FSCS Payout from the World Spreads Collapse

Continuing the timeline that I had begun in my Better Spread Betting book, I can now confirm that the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) has now sent me a cheque for the money I was owed by the now-defunct spread betting company World Spreads. They didn’t owe me very much — less than £1000 — but it’s nice that it’s finally back in my own pocket. If you haven’t received your compensation yet, I assume it’s “in the post”.
