    • @unclebulgaria67 your point is particularly valid especially in regards to loss in the event of a claim. Irrespective of 2x SP30’s or not the vehicle is insured for its full market value. The insurers rating changes based on risk against those endorsements, where said risk calculation isn’t made available.    Also I question the validation of 22% in premium. Is that based on today’s risk profiling, or is that applied retrospectively to day 1 and can that be evidenced.    One thing that is very clear, is that to bring about any degree of misrepresentation the insurer has to have evidence that questions were asked in regards to the endorsements.   This was an auto renewal and when I’ve checked the Brokers electronic Copy on “My Policy’ at renewal, there is no section included relative to accidents in the last 5 yrs or Motoring convictions. Everything else relative to me and the named driver is listed.

    • Must be a positive if the Insurers are now using the legislation as it was intended. It is just that I have not heard of it being used for Car Insurance, as the 22% comes from the Insurers rating calculations, which is not available information to the Policyholder. With Home Insurance, if you Insured a Building for £100k, when it should have been Insured for £122k, it is easier to grasp.   The Insurers would have issued the policy documents clearly showing that no motoring offences had been included within the premium calculation and the OP has had 5 months to correct the record with Insurers before the accident.   Perhaps probe the Insurers on the 22%. Can they provide evidence from their Underwriting rating guidance that this is the extra premium for 2 SP30's.
    • Moorcroft are just a first DCA that Natwest use, after Natwest have stopped chasing it.   The debt is still owned by Natwest and is currently sat with Moorcroft, but in a pile with many thousands of others.   If your new postal address is showing on your credit file, Moorcroft would have sent letters if they thought this was a priority debt to chase.     
    • We signed up to a credit reference agency.  Got an email this morning saying a search had been carried out in my husband’s name.  It’s by Moorcroft who are doing it on behalf of NatWest. Do we worry?  It’s been over 6 years since last payment and we wrote to NatWest in January advising of our new address.  They and Moorcroft both emailed an old email address which we have access to but never use asking us to confirm our address.  We didn’t respond to it.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

I have a barclay card and a barclays account. I placed money aside for childcare in barclays savings account and went to withdraw but barclays had transferred to my current account then paid barclay card 400 pounds. Three months ago i agreed to make reduced payments of £50 a month for 12 months and they agreed to reduce my interest during this period... they have reduced my interest rate and have taken £50 by direct debit for the last three months

 

Are they entitled to set-off my accounts in this way with an agreement in place... can anyone advise on a letter I can send to claim this money back...????

 

Please help

They are entitled to use the right of set off but I would argue that you have actually complied with their request every month and therefore they have no right to do so.

I think you need to argue that the money is for childcare so since you have no childcare, you will, if they do not return the money, be dropping off your child to the nearest branch of Barclays every single day for the amount of time that you would be paying for ;)

Hi Dixxy,

 

You are always at risk of such a set-off when you owe money to a card and have other bank accounts with the same banking group.

 

Open a new a/c outside the Barclays group so you can safely pay in money and leave it there for when required by you.

 

You could try complaining to Barclays about this but I really doubt you'll get anywhere, particularly after the set-off.

 

If you DO want to complain, do so on the basis that you and BC had an agreement that you'd pay so much per month and you kept to this.

 

Confirm that the money taken was ear-marked for child care and their actions will cause you severe problems.

 

Tell them, if they refuse to refund it, you will raise a formal complaint with the FOS.

 

Send to Barclays Head Office by Rec'd Del'y and keep copies of all letters.

have a quick visit to Abbey's website and open a account and you could have a new one within the week, Abbey dont seem to want to see ID and stuff and if you accepted they send out the details straight away, which then leads you to having a separate account where no one without your authorisation can take the money

thanks all. i'm certainly going to complain! I really do need this money for childcare!! I'll let you know if I get anywhere! - i've also applied for another account.. feels a little like i need to keep a locked box under my bed. Aren't there any loyalty benefits or indeed any benefits for being with banks anymore?

Hi DC,

 

LOYALTY !! Sorry but I think that fell out of fashion some time back, not just with banks, but with many businesses that used to value your custom.

 

Right, so you ARE going to complain - good. Draft a brief letter to Barclays and send it to their HO:-

 

Barclays Bank plc

Head office customer relations

1 churchill place

london

e14 5hp

 

Include the points I made in post #3 above but also mention that this is having an immediate and severe financial impact leaving you unable to pay for childcare services, which are vital for your employment and income.

 

Tell them, as well as making a formal complaint to the FOS, you will contact your MP and the press, to highlight how the bank have unilaterally reneged on an agreement to which you had kept.

 

Of course, you should base your letter on YOUR view of matters, not on my very brief understanding of events.

 

If you need help with the letter, just shout. :)

Mate, if they make a complaint to the bank on Financial hardship then if they complain to the bank, the bank sends to letter to the Bank since they have not had the opportunity of answering the letter. I hope I misread that part of the post.

You've completely lost me with this post.

 

I am suggesting OP writes to bank saying it's actions have caused a severe financial impact. I'm not suggesting a claim for charges is made under the Hardship Rules.

 

I'm further suggesting that OP tells bank that a complaint is being made to the FOS. Whether it IS made at this stage matters not.

Is being made or WILL be made? Cos the first part comes across as plain and simply lying to the bank from my reading.

Would he not ask the question, await a response, and if he is unhappy, write to the Bank for a Final Response before going to the FOS?

YB,

 

1. Can you confirm what I've said that comes across as lying to the bank.

 

2. Can you re-read your post here and confirm if you think it's correct - did you mean to say "FOS" instead of bank somewhere.

See above plus the whole paragraph. It is how it comes across

Let's not get bogged down with semantics here. You could help more by clarifying what you mean in your (I think) confusing post. :)

 

Dixxy should complain to the bank, also telling them that she WILL (at some stage) complain to the FOS.

 

Before doing that, she can ask the bank for their "final response".
