I found myself and my family in a desperately dire financial position when I had a near-fatal road traffic accident 4 years ago. I have been unable to work for some time.


Despite serveral phone calls and letters to our banks, First and Abbey, we were still charged for overdraft and unpaid direct debits. And we also found ourselves living off credit cards!!


To cut the story quite short, First Direct finally served a default and closed our account and demanded to pay back over £3,000 immediately. We could not as we were running a monthly deficit. It did not stop them from handing our account on.


I was offered a substantial out of court settlement for my accident (3rd party).


It is now my mission to get justice; a) from both banks by claiming back a full six years of charges and; b) not paying back the full amounts required by the credit companies because the are acting unlawfully by pushing credit onto vulnerable customers!


So far I have got £900 taken off the balance that First Direct had passed on to another credit company and I paid the remaining balance in full. I have now received my full six years of bank statements from First Direct ( and I must say it really is a waste of paper), I am claiming back all charges related to this account, 100% or more!


Abbey next!


I have been successful in offering two credit card companies 50% of the remaining balance too. I did feel really bad about this but I am now coming to terms with this as I am still being offered credit cards left, right and centre! VERY UNFAIR and perhaps unlawful?


It is time that we stood up to these unlawful capitalist institutions that profess to be service providers, for the sake of our children and young people.


Best regards,

Hiya Buck glad to see you have got the ball rolling. You need to start a thread in the First and Abbey forums so you can chart your progress and help others at the same time too. :)

Thanks for your message.


I have previously taken on washing machine manufacturers and double glazing companies with top results! I'm enjoying working on the banks, they are so false!


I will post to First and Abbey.


Kind regards,
