I rang barclays to cancel my additions acccount 14.50 a month. And was told by the advisor that I would be paying more in interest per month on my overdraft (£1000) than what the additions was costing. Now I think I've been lied to.


Last month I paid 14.50 additions fee and about 5 in interest as my acoounts probably somewhere between 500 and 1000 overdrawn.


There interest on a normal current account agreed overdraft is 15.6 EAR.


How would I work out what the monthly interest would be if say I was £1000 overdrawn all month? Is it cheaper than £19.50? If it is I will be complaining.

08/03/07 Standard Letter from Barlclays saying they are looking in to my complaint received

I have two current accounts, each with agreed 500 overdraft, which lately I've been using pretty much continuously. I seem to pay between 5-7 quid per month per account. Don't ask me how they work it out, but it sounds as if it's a borderline case in your account.



Barclays (2 accounts) WON

Lloyds TSB (Daughter's) WON


Cohen's: WON (discontinued)

DLC: Given up, gone away.

I am NOT a legal or financial expert. There are many CAG members and staff who are better qualified. Please do not make major decisions based on my advice alone.
