Having just successfully won against Halifax, £4699 in total, for our joint account, my wife has today asked her HSBC branch for her statements for last six years. Yes they said, the first year is free and then we want £1 per sheet after that! Although my wife quoted the DP Act and the max £10 charge they wouldn't budge. So in the branch she sat down and wrote the DPA letter, asking them to send it to the correct dept.

From others experience is this how the HSBC operate?

I think the individual in the branch is probably just incompetent. I can't see it being a policy decision.

SAR complete with payment is the best approach, i havent heard yet that anyone has actually had to pay for statements after submitting the SAR.

The branch are probably behavign as they have been taught, and wont have the first idea how to dela with soemthing out of the ordinary.

By posting the SAR and payment, it gives the bank a cleaer indication that you know what to do and how to do it, they are less likley to give you the run around.

I love the smell of banks coughing up refunds early in the morning

I recieved an acknowledgement letter dated 26.10.06, along with my £10, which they said they would gladly cover. got my first batch of statements today 2.11.06, 19 separate letters. I think the staff in your branch must be a bit dumb. I cant believe how much money these vultures are conning out of us.

Its revolution time!!!:grin: 8-)
