The Royal Bank of Scotland is to be investigated by the Banking Code Standards Board after a probe by tomorrow night's Panorama into debt-related suicides.
Panorama: The Money Trap (Sunday 2 July 2006, 10.15pm, BBC ONE) examines the case of Richard Cullen, a 65-year-old mechanic from Wiltshire, who killed himself after building up more than £130,000 of credit card debts. When Mr Cullen died he had 22 credit cards with several different lenders.
The programme reveals how Richard Cullen owed the Royal Bank of Scotland more than £35,000 through four different credit cards, although his annual income was just £15,000.
In November 2004, two weeks after being chased for arrears on his Mint card (operated by RBS), his credit limit on his Tesco Personal Finance card (also run by RBS) was increased by £1,000 to £7,700.
In January 2005 he was found dead in his garage through inhaling exhaust fumes.
Mr Cullen's four credit cards generated RBS more than £4,300 in interest and charges in the last year of his life – almost a third of his annual income.[...]
