Dear Foxy

 

I did an SAR first and got all my statements, worked out what they had robbed from me then sent this letter:

I am going to take your advice and go for the Madras plus they do a very nice Tandoori salmon, plus pilau rice and a paswari nan. With eight cans of Kronemburg that should wash it down a treat.

 

May I wish you well in reclaiming what is rightfully yours and trust that you will soon be sampling the delights of India (not sure where the Kronembug comes from) from the fruits of your Vanquis claim.

claiming now, they are refusing to send me my statements and are trying to charge me £5 per statement

 

Under the DPA they are legally obliged to send the lot for no more than a tenner.

Not quite right ;)

 

They are under no obligation to sent a 'full' set of statements under the SAR.

 

But they should send a full breakdown of charges.

(Hope I'm right or Martin will tear me a new one :lol: )

Jogs I am suprised you say this-as such a seasoned CAGGER.

Actually-they have no obligation to send a list of charges since this means them possibly saying DE (Disproportionate effort)

Its statements they DO have to supply.

I am not too sure what you mean by "full set" or run down ?

The facts are that a SAR entitles the subject to obtain all that they ask for in the request,as long as the request is specific,that the £10 fee is enclosedand that the Data protection officer is satisfied that the person making the application is the subject of the request.

 

Copy statements therefore should be provided if requested.

Can you guys help?

 

OH has a Vanquis card has done since Dec 2007.

 

Has £2,000 credit limit and £1,200 balance.

 

They increased the APR to 69.9% for a few months and after complaining it is back down to 59.9% APR however the interest is still excessive and I witnessed a phone call back in Febuary wherupon my OH was told by Vanquis that the APR would be reduced to 39.9% APR along with a "Gold" card and the higher, £2,000, credit limit.

 

The credit agreement states the APR is variable between 19.9% APR and 59.9% APR. In increasing the APR to 69.9% they breached the credit agreement, correct? Am I also correct in assuming that whilst they have not refunded the overcharged interest, they remain in default of the credit agreement? Or does lowering the APR back to 59.9% alone resolve the default?

 

What can we do to clear the balance without paying so much interest? The account has been run flawlessly and stopping paying is not an option as my OH has worked very hard to improve his credit rating exponentially over the last couple of years and we don't want to put that effort to waste.

 

Transferring the balance away is unfortunately not viable either as although his credit score is much better than it used to be, he still can't get a better deal, because of one last outstanding default and it's swings and roundabouts as to whether to plough the money into clearing Vanquis or the Default. Cap One offered a classic at 34.9% but only a £500 limit so not enough to transfer the balance, so we cancelled the application. I'd offer to transfer it myself but with my poor credit history I'm not eligible for a better deal, either.

 

Any letter templates or regulations you could point me to would be very much appreciated. All we want to do is clear the balance in a respectable manner in line with the 39.9% APR that they promised when they upgraded the accuont in February.

 

Thanx in advance!
