hi all,

 

can you give advice as to what I can reclaim, received statements today.

 

charges are stated as follows:

 

1) late payment charge £24.00

2) exceed limit £24.00

3) out of order charge £40.00

 

letter also states that any info required prior to may 2004 is on microfiche @ £3.00 per statement!

 

To proceed with prelim for amount known and request microfiche also, is this O.K.

 

advice greatly appreciated as always, Regards

additional advice please,

 

I did request that a copy of the original agreement be provided with my D.P.A. request.

 

If this is also on microfiche do I have to pay extra to see this.

 

please can someone give me a reply

Hi Sherlock. The microfiche argument is another delaying tactic of Barclaycard. Write back saying that they have not fully responded and that the clock is ticking and that they have ??days left to comply from the date they received your SAR.

 

You can claim back all of the fees you were asking about.

I thought I read in a previous post that interest is not charged on fees/charges on credit card account.

 

It said they have such a system that interest isn't applied in the schedule of payments, or something like that :confused:

 

Am I getting mixed up?

 

Also I cannot get the charges total until I get microfiche statements prior to 2004 (this must be BULLSH*T, coz my partner did microfiche 20 years ago).

 

Should I claim a refund that I know of in the last 2 years statements, as these have threatened insolvency for £1300.00, or proceed with letter asking them to comply with original S.A.R. as of XX/11/06,

 

advice welcome,

We are reclaiming charges which were unlawfully applied by Barclaycard. It follows that it is also unlawful to charge interest on the charges.

 

It follows that it is unlawful to charge interest on the interest...

 

See what I mean? They owe you an awful lot more than you realise.

If they say that your payments first pay the unlawful charges off, then anythimng left over goes towards what you spend on a card, then a bit off the interest on what you spent then it follows that if the unlawful charges had not been appiled, you would have paid back what you borrowed a lot sooner, thus saving yourself interest.

 

This is the [problem] they've been running for years and years.

Has anyone had dealings with roxburghe a company whose name has now been changed to HFO Services Ltd? My debt has doubled from the original amount......arrgh, also barclaycard did not reply to a letter i had written to them over a year ago which is why the charge have accrued

been through statements thoroughly and I am issuing my prelim now with the remit that the claim will be under review pending further scrutiny of microfiched statements.

 

Also a question on interest charges. I was charged for approx 1 year at 1.873% and 1 year at 0.447%. am i to assume that the latter refers to the interest charged when in default? how do I charge both and/or split them. the difference at the lower rate has risen by £107.00

a further technical question :)

 

bcoz this is a debt, and creditors have been paying the monies to DCA's, can I request that the monies I have actually paid be refunded to myself (+ interest) and the outstanding charges refund (+ interest) be taken from the outstanding amount,

 

All advice welcome,

Hi. if your debt is higher than the refund of charges then this means that your refund of charges and interest will be deducted, leaving a lesser balance. You will have to pay this (but obviously it will be a reduced amount). You will not get a refund unless there has been an overpayment. Not sure if this answers your question but I think thats what you were asking. Looking at your thread, you have not mentioned how much you are claiming back?

Hi,

 

as I only received 2 years statements my initial claim was for £344.00 + interest.

 

This does not cover the debt amount but with interest it amounts to nearly £500.00.

 

Do you think I am right to claim this now and wait for microfiche statements to turn up.......or wait for microfiche and claim as a whole.

 

I was thinking if I put this initial prelim in it may reduce the timescale at a later date?

I THOUGHT I'D READ WITHIN THIS SITE THAT YOU CANNOT TAKE SOMEONE TO COURT ON ESTIMATED CHARGES?

 

Are the prelims worded differently?

 

Additionally, I do not know the start date of this account, as the statements only show from May 2004. I couldn't estimate on this basis.

Yes, you can take to court on estimated charges. When filling out the allocation Q you ask the Judge if Barclays can provide you with the Statments dating back to 2001, and amend your claim accordingly

Abbey - owed £3260 - Paid up.

 

Barclays owed £2500 - Paid up.

 

Halifax, Mint & Egg - next on the hit list

 

Dont click on the scales - I'm quite proud of my little red dot! - As the little red dot has gone - click away!!!!

Done Non-Compliance letter, will wait the 40 days before prelim letter for charges refund AND as the account is in dispute, I do not acknowledge the debt and therefore nothin' doin' til I get info.

I don't think you have grounds to not acknowledge the debt - it is still a live debt - you are disputing their practices on data not debt.

Consumer Health Forums - where you can discuss any health or relationship matters.

Do I have rights to NOT acknowledge the debt until my requests are complied with?

 

I nor my partner can recollect this debt or the amounts and as such we require our creditors to PROVE we owe them anything.

 

How do I sit with taking this standpoint!!
