Though his story highlighted the human impact of the tracker mortgage scandal, it is just one example of thousands.Dublin-based solicitor Gary Matthews, who represents a number of clients impacted by the scandal, said he is finding on average that people have been overcharged in the region of €20,000. One man who was €18,000 in arrears discovered he was actually owed €55,000 by the bank.The Hub Ireland, which has been supporting Ray Flavin, has also come across a number of cases of people affected by overcharging. It has referred up to 80 people in total for a forensic account check and only one came back clear, founder Byron Jenkins told TheJournal.ie this week.How do I know if I’ve been overcharged?In a countrywide review, more than 15 lenders – including Bank of Ireland – were found to have charged up to 15,000 customers more expensive rates on their tracker mortgages.If you were on a tracker rate and then moved to a different rate, like a standard variable rate or a fixed rate, you may be affected. You may also be a victim of the overcharging scandal if you were on a tracker rate and your margin increased.If you are one of these people, your bank should contact you. The banks are still in the process of identifying affected customers and getting in touch with them, so you may not receive a letter until later this year.We’ll explain later on what your options are once your bank has contacted you.If you have not been identified by your bank as a customer who has been overcharged, that does not necessarily mean you haven’t been. Some customers who are not even on tracker mortgages have discovered overcharging.“They were all overcharging,” The Hub’s Byron Jenkins claims. “If that’s the case, your bank has broken their contract.”With some people, that means they’ve pushed you into arrears. They’re taking money that could have contributed to stopping the collapse of a business. At a basic level, in cases like Ray’s, they’re taking food off your table.If you are worried that your bank has been overcharging you, you can hire an accountant to do a forensic check of your accounts. This will cost you money, and you do not need to get this done – it is an option that is open to you if you are concerned, or if you have money to spare at the moment and are curious.If you have received a letter from the bank to tell you they’ve overcharged you, they will do this review of your account for you, so wait to hear back from them.How much will that cost me?Jenkins and other volunteers at The Hub Ireland refer people who have mortgage trouble to an accountancy firm in Dublin called Murlyn Accountants. In these cases, they are checking to see if the bank, which is usually pursuing the customer for arrears, actually breached the contract itself by overcharging.For a fee of €100, the company will do a brief assessment of the account to see if there is overcharging. Once they identify an anomaly, a full forensic check costs a further €300.There are a number of other forensic accountancy firms across the country that offer this service and prices vary. The Hub also lists Interest Rate Check Ireland on its website with a price of €250 for an uncertified check. This can later be certified for around €100.On its website, this company says that 75% of the mortgages they have analysed to date raised issues and possible errors.Another popular choice is Bankcheck, a firm based in Northern Ireland, though the price is higher. The fee for a thorough forensic assessment of your accounts is just over €1,000.What will they need from me?In order to do the assessment of your account, they will need:Your loan offer letterAll of your mortgage statementsThe TRS applied to your mortgage accountTRS stands for ‘tax relief at source’. You can find out what TRS was applied to your account by contacting Revenue.What if the bank has sent me a letter to tell me they charged me the wrong rate of interest?It is likely you will receive an initial letter informing you they have been overcharging you, but not telling you exactly how much they overcharged you.Once the bank has reviewed your account, you will receive a follow-up telling you how much they owe you. The bank will say this amount is being refunded to you and will most likely offer you compensation on top of this of 10-15%.The advice from solicitor Gary Matthews is to cash any cheque they send you, and don’t be afraid to spend that or any other money they refund you. That is your money.However, cashing those cheques and spending that money does not have to be the end of it. It does not stop you from further pursuing the bank for compensation.“Banks are not compensating people for the losses they have incurred during the time they were being overcharged,” he explained.“What I mean by that is the loss of opportunity to use their money. The loss of opportunity to go away on a holiday, or the loss of opportunity to spend money on their children or the loss of opportunity to spend money on that business they were always thinking about.”People don’t understand the consequences the overcharging scandal has had on their personal lives. The pressure that this brought to bear on relationships. What we have found is that a large percentage of the cases their personal relationships with friends and families were affected. Some relationships did not survive, people had to go to family members and ask to borrow money to keep up these payments and that was a huge source of personal embarrassment.He referenced one case in which a bank had a possession order on the home of a man who was €18,000 in arrears. It turned out after an assessment of his account that he as actually €55,000 in credit.“Not only did they set aside the order, they’ve reimbursed him his €55,000 and we’re pursuing them for consequential losses. He was on the verge of being put out of his family home.”Read: Tracker mortgage scandal: Widower charged wrong interest rate may now lose family home>More: ‘I was living in fear’: Kerryman thanks supporters as fundraising campaign passes €40k> Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Apr 8th 2017, 10:00 PM https://jrnl.ie/3329426 23 Comments By Michelle Hennessy Image: finance image via Shutterstock Saturday 8 Apr 2017, 10:00 PM Here’s how to check if your bank overcharged you on your mortgage – and what to do next Up to 15,000 people are affected by the tracker mortgage scandal – but even people who were never on a tracker may have been overcharged.

