DCS IOM are they all Idiots?

Any suggestion gladly welcomed. I am having some trouble with the IOM DCS managers, they keep writing to me and my wife via snail mail, over land and water, saying they have sent out a cheque via registered post and it has been returned. They follow this by saying that they have also attempted to contact me via my registered email address, but cannot do so, would I please contact them. I have done this via email and they have acknowledged this and my banking details, yet still the write and say” Please accept our apologies for the distress you are experiencing in the delay in receiving your outstanding payments. Please be assured we are expediting the authorisation as quickly as possible however the timing of this is outside our control. As mentioned in my earlier email I will contact you again as soon as the payments have been delivered to our bank for processing.” Yet they are still sending me even more land mail and still no payment of the outstanding amount due since December 2014. Are they all simply idiots?

As disclosed at Kaupthing’s Creditors’ Meeting on 31 May 2012, Kaupthing has been working in close consultation with the Informal Creditors’ Committee and their respective advisers on a potential composition proposal. Whilst good progress has been made, a number of outstanding matters, including some that are not within the Winding-up Committee’s control, are still being resolved and it will not be possible to launch a composition proposal in the third quarter of 2012, as previously targeted. Kaupthing is currently working with its advisers and the Informal Creditors’ Committee towards a launch in the fourth quarter of 2012, assuming satisfactory resolution of the outstanding issues and no new issues arising.

Today's News from Iceland

Does anyone know if Iceland's apparent pledge to make good losses in Holland & UK has any bearing on the IofM situation. Since we have been told by all governmental bodies that the UK represents IofM in matters relating to international affairs it is hard to belive that this is anything but good news. Does anyone have a view?

Depositors in IoM shafted by UK Govt over money frozen in KSFUK

2009-01-23 (All day)

MANX FOR NOTHING
Depositors in the Isle of Man branch of bust Icelandic bank Kaupthing Singer Friedlander may not elicit huge public sympathy, but there are non-tax dodgers among them who have been well and truly hung out to dry by a British government that has long encouraged banking in the crown dependencies.

Just before Kaupthing went under in October, the Isle of Man branch forwarded £530m of its customer deposits to the bank’s London branch. This did not give the depositors any protection under the UK financial services compensation scheme, because their cash had been deposited on the Isle of Man; and the money is now available to pay off the banks’ UK, rather than Manx, depositors and creditors instead.
The £530m transaction followed discussions, which remain shrouded in mystery, between the British and Manx regulators. Soon afterwards, Kaupthing collapsed and the Treasury froze its assets here in the UK, insisting that none of the deposits by then over here should be returned to the Isle of Man.

When it comes to negotiating compensation from the Icelandic government, the depositors are now reliant on the British government, a task that the Whitehall department responsible, the Ministry of Justice, has palmed off to a Treasury notoriously dismissive of the depositors’ plight.

Last month MoJ minister Lord Bach nonetheless insisted everything was fine. Asked at a parliamentary committee hearing whether he was sure “those [Isle of Man] depositors’ interests are now safeguarded, insofar as any depositors’ interests are safeguarded in the UK?” he replied categorically: “Yes I am.” But a swift bollocking from the Treasury must have followed, for by the time the transcript of the hearing appeared a footnote had been added: “Note by witness: I am satisfied by the steps taken by the UK government in the interests of the people whose deposits the UK regulatory authorities are responsible for.” In other words, not those in the Isle of Man. For IoM depositors who might have got their hopes up, this translates as: you’re still shafted.
