Back in 2010 I was cold called from a firm called Assetland and almost forced into purchasing a few plots which were “due to get planning perms within a few months”. Of course this was bull. FSA have since investigated and after a year they have been found guilty of Fraud, their assets frozen etc etc. I have been told my deposits paid by credit card, and my cheque payments can be recovered. As some people who are in the same position have managed to get their full amounts back. But not me unfortunately. I mentioned section 75 in my letters but no luck.
Consumer Action Taken:
I wrote to my credit card company and they refused. I also wrote to my ban where I issued 2 cheques from but they dont seem to be responding. What can I do about all this?
One side I have been “Land scammed” other side my Banks don’t really want to help me it seems. I feel stuck.
