Not really, it'll be in the T&Cs of the a/c, I know it is with both of my a/cs with different banks.

 

You may be lucky though, sometimes as a 'goodwill gesture' they'll refund it if it is a 'first offence'.

I know its of no consolation but imagine having this account a couple of years ago-you would have been charged £27.50-dont I know it I had 2 grands worth of them !!

Awww, come on, Cerberus, you of all people should know that what is written down is only as valid as the law which governs it!!! :shock:

 

The £8 is Barclays' way to try and skirt around the charges issue and the test case. The whole concept is called the "Reserve" and if you read about it around the Barclays forum, you'll soon see what it's all about.

 

Some people are challenging the Reserve fee (£22 for every 5 days you're over), but I am not aware of anyone having challenged the £8 fee if you are over the limit on a non-reserve account yet. My gut feeling is that it is still unfair under the UTCCR, especially if they took away your o/draft and signed you up to the new account without giving you a chance to accept or refuse.

Oh,forgot to mention,after i had finished moaning about the charges,etc,etc, the woman on the phone starting trying to sell me home insurance,these people are like robots.

 

What are the chances of anyone wanting to buy barclays isurance,after being on the phone complaining about,their customer services etc.

 

I can imagine the answer you would get from them if you wanted to claim on their insurance,probably and the difficulties. IDIOTS

Pity you didn't ask whether they had a free legal advice line with the home insurance :D

I know that Bookworm & had the charges been more I would have advised differently, but with it being £8 and the time and cost involved challenging it, would it be worthwhile in this instance?

The SAR covers all the data they hold on you as a person and should include all your a/cs you have with them, but no doubt you will have to write and remind them if they fail to provide it all. ;)

Thanks for your reply, going back to the £8 charges would i also go for them aswell ??

I take it by your answer they dont like giving the information out that easily !!

 

 

When it comes to giving out information-Barclays will only give you what they think you should have.

Lets just say they are not over generous with it either.

May be a longshot but do you still have any correspondence from when it was a Woolwich account advising you of the £50 overdraft limit. If you could produce that then with no correspondence cancelling it they would surely have to refund you as you were within your notified limit. This may not work if there is an expiry date to the limit but just an idea you may like to try.

It should be re-directed if necessary.

 

Was it sent by Rec'd Del'y or similar.

They stung me £35 a few months ago because I was £2.75 short of a direct debit on my business account, which was caused by one of my customers not paying on time.

 

Havent challenged it (yet) as I crossed swords with them last year when they tried to close my business account which I had to fight like hell to get them to change their minds, so dont want to rock the boat with them as its now impossible to get a new business account elsewhere, and believe me I've tried.

 

Beachy.

Watch out for confirmation that the PO's been encashed.

 

As the letter went RMSD, you have proof of posting which is adequate just now. See what comes back in response.

Hi LFB,

 

Not sure how long they normally take to cash the PO.

 

Was the letter enclosing it sent by Rec'd Del'y and does this show as having been delivered.

 

Yes, the SAR covers all data held by the bank concerning you. As BC are officially "Barclays Bank PLC t/a Barclaycard", the SAR response should include any BC data.

 

You could pre-empt delays by writing to Barclays reminding them they have xx number of days to reply to the SAR and that you trust they'll ensure they provide BC data for the following two a/c nos.
