The Endowment Mis-selling Debacle - one of the UK's worst financial scandals

Gail McEwan from Scotland is planning to mount a nationwide campaign for justice on behalf of hundreds of Scots, allegedly missold mortgage endowments by solicitors.

She has been awarded £700 in compensation by the legal services ombudsman, after the Law Society of Scotland bungled her own complaints about a policy she was sold by a Glasgow firm of lawyers.

However, she still has a shortfall which she wishes to be made good.

She plans to pressure MSPs, and the Scottish Executive, for fresh legislation which would give consumers who were missold endowments the same rights of redress as customers of financial services firms.

The Herald has the full details here.

I wish her the very best of luck.
