BTW, R, you are right about "crimes". I am not just going to the FCA about this, I shall also be going to the police. Because effectively what Barclays have done amounts to theft. They have taken my money, as clearly evidenced on my own BoS bank statement, and are now saying that I still owe it to them.
Hi R, I am going to tell them that, since I live only 90 minutes away from Glasgow, where they are based, I want a face-to-face meeting, and I am not leaving the building until the matter is resolved. Regards, y
Total up all the crimes of Barclays plus your time, stress and expenses and tell them you are putting it in the hands of your solicitor with a view to claim those losses and compensation. Be vengeful!!!
Hi CP52, talk about utter incompetence from top to bottom. Do you, by any chance, recall my story from 12 months ago about the credit card fraud on my Barclaycard? It's not my main card and I use it only occasionally, so the total monthly balance has never been more than about £200. And yet, in November last year, within hours of my paying a legitimate bill at our vets in Lockerbie, I was "apparently " running up a bill for £4,500 with a plastic surgeon in Brisbane, Australia. And Barclays "fraud prevention systems" did not pick this up as anything at all unusual !!!!!!
I had dealings with Barclays a good few years back and incompetence seems to be a requirement for employment from the top to the bottom . Haven't went near them since and never will . Good luck
Yeah, CP2, you are right on both scores. I have the ignition turned on, waiting on the starting line, all systems go to belt away from Barclays just as soon as I ever can. But obviously I cannot do so until this utter fiasco is resolved. I have never known anything so surreal. The transaction is surely so totally simple, yet every time I have rung, whoever I speak to has to "go and talk to our technical team". What do these clowns do all day? Once the Options are finally, finally, finally, absorbed into my total holdings I am outa Barclays, never to return!
yayay , I presume you mean you wish you had never used Barclays to take part in the RI , surely you don't regret buying shares at 25p . Barclays list of wrong doings is possibly the biggest crime sheet of any Bank in the UK and their customer handling is abysmal.
Yesterday I filled out my form sent it off and paid my money, sent an e-mail confirming funds I transferred , this morning I received an e-mail acknowledging receipt of my funds and saying my shares will be issued shortly .
Even though the shares are yet to land I have every confidence they will and the process couldn't have been any easier .
I think it's time you and others told Barclays where to go .
If I aggregated all the hours I have spent on this over the past two years I reckon I must have wasted at least two or three complete days of my life. I wish to God I had never taken part in SGZ's 2017 Rights Issue.
I now owe Barclays several hundred pounds. As you know, they took monies from me, back on 15th October, for the Options due on both my Investment and ISA accounts. When (at long last!) they went to convert the Options to shares they have allocated the wrong amounts to each account. So that there is now a cash balance sitting uselessly in my ISA and my Investment account is seriously in debt and I have received a message from them asking me to take urgent action to remedy this. I cannot believe things can get any more ridiculous.
Glad they came through for you . I sent my money off today so hopefully !
I imagine the brokers are probably sending them off to Scotgold in batches as opposed to one at a time which could in some small way explain the issues some people have been having . We will probably see a few RNS's coming through shortly as the closing date draws near
My exercised options converted to shares today. They must have been in that batch the RNS reported issued the other day.
Have a good holiday if you can. A wee consolation........it's pXXXing down here too!!!
well CP52 - BBC post on the Reunion nugget.
""He added: "The hole in the middle could have been caused by a strike off a rock or glacier.
"One mineralogist thought it looked like an entry and exit hole that could've been made with a neolithic antler pick, which were used by farmers in the Iron Age."""
Additionally, that farmer could be a slave worker, working for the Phoenicians, or Greeks or Romans as well. Kept some for himself has to be considered. A souvenir. Guessing and brainstorming, he could have even left the doughnut and taken the bigger piece- anything theory is possible, we do not know.
Obviously these Ancients were after the visible gold, very visible gold in the Dalradian. Obviously the Medieval scholars from many religions and European monks copying old Ancient maps from places like Egypt, were creating fake news for the future. (or not?). Real maps, real wealth, real tribute plunder convoys manifests to places like Rome, real inventory reports of stored Roman wealth.
(The Tudors might have portrait artists, rather than Photoshop and Deepfake, but they did not anticipate X-ray analysis on doctored pictures). Monarchs like Richard III are well documented by visiting ambassadors as being cloaked in gold, including cloths of gold for bedding, before the New World was discovered.) Henry VIII was into Clothes of Gold summit meetings.
The Flodden campaign (1513) was financed by all the surplus gold found by panning. The Edinburgh mint and coinage stores were vast, well recorded.

p.s. did not Shylock post once, a long time ago that his father was a Geologist? I wonder if he knew anybody from the British Geological Survey c 1970? Who knows.
Hi RH,a wet Benidorm calling civilisation.I think it might be me that has tarnished with age.My old bones do not like the wet weather.
Maybe it's the silver that you used to ask about..............tarnished with age!!!
Not just Homer Simpson, or Crusties.
However I think Vfb1888 does not fully get it with Shylock. Shylock has to continue for several reasons.
It is real "Clink" and throw the key away stuff. Rack and the original London dungeons.
Multiple counts of perverting the course of justice
Deleting admissible evidence and meta data of, that could be used in child molester cases, rape cases.
Assisting terrorist groups against the UK government, help them evade capture, in several ways e.g. by deleting vital evidence. Protecting murders and violent criminals. Impeding the course of justice. Framing innocent people.
Multiple cases of Insider dealing by information captured by illegal and dubious means
Abuse of power and trust. Perverting the legal system and the criminal justice system.
Hacking the dead and dying.
Spinning things out, hoping for more witnesses to die and commit suicide. Taking incidents too far into the past that limitation laws create immunity and cases that cannot be heard for technical reasons.
Badly briefing the (un-bias) BBC and I also heard SGZ being as good as ****ged-off on BBC radio 4 Today. Hopefully the BBC (radio 4 - Today) will apologise and correct.
The list goes on
He and his friends have to continue. I do not see them stopping.

Bageo posted on ''the other place'' That the nugget might be the missing gold from the BPT.
Seen a few doughnuts on here over the years...
This story doesn't mention the finders age only the authors ,Mr Palmer 50.
"The finder brought the discovery to the attention of author Lee Palmer who was researching his book Gold Occurrences In The UK.
Mr Palmer, 50, said: "This is now the largest nugget in existence in the UK. When you look at it, it's doughnut-shaped."
I could believe the two years before telling anyone theory and I have heard Leon Kirk does talk a good game but it's still a nice lump of Gold wherever it came from.
D'ya reckon he got an idea from here then?
In a similar story, it was discovered in a Scottish river by a man in his 40s.
He kept quiet for two years before publicly revealing his incredible find.
Gold panning expert Leon Kirk said he was not going to get too excited just yet.
He told BBC Scotland: "Unfortunately the world of gold is very divisive. If someone finds a nugget it is not necessarily true.
"This has come out of the blue and there is no confirmed provenance.
"I would like to think it is real but it can take many months to establish if it is genuine and at the moment there is no proof."
No provenance says the expert
Good Old Barclays! All is forgiven. Thank you for not getting round to ever signing off my Options. I'll be able to use the same funds to buy more in the 30s !!
