  1. Everyone is being a bit harsh on you Dejavu! You must be really angry - I know I would be - but even though the truth hurts - it could have been put more tactfully MB and G&M! A guest came to my house and parked outside - we are residents parking and she stood just inside my door to deliver my daughter, and in the few mins that it took, the traffic wardens managed to put a ticket on the car without us noticing! In our area there is two hours allowed inside marked bays - but the lines have all been worn away - my friend paid up straight away, the advice I got here was to fight the ticket
  2. http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/oft-test-case-updates/126399-oft-test-case.html that is the thread that I am following or at least trying to! Its very long and goes off topic quite a lot - but over all it keeps me up to date...I think!!!!!! Hope that helps? - now, go and get a cup of (redbush!) tea and settle down for a long read! Nice to see you here again.............................Darling1:p
  3. IT used to cause me imense trouble when my ex was ordered in court to pay me meintenence for the kids and it used to be taken out of his account and then took 5 days to arrive at mine too late for the council tax DD....I used to ask who had the money in those 5 days and who got the interest on it? certainly my ex didnt and neither did I - they never told me the answer to that - but I ALWAYS got a charge on the DD being returned - and the council always got snotty over it........
  4. yes it seems that you can obstruct your own gates! (the car is to large to fit into the victorian wide ally way laughingly described as off street parking in the property details) and there is a single yello line ac cross the gateway, and a notice saying that you cannot park on the yellow lines between 9-5 mon-sat.. Like you said PT2537 she should appeal against the ticket for parking on a piece of missing yellow line...anyone on this site would - but some people are too damned "nice". She paid up the same day over the phone, but I will direct her to this site and to your comments and hopefu
  5. uhhh???? Actually they would probably love us to close it LOL - they stopped making money out of us when I WON against them last year!!!
  6. Wow Dave! Very True! That is exactly the problem now - its all gone too far ..... - last weekend a friend was collecting my Daughter and was having a small natter in my hall the door 1/2 open - when she got out the "parking ambasadors" as we call them in Salisbury (well I actually call them another unprintable name!!) gave my friend a parking ticket that pointed out that she was in a parking permit zone and on a yellow line....well you can park outside our house for up to 2 hrs and as for the yellow line it wore out months ago and there is NO YELLOW LINE! But she paid the fine immediately! s
  7. I find that hard to believe Pen!!! LOL Sue x:p
  8. You have a manager ????????? - I was told at my branch of Nationwide they no longer have a manager?? so you can no longer demand to see the manager! But if anyone bites me on the bum whilst i'm there...I shall know its not the manager!
  9. Funnily enough I was wondering if the OFT case goes as I hope it will.....will I be able to claim for the charges all the way back to '84!!!......without the X's co-operation? Dont think that he will want to "help" me to win LOL:D it was a joint account and we must have had a whole load of charges from then to 96 when we divorced!....
  10. Well my old timer story is set in the 80's...........my son was diagnosed with leukaemia, and my husband (now the x) was not managing our account very well - for the obvious reasons..we were all over the place, I had stopped work, we were travelling all over for treatment and the bank manager called him in to say, please dont worry about the account - that LLoyds (yes Lloyds!) understood and that when things seemed a bit more settled we could sort out our finances. True to their word we did not have to even ask - just take what we needed and they covered all our bills etc. My son died and wit
  11. Wilkinss208...is the bos - royal bank of Scotland and when did you put in your claim -?? I am building up a whole lot of charges at the moment at the HAlifax and I would liket to make a claim - not sure if I should start out claiming now or just wait?
  12. I thought that the main point was the fact that banks are charging an enormous amount for this so called service and then charging when you cannot afford the charges that they have imposed! This is not just about the fact that some people are unfortunate enough to get into difficulties, and if we were all fortunate enough to be masters of our own destinies most of us would choose not to use banks AT ALL.... we do not choose to do so - we are payed that way - peolpe have benefits payed into banks - we are made to have DD's or pay more for services - you have to have a good credit score to bu
  13. Think that rather depends on your age!! Doesn't it?? I dont think I want to be doing everything for my kids forever!! LOL:p The point I was making is serious though....the bank was prepared to accept the argument that it couldn't be unauthorised / as they had indeed authorised the transaction via his debit card in Tesco, last year......they could have just told him to go away! They did actually have a "service" that would have been completely free to use - but at opening of the account that was not "offered". Obviously that would not have made them any profit at all... so by giving yo
