Martin,
I've been searching all over the MSE site for your contact email details and this is the nearest I can find so apologies if this message is inappropriate. I would like to put some ideas for a new book past you so if you could get back on my email I will fill you in with all the info. Thanks

Martin, How do you intend to hit your targets given to you by MS? You say the site will remain the same in ethos so how do you plan to hit them?

Default If you're defrauded by your Mortgage adviser when you apply how does that effect..

.. you.

A friend was allegedly defrauded by their adviser when they applied for a mortgage.
They applied for a product that had the survey included as many mortgage product did back then. The lender they choose offer this aspect as one of their main USPs as a matter of fact.

Allegedly the adviser omitted to outline this clearly

During the application the adviser took payment for a valuation survey although the only survey conducted was the valuation by the lender. This was the inclusive survey they, the lender, offered anyway. Records are kept by the surveyors detailing who instructed the survey valuation.

It has come to light that this has happen to a number of parties now!

Is this the next PPI scale discovery?

If you're advised by a party that gain a placement fee payment from the lender for providing said advice and who was a qualified party too. Where does the blame elevate to if this party defrauded the mortgagee.
The Lender?
The Adviser?
The Packager?
The Packager's malpractice insurer?
The Adviser's malpractice insurer?
The Lenders Insurer/s?
Or all the above?

Once the fraud is proven through transaction history/record such a scanned copies of the cheque/s used to pay the supposed valuation company. What would the next steps be?

MSE can you help what could be 1000's of mortgagees, some repossessed, some struggling and some just cheated...

Regard

Why does MSE still promote Amazon ?

I would have thought that the recent tax evasion revelation would have been a deal breaker.

Martin, why are you ignoring the fact that it is St George's day today yet every other British (and some non British) country's special days are recognised. Disgraceful!

With respect, St George's Day is always on this date and perhaps next year it could be marked a little earlier on in the day. It appears that is possible as it happens with other occasions.

You go around and ask everyone about their assets and inheritance?

in any case commission is for cheap comparison sites - mse is a bigger entity, this site only gets royalties from all businesses and companies using this site as their platform for more customers, a little like Amazon, play.com, qbid etc

I thought MSE was different from other sites and was 100% in the interests of the consumer, but maybe that has changed since Money Saving Supermarket go their claws on it.

The Cheap Energy Club is not always offering the consumer the best deal; e.g. SSE 0 cashback with the Cheap Energy Club, 46 with TopCashBack - the old MSE would have advised the consumer to use TopCashBack.

I understand the site needs funding, but see no reason why it can't be open about how much commission it's making form the Cheap Energy Club. Otherwise it's no better than any other cashback/comparison site.
