TELL A DEBT COUNSELLOR YOUR MONEY WORRIES
Piles of one pound coins
Do you have a question about debt?

The Banking Code Standards Board is to investigate The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) after Panorama investigated debt-related suicides.

The programme heard from a whistleblower who broke the banking industry's code of silence.

A key decision maker with one of the main high street banks, she claimed that high street bank lending practices put profits before customers at every given opportunity in order to push borrowing.

Panorama: The Money Trap was on BBC One on July 2 2006 .
