LONDON – A group of small businesses has been suing Clydesdale bank as well as its former owner National Australia Bank for alleged misrepresentation over small business loans. The lawsuit filed by small businesses highlighted that banks raised the interest rate on fixed-rate loans by hidden margins. While representing the group, RGL Management allegedly stated that banks have been facing deceit, misrepresentation, and breach of contract by banks.

A total of 140 small businesses comprising 2,000 small companies issued the first claim against the banks. However, the legal claim doesn’t carry any value. On behalf of small businesses, RGL Management has brought complex lawsuits against banks. Augusta Ventures, a litigation funder has been supporting the lawsuit against Clydesdale bank. Many litigation funders have been fighting for bank disputes on the condition of some part of compensation if they manage to win at trial.

Bad credit small business loans have been on the rise as there are plenty of options available to get loans for small businesses. Also, the affordable interest rates make it possible to get a loan on easy terms. Apart from banks, many online sources are offering small business loans even to the entities with bad credit.

Garbhan Shanks of Michelmores LLP, the law firm which represents RGL, has said that it is hopeful to get a substantial amount of compensation for their first multi-party claim against banks. However, CYBG, the owner of Clydesdale and Yorkshire bank said that it will respond to any claim against its banks on a strong term after analyzing it thoroughly.

North Carolina to Target Robocalls and Scammers With Penalties

Phone prankers usually mask their real number to pass robocalls to consumers. To take action against them, North Carolina lawmakers passed legislation on Monday to make it mandatory for callers to use their real name and number of the business they are representing. The legislation bill passed by 45-0 in the state senate. It was passed by the House last month and now it is waiting for the sign of Gov. Roy Cooper.

Telephone scammers usually block or trick caller ID to send spam calls to people. They make their calls in such a format that they are from a local number or from a family member. When the bill will be signed by the state Governor, people who do so will be fined up to $5,000.

Federal law has already declared the practice of using fake numbers illegal in all states. But this bill will give states’ authority an extra power to go after the scammers. The bill also would apply on fake messages and mobile posts.

Consumers can also enroll with the Federal Trade Commission’s Do Not Call Registry, which stops companies to send telemarketing sales calls to the consumers. And if they violate the regulation, consumers can complain against them. Alternatively, consumers can detect the identity of spammers with the use of Glasscaller that identifies the suspicious caller.

Tim Moore sponsored the bill in State House Speaker, and said that these fake and robocalls are at a top concern for his constituents. When he went out campaigning last year, he heard about more people getting scammed phone calls.
