Hi wife and i,

 

Further back in my thread i mentioned, that i was overdrawn by £84 due to bank charges, the bank wrote to me and said if i never cleared this, they may close my account on the 7th August. I had included these charges into my claim and as the money is due to go into the account either today or tomorrow, would've cleared these charges. I do feel like they are being sneaky, if they were going to close my account or intended to why didn't they do it on the 7th.

Have a read of the bulletin because there's useful info in there. It's odd to close an account over such a small amount, so it must be retaliatory. Contact the bank and tell them that you will inform the court that they have denied you access to the payout, and therefore the claim is not yet settled unless the account is reinstated today - also tell them the the FSA will be informed. If nothing is done today phone the court before it closes and inform them of the state of play, then put it in writing.

Hi wife and i,

 

I just phoned the bank and asked whether he has sorted it out yet, manager sais he has been busy with customers, but as soon as he has dealt with the customer he is with now, he will find out whats going on and phone me back before 4.00pm. Obviously the court closes at 4.00pm, so i phoned the court and told them the bank has closed my account and therefore has denied me access to payment...the lady told me well they will have to send you a cheque...and my advice is to phone the bank and ask them "how do u expect me to get my money if you have closed my account".

She was not very helpful, but i told her i was telling her what the state of play was.

 

It seem the customers in the bank are getting priority, so if he hasn't phoned me by 4.00pm, i will be going into the bank personally.

Hi all,

 

Went to the bank he phoned customer relations himself, and asked if they could over-ride collection departments desicion to re-open the account, and they said they couldn't under any circumstance reopen the account.

They will be issuing a cheque after the bank holiday....i told them it is useless as i had no way of cashing it ( I have...but i was trying to play them off).

The bank manager was giving it i'm so sorry..maybe you could open a savings account....and the look on my face must've said it all.

 

So who gives you EXTRA? certainly not halifax!!

 

I questioned him about the closure of the account and showed him the banking code bulletin, and he said it was purely coincidental that they closed the account, and was due to being overdrawn for a lenght of time, and nothing to do with the claim. (What a load of c**p) they're just protecting themselves.

 

Anyway to save time when i recieve the cheque, i am cashing it at the pawnbrokers as they will only charge £200....and get this....£84 of it belongs to Halifax. Lmao.

 

Anyway thank you all for your help, and congratulations, and wish you all well with your claims.

Onto Nationwide next lol.

Hi all,

 

I tried opening an account with Natwest and they said No. I have 2 accounts with Nationwide, but without going into too much detail i really can't afford to wait the 7 working days for the cheque to clear.

The -£84 that resulted in having my account closed was included in my claim, so that will go towards the fees at the pawnbrokers.

 

Thank you all for your encouragement, and i wish you all well with your claims.
