RBS charges- extremely out of hand

Recommended Posts

I wondered if I can seek advice?

 

 

Iv had an RBS since 2001 and kept it in good order,

 

 

however in 2011/2012 I had 1 missed direct debit and this is now how the account stands on my credit file

 

Date of default

31/10/2012

Default balance

£ 721

 

I wrote to the bank in 2012 and also wrote to Financial ombudsman but I only ever received 1 letter back from the bank

to say that these charges had not been unfairly charged.

 

Recently the same thing has happened to my partner.

 

 

He was with Santander and the only thing that ever came out of his account was iTunes,

For the sake of £3.41 his Santander account now stands at £600 overdrawn and is still increasing..

 

 

.. we need help, we need to know what we can do and if I can still do anything with RBS now that the account hasn't been used for 3 years?

 

These accounts are stopping us from getting a mortgage... does this mean we can claim compensation for the damage?

 

I have read a lot of articles but still unsure what my rights are.

if you can prove the defaults were solely due to unlawful penalty charges

then BCOBS is your friend

A word for Both accounts, if they went overdrawn (Especially like Santander) then BCOBS is very good here!

Santander seems to have been unfair in this situation!!! £3 turning into £600+

 

Thats disproportionate and unfair and wouldnt stand up in court... This I certainly know!!

What can we do from here then? Is there a procedure we can follow to get this overturned?

The whole point of BCOBS is designed to give the consumer an edge in dealing with the banks. (Or an equal footing in correct terms)

 

Search BCOBS FCA , have a read of it.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
