‘Ten years ago I was a victim of fraud from a member of my family who took advantage of me by using my credit card. They took out loans in my name of over £50,000. It was very stressful and I ended up with depression and then lost my job.’
Although Nirmay* told his credit card company in 2014 about the fraudulent loan, it was only after he contacted the Law Centre for help with his case that they finally agreed to write off the account balance and sent a goodwill payment. They have also now reimbursed him for the payments made, plus interest.
‘Getting this money will make a huge difference to me after ten years of struggling. I was put in a situation I couldn’t get out of until I contacted South West London Law Centres. They helped me out and all the members of staff worked extremely hard for me throughout. They used so much of their energy and got me out of the dark hole I was in and into the bright light.’
