Alberto Perez says he had to sleep on the streets after his credit card was cancelled.

 

A man has claimed he has been forced to sleep in abandoned buildings with rats and cockroaches on holiday in Thailand after his debit card was cancelled in error by a Scottish bank.

 

Alberto Perez was on a two-month holiday on a Thai island when he discovered his debit card had been stopped. When he contacted Bank of Scotland customer, he was told it was due to a new card being sent out to his home in Edinburgh while he was away and that the old card could not be used.

 

Mr Perez, 42, who works in front of house at a vegetarian restaurant in Edinburgh, says he is now working in a restaurant in Thailand in return for meals and has nowhere to stay for the remaining two weeks of his holiday - forcing him to sleep on the streets and in disused buildings.
