Just sent myself an e-mail home to remind me to watch Martin Lewis on Tonight with Trevor McDonald at 8 o'clock where the programme is dedicated to unfair bank charges.

 

Compulsive viewing for us don't you think :-)

Lets hope that after the exposure the great bank charges rip-off is getting lately the growing swell of claims turns into a nightmare tidal wave for the banks.

 

Well said Alan, all members familiar with the process should help the newcomers out, the more people that carry through their claims the better for everyone. (except the banks :D)

At last got through !!!I thought it was quite well done although I think it should have been longer than 30 minutes.Looks like the computers were on in everyones house after that.Didnt actually give any links but I guess everyone will be doing the google search and its there ok.Interesting to see how things will go from here.Will they launch a counter attack if claims become too much ?I reckon its a good idea to get some post office and Royal mail shares now.......They look set to make lots of money from this as well as the claimants !!

Finally, I've managed to get on the forum!! I forgot about the programme and missed it [Eastenders, I'm ashamed to say!]. Wondered if anyone would have a link or be able to upload it for people like me who missed it? I've been told that everyone seemed to be on our side, and the bank boss couldn't explain the charges.

It was brilliant indeed. I must admit I thought about Dave's boiler and thought it must have been filmed before the disaster with the boiler. Surprised at how young he is. When I heard the French accent I knew that was Bookworm. Ooh la la.:razz: Is Lisa Dudek, who was also featured one of our members I wonder.:cool:

 

Seriously though, it has taken me ages to get on the website tonight so I hope the site doesn't crash at this crucial time. The number of people signing up is awesome, and yes, of course we will all try and help mods with the newbies. I was a bit disappointed that Martin Lewis was emphasising that you can only claim for 6 years worth, when there are people (in particular SpiceSkull and AlanfromDerby) who are testing the boundaries by going further back in time, but I suppose that technically he might be correct.

 

Bloke from the BBA did nothing to convince anyone that charges are justifiable, but that is because they can't be justified. The campaign is certainly gathering momentum.:D

Wow busy tonight.

 

Thought the show was great. Glad more people will know. Hope fully this will lead to thenks re-visiting their policies on this.

 

Could lead to a back lash though. Just accepted my offer from the bank, but deleted the confidentiality part. Hope they don't change their minds now! ;-)

I don't usually think much of those investigative programmes on tv since they tend

to promise much but produce very little. This was different- well thought out and constructed. It is just a shame that it was Martin interviewing the guy from BBA

and not Dave. I don't think he would have let him get away with claiming that

what they charged was what it cost!

Thank god he wasn't Pinocchio or Martin would be blind in one eye.
