Hi, this is my first post, so first of all thanks for all the help you have given me through this website!

 

I have asked for and received the copies of all my bank statements for the last six years. After going through them i found that i have been charged £830 in overdraft charges, so I'm now ready to start my claim. But, I was told today that HSBC will close my account when I make the claim and that it then becomes harder to open an account with a new bank. So my question is, how likely is that HSBC will close my account? And also what banks are the best banks to change to? Are there any that do not have an unauthorised overdraft facility? as i have asked HSBC to cancel the unauthorised overdraft facility before and all they would do was offer to increase my overdraft. Also I would prefer to open the account online because i have trouble getting to Banks.

 

Thank you

Scott

ok, first things first, who told you that they would definitely close your account?

 

secondly, for the most part , those that only submit one claim to hsbc dont have their accounts closed

 

and thirdly the natwest step acount sounds ideal for you, alternatively

 

look here

HSBC- £4995, settled payment in full

Thanks mate, yeah thats what i thought. It was a friend of my mums who had her account closed after she claimed £4000 back from them. I had a look earlier at the Natwest accounts and i was wondering if you can get an unauthorised overdraft charge with the step account, as theres no overdraft facility with it. Is that what makes that account a good one to change to?

 

Thanks

The woolwich doesn't have unauthorised overdraft facilities. (although I don't know whether that will be the same for new accounts now they are part of Barclays Bandits)

well mostly because of the fact its one of the easiest ones to get approved for, even if your credit score is a little less than perfect
