Hi Helen, welcome to the family.

 

First, spend a few days reading the FAQs, the step-by-step guide and the threads in the HSBC forum.

This is a self-help forum, so it's up to you to do a bit.

 

Click this link for FAQs

 

Clcik this link for the step-by-step guide.

 

Go Through your statements and highlight all the charges.

Next, transfer the highlighted charges to a spreadsheet.

 

Click this link for spreadsheets.

 

When you have completed the spreadsheet, save it on your PC (you'll need it again). Print it out and send it as your schedule of payments claimed with the Preliminary letter.

 

Click this link for preliminary letter.

 

But, I repeat, READ THE FAQs. because it's most important that you understand what you are doing.

You will be taking a major financial institution with unlimited funds and a large legal department to court.

 

But be not afeared, moi lass. If you follow the well-tried and tested procedures on this site you WILL WIN.

 

Congratulations on the impending family increase. Hope everything goes well.

And, when you've got your bank charges back, the baby can have a new bonnet.:)

 

Good luck with your claim. (You won't need luck, but I'll say it anyway) :)

Welcome.

 

Take your pick from these successful claims:

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/hsbc-fd-hfc-successes/

 

 

Before you start please have a thorough read of the FAQs (there’s a Step by Step guide here too). You should print both of these out to refer to, so as to avoid having to ask basic questions later.

 

Then look at other threads in your bank’s forum, so as you know what you can expect to happen

 

You need to spend 2 or 3 days gradually getting your head round everything. If you find a forum/thread/post of interest, save it in your Favourites, so as you can always find it easily.

 

There’s a lot to take in, but it’s time well spent and will ensure that you succeed in your claim without problems. Remember it’s not a race, don’t rush, just follow the guidelines one step at a time

 

This is a self-help forum and you must be prepared to put in time and effort. It is your claim, your money and you cannot expect others to do all the work for you.

 

When you feel confident that you understand the process and the various stages involved, start a new thread in your bank’s forum and post your progress and any questions there and you’ll get plenty of help

 

All the info to get you started is here:

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/faqs-please-read-these/

 

Good luck

 

Finally please heed the words of warning here and make sure it doesn’t happen to you:

Helen, whenever you get white-screened on this site, it's almost certainly due to a high level of traffic on the server.

 

Just leave it a few minutes and try again. You'll eventually get in.

Certain times of the day are busier than others.

Hi all!

 

Thanks for this brilliant site, without it i wouldnt even be considering going down this route with the bank.

 

Im just about ready to send of my first letter, just need to double check some charges with online banking, but im at £1,300 so far.

 

I do have one big question though. I had to take out a loan with HSBC as i had gone over £1,000 overdrawn, but as they had added so many charges it got even more out of hand and in the end i borrowed about £2,000 for this. Do you recommend i ask for some of this loan back also? Obvioulsy im now paying monthly interest on this loan that wouldnt be as large if not for these charges. I want to ask this before i do anything as i dont want to mess it all up.

 

Thanks for your help guys, wish me luck!!! ;)

I think what you can do, although read through all the threads on this, is argue that if they hadn't charged you you wouldn't have had to take the loan out, so you could get the interest back on the loan, but not the loan itself as they'll refund the charges, and if they refunded the loan they'd in effect be giving you the money back twice. You'll need to work out how much of the loan was made up of charges, and then calculate the interest accordingly. Hope that makes sense, and good luck!

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bank-templates-library/182-6-interest-calculation-spreadsheets.html. This is the spreadsheet template. Well it is on that page to download. Put your charges in there and the spreadsheet with work it all out for you. What I did is after the figures were in, it works out how many days since you were charged and works out the 8% interes as well, was after you save it, delete the DAYS SINCE OFFENCE and 8% collumn, and save is as a different name. Send the one with deleted columns with your prelim. Hope I didnt comlicate things.

omg. well i have sent my prelim letter to hsbc last friday asking for my charges 5 years back. it came to £1,502. there time is up on friday and as yet i have not heard anything. (it IS 14 days, isnt it?) anyways, today i have checked my account which has no overdraft limit, and i am £291.00 overdrawn, all but £40 of this is charges all added on since i sent my letter. I have one card misuse at £10, a total charges, and 2 returned standing order fee's. normally they wouldnt charge as much as this is one go on my account, do you think they are being so nasty because they have recieved my claim?

 

another thing i wanted to ask, was do i simply add these charges onto my claim when i send them my LBA? I have oppened my parachute account, but am moving all income and DD's to the other anyway as im so angry and upset with HSBC.

 

Im sorry this is so long, thanks for taking the time to read it though, i really felt awful when i checked my account and felt i needed some help.

 

thanks again, helen

hi there a1deano, the letters are in the templates part of the site, the first step is to read as much of the site as u can so you know what you are doing, then send a letter to your bank asking for your statements so you can work the total amount you are owed. hth

Hi a1deano

 

I suggest you take your time to read through the FAQ's at the top of the page - that will give you all of the answers that you need. There's step by step guides in there as well.

 

Also when you are ready, start your own thread so everyone can follow your progress and advise you if you have any other queries.

 

Good luck.

Dani
