Hi to everyone in the HSBC forum.

 

I think I have 'Sorted' Barclays out and now intend to go after HSBC. I had huge problems with them after my first wife died, after clearing the mess they left me in I changed banks in 1999.

 

So, first off, S.A.R. to find out what information they still hold on me.

 

Also I had better take time to consider what interest to charge.

 

This could be a long haul, but with everything you guys have taught me, I feel like a challenge, particularly as Barclays are funding it. I am watching the 'Six Year Treads' with great interest.

I have no doubt I will need some advise, so thank you in advance.

Well thank you, nettyg.

 

I am not going to rush into this, particularly with the developments ongoing on this site. It may involve not only HSBC but the old Midland Bank and Midland Card Services, I also want to make sure I have got the wording spot on for my S.A.R. Hum, could be an interesting one !!!

 

Thank you for the welcome :)

O.K., A quick update.

 

I walked into my old HSBC branch today and asked for my old account No's. A very helpful Clark took my details and went behind her P.C.

As I closed this account in Jan. 1999 I did not hold out much hope.

Surprise, surprise after a few minutes and a few security questions she reappeared with my old info. RESULT 1 !!! :D

 

This tells me that if they have that info. at the branch they should have my statements somewhere. ;)

 

Some advice please :- I intend to go after my old HSBC current account charges, my even older Midland account charges and a old Midland card services credit card. Do I split this into three claims or keep it as one ?

I now have all the account No's

 

Also does anyone have a link to a good 'Pre 6 years S.A.R.' please, I have seen so many over the last 2 weeks. :confused:

 

Many thanks in advance,

 

Lex

I would personally do it as three separate claims and if you've got the time, tackle them one at a time so as not to get too confused :)

 

I would imagine the current S.A.R. would be sufficient, just altering minor details for your own circumstances. In fact just having another read through the standard S.A.R. letter, it should be fine.

 

They'll most likely try and delay past the 40 days saying something along the lines of "Please give us more time as the information you have requested is held in archive format etc..." It's up to you if you decide to or not BUT I personally wouldn't and once they go past the 40 days under the DPA, file for Non-Compliance, info here http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bank-templates-library/6986-data-protection-act-non.html

 

Good luck with your claim and again, welcome :)

This is very interesting.

Indeed, if they can call up an old ac no, then what else can they do? :-D

The data request asks for all data held on you... this is what you require, all the data no matter how old it is :-D

Oooooooo very interesting. Ive already been into my local branch basically requesting the same. The lady was much less then helpful and made me wait ages and ages and finally came back saying "I suppose it to reclaim bank charges huh ?? I just said , no actually, its to help find where my money went, Im getting a divorce........ a lie I know, but I thought it worth a try, she just grinned knowlingly and said, well sorry we dont hold records going back that far. We cant help you Im afraid........ but nvm Ive sent off SAR to HSBC Data Protection address and will just have to wait and see what they come back with. But now I know they have some info going back much further I will challenge them with this if they come back with NADA on my SAR letter. But thanks crusher for the reference to this post. Much appreciated. Fendy xx

Hi Pattacake,

 

I am sorry I don't know your claim, but unless it's very large with a number of older charges on it, it is properly not worth trying for overdraft interest.

It can be very difficult to work out and easy to make a mistake, but I stand to be corrected ??

pattacake best to start your own thread by clicking this button here newthread.gif

 

Interest charge is usually the interest charged for being overdrawn the total charges relate to when you have gone over an agreed limit both of these charges can be claimed back. :-)

be careful though.... only the interest that was charged on your charges can be claimed, the complex spreadsheet does this. As GMMN says, its best to have your own thread.

Bye The Way,

 

Is anyone else going a ' Pre Six Year Only ' claim with HSBC. As I have no 'post six year' charges from them (that was Barclays job ;)) I wonder how much of a problem this will put in my way ?
