I had thought I was alone in this dreadful mess but it appears many of us (all of us?) were misled by AIB. Having read so many similar cases above, I am angered by how AIB are now acting as there was clearly a problem. In my case, the adviser insisted that the investment be in tandem with a yen loan as part of the investment as it would make the investment more secure and reduce risk. I obviously wanted a safe investment and I took their advice to make the investment "safe". It turns out the investment was in euros and there never was a need for a currency loan. I have tried to discuss it with the people who advised me but no one would talk to me or return my calls. When I asked the customer service section of Bank for an explanation I was met with blanket denials that anything wrong was done. Another department of the bank is now demanding repayment of the currency losses. When I explained what had occurred they claimed ignorance and just made demands. What appears incredibly unfair is that there appears to me no way, without spending lots of money, of challenging them and making them own up to their mistakes and dealing with it fairly. What further concerns me is that they must be aware that they have got this wrong and are trying to cover it up, (there must be records of what occurred and is there not a duty on them?). For fear of sounding like a lunatic, would it be worth writing to the Government Minister in charge of AIB to get him/her to address this, as a lot of people were affected. Has anyone had any success in challenging them or gotten them to fix their mistake?
