My son had a student account with Halifax when he first went to university.


Sadly, due to mental health problems, now diagnosed as bipolar disorder, he dropped out of university.


Halifax agreed to freeze the account.

In recent months his health has deteriorated again, and he is now claiming Employment and Support Allowance and living back at home with us.


Halifax have recently decided to charge him £16 per month for the overdraft, but as this month's payment has put him into 'Unplanned Overdraft' he has been charged another £5 per day on top of this, so the debt is now mounting .


I've put some funds into the account to try and alleviate the situation, but wondering what we can do next.


He's not in any fit state today to speak to anyone at the bank.

I'd write to Halifax and ask them to close the account


It's not fair under FCA conc rules that penalty charges place people in debt


Does he use it at all now



please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
