  1. Hi, I ended up with an overdraft as a company I was working for managed to trick me into giving them my card details, allowing them to take £3500 out of my account when there was no money in the account, ending up in an unauthorised overdraft... This was 3 months ago. I was lead to believe that id be paying back £225 pound a month (roughly), on the 29th of each month. Now that I checked, they are charging me interest and some other card charges, totalling in 3 extra charges on the 3rd of every month, adding to £75 on top of the overdraft, I only have a debit card? One charge is £
  2. After the recent changes to unauthorised overdraft fees/charges, i believe every effort should be made to force the banks into repaying the money they have squeezed out of their customers, especially Lloyds. The fees/charges were disgraceful, £10 a day for a maximum of 8 days and then the interest on top, also a charge for being overdrawn was applied, basically there were months i received almost £90 in charges for being merely £20 overdrawn, it's downright disgusting that these banks have been allowed to get away with this for so long. I tried on a few occasions to arrange an over

  4. Hi I had a current account with Lloyds, opened 2002. I stopped servicing this account in 2015, with an overdraft of £1,900. The account was assigned to Cabot 9 months ago. When I was notified of this assignment I wrote to Cabot to verify that they had the rights of the account and were in a position to request payment. I requested from Cabot copies of the original agreement I would have signed when it was set up, the terms and conditions, a full statement of the account, the notice of assignment and the default notice. After a long wait they have written back stati
  5. Hi All, Thank's for taking the time to read this. I know there's tons of information out there regarding such matters - and after much research, I think have a pretty good grasp of what needs to follow, but I'd really appreciate your advise or any input you have! The low down: 2012, low point in my life, lots of debt (I know, I've had my spanking). I have a perfect history for over 5 years now - so it's essential I avoid a CCJ at any cost! The debt was a current account / overdraft. It was defaulted in late 2012, on my credit report, it's showin
  6. Hi, Hoping someone might know where I stand on this but I have a feeling I won't have a leg to stand on. Here goes my situation, Discovered today my account was over its overdraft by £471. In a complete panic I rushed to the bank to get a statement only to discover over 100 transactions from Amazon in the last 2 days. Turned out my 13 year old son had used my card and proceeded to use it for in app purchases. I have phoned hsbc to see how I stand on this they state that unless I get the police involved there is nothing they can do (which obviously I don'
  7. Hi All Lowells have just offered me 50% off a £5k debt on an overdraft from 5yrs ago. I have a letter and also on their system it shows the 50%. I can pay either in full or in part by Direct debit. Are overdrafts harder to defend due to not needing a CCA? Or os the opposite true and it's harder for them to go to court with? They say this won't remove the full debt from my file. This is what they say: Note: If this account is on your credit file and you opt to pay the 'Discounted Balance' your credit file will be updated to show as 'Partially Satisfied' o
  8. Hi all, Hope this is in the right place... With the new Halifax overdraft charges I am seriously struggling as my OD is almost £3k I would like to know if there is a letter or anything I can send them to offer them a sum every month and to stop the charges from accruing while I am paying it off? Any help much appreciated. Cheers
  9. Hi, I've not been on this site for a while!. Does anyone have any experience with the PRA Group? I have a balance of £1297.80 from an old overdraft with Halifax/Lloyds TSB. The original default notice from the Halifax was 17/8/2011. I have been paying the PRA Group £5 per month as a token payment. PAR Group have now offered a measly 10% discount in full and final settlement. I've recently come to an agreement with another DCA and that was nearly 50% discounted . In the past I have offered to pay 30% of the debt to PRA Group but they have declined. The debt
  10. I have a default of £2,976 with Natwest. £1,176 of which is made from fee's from when I went over my overdraft limit and then couldn't afford to pay enough money back to the bank to be able to get myself back under the limit. I accrued the overdraft while at Uni. This was a student account to start of with. The first time I went over the limit was in May 2011. My owed balance went up from £1767 to over £3000 in the space of 8 months. Even though I complained to the bank that this was spiralling out of control and I didn't know what to do. They just

  12. Dear All, I've read numerous threads on here of people in a similar situation, and everyone seems to know exactly what to do. Me? Nope, I've turned to jelly and don't know what to do.

