    Default Free Money (Really)

    I have done the letter writing bit to my bank over my bank charges over the last 6 years. Total I tried to claim was £1669 (lots of overdraft when getting divorced!).
    Sent them the second letter Monday telling them I wanted the fees back and was prepared to go to court etc, etc.
    Received a letter from them yesterday stating that they would win if it went to court but they are willing to credit my account with £1369!!!

    Woooooooohoooooooo. £1369 for the price of 2 first class stamps.

    I am chuffed

    Several of my friends have done it, everyone of them got money back from their banks.
    If you have incurred ANY bank charges in the last 6 years, go after them.

    I have been quite sensible and prob had about £5 over the last 6 years

    Fortunately not married / no kids lol

    I have a friend who often gets £125 charges per month though so will pass this on to her!

    Nice one TT, it pay,s to have a moan sometimes, I was charged £25 for late payment on a credit card, it was my fault entirely, I sent the payment to one of my other cards by mistake, but phoned them up and they credited me the money back, I wonder how mant people would have done nothing and let them take the £25, it was worth the phone call.
