Yes, I would post it to your branch. But never put cash in the post, its so dangerous. You can get a postal order to send. Alternatively, if you hand deliver it to your branch, making sure you get a receipt, you could give them the cash or permission to take the money from your account (as long as you have enough in there to cover it).


And then make sure you spend all your spare time reading the step-by-step instructions, faqs and all the threads you possibly can!


Best of luck :)


:p I'm a lover, not a fighter... well, most of the time :razz: ~

You can post it to your own branch yes, i wouldnt put £10 cash in envelope as you have no tracing ability for it, get a postal order for it

Good luck!

Yeah make sure you get a receipt for handing it in. If your not posting it R.Delivery you need to have proof that they received your letter should the B.O.S. ever come back and say they never received your letter-Which is what they said to me.

14/8/06 - S.A.R Request to B.O.S for C.Account + 2 C. Cards Statments. Sent to HBOS, The Mound, Edinburgh (R.Delivery)

18/09/06 - S.A.R. Request Reminder Letter sent to HBOS, The Mound, Edinburgh. Local Branch C.C. (R.Ddelivery)

19/09/06 - 01/10/06 - Requested Information Received - Various Packages and Letters

11/10/06 - Prelim Letter Posted to HBOS, The Mound, Edinburgh. Local Branch C.C. (R.Ddelivery)


18/10/06 - Letter Received from HBOS as follows "your complaint will be passed to a Customer Services Manager....get back to you within 4 weeks"

Hi Trish,


Yeah the interest thing is very confusing, I didn't bother as my charges where very substantial anyway.


Keep up the good work, any help I can offer give us a shout
