What happens if you try to reclaim charges from a bank that you are maxed out on a 4K overdraft with? Am frightened now as I have sent a letter to Royal Bank of Scotland regarding bank charges....what if they ask for OD back all at once coz i aint got it????

 

This was my previous post - does anyone know if RBS may ask for full payment of OD and if so what happend if im not in a position to pay off in full?

They might.

 

How much are your charges compared to your o/d? Would the repayment of charges take a big chunk off that?

 

Open a parachute account now just in case. If they close your acount, it will be harder to open a new one if your bank plays silly b#ggars.

 

If they insist on immediate repayment, you can stall by stating that as some of the o/d is due to their charges, the total amount is in dispute. Once you have your money back, see how much you still owe them, and negotiate a repayment schedule, insisting they freeze interest until they're paid off.

You really do have to read the FAQ section - you probably missed my previous post so here it is again. The answers to your questions are in there :)

Referal Charge = When the bank decides to pay an item on your account (SO/DD/cheque) that takes you over your limit.

£30 a pop nowadays. :mad: Yes as Paul says they are also unlawful.

Good luck & all the best!

 

edit: they (referal charges) are applied on the sixth working day the month after the "offences" occured. Its not immediately obvious what they are for so you'd need to look back if you wanted to see what they related to. I wouldn't bother doing this though as regardless of why they've charged you, they're unlawful in any case. You can claim them all back anyways!

After requesting RBS Statements and going through for the obvious charges, ive come across charges that just say

 

:-

chg to 17 may a/c 1******* 30.00

 

from what i can see the normal charge to my account for the month (royalties gold) should have been about £10 per month and it is so in some months - so why in other would it be £30 or so??

 

Any ideas please as im trying to compile what they owe me at the moment and need to know wether or not to include these??

Firstly - it is very difficult to give a considered response when you post a new thread for each question - I have now merged all your threads - please update to this thread, then people will more easily be able to help.

 

Is the normal monthly charge showing as well as this charge?

No, the normal monthly charge is usallu £10 per month judging by most other statements, when RBS sent me these statements they had already underlined the charges, they hadnt underlined the ones at £10 per month but they had underlined the ones above this amount, £20 - £40 or so - one months was even £90.00. This is why i',m confused as i know there is a monthly chage for the royalties account which was £10.

LOL....If they have been so kind as to identify them as unlawful charges themselves, then I would incude them in your claim - only fair not to disappoint them after they have gone to so much trouble!! :lol:

This is the referal charge I was talking about earlier. Read my post above 23:57 on 28th April again. If you're still not sure get them to explain it to you in your local branch - thats what we're here for. Ask for a copy of the leaflet that explains charges as well.

Here's my original thread on how they're worked out, maybe this will help:

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=2794

Yes charges are confusing, at times one wonders if they're set out like that deliberately.

Hi - i get what youre saying, however sometimes I have a referral fee in a month and also a charge that is more than the usual £10 account charge, this is where i'm getting confused - if ive already been charged a referral charge one month how come i'm being charges on some occasions more that the standard £10 monthly fee?

That's their problem - once you send the prelim letter they will have the opportunity to explain themselves. If they do, then knock it off the total - if they don't then claim it back.

 

If your agreement was for a £10 fee to be paid each month as a service charge, then these figures cannot be justified.
