"There are no official figures for the number of customers that have successfully reclaimed bank charges imposed for slipping accidentally overdrawn over the last six years. However, evidence from campaign groups such as the Consumer Action Group puts the figure at around £200m for around 20,000 consumers that have complained."

While any news is good news, I cant see it being 200,000,000 for 20,000 customers.

 

That means that each customer has AVERAGED 10k each. Think it might be nearer 20,000,000


Whatever I post is my opinion and should be taken as such, an opinion. While it is what I believe and is offered in good faith, it should not be taken as a statement of truth

Perhaps the members and there families have had many accounts between them, I am dealing with both mine and my husbands accounts and there are still many many people out there who have not started claiming yet.

According to this site, 6 million has been recovered. Lets say 20% fill the survey that would account for 30 million. And I think thats generous.

 

They say "However, evidence from campaign groups such as the Consumer Action Group puts the figure at around £200m for around 20,000 consumers that have complained"

 

The site at posting quotes 5713479 for 4543 people

 

20,000/4543 is 4.4

5713479X4.4 is 25 million so there statistic they quote as from this site do not add up.

 

This sites figures show that the average claim is 1257 so for this article to claim the average is 800% more is, IMHO, without foundation.
