  1. Hi James, We know how you feel,we had £800 taken in one month from our account in charges as my partner had just changed from weekly pay to monthly pay and its taken us about 8 months to get straight.Then to top it all my partner had to do jury service for 3 weeks and they don`t pay you until you`re finished so he had to dip into the bills money to pay for petrol and car parking,so again we are in dire straits.It will probably take us another 8 months or longer to sort ourselves out but we are taking ShAbbey to court now.Just waiting for the court date now.Keep at it and don`t gi
  2. They said it was a "gesture of goodwill" and were hoping it would end there and that we could settle it with this 50% offer.Obviuosly not going to accept it and will stand firm on claiming it all back.Thanx for all your help.XX

Their defence is that, and I quote, "We ask you to consider that it cannot be correct that Abbey cannot charge anything at all if you become overdrawn or do n
  6. You`re supposed to use the spread sheets but I downloaded one and still can`t figure it out, Help too please!
  7. Well done!!!.Glad to hear you beat the SHABBEY.My partner and I are just about to start the court case so sounds promising.Enjoy it!!!
  8. Have received 2nd letter from Abbey today and they state that "As a one-off gesture of goodwill.I would be willing to waive the last amount of charges that debited your account on 27th March 2006, totalling £385.00,in full and final settlement of your complaint. This will bring your account back into credit. Any future charges will therefore have to stand and no further refunds will be offered. This is my final resolution letter. If you are happy to accept this offer in full and final settlement of your complaint, then please sign the form I have sent you and return it." Goes o
