Hey there all,

 

I'm aiming to claim back charges from RBS, relating to a now closed (by them) Student Royalties Account. The reason for it closing was....can u guess?;) Yup, Hundereds and hundereds of £s of charges. :mad:

 

I put my head in the sand, ignored letters from them (and debit collection agencies), and moved on. I figured, "if they want to take me to court, let them". But as you can imagine, or may know, I always had that nagging sense that it had to be sorted out some day. Well, when I heard about reclaiming bank charges I fugured now is the time.

 

At the moment, I have one kinda urgent question Re: DPA/ SAR/more than 6 yrs of details..

 

-I have an outstanding DPA request - letter requesting all transactions on account for last 6 years. No reply yet. I've just read that it's possible to request (and be provided with) info for a longer period. I'd like to do this (get details back to Autum 1998). So I was wondering....

 

What's the best plan of action?

Should I call them and request the info further back be added to the SAR? Or will I have to write another letter to them?

If so, will I have to enclose another £10?

 

Any advice much Appreciated icon7.gif

Hi Anon.

You will probably have to send another SARs request, stipulating that you want details of all transactions on your account from the date it was opened.

The big problem is that we are not sure how far back the bank's records go. This is something that we are trying to find out at the moment.

 

Regards, Rooster.

Thanks Rooster :)

 

I will give them a phone just incase...then send an additional letter if that gets me nowhere. Only a couple extra years of info to get, but if my recollections are correct, it should be worth the extra £10.

 

The annoying thing is I remember having statements #s 1-100 in date order in a polyfile. I think I threw them out icon9.gif!! lol

What SAR letter did you use though? If you used the one in the templates area on this site, at no point does it say you are only after 6 years worth of statements.

 

A standard DPA request is for ALL information that the bank holds on you - and not just statements - EVERYTHING. It is a common misconception because you can only claim back 6 years that the bank is also only entitled to supply you with 6 years worth of statements.

 

If you have sent the SAR from the templates area then I don't think you need to worry right now about sending further letters or ringing them up because your DPA request is requesting everything. If the bank come back with just 6 years of statements (which they might, they did to me) then you can respond by saying that you require all information they hold, not just 6 years and unless they confirm that is all they hold you will take them to court for non-compliance.

Thanks for your reply T4FF,

 

Unfortunately, the letter I sent was not the template from this site (I only joined last night) - but an amalgam of DPA letters from various other sites, and requests statements from the last 6 years (I was under the misconception stated in your post!).

 

If I have to send a further DPA (which may be the case), would you advise I just use the CAG template? Is there anything I should add to it, as a 'pre-emptive rebutal' to any refusal on their part to send the 6yrs+ info?

 

Basically, a less-crude version of "and don't bother wasting my time with [insert stalling tactics]. This is not relevant because xxxx."

Well what I would do would be to add something like this on the end:

 

"A data access request requires that you disclose ALL information you hold on me, I will not accept the supplying of 6 years worth of statements as you fully complying with my request when I am fully aware that you hold data for xxxx years".

 

In the general forums, there is currently a thread running called "how far back have you got statements" or something like that, find out the furthest back RBS has gone from that thread and add that in here. I don't know if will do the trick but I can't see the harm in adding this in from the start. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't even read the SARs though...

Well got my first six years of statements from RBS, as per my first DPA request. And about to send second DPA. I intend to include a request for transactions/charges over +6 years (as mentioned above), and also a request for ALL transactions/charges on my RBS VISA card. As always(!!) I have a few questions -

 

My understanding is that this is ok (including 2 accounts in 1 SAR). Am I right on this?

 

Both these accounts have gone in to default. Is there any other info it would be useful to have further down the line given this, and is possible to request in my SAR?

In particular, the last few transactions (credits) on my final statement for my Royalties account are causing me some confusion.

 

BAC(automated pay in) - FROM SUSPENSE - £xxx (looks like partial refund of interest since default of account - I have subtracted this from my fees total)

 

IBP(inter bank payment) - BAL TO BBD FINCON - £xxxx (the full amount of my outstanding balance credited to account, bringing the balance to NIL. What is this all about?)

 

As always, any input would be most appreciated :)

Here is a draft of my second Data Protection Act, doe sit look ok?

 

 

Data Protection Team

xx May 2007

 

 

Data Protection Act 1998 Subject Access Request

 

 

Dear Sir/Madam,

 

Anon1234

Student Royalties Account Sort Code: xx-xx-xx Account Number: xxxxxxxx

RBS VISA Classic Staircase Card Number: xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx

 

Under the Data Protection Act 1984 and 1998, and including the right of subject access under these acts, please supply me with a complete list of transactions and charges relating to my banking history with your organisation, regards the above accounts. Alternatively a complete set of bank statements for those periods will be acceptable.

 

Please note, as regards my Student Royalties Account (Sort Code: xx-xx-xx; Account #:xxxxxxxx)

i) Since I am already in receipt of statements from xx/xx/xxxx to xx/xx/xxxx, I shall not require details of transactions between these dates. I will however require all details of transactions on this account up to and including the date of xx/xx/xxxx.

ii) I require that you provide the contact details (address, telephone number) of the organisation detailed as XXXXXXX which credited my account on xx/xx/xxxx with the sum of £XXXX.XX.

 

As stated above, I also require a complete list of all transactions and charges relating to my Royal Bank of Scotland VISA Credit Card (Card #: xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx)

 

Additionally, where there has been any event in my accounts histories over this period which has required manual intervention by any member of your staff, or any other person, I require disclosure of any indication or notes which have either caused or resulted in that manual intervention, or other evidence of that manual intervention in relation to my banking business with you. If you are unable to supply this data because there has been no such manual intervention, then please be so kind as to confirm this in your response.

 

If you store any of the older records on microfiche, please be aware that the Information Commissioner deems this to be a relevant filing system under the Act. As such, any microfiche data must be sent to me in fully legible and comprehensible form.

 

I enclose the statutory maximum fee of £10. I look forward to your response within the maximum 40 day time limit under the 1998 Act.

 

 

Yours faithfully,

 

 

Anon1234

 

ENC:

-Postal order to the sum of £10

Only thing I might change (assuming you haven't sent it) is...

 

a complete set of bank statements for those periods will be acceptable.

Up to that point you haven't mentioned any periods, so...

 

a complete set of bank statements for the periods listed below will be acceptable.

 

...might make more sense.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
