I was wondering the same thing - did he get his money out of IceSave in time?

Don't think so - I think he said they reversed the transaction or something.... :eek

I feel really sorry for him - all those years' earnings in danger of being lost. I don't think the UK government will let the savers down, but it's still a huge concern. I've got some sizeable funds with Nationwide, who are one of the more conservative institutions... and so I was shocked to see that they were of the 8 lined up to get assistance from the £500bn UK 'bailout'!

Unpredictable in every way
And forever more, that's how you'll stay
That's why, Disco, it's incredible
That someone so Unpredictable
Thinks that I am Unpredictable too.....

They reversed his transfer out of Icesave, same here but for a lot less money. No news yet on when you'll get your money, I suspect the powers that be are preoccupied with other tulip hitting the fan now.

But HSBC was forced into it - although it does not need the money. The idea is that everyone stands together to restore confidence.

Its working a treat... :suicide:

He was the author of his own problems, but I wish him luck. It just shows that financial education should be provided in schools to get people off to a good start. The first thing they can teach is the limits of deposit guarantees and not to trust foreigners. :happy

Hello :smile . I'm not too stressed about it all now, Tuesday night though was not good, didn't sleep or anything, constantly refreshing my ICESAVE and Natwest accounts to see if the £ had come in, ringing Natwest at 2:45am. On a day to day level I knew I could deal with losing the £ as I would of had to, but I knew long term I would of been beating myself up over it it for years.

Thank god the government kicked up a fuss, IMO my £ was out of ICESAVE before the annoucment (cleared on the 6th anoucement on the 7th) but they illegally held on to it. Just got to go through the compo scheme now, hearing different stories from 6 weeks to 4 months to get the cash back, even talk about the accounts being transfered to Northern Rock.

I know many people feel we shouldnt get all the £ back as we knew it was hi risk and rates were high, these are both things I knew and for a couple of months knew I had to sort it but with one thing and another I never got round till it. I've done alot of beating myself up over it since Tuesday and I know I was stupied and lazy and I should of known better. I made a big mistake but have defo learnt a lesson that I effect the rest of my life. I will though as a result when I get the £ back make a couple of £k donation to charity.

Deposit guarantees have been well publicised. I just don't understand some people. He obviously has too much money, otherwise he would have been prudent and split it across various banks. :sick

My advice would be to put your money in property. Much safer !! :happy

Same thing isn't it? Pathetic need for attention, of any kind.

Would be pitiful if they weren't such ******!
