Q. In September last year, someone strolled into the Highgate Village branch of Lloyds TSB and withdrew £2,400 in cash from our account, using only a driving licence as identification. They also conducted some transfers between accounts, using my cash ISA allowance. On the following Monday I was called by Willesden Green branch to ask where I was and was I withdrawing more cash. Lloyds TSB repaid the money into my account promptly. I asked for a copy of the fake driving licence to see if it had my own identification number. I was called by someone telling me that all proper procedures had been followed. I didn't believe him. My letters and phone calls have since gone unanswered. The Financial Ombudsman Service told me it is not concerned with lousy service, only with financial loss. Eventually, Lloyds admitted it hadn't taken a copy of the driving licence. It added that even if it had it could not give it to me on data protection grounds as, by definition, it was not about me! Lloyds offered me £40 for a new driving licence, but I want the bank to promise to train staff to prevent it happening again. SA, Twickenham.

Q. Three weeks ago I contacted Curry's to get my washing machine repaired. It was covered under Curry's Coverplan extended warranty. When I first phoned, the multi-choice phone system failed to put me through and after several minutes the line went dead. Next time I phoned I was put through to the complaints section, which gave me a different number. Eventually I spoke to someone who was rude beyond belief, but told me I would be contacted by an engineer within 24 hours. This did not happen, so I phoned again and was given another phone number. When I phoned this number, I was told the engineer would come on Thursday. He arrived on Wednesday and told me I required a new motor, which would be difficult to obtain as a supply company had gone into liquidation and the parts may have to come from Italy. Since then I have phoned several times to be told firstly the parts had been ordered and despatched, then that there had been a delay. The latest time I phoned I was promised the engineer would phone me back, but he has not done so. SF, Belfast.
