More about Bank of Scotland investment mis-selling
In 2011 the bank was forced to pay out £17 million in compensation by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) for mis-selling investment plans to customers. The FSA also fined the bank £3.5 million for mishandling complaints relating to investment mis-selling. Evidence of mis-selling was uncovered as early as 2007, and there were also cases where exit fees and penalty fees hadn’t been fully explained.
Investment mis-selling is not the only financial scandal for which Bank of Scotland has drawn criticism. In 2012, the FSA hit the bank with another fine for £4.2 million relating to a failure to keep accurate records of mortgage payments. Errors were also found in the way standard variable rates were applied. Confidentiality breaches were at the heart of another fine, this time from the Information Commissioner’s Office. Bank of Scotland repeatedly released confidential documents to a third party over a three-year period. Despite warning the bank of its mistake, the third party continued to receive details of mortgage applications, personal accounts, and other private details.
