  1. Congratulations Hedgehog Its a good feeling isn't it. Thanks for the info on donating. Regards Magic
  2. Hi all Can one of the mods tell me how to make a donation - as when I click the button at the top of the page it goes to paypal but there is no info in the - 'make payment to' box, i think that there should be an e-mail address or something. Also can one of the mods change my title to ***WON*** please. Thanks Magic
  3. Hi Wardyboy !!!!!!!CONGRATULATIONS MATEY!!!!!!!! Feels good doesn't it - I wish that the internet could project feelings as well as words. Once again - well done mate - really pleased for you. Cant be many more of us to go now. Regards Magic
  4. Hi Wardy Yes we did everything on the same day - if its not there dont be too gutted, I would expect it by the end of the week. I was going to send the letter today but no need now. I think that they are just snowed under with all the claims at the moment. Will keep watching your posts Wardyboy2 - good luck - but I have a good feeling that by the end of the week........£££££££££££££££££'s in. Magic
  5. Hi Wardy Have you checked your post today? I have just received a phone call from home telling me a letter from DG solicitors has arrived agreeing to pay me the lot back. Hopefully yours is sitting on your mat - if not it must surely come in the next couple of days. Heres hoping. Good luck Magic
  6. Hi Essayeffsee I won by default on 22nd and today received a letter from the solicitors agreeing to pay me the lot, I would send a letter to them saying that you have filed for judgement. They may then speed up a bit otherwise you could well be hanging around for a while like I was. Good luck - you will get your money. Magic
  7. Hi all **********HOORAY I WIN********** Just got a call from home - letter from DG Solicitors - standard rubbish about not accepting liability and due to costs etc..... etc.... They are paying the full amount to me direct into my account, today apparantly. Its not there yet but at least I dont have to send the boys in. Can I just thank everyone who has posted advice etc...etc... for all their help, I will be making a donation as soon as its in my account and will be sticking around to help the ones a little further behind. For those of you at the same stage as me I guess you are a couple of days behind - DO NOT WORRY - this works and you will get your money. Little do HSBC know they have a 2nd claim going in as soon as the first one is in my account. Good luck all and thanks again. Regards A very very happy MAGIC
  8. Hi all Ok folks here is my draft, please anyone advise on the suitability of this - Dear Sir/Madam I write to inform you that due to your lack of response to my letters dated 29th June and 17th July I have been left with no option but to file for a County Court Judgement against you Ref: XXXXXXXX (copy enclosed). As you can see judgement was granted and entered against you on 22nd August, and still I have yet to hear from you. I hereby give you 5 working days notice from the date of this letter to return the total amount owing to me of £XXXX.XX. If these funds are not returned to me in the time given then I will be left with no further choice but to issue a final warrant against you that will result in the intervention of bailiffs, and the damaging of your credit rating. I await your reply Yours faithfully, Magic Any comments welcome. Regards Magic
  9. Wardyboy I missed the post yesterday so it will go today - I am sending it to my branch - the same as everything else. It will end up in the right place eventually, I am also enclosing a copy of my judgement confirmation. I will copy and paste the letter here as soon as I get a few minutes spare, work tends to get in the way of these things!!! Regards Magic
  10. Cherry I wouldn't bother with the Data Protection letter if you can get your statements online - I didn't. All you will receive are exact copies of the online versions wasting you a couple of weeks. Just fire off the next letter in the process 'Preliminary approach for repayment' I think its called. This will save you a couple of weeks messing about. Regards Magic
  11. Hi again Cherry Right here goes - you DONT have to make 2 seperate claims just because they are listed differently. Just add them all up over the 6 years and you have your total amount that you are claiming for. Make sure you check the link that I gave you to see which charges exactly you can claim back. My claim was less than £5000, but as I understand it anything over £5k cannot go through the small claims court (can anyone confirm this?). My advice would be to go through your online statements and get your total first. If it exceeds £5000 then break your claim down into 2 seperate ones. Claim back the oldest charges first (upto £5000) then when that has been repaid to you, just start another one for the remainder. By doing this you will familiarise yourself with the process involved and hopefully be more confident about getting the 2nd amount back. However be warned that if you do take this option and make 2 seperate claims one after the other then the bank will probably close your account. Be prepared and have another bank account open with another bank just in case this happens. Mine has taken 2 months to the day and I won by default last Tuesday but have still not had my money back - others have had their money back after their first letter. There is no consistency to the timescale so just stick with it. Again there is loads of info on here so take a couple of hours to read a few cases and the FAQ's, but if you get stuck then just ask. Good luck!! Regards Magic
  12. Hi Cherry Go to this link to see exactly what you can claim for - http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/hsbc-bank/15518-charges-description-statements-please.html It sounds like you are claiming for 'TOTAL CHARGES' which is the same as I have claimed for, you can claim upto 6 years worth of charges at the moment (all of them). I would suggest reading the FAQ's section as everything you need is in there and I would start your own thread as well so that your progress can be kept/watched easily. Good luck Regards Magic
  13. Hughesh Personally I would just file for judgement - they have had ample opportunity to respond. Welcome to the 'won by default' club. Magic
  14. Hi Wardyboy2 Have you heard anything? Any ideas what we are supposed to be doing? I am going to send them another letter giving them 5 working days or I send the bailiffs in. What do you reckon? Regards Magic
  15. Hi all Not heard a thing after winning by default last Tuesday (22nd), so I am sending a letter today saying that they have 5 working days before I send the bailiffs in. I will keep you all informed. Magic
