Shares In The Halifax’s Money

by | 5th, April 2007

IN a story that is sure to warm the heart of, well, basically everyone, the Daily Mail reports that the Halifax has been on the receiving end of an embarrassing visit from the bailiffs as the bank charge crisis continues.

The bailiffs paid a visit to the bank’s West Yorkshire HQ carrying a court order for repayments of £1,900 to two customers ruled to have been charged unfair overdraft charges by the bank.

The rather aptly-named Paul and Darren Share, from Lancashire, had already been paid £3,000 of a £4,900 claim against the Halifax, but with the bank refusing to defend its claim before a county court judge, it was automatically ordered to pay in full.

Unless the dispute is resolved, the bailiffs could return to seize assets such as chairs, computers and maybe even more of the bank’s dignity.
