  2. I'm in a similar position, except I've already gone through MoneyClaim. I haven't heard anything from anyone for a long time - what can be done, if anything?
  3. Will do. Have had another "goodwill" letter in the mail today, not sure what for but it was for £28. I think not.
  4. Received a letter from NatWaste today - probably the fastest ever response I've had from them, other than for reports of bank charges. The letter talks about the OFT and legal stuff, and they're waiting for the findings before dealing with the "complaint". Their goodwill offer of £150 still stands for the next two months. I'm thinking I have to write them a rejection letter now?
  5. Submitted a MoneyClaim just now - total to claim back is £329.34 before 8% interest. Running low on funds.
  6. Couldn't have put it better myself.
  7. Thanks for the votes of encouragement; always appreciated. Today is the 2nd of July, almost two months since the initial letter. I've received two A4 letters from NatWaste, both with goodwill offers and some leaflet: one was for £28; the other £150. Given the total is around £300 now, I think it's time for one more shot at the title.
  8. I'm back for an update. I had some problems with using this site in Opera for some reason, but something compelled me to try again using Firefox. By the way, I did get the court fee back eventually - it came a week after the court's imposed deadline. So, this time I'm claiming a mere £271.46 - all for charges incurred while waiting for NatWaste to get their act together last time. I've also had a few more recently, even though said account has been closed for months. I sent my first letter on the 8th April. It took three weeks for NatWaste to respond; they said it would take
  9. Two weeks ago I finally closed one of my accounts with NatWaste, having moved to the Cooperative Bank for my main account. I'm considering using Abbey for general banking perks, such as converting loose change. Had my court case this morning, and it was over in the best part of... TWO MINUTES?! As expected, NatWaste didn't show up. They hadn't even sent any documents they were going to use. The good news is I won my court fees back, which weren't paid through their large cheque. The bad news is, to get the other bank charges back I'd have to start a new claim. This could take a
  10. Special Update Hello people, I started a new thread because this is related to, but is not (yet) a success. As some of you know I had been successful in claiming back over £1000 in charges from NatWaste, which took around six months. Right after the win I wrote to NatWaste, requesting the charges incurred while they took their time to respond. This was back in late December and I hadn't heard from them since, so I wrote to the court telling them what happened. So the big news is, I have a court hearing on March 15th at my local court. The total being claimed is around £200 this
  11. Thank you very much, I couldn't have done it without you guys' help. There are also more charges to claim since the start of the MoneyClaim, but I'm grateful for what I've won anyway - over half of the overdraft paid off! We'll see how the rest of this goes.
  12. Ladies and gentlemen: the match has been stopped following an admission of defeat on the defendant's part. I got a letter this morning via Special Delivery, beginning: "Although our client maintains its position as stated in our letter of 25 October 2006, and is confident that it will be successful at a final hearing, its legal fees will almost certainly outweigh the value of the claim, and as such, our client will take a comercial approach to such claims. "Accordingly, without any admission of liability, our client is prepared to settle this matter in full to prevent incurring any
  13. Okay, it's now the 11th December 2006 and I haven't heard a peep out of NatWaste, Cobblers or the court. What do I do now?
  14. Sounds like a bank to me! If they have to pay interest on the charges too, I don't see why they would do that.
  15. Well I wish I had a fat, juicy cheque to report for the gap in time. Not so - there's been even more stalling on the defendant's part. Received a letter from the court yesterday, who have given NatWaste/Cobblers until 4pm on December 5th to file and serve an allocation. I don't know what that means, but if they don't do it by then their defence is struck out.
