Hi Judi,

I am looking into claiming compensation back, but it does not seem an easy task. You need to be able to quantify the damages and that can be well, quite challenging.

My idea is to compare my pattern of bank charges against my credit report to try and find some trends. At present I have been thinking too much about CI to be able to do this properly, but I have but my bank charges in a spreadsheet and looked at them on a month on month basis for the last 5 years. It does make some interesting reading. I would also like to compare the percentage of charges against what my wages were at the time.


Also when I was overdrawn the bank would tell me I could extend my o/d only to have that declined. Then they would offer me a loan, and have that declined as well making me to go to sub-prime lenders with higher interest rates and so on.


I would like to see if there are any patterns emerging. i.e. high bank charge and opening of a loan, however this may take some time and effort and I am not so convinced that I can raise a valid arguement. Well, let me re-phrase that, I can prove the financial difficulty they put me under, but quantifying it is challenging.


So...just a few thoughts. Don't jump into it head first. It is easy to get carried away by emotions (i know). My feelings at the moment are that this is very difficult and maybe not worth it.


Drop by me thread and have a read. Butterfly...stop by and say hi.


As for the ppi you should be able to claim this one back as it appears to have been missold, and you can claim back interest on it.


As for taking this further if you end up outside a fast track then you are liable for charges which can run into thousands. Think long and hard about it. I am.

Actually I was having a think about this one on my way in to work today.

As the sum is quite low you would not incurr costs if you lost, so you might as well go for it.

I belive the limit for fast track cases are £5000.

Not sure what you mean by "lost telephone numbers"

Bear in mind the £750 limit only relates to the advocate's trial/preparation costs, there's also a possible further £250 trial costs if the winning party's legal representative is in court and the court thinks it's reasonable that that representative can attend.


In the fast track the other costs are assessed on a summary basis but aren't capped in the same way, so there could well be other costs to pay on top of the trial costs.

If in doubt read the



If still in doubt - ask!
