"Unsafe financial practices"

A review of Selective Marketplace by Jo Maitland written on Wednesday 6th of December 2017


This organisation owns the brand name Poetry and Wrap. These brands market their merchandise through catalogues and online shopping. Poetry has a shop in London. The telephone number for Poetry is redirected to an organisation called we answer. They manage telephone orders and process payments. I learned this today. I also learned that my bank account payment details were being kept in a manual, in a “safe place “which a supervisor had the key. I also learned that all the supervisors had access to this “safe place “ and therefore have access to my bank account details. I believe this to be Extremely Unsafe. I had to phone back to ensure that my bank account details would be shredded. The supervisors I spoke to would not give me any telephone contact numbers for Poetry Head Office. I don’t believe there is a Head Office. I found the information for Selective Marketplace by googling. Easy and not rocket science. I have rung the number of Selective Marketplace, answer phone on both occasions.

I am instructing my bank to ensure that “Poetry” can never access my bank account again.

I will be discussing my concerns with the Financial Services Ombudsman..
