Like bankfodder said earlier, did you post the £10 payment to them at the time of the DPA request? As far as I'm aware the 40 days starts from when they receive the £10 fee and the DPA request. So if you've not done this then I'm afraid you may have to go back to day 1...

 

Regardless of whether you've sent the tenner you can always try phoning. Ask why they have failed to comply and tell them that you will go to the information commissioners office if they still persist in failing to send you the request. If they still don't play ball then go to the ICO, but it may take a while.

Yes i sent them a £10 PO with the letter, when i went into my local branch last week they spoke to my branch manager who had informed them that my letter has been sent on to another department to be dealt with.

I will give him a call this morning to find out exactly what is going on.

 

Thanks

Called my branch and requested to speak to the branch manger he would not speak to me directly and wanted to know what i was calling about the clerk informed me that the statements had been ordered and can't understand why i have not received it but she will place another order i have a feeling they might actually be trying to stall me. I will wait till next week to see if they arrive if not i will consider reporting them to ICO.

It can take up to two weeks for the historic statements to arrive. That's obviously no excuse for the 40days you've waited already but just letting you know if they are ordered properly this time thats the sort of timescales your looking at.

Well i finally got my backdated statements and i'm astounded of the different amounts they decide on charging, besides the first intial charge i'm charged again at the end of each month.

The total charges for 3 years is £1294.69 the interest alone is £231.32 well i can honestly say i'm looking forward to my next holiday.

I've just completed my preliminary approach letter i'm just off to the post office to send it recorded delivery.

Having read everyones post i can't help but feel that before i receive the money owed to me that somehow the banks will find a loop hole to get out call it nerves or is this too good to be true????

Well 14 days on and still no reply i will now draw up my LBA and get it sent today.

Would you believe i got another charge this week when i called the branch to find out what it was for they said it had to do with misuse of my card on the day my wages went into my account i asked them how they managed to work that one out well without an explanination they couldn't give it was refunded.

Well received a letter from Jeremy Atkinson my branch manger yesterday stating:

 

We believe that our charges are fair, reasonable and transparent. We consider that the amounts debited to your account have been applied strictly in accordance with your agreement with us and our published tariff, which we are satisfied, complies with all applicable laws and regulations. We are also committed to ensuring the transparency of the information that we give to our customers about the operation of our products.

We have considered and responded to the OFT statement of 5th April. We do not accept the OFT's findings in relation to credit card fees. We are concerned that the OFT has publicy called into question the setting of charges applied to other products, including current accounts. The OFT has restricted its investigation to credit cards and made no attempt to consult with RBS or the industry in relation to other, entirely different products.

Consequently, against the background, we must differ witht he views expressed in your letter and will not be refunding any charges applied to your bank account.

 

Blah blah blah.

 

Jeremy Atkinson

 

Please someone tell me what he's trying to say besides the fact he is not giving me back my money is he just trying to put me off? I guess i should start court proceddings?

Well i'm now back and fuming big time, i did a good deed for my grandmother as she lives in a different country she gave me a cheque for £500 for her to get the cash just before i went away while i was away i tried to get money from the same account it was empty i called my mother to find out what was going on it seems my grandmother gave me a cheque for the wrong account so it bounced so my account got wiped i got charges for everything even the standing order set up to go to my own savings account anyway she replaced the cheque but obviously this was to late as my credit card for Capital Pxxxs was not paid (see seperate thread) which caused me to get over £60 in charges plus RBS has given me nearly £100 in charges what big cock up. I now cannot afford to pay the fee for the money claim until this is all sorted which is kind of hard as their saying the usual rubbish.

What do i do?????

I have been with the Royal BAnk of Scotland for over 6 years i have a good relationship with some of the staff in my branch but this does not stop them from hitting me with charges as this became a problem i requested if there was an problems for them to contact me they did on several occassions where i was able to cover before the charges went through and got them cancelled but this has stopped and having checked my account today i have been hit with over £145 of bank charges. Knowing that i have paid alot in charges over the last 6 years i thought this has to end somewhere and i proceeded to write the letter which i got from the library but now i'm unsure of to post it or not as to the head office is in Edinburgh can anyone help me on this and advise what i should do?

 

Thanks
