    Default Who has been charged by their banks???

    Whos had £30 charges applied to their account because of being overdrawn or not enough money in their accounts when DD's or cheques have been due?

    I'm following a procedure at the moment to try to reclaim the 8 charges against my account since 2000 at a cost of £264. Going by what I've been reading Banks settle most of the time rather than go to court and have it ruled as a penalty notice which is illegal!.

    Most of the cases submitted have been settled before court.

    Anyways I'll post up how i get on.

    This is one to think about

    My bank charged me. (Natwest)

    I complained to them and explained that they had better refund the charges or they would loose me as a customer. I had been loyal to them for 17 years, but had no problem with changing banks. They backed down and credited my account. (£56). bargain...

    Ask them for the address for the Banking Watchdog, they charge them about £60 per letter/contact, they will soon back down.

    Years ago when i had no money i was always over drawn, as long as you contact your bank(natwest was mine)they could always allow unaranged borrowing without charges. Since then a few times i have gone over the limit for ONE day and been charged for it, but i get straight on the phone and Natwest has ALWAYS refunded the charge back into my account.

    I'm a member of Which? and they've got a campaign going against these charges. Here's a PDF from a members only section of the website showing what you can do with bank charges - and a PDF about credit card charges. Let me know if you want the (Word) templates and I can e-mail them to you.

    Don't worry about not having previous years statements. You can get copies from the bank/credit card company of course - but they'll charge you each one! You'll see there's a bit in the first PDF where you can get a printout of charges for no more than £10 for the past six years - due to the Data Protection Act.
