I would be up for this, but need to get advice as to who to sue and if its worth suing as if its Iceland then they have no money at the moment. Come on IMF, impose so stability, give them a loan on provision they honour their debts

I support this initiative - at what point is it a go? Do we need a certain corum or should we have an online vote system acknowledging GPB100 Individual commitment. Once agreed we can approach a few QC's or equivalents to check interest, case potential/ strength and cost.


Where is the money and how can we at least get some of it back

Hi,

I don't have any legal contacts although I have lost about £170K not including business accounts, and will be willing to help as much as i can. This is very frustrating, as I have made several calls to the bank where i was explicitly told that the money is safe and that the bank was experiencing no problems, rather that they were in a stronger position than what they have targeted for in terms of being to meet their financial liabilities.

I gave notice just over 3 months ago on a 90 Day account for it to clear without penalty, only to realise that i could not transfer the funds after the bank went into administration.

I believe the Isle of Man government should step in, just like many other governments in other countries have stepped in and ensured the safety of the depositors money.

It is really hard to grasp and emotionally deal with seeing your lifesavings dissappear infront of your eyes.


Proof of holdings

From the discussion on the previous websites, there are a number of us who have no bank statements from Kaupthing. Assuming that the compensation scheme ever kicks in, does anybody have any ideas on how one might obtain proof of holdings with Kaupthing? We paid our opening deposit to Kaupthing a month ago, by cheque. In the past, the cheque would be stamped with the receiving bank's sort-code, get sent to BACS, who would process it and send the cancelled cheque back to the issuing bank. One could, in theory, get the cancelled cheque from the issuing bank. Is this still the case, does anybody know?

Has anybody other ideas on how to prove one's holdings with Kaupthing?


Cheques are still returned to

Cheques are still returned to the issuing bank for processing, and can still be retrieved (or at least a transaction statement can be). The fee is normally £2 or thereabouts.

I suspect the situation differs for customers of KSF IOM entity and the Kaupthing Edge IOM customers - with the likelihood that the latter in particular, did not receive paper statements for the transactions made. If you have copies of the online transactions that would be helpful. For those who wired money in by telegraphic transfer from other banks, I think you can produce records of that transaction along with the destination. In your case, if you have no printed copies of online account balance inquiry, getting your issuing bank to produce a record of check clearing with KSF-IOM may well be the only way.

Documentary evidence is the key:
Email exchanges with kaupthing
Bank statements showing the debit
Written confirmation from your bank that the cheque was cleared by Kaupting
Any other communications you hold between yourselves and kaupthing re your Kaupthing account

The IOM Dep Comp Scheme Coordinator will no doubt obtain copies of the ledgers from Kaupthing
