Q. I invested in a Post Office Bond in October 2008, aware that my money would be invested by the Post Office with the Bank of Ireland. The printed material from the Post Office said I was "saving with the Post Office". On 15 January, I received a letter using the Post Office logo stating that, because the level of protection under Ireland's Depositors Protection Scheme had been increased by the Irish government to €100,000 (£94,000), the Post Office would "no longer [be] part of the UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme". My investment is instead covered by the Irish scheme. The Post Office seems to regard itself just as an introducer of business between individuals and the Bank of Ireland and is casting savers adrift without accepting responsibilities towards us. This will not do – I invested with them because I trusted the Post Office and I believed that I was protected by the UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme. ML, Norfolk
