my TA pay since june has been paid into the wrong account without my knowledge. i normally give my payslips a cursory glance to check ive been paid the correct amount but never check the actual bank details as i have had the same account for over 20 years However after doing the RMQ in september i was expecting a substantial amount in my bank account and when i received my payslip i assumed i had been paid and began spending. I realised too late that it had not appeared in my bank account. I do online banking so do not get statements through the post. As soon as i realised there was a problem i raised it with my Company clerk who informed me first of all that i must have another acount. I dont. she then stated i had changed my bank account details in may. I hadnt. she passed it up to the PSAO who then attempted to threaten me by teling me if i continued with my complaint SIB would have to be brought into it. I said by all means bring them in as i wanted the money i was entitled to. as 2 weeks have passed it now transpires another soldier with a similar sounding (but different spelling ) name had given a change of bank details form on the very day my account details were changed by my unit admin. The PSAO says he has contacted Glasgow and they have passed it straight back as its the units responsibility not theirs. They have again tried to pass the buck to me but i have done nothing to cause the situation. i have now been asked by the PSAO to go to the bank that received my pay and ask for my money back. I have responded by saying in the real world a bank will not release money to anyone who cannot prove its their account. furthermore i should not have to do this. this is their fcukup not mine. ive asked the PSAO how long its going to take until i get my money and he says he doesnt know as hes never seen this happen before. so where do i go from here. im literally out of pocket about Â£2000, am into my overdraft and being charged for it. i dont earn a lot from my civi job and need this money not least for my daughters christmas presents. in 12 years ive never had a pay issue like this or heard of it happening.
