ed1237 Vs Amex in Amex Posted February 22, 2007 I am helping a friend claim back for both thier blue and green Amex cards. Both accounts are closed as he paid them off 18 months ago. Prelim was sent to which he received a response this morning. In it they state they have changed thier default charge on credit cards to £8 and charge cards to £10. They then go on to state that this represents the cost of administering default accounts. This took effect from July 06, but they were not prepared to backdate the decision. This is the first letter I have seen that openly admits they were over charging before. Anyway LBA sent today as 14 days now up.