  13. Hi, I stumbled across this website and I hope you can help me. I'll be so greatful if you can. I have a defaulted Lloyds account which I last used in 2007, and in oct 2013 it defaulted. The overdraft had grown from about £250 to over £1600. I received not a single letter... .up until 2013 when I got one from a credit collector demanding I repay it. I have been arguing it is statute barred for some time now, and they have supplied me with statements showing no activity since 2007 and a steadily increasing debt. It defaulted shortly after maxing out and defaulted.
  14. Hi, I had a previous bank account (but not old enough to be SB) with HSBC which was overdrawn by a large amount. Negotiations to sort things out with HSBC broke down and I've not heard anything from them for 3 years, and have since moved. I came home yesterday to a claim form (dated 29th August) from MKDP LLP who now appear to own the account. I presume they have traced me, but I have had no prior correspondence from them. The amount claimed is a lot higher than the overdraft was, so will doubtless include countless fees. The particulars of claim are 'T
  15. Can anyone please advise on what I can do about a HSBC overdraft. I have recently lost my job and currently unemployed.A few bills, mortgage, credit card and a car loan will very quickly eat up what little savings I have. I have sent a template letter to the loan and credit card asking for 6 months interest free grace and I am hoping that they will agree. My HSBC overdraft is currently at circa £2,200 - the limit agreed is £2,000. I have £1,000 in a savings account. Should I write to HSBC and explain the situation and then use the savings for this months mortgage and food.
  16. Hello, I went 29p into my unplanned overdraft in the early hours of Wednesday morning. I got money in this morning and the 29p was taken out. I am wondering if Halifax will charge me for 3/4 days worth of unplanned overdraft fees?
  17. Hi guys, Really feeling a bit as though I'm in over my head and could do with a bit of help from you. Without going into masses of detail straight off the bat, the background is:- In 2005, I got into difficulty and my bank wrapped up all my credit card debt, overdraft, and loan into a 'managed loan', total of which was circa £10K. Fast forward to 2011, I was again in trouble, had an accident in August 2010 in which I broke both legs, which was the start of the slippery slope and to cut a long story short, I defaulted on this loan, of which there was £3193.00 outstanding.
  18. Hi guys, hoping to get some advice - if anyone has a bit of spare time to read through and make any suggestions it would be very much appreciated. Please see the info below for the current situation: Claim issued by Cabot Financial (UK) Limited Date of issue – 8th Feb + 19 days = 26th Feb, + 14 days = 4pm Friday 10th [revised - dx] Particulars - "Monies due under current account overdraft. 1.THe claimant's claim is for the balance outstanding under a Bank account facility Yorkshire Bank agreed to maintain for the defendant.

  20. Hi, just after a bit of advice really, I received a claim form last week for a debt of £300 or so that has resulted from bank charges and interest on a Nationwide account, the account was in credit when a charge took it overdrawn, further charges and interest then grew the negative balance to around £300 until the account was closed/suspended in 2011. As the basis of the debt is from charges that may/may not be illegal? (probably for missing a direct debit) - would there be any point in contesting the claim? I know its not alot of money but I am trying to deal with my historic d
  21. Hi Hopefully someone can give me some advice concerning the above. My husband had an account with the Natwest even before we were married in 1981. When we married he added my name to the account. Over the years my husband has used this account himself and I have my own bank account. My husband unfortunately passed away suddenly on the 19th of January this year which has been really traumatic. My husband had a £2,800 overdraft with them but I have been told that because the account is in joint names the account will go into my name and someone will write to me (basically debt col
  22. I returned my partner's account to zero early last year. Unfortunately there was a pending charge, and my partner didn't use her account or check the balance again until late last year. It had ballooned into a large amount of overdraft from that one pending charge. Barclays were unwilling to generously be sensible about it, and my partner wouldn't accept the terms of my offer of help, which was that I'd return it to zero (for the nth time) if she closes her account, as Barclays don't deserve our blood to suck on, and she doesn't need a spare account. Since then I
  23. Hi, I have just been issued with a claimform from Robinson Way Ltd, I am considering fighting the debt for two reasons I would like any advise on whether I have a leg to stand on with any of my reasons and if anyone would recommend or recommend against doing so. 1. The debt of £1573.05 is originally from an approximate £50.00 unauthorised overdraft from Lloyds bank, the first reason I have for fighting the debt is that it is mostly made up of overdraft charges that since receiving them where found to be illegal (If you remember back in 2011 ish everyone was claiming their ov
  24. Hi All, I am being chased by Cabot for overdraft defaulted 2008. I have received the SAR from the OC and there is nothing in the SAR to show terminated/default date etc. There are no copies of any letters sent to me and no notice of assignments. Should these documents be included in a SAR request or have they been shredded? There doesn't appear to be any agreements either for the bank account (opened originally in 1984) I am just deciding if I should resume paying as have just come out of a DMP.
