When i spoke to someone at Goldfish regarding statements for the past 6 years, i was Quoted £5.00 per statement?! so if me maths is rate that comes to £360.

So if I send a cheque for £10 do i only get 2 statements.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Has anyone been sucesful in claiming back from Goldfish?

Ta very much, great site!

Baby boy Jasper,

 

Don't let Goldfish bully you. Do not make telephone requests.

 

Start the ball rolling by sending the Subject Access Request letter and attach the correct fee of £10 required by law. That is what the law says. If they refuse to comply after 40 days, they would be breaking the law. Send your letter RECORDED delivery.

 

The person you spoke to on telephone maybe inexperienced in your request.

I sent my SAR to Goldfish with £10.00 cheque which they tried to pay apply to my CC account, but cheque bounced! Thought I'd c****d up but was just about to send a postal order when low and behold statements arrived along with a letter basically saying that they knew why I was asking for the statements and offering the difference between my claim and the OFT's recommended £12.00. Have just replied rejecting with modified prelim let saying thanks but no thanks and adding compound contractual interest. Lets see what happens now. Good luck, just send SAR with £10 and take it from there.

I have received confirmation today from Goldfish regarding my request for statements (D.A.R.).

They say that the 40 days to carry out this request should be concluded by 14 April '07.

Oh & they have also taken the £10 payment (postal order).

It seems ages since I was on here last, anyway I have received copies of statements & an offer exactly 40 days to the day that I requested them.

It seems they have carried out all the work & come up with an offer.

The list of charges are on one page with two totals.

1 are the actual charges they say they have charged me since March '01.

The next total is their offer which is an insult. Basically it is £550 less than the charges they have taken off me.

The accompaning letter goes through all the jargon of "we feel the charges are fair & we have now set the target to £12 charge level as set by the OFT"

They want me to sign & accept this approval of the 'offer' in 'full & Final settlement of my complaint.

The account has been over it's limit for a while even though i have no card & the fact that they 'closed'? it over 2 years ago.

The refund would be placed into the account.

However, the account is not used now as they have issued a 'Default Notice fee' to it as well (& charged for it) Plus, I am having to pay the account back through a debt managment scheme.

 

Please could someone advise me please as what to do next!?:confused:

Carry on with your claim, send a letter saying you are disappointed with their response and that you will accept this amount only as partial settlement and that you will proceed with your claim as stated. What happened to me is that they then came back to you offering the full amount less any interest that you may have added on. I had added compound contractual interest to my claim. At this point I accepted, but it is totally up to you if you want to proceed with the interest aspect. In my case it was all done and dusted quickly. It started exactly the same as yours, with my statement came their calculations of what they presumed I would be asking for.

Good luck - not that you will need it - they obviously know that they have to give it back sooner rather than later so dont tend to waste their time (or ours) by taking it to the wire like some other banks are!

Hope this helped - I know it is encouraging to hear of others succeeding.

I sent Goldfish a request for statments and they took 38 days to send them. They had totalled all my charges for me and it came to £875. They said that as a goodwill jesture they will refund me £299. I sent them a Letter Before Action letter saying no, I wanted the full amount and they had 14 days. ON the 14th day,today,I got a letter saying they admit no wrong doings but as a goodwill jesture, they will refund me the £875.

I WIN, THEY LOSE!! This site has helped me alot.

Hi Jasper

 

My LBA went to Goldfish on Friday (I had a similar response and offer to my SAR as you). I then received an offer to refund all the charges (but not interest) on Saturday as a response to my Prelim.

 

I am however going to push on with my claim for contractual interest (around £500).

 

Hopefully you'll have your 100% charge refund letter through shortly

Hi jubaxt,

I had the same happen to me regarding the tracking.

No one had actually signed for it at their end.

However I did eventually receive a letter from Goldfish stating that they had received the request & that it would be dealt with within 40 working days.

It's when you get a letter of offer from them that you have to laugh (or cry) when they insult you with the 'stupid' low refund.

I got the letters etc off them. I got the letter saying they will refund the £875. Im still wating for a cheque off them. The account was closed but I owed £25. When I called them today, the account is now 0 and closed. But she says on her screen there is no copy of the letter of acceptance I returned to them nearly 2 weeks ago. I have said to her that my account has been paid off with part of my £875, so wheres the rest. She is going to make some phone calls for me.

On her screen, she said that a letter for the refund of £875 was sent out to me. They are waiting for a response!! I said I sent it over a week ago, recorded delivery. She couldnt explain how my account was now paid up when Ive made no payments!

I said I need an answer by tuesday! Keep you posted.....
