  4. People need to be a little circumspect with regards to this morning's announcement. This judgement is merely about whether the banks charging T&C's can be assessed under the fairness regulations or not. If the judgement says they can be assessed under the regulations, the banks may appeal against this, and we're into another round of court cases. Assuming these still go against the banks, only then can the OFT assess the charges for fairness. And this assessment will then have to form part of another legal case (more time, potential appeals, etc). The point I'm trying to mak
  5. To be honest, whilst that was probably not a nice letter to get, it could have been a lot worse. This looks like early notification of the outstanding amount. If, as they've said, they've suspended your mobile then they possibly wouldn't have been able to call you or text you, so a letter was probably their only option. It's better that they warn you of potential termination charges now than simply applying them to you with no notice. And they have said they're willing to talk through options to deal with the outstanding balance, which you yourself admit is a little late. I
  6. The title of the thread has been changed, nicsussex. Originally, it did in fact intimate that it was the LSE that anticipated victory. Hope this helps.
  7. The Stock Exchange isn't anticipating anything, Alan. The report is a direct quote from Hall Advisory Services. Now, as Hall Advisory Services happen to be bank charge claim chasers, you can kind of guess what their take is going to be. Just goes to show you must never trust what you read.....

  9. It's not propoganda. It's lazy journalism. It goes like this: "I don't understand the issues, so my audience won't. I'll simplify it, and if it turns out I'm inaccurate, what the heck, I've filled some seconds of airtime / inches of newsprint in any case."
  10. Started at 10.30am and still going on now. What could we read from this?
  11. Bookie - ready, aim, fire!!! Well done, I'm soon to start chasing after these chancers - your story is inspriation to us all. bc
  12. That's the one - thanks elsinore.
  13. Afternoon all. I'm sure I remember seeing somewhere that banks had been officially advised to tread carefully in recent months re: closing down the accounts of complainants. Could have been the FSA, OFT, BBA giving the guidance, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Could sone kindly soul point me in the right direction? TIA
  14. Why pay someone to do this for you. Hate to big up the British Bankers Association (that's a rarity for this forum!) but they have a dormant account finder service you can use for free. Go to this link for details: http://www.bba.org.uk/bba/jsp/polopoly.jsp?d=144 Hope this helps.
