I got a overdraft for £50 for one month. Gone over it by ridiculous amounts. Its now upto £210. 'Cos am not paying it back there adding £15 on a day, plus a extra £15 a month.

They wont give me a bigger overdraft, they wont stop the fee's. How am I supposed to pay it please?!

Can't ask my mum and dad 'cos they are "not funding me anymore" and my dad has just paid a big load out for my car to be fixed.

If I don't pay it by 3 o'clock tomorrow, I will then be in £225 debt.

Can you answer my other questions please and have you been in to a branch to try and sort this out?

Got a meeting with them tomorrow, they couldn't do nothing over the phone.

Spoke to my mate about it before, and she said the same thing happend to her, they couldn't do nothing in the branch except listen to her and pretend they felt sorry for her.

 

Im not working at the moment. I have no form of income.

It seems to me that your bank are creating a debt for you and perhaps you should calmly tell them that tomorrow. Surely you have at least job seekers allowance or income support?

Yes, I understand that but you can negotiate with the branch as you have a small income. You can show willing and offer to pay token ammounts off the account whilst you are unemployed :)

I didn't end up going to the branch as I came down with a really bad bug.

 

Just checked my online account, and this is what it shows...

 

Account balance:

£0.54 CR

 

Available balance:

£0.54

 

Overdraft limit:

£0.00

 

So, that means I am now in 54p credit, instead of being -£225.

So I was quite confused as how I was, so I rang, and the woman on the phone said, they are only going to take £60 on 1st Sept.

God knows why like ha

Are you having your JSA paid in to your bank account?

What we need to do then is to try and get someone with a bit of sense at the bank to take the initiative and stop that £60 charge as it clearly would put you in debt.

 

You really need to speak to a manager at this point.

 

The reason I asked if your JSA was going in to the account is that banks a re NOT allowed to take your benefits for payment of charges etc.
