Treasury Committee seeks update on Bank Signature Forgery Campaign

15 October 2020

There have been allegations of potential criminal activity occurring at banks, whereby home repossessions and other such documents are not being signed by the authorised signatory.

As a result, the previous Treasury Committee wrote to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and National Crime Agency (NCA) in July 2019 requesting that they engage with the Bank Signature Forgery Campaign to review their evidence and investigate as appropriate.

Rt Hon. Mel Stride MP, Chair of the Treasury Committee, has today written to the FCA and NCA to request an update on their progress, specifically:

  • The FCA’s and NCA’s engagement with the campaign
  • The FCA’s and NCA’s work and findings so far
  • The regulatory breaches and offences that may have occurred, and any regulatory or legal arguments that are being considered
