Outlook There is confusion over exactly what the Securities and Exchange Commission is investigating in relation to the downgrading of the US by credit ratings agency Standard & Poor's (and no one will say on the record). Some reportssuggest the SEC is conducting an insider dealing inquiry. Others think the regulator is looking into the decision itself.

Q. I was a customer with Barclays for several years, but closed all my accounts in spring 2008 – I thought. I was badly injured in the London 7/7 bombings and received compensation. When I went to the bank with a compensation cheque, the woman at the counter was very rude and quizzed me as to "where you got this money" and "what was it for", as if I was a drug dealer. This was despite the cheque clearly stating London Bombing Charity Relief Fund. So I closed my account.

Q. I am disabled and problems with my Santander card are damaging my mental health. I was notified that dormant accounts incur a £10 charge. I've not used my Debenham's store card for some time and decided to close the account. I wrote to Santander by recorded delivery and cut-up the card. I also logged-on to my account online and requested the card be deactivated. Three weeks later, I still haven't had confirmation that the account has been closed, nor have I had a response to my online message. FM, London.
