|link{http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/reclaim/bank-charges\Try this}. It has the template letters on it.

Bugger. Try this.

TheMuppetMuggle Fri 13-Jul-07 19:59:32

Thanks Frogs

Am really bad at this type of thing

frogs Fri 13-Jul-07 20:08:18

So am I. Just grit your teeth and go for it. The template letters make it so much easier.

Great, will look at that - Lloyds just charged £30 for being 47p over my overdraft limit!!

TheMuppetMuggle Sun 15-Jul-07 09:13:02

looney def do, is outrageous the amount they charge.

looneytune Sun 15-Jul-07 09:28:25

Don't worry, I plan to! Abbey charged me LOADS a couple of years ago and I hate them as a bank for many reasons (incl. they messed up on my account and made it so i couldn't get money out on holiday!!!), I'm just about to close my account but will start by asking for all the info I need to try and claim back.

I'm annoyed with Lloyds as they have been pretty good but £30 for being 47 PENCE overdrawn is crazy!!

TheMuppetMuggle Sun 15-Jul-07 09:30:22

I'm doing the same with Natwest, have already set up another bank account elsewhere.
I hate natwest they are a crap bank.

looneytune Sun 15-Jul-07 09:43:09

Good luck with it. I've just done the letter requesting statements so will wait and see.

TheMuppetMuggle Sun 15-Jul-07 09:47:05

you to mine will be going first class tomorrow. Are you sending to your head office or your local branch??

looneytune Sun 15-Jul-07 09:58:24

Mine going first class too! We can update this thread as and when we hear back I've actually addressed mine to the data protection address for Abbey as I thought that's where we were supposed to? I may have misread so correct me if I'm wrong. I was looking at the link nearest to the top of this thread

TheMuppetMuggle Sun 15-Jul-07 10:02:22
