  3. Yesterday I phone the C&G mortgage company on 0845 603 1637. This is a customer service number. I gave my mortgage number and within 1 minute I was told that I would get a refund of £125. This could be either deposited into my account or a cheque would be mailed to me within 15 days. That was it no hassle, I did not even have to justify my position. Below is an extract from - thisismoney.co.uk that shows the fee rise history. FEE HISTORY In 2003 there was an exit charge of £100 plus a deeds release fee of £50. These were combined and rose to £180 in June 2004 and then
  4. The prime minister has a new site where you can create and sign established petitions. There is one for penalty charges at: http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/refundcharges/ I don't know if it will help but if all 100,000 + of us signed it would create some pressure.
  5. I am quite certain that you will all get settlements offered before your court date. I am bound by a confidentiality agreement so I can't discuss in detail but I am OK. Unfortunately I can't fill in the claims settled area as it is too specific and would identify me to a "lurker" from the bank ! Will make a donation when the funds have cleared, now on to sue the ******** at NatWest !! [MODERATED: That kind of language is not appreciated on this forum and could be seen as libelous]

  7. When I last spoke to Keith Jeremaih he admitied that he was very unlikely to turn up at my local county court, a 4hr drive from London. I spoke to him twice in two days and stressed how settling my rather modest claim would reduce three cases from his workload. He has said that he would write to me with an answer asap, not willing to make an offer over the phone. I stressed that I am anxious not to delay and will send in my allocation forms on monday if i have not heard from him. I am now feeling that I should not call him again. he seemed OK but he is a solicitor and he is on
  8. Called Keith Jeremaih today. Stressed that I was not intimidated and would welcome sitting down in court with him, myself and the judge and discussing the legalities ! When i suggested that i felt that it was unlikely that he would travel over 200 miles to my local court he agreed. Admitted that thay can't chase individual cases round the country ! Has promised to call tomorrow with his response to my ask for full payment including fees and interest. I will be sending the 3 allocation questionaires in if no positive result ! Seems OK, told me that he was VERY busy !!!
  9. text of my letter sent to Paul at customer relations offering chance to settle. [Dear Paul Summerfield, Thank you for your letter dated 11th May offering me a full refund of MY money. The sum of £216.00 for the charges. Unfortunately you took a too long to respond to my letter before action dated 20th April. I have already filed a claim at county court to recover the amount of the charges. My claim number is: 6QZ29224 at Northampton County Court. I have recieved my Acknowledgement of service from Nicholas Hartigan. His contact email is: nick.hartigan@barclays.com phone 020 7116 65
  10. i also received the acknowledgement of service from Barclays today and signed by Nicholas Hartigan. His email is: nick.hartigan@barclays.com He is going to learn real fast !!
  11. As you know barclaycard offered me a full refund as response to my LBA. However it arrived 1 week after I had filed in court. I have just recieved an Acknowledgement of Service showing that Barclaycard intend to defend the claim. What makes me smile is that it is signed by Nicholas Hartigan, his position is a Trainee Solicitor ! He is going to learn fast !! My dillema is what to do now. Ask Paul Summerfield of customer relations to increase his offer of full payment by £12.00 interest and £30.00 so that it covers my costs and then drop my claim. or contact nick hartigan on
  12. Offered full refund after i filed ! Sucess. Barclaycard have offreed me a full refund of the charges £216.00 without any conditions such as confidentiality etc. My dillema is that I have already filed with the court, so i have incurred a fee of £30.00. Should I accept the offer and absorb the court fee myself, continue with the court action or write back asking for the extra £30.00 ? I am thinking of writing back and asking for the extra £30.00 to drop the case. If it does get to court then I can show that I have been very reasonable. I have three other court filings f
  13. Recieved reply from barclays 3 days after my LBA deadline. A very weak response pleading for more time. I am filing today with moneyclaim. Letter read: From Karl Voller, Customer relations manager. " I apologise for the delay in replying and thanks for your patience whilst we continue our investigations. Unfortunately we remain unable to respond fully to your concerns at present, however we will contact you again as soon as possible and certainly no later than 7th June." Basically hoping that I will go away. Not going to happen so now thay have to pay more money to me.
  14. Noite this extract from my calaim letter to barclaycard, especially clause 3:17 & 3:18 talking about double charging. No-one seems to have picked up on this very powerful argument. That is that the credit card companies are charging HIGHER interest rates to people they believe will be a higher risk and incurr charges for default. Then charging those same people penalty fees for default in addition to the risk premium on the interest ! I would love to hear that debated in a court of law ! {I draw your attention to the following quotes taken from clauses contained within the
