I received the following today in response to my preliminary response dated 8th May - success, full amount of £90 refunded.

 

 

 

I am contacting you in response to your recent letter concerning your cahoot flexible loan account.

 

I have taken ownership of your case in order to provide a response to the issues raised in your letter.

 

We do not accept that cahoot's charges are unfair under recent Consumer regulations. The object of these Regulations was not price control nor were they intended to interfere with people's freedom to agree the terms of their contracts.

 

It is well known that banks make charges and cahoot's charges are in line with those of other banks. The terms and conditions of the account and the charges that apply are clear and fair and were provided to you at the time you opened it. You freely agreed to the terms and conditions and the charges when you opened the account. You were not under any obligation to do so and could have gone to another bank if you did not agree to the charges. Equally, you are free to move your account to another bank at any time if you do not agree with the charges.

 

In any event, we do not agree that the charges are disproportionate. The charges are reasonable and proportionate to the administrative costs incurred by cahoot.

 

Having reviewed the history of your accounts I can see that in general your account has been well managed and the charges detailed in your letter represent uncharacteristic breaches of our terms and conditions. Given this and the fact that you have been a customer for almost three years I am willing to consider a refund as a gesture of goodwill.

 

A protracted discussion regarding these charges is in neither parties interest so I have arranged for the requested amount of £90.00 to be re-credited to your account. This is made as a gesture of goodwill and I would again like to re-iterate that we do not accept our charges are unfair or disproportionate.

 

I hope that this resolution is to your satisfaction. I'd be grateful if you could email me at service.relationship.team@cahoot.com to confirm that you accept this payment in settlement of your complaint.

 

Should you require any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me again at service.relationship.team@cahoot.com .

 

Kind regards

 

David Cafferty

Service Relationship Manager, cahoot
