I am posting this hoping that someone has advice.


My bank typically charge £25 for what they call a 'Paid Item Charge'.

Unfortunately for me, it has put me over my overdraft limit on several occasions which has caused me to receive a further £25 charge at the end of the month for what they call an 'Unauthorised Overdraft Charge'.


I have challenged the bank and asked if they honestly believe that a few pounds over the limit can honestly warrant charging a total of £50 in one monthly period. As expected, they say yes.

The most I have incurred over one weekend is £75, that's 3 seperate charges. I have threatend the bank with the Banking Ombudsman which they have practically invited me to bring it on. I contacted the Ombudsman and they are no help what so ever. They insist the bank is within it's rights to charge. So as a piece of advice, don't expect help from the ombudsman.


So I guess i'm interested in what your views are in conjunction with what I call Banks Double Charges [problem].
