    Dear Sirs,
    I would like to know why Santander assisted in the theft of £130,000 from my account and let the council buy freeholds in my name with my stolen money.They took my son into care with perjury so they could ‘prove’I was mental allowing the bank to act as executrix, only I live in a homeless hostel on government hand outs while the bank plays with my stolen shares, money and the council charge me council tax on the properties they bought with my stolen money that I have never lived in.
