Hi David,

 

Adapt the letter above to say you have received what you consider to be an inadequate response to your SAR. Point out any items you specifically require.

 

You shouldn't have to do this but it may help you get the documents you require.

 

Have you reclaimed all penalty charges from BC yet. If not, you can do so, reclaiming the full penalty amount plus interest.

 

:)

When I claimed mine back from Barclaycard, I sent them a SAR asking for a list of charges.

 

I then sent BC a letter asking for the charges back with interest.

 

Barclaycard then ignored this letter.

 

I sent an LBA giving them 14 days to repay the charges, they wrote back saying it would take 4 weeks. After 4 weeks they wrote again, saying it would be another 4 weeks. After the second lot of 4 weeks, they wrote to me and refunded all the charges, above £12 and at £12 and added the interest at 8% - However, they deducted this amount off what I owed. I then paid the remaining £100 balance off in full, clearing my debt to them.

 

Until my final payment of the £100 I had not paid Barclaycard a penny for about a year or so. The account had been passed to a DCA and I had never made any contact with that DCA, nor had I CCA'ed BC or the DCA

Hi David,

 

As stated above, you can reclaim the full amount of every penalty charge. To maximise your claim, seek interest in restitution on top. Read up on this in the Interest Tutorial at Link No6 in my signature.

 

If the a/c is behind on payments, they will apply the refund to reduce the balance. However, if you have to file a court claim against BC (because they don't refund the higher interest voluntarily), you may be able to get a direct repayment.

 

Read other threads and you'll find other similar cases.

They will credit it off what you owe them, afaik - They did with mine. But I never took it to court, I just waited for them to reply.

Hi Davidoneman,

 

Best course is to reclaim the charges and seek interest in restitution on top.

 

This should increase the amount you claim significantly, particularly if there are older charges on the a/c.

 

Read other threads here to see how this is done.

Barclaycard generally pay contractual interest.

BC usually refuse to pay contractual int't, but back down when you have issued court action and have submitted your court bundle in accordance with the court's Directions.

 

If you don't want to get involved in court action and are prepared to settle for a refund of just the charges, BC will refund these with little trouble.

Hi

 

 

I had a barclaycard over 7 years ago ,

at the time I got into some financial trouble and got some late fees of £20 and some £12 adding upto around £230 .

 

 

They didnt have a signature and at the time told on here it would be unenforceable

stopped making payments that was around 7 years ago .

 

 

Would I be able to claim these charges back now or would it open the account back up ,

 

 

also what interest would i charge if I could claim ,

I also have a couple of other accounts the same situation just different amounts, cheers

Hi DOM,

 

You could seek a refund using court action as done by others here in the past.

 

But if the a/c had an unpaid balance and it's still held by BC, any refund and associated interest would be applied to the o/s balance.

 

If the a/c was sold to a 3rd party, theoretically you could insist on a direct refund.

However, BC's sol's are likely to re-purchase the a/c from the 3rd party.

 

Can you confirm the approx balance that remained on the a/c.

 

:-)

Hi DOM,

 

Depending on how old the charges are, the effect of compound interest can be very significant.

 

Best way to see if a reclaim is worth it is to put your penalty chgs data on a compound interest spready using 19.9%. Let us know how THAT looks.

 

See here for an example thread that should have all you need to consider your options - http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?453389-Barclaycard-Default-Notice-Removal-**Claim-settled-(probably)**&p=4801374&viewfull=1#post4801374

Hi with the barclaycard the balance was around £7000 so if I did it before it would just take it off the account balance like it would now so theres no point , with the mbna one now that it was sold to hillsdens and now settled the money cant be taken off the account balance as its been settled . with this theres £204 of charges and £906.15 of charges with interest at 19.99 % total £1110.15 .

Hi DOM,

 

Agreed - the reclaim from BC is probably not worth doing.

 

Seek advice about trying the MBNA reclaim in the appropriate forum.
