It is called off-setting, and whilst really they should say they are going to do it - they have to weigh that against the likelihood that you would withdraw the money from the account before they could transfer the money.

 

At the end of the day, you had not paid anything toward the loan for two years, and you had started the process for reclaiming charges on your account. They are mitigating their losses.

 

I cannot see any circumstances in which they would agree to refund this money.

 

What you now have to consider is that they will want to also off-set any refund against the amount owed on the loan - you may need to take steps to try and avoid that happening by including within your claim that you require settlement by cheque.

The swines! They did something similar to me. I've been unemployed, can't even claim benefits (due to previous self employment) and was unable to pay my Halfiax One credit card account. They called loads of times daily, and were given the same answer over and over, that I was waiting for working tax credits to be sorted out.

In the meantime they were taking money from my Halifax bank account to pay the credit card account - without me knowing. That's what's caused me to run into hundreds of pounds overdrawn in stupid bank charges alone.

Because they'd taken money out my direct debits, for electric, gas and the like, didn't get paid and I got charged for each one of course. I cancelled all the direct debits and standing orders and stopped using the account, then started action to reclaim the fees.

Now they've issued a default notice, all but closed the account and keep pestering for more money.

Am I looking forward to them repaying all these charges now!
