Hi, I ended up with an overdraft as a company I was working for managed to trick me into giving them my card details, allowing them to take £3500 out of my account when there was no money in the account, ending up in an unauthorised overdraft...

 

This was 3 months ago. I was lead to believe that id be paying back £225 pound a month (roughly), on the 29th of each month. Now that I checked, they are charging me interest and some other card charges, totalling in 3 extra charges on the 3rd of every month, adding to £75 on top of the overdraft, I only have a debit card?

 

One charge is £20 because I don't have money in the account. Is this right? what can I do? can I claim it back? Court? I'm raging!

 

Please help, I would hate to find out there was nothing I could do, I have the dreaded feeling that there is nothing I can do... I need my credit rating up as I am trying to start a business, this all happen at the worst time... word of advice for anyone its relevant to, "Don't Work For Amazon", they are slave drivers fringing on the law...

Self-employed delivery driver. I was told they needed me to make a bank transaction via my card to pay me... they claimed 3500 access for a busted tail light on the hired van...

I think you need to start a new thread with regards to the Van episode in the Motoring Forum...3500 is a very expensive tail light ?

 

And we will keep your overdraft problem here as there are 2 elements to your problem....Employment/Insurance and Banking Overdraft.

Okay. So I too am banking with Ulster and received an overdraft charge following a purchase I made with a debit card online. The thing is at the end of the money I received an additional fee of £20 (same as the overdraft) totally £40 for the month! Is this normal?

    • Sorry, in regards to the letter. Literally a template letter I’ve pulled from online.    I do have dates, can find them on.    and also the hardship was them telling us not to pay until issue resolved (got that in disclosure) so left it for a few months, then them turning around saying you shouldn’t have been told that and you’ll have to pay higher amount to catch up (got on voice recording). 
    • Hi all,  a few days ago I received a letter from lowells telling me that court proceedings are being taken ( a bit late for that as I have had the claim form for over a week). I have not heard anything as yet from Lowell solicitors since sending the CPR31:14 off to them. I need to be doing my defence on Mcol website but would appreciate any help on how to word it. Any suggestions would be appreciated guys as I have never done anything like this before. Thanks guys.
    • Quiet...not really your last post was only 17 hours ago.Have you had any further thoughts with regards to your intended defence ?  Post a copy of your intended draft here then we can  pool some ideas and add to it.   Andy
    • Gick I agree with you, except POFA was 2012. According to the DVLA the IPC and BPA are the regulators and it is a waste of time complaining to them about a Private Parking Company not adhering to Code of Practices. They do have the wool pulled over their eyes, but do they care when they receive a nice income from it? The IPC don't have bars to serve drinks, but they do  have nice annual dinners, with their main sponsor being Gladstone Solicitors, but that could never be seen as another example of a conflict of interest could it?
    • If you have taken time off for them to replace faulty meters then this would definitely be recoverable. Do you have the dates and times? Also, please tell us about the wrongful information and the hardship it caused you

    • 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....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
