    • In a strange twist of fate he called me yesterday and agreed to refund me on the car. I am due to drop it off on Friday and hope he sticks to his word. I am still going to produce the rejection letter as a safety net in any case.   Thanks to those who have replied on this post. I will keep it updated.   Mark.
    • Hi there my husband has a Vanquis card i applied to get the ROP refunded which they shut me down on this was back in Aug 2018 on the letter they sent him telling him no they did state they would cancel the ROP with immediate effect, roll on to this week and i come across one of his statements and low an behold they are still taking it, so my question as they have still been taking it i have obviously phoned them to get it stopped and the past 2 years refunded do i use the CISheet spreadsheet to work out the interest he has been charged on these payments his statements show a 3.99% monthly which i believe is 59.93% APR can someone confirm my calculations please im a bit rusty, i also have asked them to recalculate his ROP interest refund as i heard some were wrong and i've asked them to re look at the complete refund claim as well whilst they are at it, if im reclaiming the whole lot is this again the CISheet at 59.93% as 1 £5.50 ROP charge from oct 2009 shows £876.77 interest ??   any help would be great not done this for a long time last one was bank charges lol.
    • Hi, if a terminated credit card claim has been struck out by the court, appealed and lost (ie still struck out) - is the balance therefore zero? Can a 2nd claim for the same card (terminated>6yrs ago) be presented against me for a different amount.
    • When did you pay the £20? was it before the default letter or after?  Exact date and to whom the £20 was paid is key to calculating the SB date.  It could be construed that paying £20 or any figure was an acknowledgement of the debt and could re-start the SB clock.   Important to understand the date but I concur with the other CAGers that it is probably not something to worry about.   As an aside I fought (and won) an argument with Lowells over the default date.  They were trying to assert that the Default date was later than it was but I was able to disabuse them of that idea thanks to having the original Default Letter plus also getting it confirmed by the original lender (Vanquis).  They sent me the exact same copy of the Default Notice as part of their SAR response so I say again a good idea to SAR Mint so you know where you are and you are then ready to rebuff any bullshit from the DCA.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

I am helping my brother out with reclaiming some of hs bank charges over the past 3 years.

 

I have had disputes of my own with banks and have won every case that was taken to court. So i know the roughly what i am doing. However my brother has had 14 x £10, 3 x £15, 2 x £25, 15 x £30, and 1 x £35 and from going though the all the information in the past when i claimed i am aware that a £12 charge for late payment on credit cards is accaptable. does this apply to bank accounts

 

what charges should he try to reclaim?

 

Many thanks in advance to everyone how will help!

The £10 charge may be an account fee eg an Additions a/c. If so, it's not claimable

IMHO

 

Whether it's disguised as a service or is a blatant penalty charge, it must still be reasonable:

 

OFT Report:

“ ... default charge provisions are open to challenge on grounds of unfairness if they have the object of raising more in revenue than is reasonably expected to be necessary ..."

 

“ ... a contract term is likely to be unfair if it requires consumers to pay more as a result of a default than the court would order them to pay if they were sued for breach of contract.”

 

“ … a default charge should not exceed a reasonable pre-estimate of the administrative costs”

 

“We are not suggesting that default fees should be set at £12, and a court will certainly not consider that a default fee is fair just because it is below the threshold”

 

The scenario where the banks are offering everything above £12 back is the most disgraceful attitude from a financial institution - it's a cynical and deliberate (mis-)reading of the OFT report.

 

Don't let them get away with it. Ask for them all back, even the £10 ones - they are still penalties.

You can't claim additions fees. They are clearly a fee for a service you asked for.

The only ones you can claim are the ones for £25 and above.

Depending on how far your claim goes back, look out for these charges.

 

UNPAIDS OUT

UNAUTH O/D FEE

PAID REFERRAL FEE

 

Dont get silly and try it on by being greedy, only claim back what you are entitled to, or you may find yourself pying THEM!

Thanks very much to every ones post so far!

 

I should point out that they where all UNPAIDS OUT or PAID REFERRAL FEE

 

I have not included his ADDITIONS ACCOUNT FEES , although he only had some of those ADDITIONS ACCOUNT FEES earlier on but then his account was changed to a student account these ADDITIONS ACCOUNT FEES where then WAVERED for the duration.

 

The £10 and £15 pound charges probably all occured during this time while hiss account was a student account? then the larger charges £25 to £35 have happened after he left uni, has anyone else experenced this?

 

And if this is the case are Barclays saying that it cost them less to process a students for going overdrawn!?! LOL

 

Once again thank you everyone so far and thanks to all that help that i am going to receive!
