    The One Show featured this on their tv programme and Facebook page this week, as the deadline is in 3 weeks' time. Apparently the site is designed for US citizens but UK citizens can enter the figure lost and ignore the dollar sign.
    Please be polite to OPs and remember this is a site for Claimants and Appellants to seek redress against their bank, ex-boss or retailer. If they wanted morality or the view of the IoD or Bank they'd ask them.

    Even though it possibly won't matter much now, as the deadline has passed unfortunately, people could have entered the USD equivalent (based on exchange rates) of the applicable amount lost.
