Declan Purcell was tired of his bank charging him massive fees, so he took it to court and won by default when the bank didn't show up. When the bank refused to pay, he gave the bank a taste of their own medicine - he sent in the bailiffs to seize the bank's assets!
When Royal Bank of Scotland refused to refund £3,400 charges that Declan Purcell believed he was owed, he sent in the bailiffs.
Stunned customers at his branch of RBS watched as debt collectors seized four computers, two fax machines and a till filled with cash.
The branch manager was told that the items would be sold unless RBS came up with the money owed to Mr Purcell. ...
Mr Purcell said: "I think the bank was pretty shocked when the bailiffs went in. But my view is that this is exactly what they would have done to me."
