    Default Legal Beagles - About Us

    About LegalBEAGLES

    Who we are

    Our Team is made up of dedicated and enthusiastic individuals who are experienced in consumer issues. Most of them are fighting (or have successfully fought) their own battles against the major financial institutions.
    All Team Members are volunteers who provide support in their own time, and our services are free to members.

    What we do

    With our experience, knowledge and resources we will be at the forefront of the battles against unfair practices, whether they be from the banks or any other organisation that feels they can use unfair business practices to take money from our members.

    The site is developing all the time, with new and improved legal strategies and advice for the self litigating consumer. We can provide you with the tools to fight your own battles, or support you directly in any way that you need. We also provide referrals to other agencies where this is appropriate.

    We are currently exploring new areas of activity as well as building links with similar organisations around the world that are fighting the same injustices, and often the same global organisations.


    You can read all our rules and policies in the stickies at the top of our Using the Forum area

    There are specific areas for off topic discussion - The Lamp Post - and the VIP Members Area.

    While the above applies to all forums, the Stag's Pants forum in the VIP Members area is considered a Private Members Club; an Adults Only Bar and as such has slightly more lenient rules as the posts/threads are not for general consumption. Therefore, existing members should take this into consideration when signing up to Stag's Pants and should not enter if they are easily offended .

    Posts can be edited my the original poster within 3 days of posting. Following this time users will need to contact a Team Member should a post require editing.


    The Chat box is only visible and useable by Legal Beagle Administrators, Team members, VIP and Working Group Members.

    Excessive swearing, bypassing of the swear filter, abuse of other members or the site, or other sites, racist, vulgar and inappropriate comments may result in the facility being removed from the user immediately. The Team will give a warning where applicable.

    Comments made in the Chatbox will not be read immediately - and theres no guaranteed answer - if you need to contact a team member, admin or other site user please use the PM facility.

    History of the chatbox is stored for up to 24 hours and can be viewed by any user of the chatbox.


    The Private Message system is useable by all registered users of this site.

    Comments made in Private Messages can only be viewed by the sender and recipient/s of the message.

    Abuse of other members or the site, or other sites, racist, vulgar and inappropriate comments, spamming, bullying and/or sexual harrassment should be reported to the Administrators who may conduct an investigation and this may result in the facility being removed from the user immediately.


    The Profile Messaging system is visible and useable by all registered users of this site.

    Excessive swearing, bypassing of the swear filter, abuse of other members or the site, or other sites, racist, vulgar and inappropriate comments may result in the facility being removed from the user immediately. The Team will give a warning where applicable.

    If you wish to contact a member privately please use the PM system.


    If you have a grievance or issue with the Team, the Site, Admin, or another User and would like to discuss it please contact the Administrators.


    Administrators look after the nuts and bolts of the site and have ultimate say on things.

    Team members look after the site and its members and have the ability to unapprove unsuitable posts, move and merge threads and implement any moderation policy as required.


    VIP members have an area for themselves for posting things which are a little sensitive to be posted in the public part of the site - in depth work on claims and have access to a chat box which helps foster the community spirit we are so proud of on LB. Posts contained within this forum are strictly confidential and are not to be shared without the express permission of Amethyst or Celestine . The funding for the site comes from donations and subscriptions to the VIP area, and many VIP members are long standing and respected members of the site.
