Hi everyone


My main current account is with Barclays, which I have had since I was little.


I'm 24 now, so would be able to claim for all charges I have received from the account, as I only started getting them when I was 19.


My problem is that I have been working through an agency on a weekend basis for Barclaycard for the last six or so weeks.


I know that if I was to claim against Barclays, it would probably amount to a fair whack as I was fairly irresponsible between 18 and 22(!), but what do you think my chances are of screwing up my employment?!


Hopefully I will be taken onto Barclaycard's books after the initial three month period, and I don't deny that it's very useful as I'm a student.


Should I start a claim against them or not? And if so, should I do this whilst I'm still employed via the agency or once I'm on their books? Would this be deemed as gross misconduct?!

there will be some one on here who can give you more accuarate advice that me but just for info, I was in my local bank the other day and whilst I was in the queue, one of the bank employees came up to me ( our children went to the same school ) and she asked me how she would go about getting her own charges back ?


Have a look in the Barclays forum and if you are starting a claim, then start a thread in your name and you'll get some support

good luck

Welcome Sambo

You cannot be sacked for claiming back charges.

Theres a section here for bankworkers you may like to post in there.

It is a condition of registration and site rules that bank workers report that fact to site admin.....if you have not done so then you should do this asap.

Btw......heres the link for the BW threads
