    Default Fizdup V The Bank of Scotland

    I have requested a list of all the charges that have been levied against me by the BoS-tards (someone elses joke that, but I like it!)
    So far I have recivieved copies of all my bank statments back to 2004 when the halifaxicon took over the BoS and the others are on their way, apparently.

    I would like to claim back charges made on my account from 1997, but I believe that the law only allows me to claim back to 2001.

    Has anyone successfully claimed back charges from more than 5 years ago?
    Is there an argument that the Banks have refused to reveal what the breakdown of the charges is and therefore have been decieving us all along, or is that just wishful thinking?

    I'm not sure how far back you can claim as I wrote to HBOS and asked for statements for the last 6 yearsicon and received them from June 1995 onwards. Don't know whether this means we can claim this far back or what but I dare say we will find out.

    I have added up all the charges made against me and the total comes to 708, though only 128 of those charges were made within the 5 year limit.

    Following the "step-by-step instructions" FAQ I have not requested any interest on top of the charges.

    I have decided to go ahead and ask for the whole amount, nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?
