Contact your bank - they should be able to tell you who it is - if you dont recognise it get them to refund your account and they will send it back to the Originator...they will soon be in touch!!

Under the direct debit guarantee scheme, you should be notified in advance of how much and when the money will be taken (and by who). If this doesn't happen, contact your BANK and ask for a full and immediate refund under the direct debit guarantee scheme. The reason in your case is that you have no idea who this is from and have not been notified as required. If the bank try to say it isn't their responsibililty (some do ) you can report them to BACS who will soon sort them out. Post back if you get problems.

Have you bought a car from Yes Car credit?
Yes insurance is a division of Provident Financial, who also do door step loans at astronomical interest rates.

GET ON TO YOUR BANK ASAP!
Lord Sugar will see you now.

Hi

I work for a bank and as previous posters have said it is Budget Insurance Services Limited.

They underwrite for lots of different insurance companies.

Best thing to do is contact your bank and ask for the telephone number of the company and the reference they have taken the payment with (the ref is normally the policy number).

If they are unable to supply this info ask for the dd originator number and ill check it for you.

Default Post office car insurance

I've tracked it down as the Post Office, they should be abit clearer especially when they just take it out in weird chunks.

I contacted my bank (Lloyds) and its so far taken them 15 days to track it down. Bloody useless.

Hi guys,

I've just had "BISL Bacs Account First Payment" come up. I googled it and found this forum.

I recently changed my insurance, but I changed to M&S, and I reconise their DDs. I havent brought anything from the post office, so I have no idea what this is!?

Any ideas?

M&S don't do Insurance - they only 'badge' it through their Financial Services operation (which is no longer owned by M&S but by HSBC). Their house Insurance is done by Aviva ..... if you look at your car policy it will tell you who you've actually signed up with.
If you want to test the depth of the water .........don't use both feet !

Ah phoned up Budget - M&S insurance is through them after all. I just thought it was strange because the other DD with them (I have two policys) showed on the statement as M&S Insurance bla bla... so why the other one is suddenly BISL I dont know...oh well at least I know what it is lol.

Same again, googled, and found you all. My insurance is thru IBuyEco, who also seem to be based at Orton in Peterborough. I get the impression all these companies are using the 1 intermediary to produce insurance packages.

I had the same thing in my account. I was having £15 taken out every month then I had two incoming payments of £25. I googled it and ended up here. After looking into it, it is home insurance done through the Post Office. Bonus is that they incoming payments were the cashback I was expecting to wait 9 months for.

So if you have recently set up finance or insurance it's probably that...if not....get in touch with the bank.
