Methinks you haven't quite got the sequence of events down just yet.

 

When you refer to a "prelim letter" are you referring to the first letter asking for your charges back or are you making your SAR?

 

Step 1 = Send off your SAR with your tenner asking for the list of charges/6 years statement.

 

Step 2 = When you have your statements, and you know how much you are owed then write to the bank asking for it back.

 

Step 3 = When they don't send you a cheque/fill your account with rupees you send your LBA.

 

If you intend using the FOS you need to wait 8 weeks after step 2 before you make your complaint.

 

If you are intending using the FOS you can't claim the 8% statutory interest as that is something that is awarded by the court.

 

And yes, you are recommended to use recorded delivery for any dealings you have with the bank where you want to know when they received the letter.

ah right , cheers for your help, what about the ten pound fee for the statements

 

If you are sending the prelim letter there is no need to send any remittance, that is only for Subject Access Request to get statement copies or list of charges and you say you already have your statements.

I used the address that my account is held at

2. if i am not requesting interest do i just take the sentence about interest out and leave this bit in

 

Not sure I wrote claiming interest, but I think it would look kinda odd to include a sentence about something you are not claiming in.

 

"I calculate that you have taken £@@@@@

I enclose a schedule of the charges which I am claiming with this letter."

 

3. what address have i to put on my envelope

 

4. its just the letter and my schedule of charges i include - yes

 

Good luck with your claim!

1. You should be writing to the Customer Relations Unit, The Forthstone, 56 South Gyle Crescent, Edinburgh EH12 9LE. Send by Recorded Delivery just so you can track the letter.

 

2. If you're not actually claiming interest, take out the reference to it, altho I included the interest in my list of bank charges and made a mention to it but did not specifically claim it, just mentioned that if applied to the total of the charges, it would add to the sum claimed back.

 

3. As in address above.

 

4. Yes, altho you can leave in the interest column as in 2. above.

 

Just have a bit patience, you will get your money back.

right thats sorted now, last thing before i post it off, is this the right letter to send off in scotland

 

"I now understand that the regime of fees which you have been applying to my account in relation to direct debit refusals, exceeding overdraft limits and so forth are unlawful at Common Law and contrary to consumer regulations. If you say that they are not, then will you please demonstrate this by letting me have a full breakdown of the costs to which you have been put by as a result of my breaches, in order to reassure me that your charges really do reflect your costs."

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
