ksfbetter.jpg Following our calls for tales of expat credit-crunch hardship we've been getting quite a few emails about Kaupthing Singer Friedlander, (Isle of Man) bank from British expat depositors who fear they have lost money, following the bank's collapse. More on that here.

There was also mention of banking and the Isle of Man in the Chancellor's Pre-Budget report today. Alistair Darling spoke about problems presented by Crown Dependencies

If you've experience of this issue do get in touch, it's a story we're looking at.

UPDATE I There are more comments from troubled KSF(IoM) savers on the follow up blog post here

UPDATE II: Many thanks to those of you who left comments below, particularly those who've taken the time to write at what must be a very difficult time indeed.

I'm continuing to work on the story along with my colleague Ray Furlong.

We're particularly interested in finding out more about events prior to Statutory Instrument 2674 coming into force. If you can help us with that we'd be interested in hearing from you. You can email us at ipm-at-bbc.co.uk
