 300 cases on the go, they now have 50k plus.

    But but but.....we must control the virus.

    So quickly it all turns to ruin

    I am not surprised about this this fraud. I would not be surprised if it is a ‘inside job’.
    In January 2012 I had an attempted fraud on my bank account where a cheque I had issued was fraudulently altered from £75 to £2,350. Fortunately by pure luck I managed to get this cheque returned ‘fraudulently altered’.
    The attempted fraud took place in a Nat West Bank clearing centre (which is part of the RBS Group now called Nat West Bank PLC) in the South East of England which I can prove. (In case Deeranged disputes my post).
    I would not be surprised if ‘crooked bank staff’ are currently ‘selling’ their customers personal details to the criminals to obtain these ‘bounce back’ loans.
    Fortunately I am not a RBS customer,

    And now we have high street banks freezing people's accounts as they don't like their political views.

    There was an article in yesterday’s Sunday Times about this attempted fraud. It was only prevented because the fraudster attempted to purchase a car costing £40,000 and garage owners became suspicious.

    God help us if Scotland becomes an independent country and the left wing government nationalises the banks in Scotland.
    Anti independence supporters will have their bank accounts frozen.
    Yet another reason for Scotland to remain part of the U.K.

    Highly unlikely that the banks would be nationalised and no evidence to suggest it would be the case. But let's use it as another reason to shout about how independence would be so bad.

    The SNP controlled Scottish Government’s current track record with the nationalisation of businesses in Scotland along with lending money to other businesses leaves a lot to be desired.
    To date they have purchased;
    Prestwick Airport which has cost the Scottish taxpayers £38 million plus loans of £50 million which are unlikely to be repaid.
    Ferguson’s Shipyard which was nationalised on the instructions of the now disgraced Cabinet Secretary for Finance Derek MacKay despite having been advised not to do so by people who were expert in this field of work. The Scottish Government had previously given the owner of the yard Jim McColl a loan of £45 Million which he used to build a new shed to construct fishing boats.
    The nationalisation was as a result of the fiasco regarding the escalating costs of the two new Calmac ferries which are now three years late and will cost over three times the original price of the contract if the ferries are ever completed.
    I received a tip off in September 2017 from a fellow patient when I was in the Royal Alexandria Hospital in Paisley for a minor operation which. nearly cost me my life why the Calmac ferry contract was running a year late at that time.
    BiFab. The Scottish Government gave BiFab a loan of £15 million in November 2017. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotla...-fife-42083484
    BiFab currently have no work and it is likely that this loan will have to be written off.
    On 25th January 2019 (Burns Night) it was quietly announced that the ‘Not for profit’ Our Power energy company had gone bust. When it was set up in 2016 Nicola Sturgeon praised the company that it was not like the ‘rip off’ big energy companies.
    There was no comment from Nicola Sturgeon that her favourite energy company had gone bust nor was there any mention that the Scottish Government had given Our Power £9.5 million in commercial loans which would have to be written off. Yet another loss for the Scottish taxpayers.
    Eventually the people throughout Scotland will realise that the SNP controlled Scottish Government are not carrying out due diligence before lending money to these ‘lame duck’ businesses.
