jofeb04 Thu 28-Jun-07 11:24:39

Going to claim for my account now as well!!!

Lolly68 Thu 28-Jun-07 11:42:56

Waiting to hear from Natwest. They have until 23 July to respond.

TequilaMockinBird Thu 28-Jun-07 11:44:57

Oh well done!

I too am waiting to hear from Natwest, sent them a list detailing all charges and giving them 14 days to respond - which they did by letter saying they were assessing my claim and would write to me within 6-7 weeks

Keeping everything crossed though!

Lolly68 Thu 28-Jun-07 12:10:52

TM - I received exactly the same letter!

TequilaMockinBird Thu 28-Jun-07 12:18:43

Lolly, LOL!

I'm hoping we won't have to wait that long as judging by some of the threads on this subject, people have had responses a lot quicker!

jofeb04 Thu 28-Jun-07 12:54:05

Mine took just over 8weeks, so hang in

nosy question jofeb04 but did you issue court proceedings or did they cough just after your letter?

just over 2000 Cod

They just give it to me, plus they still havent't taken away the 60 pounds that they give in error!

No need to even threaten them with court tbh. Their letter was pritty fun to read though

How did you incur £2000 in bank charges???

TequilaMockinBird Sat 30-Jun-07 19:31:18

My charges total £2600!! Unfortunatley, due to me and XP splitting up, my change of job etc... i incurred a lot a couple of years ago - hopefully i'm about to get them all back though!

jofeb04 Sat 30-Jun-07 20:20:18

UC, quite easily!!

jofeb04 Sat 30-Jun-07 20:21:06

Forgot to say, that wasn't thefull amount, but didn't want to risk loosing anything!

boo70 Sun 01-Jul-07 15:50:16

Hi i am trying to claim back my bank charges and have been knocked back after every letter. The next stage is taking them to court!!! Any advice please, it seems a bit scary!!

Chipstick Sun 01-Jul-07 20:04:45

The banks are averaging 85% refund of any claimed amount.

HSBC are paying money out like theres no tomorrow.

Lolly68 Thu 05-Jul-07 11:24:38

Tequila - hang in there with Natwest. I have just phoned them to check on my claim and an offer letter has gone out to me offering the full amount back £7.5K!!! The letter can take up to 2 weeks to get to me though but I'm well pleased.
