    • U.B.  Thank you for the search options.   No address given by police, it is a late mid range vehicle. Plenty of witnesses. she is nearly 100    Seems a bit weird that if she was driving a car the insurance details would have to be given.     
    • Send an SAR to the LMO. Assemble all the evidence of the payments that she has made. Please post up a copy of the letter which you have received – in PDF format but redacted felt identifiers. No, neither trading standards nor the ombudsman will help. See what an SAR produces and then we can start to give some advice. If she has all the evidence of payments then clearly there is some inaccurate data processing going on and this would give you a good basis to proceed upon.
    • Do you have the drivers address? What kind of car was it – just to get an idea as to whether the driver might have money. Other witnesses? You need to keep very careful notes of what has happened, all medical treatment, prognosis. How old is your mother?
    • No I don't believe the Police are required to provide other drivers Insurance details.   Make a search for the Insurers using the following website   askMID WWW.ASKMID.COM     If the drivers vehicle is shown to not be Insured, then a claim to the MIB can be made.   https://www.mib.org.uk/    
    • Hi   Some advice would be highly appreciated. My mother bought a set of Elvis Presley coins from London Mint Office in October and agreed to pay in 3 instalments. She paid first instalment in October, second in November, both payments showing on her Virgin Money Internet banking account as cleared to LMO. Last payment is due 15th of December. My mother kept up with the payments as agreed.  On Friday which was the 3rd of December, she got a late payment letter from the LMO saying she's made no payments since getting the coins which isn't true as like I said she always keeps proof of payment. She has good credit rating and never missed payments on anything. She called customer service for them say to her that they see no payments on her account and says its probably account department who haven't updated her account to reflect payments and it would be resolved after he emailed them. She checked her LMO office account and it STILL says she owes them money. So she emailed their customer service email with proof of payments with her address and customer number, no reply to that either. The letter made clear threats of debt collectors for money they already have! She's made it clear she will not be paying any late payment charges as their accusations aren't justified and clearly incompetence on their end. After reading reviews, this is a common trick LMO pull on people.  So what do we do from here if she gets no reply to her emails or nothing gets resolved via phone? Would taking this to ombudsman and trading standards be any help?   Thank you.

I am still confused about this interest that Abbey have debited from my account over the two years. I still get it to be £0.91. I tried to download the openoffice last night because I don't have Excel to use the spreadsheet for interest caculation. It told ne it would take 6 hours so I left it overnight and when I got up this morning my computer had an error on it!!!!!!!!

What can I do?

I'm gonna go with my original calculation of £0.91 as I've gone through the statements again and again. I reckon that is probably right as am only overdrawn for a few days before the salaries go in again.

Gonna post it today!!

Letter recieved from Abbey today:

 

26 July 2006.

 

Dear Chica,

Thank you for your letters of 26 June 2006 and 12 July 2006. I am sorry that we have given you cause to complain in relation to the charges incurred on you Abbey Current Account.

I have carefully consider the points you have raised, namely that you feel the charges are contrary to the Unfair Terms in Consumer Regulations 1999. The fact remains however that charges in question were promted by payment requests against insufficent funds. As such, they are valid and in line with our Terms and Conditions. Furthermore, having reviewed the history of your account, I can see this is not the first time you have incurred charges.

I note you say that you are unhappy with the charges you have incurred over the past two years. If you felt at any time the charges were unfair or incorrect, then the matter should have been raised at the time.

We do not feel that Abbey's charges are unfair under these regulations. When you opened the acoount with Abbey, you were provided with Terms and Conditions that detailed the charges taht become applicable should you breach the terms of the account. Abbey is upfront and transparent about all its banking charges as set out in the tariff of charges.

The Office of Fair Trading accounment was in relation to credit cards default charges and not overdraft default charges or to other products, such as bank accounts. This means our tariff of charges continues to apply.

Abbey's current account is good value and our charges compare fairly with other banks. For most people, banking is free and they do not incur charges.

However, as a one off gesture of goodwill, I would like to offer to reverse charges which are currently pending on your account totalling £220, in full and final settlement of your complaint. Please confirm your acceptance by signing and returning the enclosed form in the prepaid envelope provided within 3 eeks. If Ido not hear from you in this time, I will have to assume you are not accepting the offer and it will be withdrawn.

If the complaint escalates unto a claim in the county court, we will review each case individually, and if we feel that our relationship with our customer has broken down completely, we may decide to give notice to close the account under the T&C's.

I accept that you did not set out to incurr charges. Ultimately however, it is your responsibility to moniter your account and ensure there are sufficent funds in your account at all times, even in exceptional circumstances. Any future charges will therefore have to stand.

This is my final resolution letter. However if you would like to discuss this letter or have any new points you belive should be taken into consideration, and which may make a difference to the outcome of the investigation, please contact me within 14 days of the date of this letter on the above number. If I do not hear form you by then, and you have not askedus to extend that deadline for any reason, I will file my papaers accordingly.

Should you remain dissatisfied with the outcome of our investigation, I would like to remind you that can refer your complaint to the financial ombudsman service. I enclose a booklet explaining how to take your complaint to the fos and should you wish to do so, there is a time limit of six months from the date of this letter.

Yours sincerly,

Simon Stokes

Customer Resolution Manager

Complaints.

 

Enclose is a prepaid envelope and a letter saying:

I acknowledge receipt of your offer to reverse pending charges totalling £220 on my Abbey Current Account and accept in full and final settlement of my compliant.

 

 

 

Obviously I am not accepting £220 on a claim of nearly £2000!!!

What's the next step?

Anyone else had this?

I haven't submitted my claim yet, mainly because I can only afford to submit one claim per month really and I have two claims at the same time.

One for the Abbey for £1791 and one for the Halifax for £1790 + removal of default. Which do I claim first?

Any ideas?

That was the same letter as the one I got today, but I filed the Moneyclaim form in on Wednesday :)

 

Not sure which one you should do first, Abbey are notorious for dragging their heels but I am not sure if the Halifax are any quicker.

I'm assuming that all this money to pay out gets refunded when I win my case?

Cos so far its £10 DPA, £150 court costs approx, £100 Allocation Fee, someone has mentioned £65 for a warrant of execution....... I don't have this money lying around because the bank had already took it all!!!

been there - i'm so sorry it's horrible - have you got another account open yet? Any chance of a temporary overdraft with them I know I can't cos been refused but you might be able to. I also got a Capital 1 Card - only get £200 credit but i use it in emergencies and then pay it off to avoid horrendous charges. Doesn't help today tho I know.

The Shabbey sent me a letter on the 26th July as posted above saying that as a gesture of good will etc etc they will refund pending charges on my account if I replied within 3 weeks. That takes us up to 17th August. I replied 11 August saying thanks I'll take the £220 back as part settlement etc etc. And now they have took the £220 out!!! One other thing is that they are charging me for an unpaid standing order that was CANCELLED 3 months ago!!!

 

I need this £220 otherwise I have no food or bus fares!!!!!!!!

Thats right, they said we'll reverse pending charges of £220 due out on the 18th August. I accepted as partial settlement and sent it back in their prepaid envelope. And now they have took £220 out of my account yesterday for charges!!!
