Thread: Help please

  1. #1

    Default Help please

    Hi after sending my second letter (lbaicon) demanding repayment of 965 I received a phone callicon from the Bank of Scotland offering to increase their goodwill refund from 120 to 325. Now I refused over the phone and she said oh well your bad luck I will send you a copy of how to contact the financial Ombudsman service. She said - 'please understand that we are not prepared to refund all of the charges that you have incurred on your account over the last six years.' I told her i would be going to the small claimsicon court.

    Can any one advise me what has the financial ombudsman got to do with this - she also mentioned that the oft statement about bank charges being unfair only related to credit cards - is this true. What do I do now?

    at least you`ve had offers lol, im at the claim stage (papers served on the 9th) and i`ve had nothing, not even an acknowledgment hehe, but andrea is right, stick to your guns and you`ll soon get it all back.

    The finanancial ombudsmen just deal with complaints, its a lenghy process and not worth dealing with, court is the way to go now.

    Good luck
