Good morning everybody, Happy Easter :)

 

Just had to share this with everybody cos i'm so shocked!!!

 

Monday 2nd April in a moment of desperation I rang the halifax and asked for my £230 quid in bank charges to be refunded - they're since 2005.

 

The telephone operator said I would receive a call in 5 working days.

 

Just this last few minutes have come off the phone from one of their banking staff who has said they would refund all £230 into my account, no questions asked within the next 48 hours.

 

She openly gave me her name and extension number and I was so shocked was stuttering on the phone.

 

No DPA letter or anything as I already have my statements online and stuff.

 

Only mentioned in the call that if i didn't get a call back within the 5 days would send LBA as I already had all information I needed.

 

I'm so shocked, excited and looking forward to easter now.

 

Don't want to rub anything in to those people who are having long battles with the banks and stuff but to wish you all luck, keep pressing on and thanks to this board for giving me the courage to make the initial call.

 

Thanks and good luck again to you all

Lana xxxxx
