A couple of years back i was in a mess financially. countless pay day loans etc, there got to a stage where even the pay day loans wouldnt lend to me as i assume my credit score was too bad.

 

Now i hadnt been able to get an overdraft or anything for years, natwest suddenly offered out of the blue a 2500 pound overdraft, i obviously took it and then managed to top it up up to about 3700 over about a year.

 

I was on the edge of my overdraft each month and i was paying around 150-200 pounds each month to keep myself below the overdraft limit each time i got paid.

 

in the end i assume they had had enough and told me they were taking away the overdraft and i had to pay them immediately. i obviously couldnt afford to do that.

 

I thought i'd chance my arm at an irresponsible lending claim but they flat out refused.

 

Is it worth taking to the financial ombudsman do we think?

 

thanks for your help

Tell me more about all these PDLs you had. I saw the one about Square Today - I do not know what to suggest on that one...

 

As for the FOS - Go for it - It is free to do so...

Do it differently though - Go down the Hardship route and include elements of IRL

I'd say that it's irresponsible borrowing on your part.

 

Nobody seems responsible for their own actions these days.

Agree but Natwest have more access to info about transactions etc and so can make a more defined decision about who to lend to... If they have maxed out someones overdraft after they had already hit the limit then that should have been the end of it and no further lending should have taken place.

It is on the onus of the Lender to do stringent checks and verify affordability.

Natwest could do so very easily. Its very difficult for someone to get their expenditure wrong etc when the person who is lending is the bank that you bank with :)

 

So anyway :) Be nice to the OP and be constructive - not restrictive :)

Think I had 6 in pay day loan defaults at the time I got the overdraft.

 

I’ve never gone to the ombudsman before exactly what should I send them?

If they dont get a response then you can ask that they remove it :)

And they should comply...

Probably best to just keep this thread dealing exclusively with the NW overdraft Problem ...overdrafts can be recalled at anytime as per the terms and conditions of the offered facility...without reason.

 

I doubt you will get anywhere with the FOS/irresponsible lending.

 

Have you made alternative banking arrangements away from the RBS group ?

Andyorch is right - They are able to call it in under T&Cs however there is a slight caveat to that in that they shouldn't be allowed to extend your OD if you already have gone over a certain amount in debit over a defined period.

I reclaimed for Lloyds but i went the Hardship route and it took 3 years to get a result with numerous head buttings... All i would say is that it is free to raise a complaint but make your complaint worth it as if you supply the evidence then the FOS usually rules in favour of the complainant

So whose name is against it on your Credit file ? NW may not have sold the debt...they normally instruct the likes of Wetcloths to chase but dont assign it to them.
