You need to add the total charges and the total interest up to the day you filed your N1 ABG, I have pm`d you the relevant info, I hope it helps good luck, Stone,

 

you will need to send a copy of the spready that I sent you with a covering letter to the Court Manager at Blackpool County court. Just quote your case number etc. and say here is revised schedule of charges as ordered by DJ Bryce on (date) then sign and date it and that should be OK

hi this is the letter i sent to them

 

 

I think in your position I would write back (copy to FOS) something like

 

I refer to your letter dated XXX . This is a totally inadequate reply to my complaint and is obviously just one of your standard replies. considering you have already sent a representative to court appearance case number xxxxx dates xxxx - your letter does not even make sense.

 

I commenced this case and registered my concerns originally in XXXX (date) and since then you have employed solicitors XXXXX to defend your case.

Also you refer to my account and advise me not to incurr any more charges??? Very difficult to do that as you closed my account without warning in June 2007???

 

Dont you think you could at least check your records before just sending me this nonsensical reply???!!

 

the fact remains that you have been informed on several occasions that I am a hardship case - you have not adhered to the recommend banking code practice in this respect - or to the terms of the waiver with the FSA.

 

I had no choice but to pursue my case through the court system and since then through the FOS. The court case caused me considerable anxiety and worsened my health.

 

Reference the FSA and FOS not being involved until the court case is settled you are well aware this does not apply to hardship cases in which you are obliged to at least consider the cicumstances - outside the court system.

 

I will send this copy letter to the FOS and would expect a more personal and appropriate reply within 7 days.

 

(enclose details of income and expenditure if you want to and the new spread sheet - also a copy to the court for their records?)

here is the letter i was going on about only the lil extra as i put in my post how mad i am and it to me sounds they are stalling gggrrrrrr

 

 

 

 

 

 

from copmplaints dept

i refer to your complaint about unauthorised overdraft charges. we believe that your complaint concerns the levels of fairness or lawfulness of the charges if it concerns something else such as admin error please let us know.

 

although we believe the charges are fair clear and lawful abbey along woth other banks and building soc 6 of them by the way

has become in voled in the legal procceedings with the oft in relation to unathorised overdraft charges which we believe will resolve the legal issues regarding the faierness and legalality of your unauthourised overdraft banking charges

 

it would be our normal approach to resolve your complaint through our interna; complaints process as quickly as poss ( mmmmeeeer dont think so when it takes them over a month to reply and acknowledge) thats a laugh

however untill the determination of the legal issues in the abvove procceedings we have asked the fsa to suspend the normal timetable for dealing with bank charges complaints and the fsa has agreed to thid request subject to the conditions that protect your rights

 

given this court case we have asked both the fos and the courts not to procceed with any other case they are hearing until the test case is resolved fos has indicated that as a general proposition it will indeed not to proceed with cases which rely on the legal issues being considered in the test case

similarly you should be aware that if you choose to issue a clain in the courts the bank will immediately apply to the court for an order to stay your action untill resolution fo the banks proceedings with the oft

 

we note that you have raised concerns regarding your finincial situation if you have any additional info to demonstrate you are suffering financial difficulties please send it to us in the encloseed prepaid envlope quopting the above ref no this will allow us to consider your currant situation

to avoid charges in the future please insure that there is enough money in your a/c to cover d/d s and other payments made you might like to consider cdontacting our telephone banking centre on xxxxxxxxxxxx to discuss your financial arrangements and if there is anything we can do to help

(thats another laugh they closed my a/c without me telling them and this letter is not answering anything really i have to let them have my details of the new ammount wich is less than it was orginally) i dont have an a/c with them since they closed it without my knowledge june 07

 

if yopu are experincing fianacial difficulty you might like to consider contacting debt counciling or organasations who provide free help what a cheek isnt it arnt they

 

consumer credit counciling service on tel no xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

CCCS - Free Debt Advice from the UK's Leading Debt Charity bloody cheeky ......

national debt help line no .......... National Debtline, for FREE CONFIDENTIAL and INDEPENDENT ADVICE call 0808 808 4000

alternativly contact cab

 

alternativly call our collecdtions and recoveries operations on ..............

who will be happy to talk through the options avalible to you ( i carnt belive this can you)

please note that if collections and recoveries become involed in the admin of your account it can have a detrimental affect on your credit bureau file

 

we are sorry that we havent been able to respond in full to your compplaint now (have they ever)

but we together with the fsa and the oft think that it is neccesary to resolve the key legal issues before we decide to respond to your complaint we can assure you that once the legal proccedings are completed we will resolve your complaint as quickly as poss and applying to test case principles if at that stage you do not agree (i dont)

with our conclusions you wil of coourse be able to refer your casde to the fos or to the courts

exactly what will happen next will depend on the courts we do not know how long the case will take we have promised to proceed as quickly as possible but inevitably given the importance of the issues being considered this may take many months

to finally resolve

we can assure uou we have registeered your complaint as of the date it was orginally received and have stored it please retain your bank records as this will make it easier for you to support your complaint on resolution of the test case

we will kee[ you updated appropraitley about the procceedings with the oft case you can check the ;atest position on our website at Abbey : Online banking, Mortgages, Savings, Current Accounts, Credit Cards, Personal Loans, Insurance & Inves

the fsa requires us to ensure that your complaint will not be adversely affected by the delay in dealing with it

customers for whom scotland is the most likely jurisdiction should be particularly aware of the following

1 you may choose to take your complaint against us to either the fos or the courts in scotland

2 your rights to refer your complaint to the fos will not be affected the fos provides a comvenient alternative to the courts and is free for consumers however as already explained you should ve aware that the fos has at our request deciced not to determine these complaints for the tome being untill the test case has been decided

3 however if you nonetheless wish to take your claim to the court in scotland you should be aware that the timinng of when you raise a claim against us may be imported as such you you may wish to seek independence advice on filing a claim now to protect your rights although you may have to pay a court fee, if you do this you should be aware thjat the bank will immediatly apply to the court to have your action on hold untill the resolution of the ganks legal procceedings with the oft

yours sincerly

richard harris

head of complaints

 

note not the person who fos said would be intouch with me

 

enc fos fact sheet

which is unorthrised overdrafts etc

 

so now i need to reply to this enclsing spreadsheet of the new charges which is less than the said amount

How about something like:

 

I refer to your letter dated XXX

 

This just about sums up your attitude to my problem. You have sent me a standard letter without considering my personal situation at all. What is the point of advising me how to operate my account - when you closed it without notice in June 2007? Can you not check your records before you reply? Again I refer you to the agreement with the FSA where it states that under the agreement you are obliged to look at hardship cases during the period of the court case. I have on many occasions given you full details of my circumstances and if you check your records you have everything you require. You have forced me to court and worsened my fragile situation and all this stress is making my health situation worse.

 

I repeat my total claim is for XXXX and I will be sending a copy of your letter and my reply to my contact at the FOS for their comments.

 

I suggest that you maybe consider a more personal approach to this problem.

 

 

 

Or words to that effect ( did you send them a sheet of income expenditure before? if so send them a copy and any copies of letters that summarised your situation.

It is still early days yet.

The 'WIN' is far from conclusive, given the Judge's additional comments + reasoning behind his decision.

The dust has to settle first + the ball is firmly in the Banks court.

Peeps will know more as the date for any appeal from the Banks approaches.
