This number is your unique number and when doing any Court search or writing letters you must quote this number.
If you look around the room you will see some computers = go put your number in and ‘see’ your filling come up, now that’s the fun part.
No to frighten, but the Banks are watching these events and know how many people are suing them. As of March 2013 there are more than 500 of us. You have just joined an Elite Club.