first_img Mentioned Above Apple iPhone XS (64GB, space gray) Phones Software Sci-Tech Tech Industry Politics 3 Josh Miller/CNET Law enforcement can’t force you to unlock a phone with your face, fingerprint or other biometric features, according to a new court order. US Magistrate Judge Kandis Westmore denied a search warrant request that sought permission to use biometrics features — such as FaceID on an iPhone or Iris Scanner on a Samsung Galaxy — to unlock and search devices at a residence in Oakland, California. The court order, issued Jan. 10, was reported earlier by Forbes. “The court finds that the government’s request runs afoul of the Fourth and Fifth Amendments, and the search warrant application must be denied,” wrote Westmore. “Today’s mobile phones are not comparable to other storage equipment, be it physical or digital, and are entitled to greater privacy protection.” The Fourth Amendment says that people have the right to be secure in their houses against unreasonable searches and seizures, while the Fifth Amendment says nobody should be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself. Many of the details in the case, including the authorities overseeing the investigation, are sealed. The Justice Department didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.   The court order does say the suspects allegedly used Facebook Messenger in an attempt to extort money from a victim by threatening to spread an embarrassing video. This isn’t the first time police have turned to biometric features to unlock a suspect’s device. In September, FBI agents compelled one of six Ohio men charged with sexually abusing children and creating child pornography to unlock an iPhone X by showing his face to the phone. Biometrics were interpreted as not covered by the Fifth Amendment in this case. The agents found chat logs detailing interests in child pornography.  Follow the Money: This is how digital cash is changing the way we save, shop and work.CNET Magazine: Check out a sample of the stories in CNET’s newsstand edition. $999 Comments See It $999 See It Sprint Best Buy See itcenter_img CNET may get a commission from retail offers.

first_imgNo related posts. They were known as the “hottest pinups in the ’90s,” broke all sorts of records as Playboy cover models, and are household names in Hollywood. But in the 21st century, Shane and Sia Barbi, known as the Barbi Twins, have become some of the most outspoken animal rights activists in the world.On Wednesday, the identical twins, now 50, will appear on LA Talk Radio’s “Jana of the Jungle,” hosted by Rainforest Radio’s Jani Schulz and guest hosted by your humble servant.The Barbi Twins, who now refer to themselves as the “Kitty Liberation Front” and are forming a new political party in the United States called the Green Tea Party, had so much to say during the pre-recorded interview that the broadcast will be extended into a three-part series on the weekly environmental talk show, which airs Wednesdays at 11 a.m. PST and 12 p.m. in Costa Rica. The program streams live and will be available for download at www.LATalkRadio.com, and airs locally in Costa Rica on 960 AM .Shane and Sia Barbi seemed everywhere in the 1990s, appearing on numerous top-selling covers of Playboy, in European fashion shows for designers like Chanel and Jean Paul Gaultier and on the pages of Redbook, Cosmopolitan and many others. Their names are mentioned in the same breath as people like Marilyn Monroe, Farrah Fawcett and Cindy Crawford.Today they use that name recognition in a tireless fight to stop the mass slaughter of animals globally. They volunteer at animal shelters, fight puppy mills and lobby for major legislation to stop horse slaughters and regulate pet food safety. They helped put a notorious kitty-killer-turned-likely-serial-killer behind bars, and rescued animals from natural disasters like the devastating hurricanes Katrina and Rita and the California wildfires.The Barbi Twins also have their eye on Costa Rica, which issued an international arrest warrant that landed their conservationist friend Paul Watson, captain and founder of Sea Shepherd, behind bars in 2012 in Germany on what the twins call “trumped-up charges.” And when they go after an issue, Sia and Shane Barbi don’t mince words.