Hi Welsh


Well, it would seem to me that this is a case of your facilities of account being "down-graded" as a direct and sole result of the Barclay's take over.


Did you make a written complaint and have you received a written response stating that your banking history is being defaulted back to "newbie" customer?


I would imagine that you have a legitimate case to put to the Banking Ombudsman. I would certainly make a written complaint to Barclays H/O.


Any reason why you wouldn't consider opening a parachute account with an alternative bank that does offer debitcard facilties as standard?

3 Active Claims:

Barclays Refund of Bank Charges (Sole account) - Applied to lift court ordered Stay

Barclays Refund of Bank Charges (Joint account) - Awaiting court date

Barclays Refund of Bank Charges (Joint account) Pre-6 yrs- LBA sent.



3 Wins :

Barclays t/a The Woolwich (Data Protection Act breach costs & compliance)

HSBC (on behalf of brother)

Settled Out of Court - £3,874.76

Alliance & Leicester (on behalf of friend)

Settled Out of Court - £723.41

I'm having "great fun" with Barclays over this move!


Before they moved my accounts (1 current, 2 savings) from woolwich to barclays I went to my woolwich branch, asked them to cancel all standing orders / direct debits, and not to transfer anything to barclays as I do not want to bank with barclays, I've moved elsewhere.


Barclays have re-instated all the canceled direct debits, to a new barclays current account. and even better, contacted the tax credit agency and changed the payment details on our child tax credits to the new barclays account, again without our permission.


I've started getting letters from places like sky, TV licence, BT over the last few days, complaining that my Direct debit payments have failed on the new barclays account that I didn't want!


Whats the bet that I have to sue barclays again to recover the charges they are undoubtedly racking up on this new account with all the direct debits that they have re-instated without my permission?
