CUSTOMERS who have lost money as a result of their dealings with a Darley Dale investment firm are being urged to claim for up to £50,000 in compensation.

The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) has recently declared A & J B Limited, Darley Dale, in default.

A declaration of default means FSCS is satisfied the firms are unable to pay claims.

This enables customers to apply to FSCS for compensation if they believe they have lost money as a result of their dealings with these firms.

Mark Oakes, Head of Communications at FSCS said: “We have already started paying compensation but we are encouraging anyone else who believes they may be owed money to contact us if they have not yet applied for compensation.”

The scheme does not charge individual consumers for using its service. FSCS has paid over £26bn to over 4.5m consumers since its inception in 2001.

The FSCS Initial Contact Team can be contacted on 0800 678 1100 or 020 7741 4100 or by email at enquiries@fscs.org.uk. Further information about the FSCS is available on its website at www.fscs.org.uk
