  2. hi all, thanks for the replies. we keep a monthly spreadsheet of what i have paid and what my wife has paid. it also keeps track of total paid and remaining balance. by my reckoning we have a 3 months left so i will phone scott and co after 2 and see what they say thanks again
  3. sorry, you are correct, it is one bill addressed to MR C and MRS L ****** just checked the last one.
  4. hi, thanks for the reply. the council tax bills come in to me and my wife adressed one for me and a seperate one for her (but they are both exactly the same) so i presume we are both liable for payment. andromeda411
  5. hi all, jut looking for a bit of advice. regarding scott and co, my wife and i are both paying on an earnings arrestment on our salaries for council tax. we received the arrestment for just over £5000. we are now down to around £1500. i pay more towards it cause i earn more but when will our respective employers be able to stop making deductions as my wife's employer does not know how much i have paid towards it and vice-versa. on my wife's payslip this month she paid her usual amount and it says amount outstanding £4100 but this does not take into account how much i have paid and vice-versa. does scott and co let our employers know when it is paid off? thanks
  6. well done IF crumble again. enjoy the cash best regards and well done!!!! andromeda411
  7. hi again, just remember to quote your plan number on the letter aswell. regards andromeda411
  8. hi there, no i did everything at one time under the plan number and i also had a loan account with charges aswell.but remember if you do it this way you still list the account numbers you are claiming the charges on but only one S.A.R,1 prelim and if needed 1 L.B.A. i had an offer of 50 % then i rejected that and they coughed up the full amount without going to court. i was told if i had gone to court i would have had to seperate the claim into three but thankfully it never went that far. hope this helps regards and good luck andromeda411
  9. hi there, i was in the same position but i claimed under the one plan number, but i was informed if it got to the court stage i would have to seperate them into the individual account numbers. you are the same as me with a current account,loan and credit card. thankfully for me it did not go that far. i got full settlementthis week and that was claiming just under the one plan number. they did offer 50% but i rejected that and about 5 days later they offered full settlement. this is my thread if you want a look. http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/intelligent-finance/69358-r-subject-access-request.html regards and good luck andromeda411

  11. hey, yep in the contact us section of the if website. i copied and pasted my rejection letter in to the message area and sent that. you also get a reply saying it has been delivered. then i went to post office and sent letter. it took them about 3-4 days. regards craig
  12. hi laddie, if is anything like my resolution letter they will be offering you 50% of what you have claimed. use IF messaging on their site to reject it and send letter aswell and they will cave in like they did with me. regards and good luck andromeda411:)
  13. hi all, just received reply from ICO regarding bank of scotland and they say in their reply that a SAR is no needed to reclaim bank charges. what does everyone else think of this.please see below e-mail from ICO 6th June 2007 Case Reference Number RFA####### Dear Mr ##### Thank you for your correspondence dated 21/05/07, regarding your request for information from the Bank of Scotland. Is a subject access request necessary in order to reclaim any unfair penalty charges? No. Information from credit card/bank statements should not be needed in order to reclaim any unfair penalty charges from a financial institution. Following an Office of Fair Trading (OFT) ruling about ‘unfair penalty charges’ relating to credit card accounts, the number of individuals making subject access requests under the Data Protection Act 1998 for information held as part of credit card statements has increased significantly. Although the OFT ruling only relates to credit card accounts a number of individuals are also making subject access requests for information relating to other financial services before attempting to reclaim any penalty charges associated with them. Many financial institutions are struggling to respond to these subject access requests within the 40 calendar days permitted. We are aware of this and are monitoring the situation closely. What’s the best way to reclaim penalty charges? The Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) is the most appropriate organisation to assist you when seeking to settle disputes about unfair penalty charges with the Bank of Scotland. The FOS can be contacted on 0845 080 1800 Monday to Friday from 9am-5pm. The (FOS) was set up by Parliament as an independent, free service for settling disputes between businesses providing financial services and their customers. Complaints about unfair penalty charges fall outside the remit of The Information Commissioner’s Office. This is why we are unable to directly assist you in seeking the repayment of these charges. What will the Information Commissioner’s Office now do with your complaint about the failed subject access request? We acknowledge that in pursuing the unfair penalty charges a valid subject access request was made to the Bank of Scotland and although the information requested may not be needed to recover any unfair penalty charges, financial institutions are still required to provide it. From the information you have provided to us it seems unlikely that the Bank of Scotland have complied with their obligations under the Data Protection Act on this occasion as they have failed to provide you with the information to which you are entitled. We will therefore be writing to the Bank of Scotland with the details of this complaint. We will ask them to ensure that they provide you with the information you are entitled to as a matter of priority. Furthermore we will ask them to take any steps necessary to ensure their future compliance with the Data Protection Act. What happens next? We would now recommend that you contact the FOS if you wish to begin the process of reclaiming any unfair penalty charges. If when we contact the Bank of Scotland there is any doubt as to whether they received the subject access request you sent to them we may need to contact you again. However, in most cases, and certainly where you have been able to provide us with proof of postage or receipt for your request, we would not expect to need to contact you again and you should await the receipt of the information to which you are entitled from the Bank of Scotland in due course. If you would like any further clarification having read this letter please contact our Helpline on 08456 30 60 60 or 01625 545745 if you would prefer to call a national rate number. Yours sincerely, James Cooper Case Reception Unit The Information Commissioner's Office regards andromeda411:)

  18. hi there, i have an account with BoS and if the halifax is the samethen when you log in to your on-line banking there is a tab to click on that says "statements and letters" you can then go back two years. but i will point out that this is only available if you are paper free an do not get statements or letters sent to your home address. you need to change preferences on your portfolio page to get online statements. also if you select it now it will only start from your next statement. regards andromeda411
  19. it's always worth a go if they do not come up with offer then carry on and file your summary cause. it,s no loss to you just to the bank as if you fiile you will get to claim howards little extra 8% and all your fees and costs. regards and good luck andromeda411
