To PM you would be a breech of site rules, but please post the letter on the open forum or to site team who may be able to post it in the Templates section of the forum. Very Good information there.

I got all my statements going back even further than 1989. :D

 

How?

 

Complained to the ICO

 

The ICO told them to jump and they asked "How high?"

Got nowhere with RBS when I did SAR.. only got statements and after complaining this very strange reply which I still do not understand to be honest - or understand their reasons for sending it....

 

Data Protection Act - Subject Access Request

 

Thank you for your letter....etc.. please find enclosed:

 

1. Copy statements enclosed

 

2. Under the terms of the Data Protection we are not obliged to disclose information in the following circumstance;

 

35. Disclosures required by law or made in conncetion with legal proceedings etc

 

(1} Personal data are exempt fro the non-disclosure provisions where the disclosure is required by or under any enactment, by any rule of law or by the order of a court.

(2) Personal data are exempt from the non-disclosure provisions where the disclosure is necessary -

(a) for the purpose of, or in connection with, any legal proceedings (including prospective legal proceedings), or is otherwise necessary for the purposes of establishing, exercising or defending legal rights

 

3. Manual intervention

 

When items are presented for payment and covering funds are not available, manual intervention does not normally take place. However, if it does, it is part of a routine procedure and we are not required to make any record or note of the action that was adopted. therefore, no notes relating to manual intervention would exist.

 

and this

we have been unable to provide you with a copy of the original application, as this is no longer on our file. I would refer you to the contents of our letter dated ..... from......... This explains we have met our obligations under s&* (1) to provide a copy of the executed agreement and that we are satisfied that what was provided complied with the Regulations expressly made for controlling what is a 'true copy'.

Sounds like b*****s to me

 

I think they are saying that they don't have to supply more than statements because they think you are taking legal action against them,.

 

Don't remember seeing that in the DPA

There are certain instances where personal data is exempt from being disclosed, such as National Security, Crime, Health, Education, Social Security etc. What Section 35 means is that a court can order disclosure of data that would otherwise be exempt.

 

This has absolutely nothing to do with bank charges whatsoever. They are trying to blind you with science

In effect they are saying that we have no signed original agreement but we have recreated one for you under a different legislation.

Yep, have to agree with Michael Brown they are trying to hide behind a misinterpretation of the DPA.

 

You are legally entitled to the manual intervention information, but you won't get it out of RBS. I've had the sheets from another institution (Citi) and they clearly show that penalty charges such as "late payment" and "over the limit" fee's are entirely automated thus costing them next to nothing.... of course they aren't going to give prospective claimants that kind of evidence.


Advice offered by ENRON is without prejudice and is for your judgement as to whether to take it. You should seek the assistance or hire of a solicitor or other paid professional if in doubt.

do I ahve to be specific when complaining to ICO about RBS breaching the Data protection Act or can I just quote the response from RBS and 'hope' that the ICO will realise which part of law that will protect / support me?

 

It's a bit difficult making a complaint when i don't have a particular reference / clause to refer to whcih counters RBS's comments......... does that make sense?

 

Any suggestions on a reply to RBS in the meantime to shake them up a bit? I know many people say not to bother but I think if I can show I'm perservering then the ICO will actually be more sympathetic to the numerous attempts I have amde and hopefully be peeved off with RBS for their obstruction?

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