“In every mass slaughter, whether it’s Romanian stray dogs, the U.K. badger call or the Canadian seal hunt, … people are good-hearted and they don’t want this,” Shane Barbi says, cutting her sister off in mid-sentence. “But the grubby government keeps it going because somewhere they get a profit. And anyone who opposes it, they will be instantly arrested or [portrayed as] a domestic terrorist, because it interferes with the government profiting.”“It doesn’t matter if you know Paul Watson or not. Always get skeptical about someone they make such a big deal about, because governments unfortunately … love to profit from and exploit them. It’s very rare that they are out there protecting the real victims,” she adds.The twins can talk for hours about the dolphin slaughter in Taiji, Japan, or the horse slaughters in the U.S. “Every mass slaughter is cloaked behind culture or tradition,” Sia says, adding that, “Dolphins are intelligent animals, probably more intelligent than my sister.”But one of their main messages is that citizens need to force change by voting. “There is power in votes,” says Sia.And they have a message for Costa Rican voters facing an upcoming presidential election in February 2014: “Forget petitions, start acting, not reacting and see what you can do to participate,” Shane says.Adds Sia: “If we get some of the people in Costa Rica to open up and say, look, you have pride, and you’re embarrassed about these bogus charges, get this guy out [referring to Costa Rican Fisheries Institute President Luis Dobles] and say with your voice that I’m voting for truth, for free speech, for what is right.”Tune in Wednesday for the first of three shows.  Facebook Commentscenter_img The Barbi Twins pose with one of countless animals they’ve helped rescue.

first_img Florida’s housing market continued its upswing into the new year, according to the latest housing data released by “”Florida Realtors””:http://www.floridarealtors.org/.[IMAGE]Statewide closed sales of existing single-family homes totaled 13,679 in January, up 11.7 percent year-over-year, the group reported. Meanwhile, pending sales–contracts signed but not yet completed or closed–for existing single-family homes rose 31 percent.Prices also rose: The statewide median sales price for single-family existing homes in January was $145,000, up 12.4 percent over January 2012. In addition, sellers received an average of 92.2 percent of their original list price, according to Florida Realtors chief economist Dr. John Tuccillo, who added that he was “”particularly impressed with the rise in percentage of list price received by sellers.””””This year started out strong for Florida’s housing market,”” said Dean Asher, 2013 president of Florida Realtors. “”Home sales continue to rise, mortgage rates remain near historic lows and the inventory of for-sale homes is lower than it’s been in years.””Asher added that the time it takes to sell a home is dropping; the median days a home spent on the market declined about 15 percent for both single-family homes and for townhome-condo properties.However, he noted that “”overly restrictive credit requirements remain an obstacle for many potential buyers, who find it difficult to access affordable financing options.””January was also sunny for the townhouse-condo market. According to Florida Realtors, a total of 6,670 units sold statewide, up 2 percent compared to January 2012. Pending sales for townhouse-condos increased 17 percent.The statewide median price for townhouse-condo properties was $112,000, up 18 percent year-over-year.According to Florida Realtors’ data, January marked the 13th straight month that statewide median sales prices rose on a year-over-year basis for both single-family homes and townhouse-condo units.The group also reported that the inventory for single-family homes stood at a 5.6 months’ supply in January.””This can encourage other potential sellers to come forward, thus easing the market’s inventory crunch,”” Tuccillo noted. “”But, despite the progress of Florida’s housing market, it’s still being held back by the difficulty consumers have in accessing credit.”” February 21, 2013 398 Views in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing Florida,Florida Housing Market Beats Winter Chillcenter_img Share Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Existing-Home Sales For-Sale Homes Home Prices Home Sales Housing Supply Investors Lenders & Servicers Processing Service Providers 2013-02-21 Tory Barringerlast_img read more
