  2. Hi tim, my situation and amount with abbey were very similar to yours, managed down overdraft claim around £3000 and with the debt management dept. I made a claim, they acknowledged and defended. the solicitor didnt agreee with the amounts so he offered me 50% of what he thought it was, I declined. after going through statements i concluded that while the figure wasnt correct, neither was theres, my final claim was £2250. The solicitor agreed to settle in full for the revised figure and my cheque is on its way. So go for it! Pink_Fairy
  3. Thanks Dave, I appreciate that. Many Thanks to you personally as it was the advice of yours i saw on the mse site that first made me realise i could actually get these charges back.
  4. yes...all of them! ive been sending letters back and forth for about a year - made the claim sorted in about a month and cheque is on its way - can hardly believe it myself!
  5. well turns out i didnt have to pay for it, they settled first! not at all brave just fed up with the abbey making the rules up as they go along. I took a risk with the £120 fee - am just lucky it worked out.
  6. Well done - although I think you are rather brave taking on Abbey without first at least reading the FAQ's. thanks but why do you say that about the faq's?
  7. there was some dipute to the amount i claimed for so after checking my records the new figure was £2250.58. Settled in full today. Am very pleased with the outcome and very grateful to this site for help and support
  8. all sounds good miss muppet, almost too good to be true but if you have iit in writing they cant go back on it. they obviously realised your not too be messed with!
  9. mine was a joint account and i have settled in full today. in letters i put both names and sigantures and emails i addressed from me and in brackets i put 'also on behalf .........' good luck with your cliam
  10. I certainly do! Abbey have submitted a defence on 3rd March. I recieved the court allocation questionnaire this morning, along with a very nice letter from abbeys solicitors offering.......50%! I am delighted - not going to accept of course but it means they are staying true to form and i will have my money back soon.
  11. thanks miss muppet, it's really seeing people like yourself win against the banks that has made me so determined. I have been trying to get the money back since July 05 by writing them letter after letter, I was so thrilled to find out the charges were not only immoral but illegal as well!
  12. i think abbey let the money go out because they were thinking of the money they could make out of the charges. they seem to do this a lot. your not on your own - im in the process of claiming a lot of charges back from abbey (as are many others!). youve found the right place anyway, they added to my anxiety and depression and made me very ill so im determined to get a full refund out of them.
  13. ok done it let me know if i missed anything, thanks
