Hi Rach, yes you can claim upto 6 years back regardless if you still have the account or not, if you have only had your account for 3 years you can still get your charges back, I will email you later when I get home.

Yes that is a good site and it takes you to the consumer action group which is the group that have helped me reclaim the charges.

I have had an offer letter from Barclays after sending two letters, they have offered £300 out of a £647 claim

Re: Excessive bank charges - anybody going to complain to their bank?


Well a member of my family approached Natwest for refund of £700 of charges, firstly they refused, but after issuing court proceedings (on Saturday) Natwest have now paid , I am so glad for them as they have children and money can be very tight

Re: Excessive bank charges - anybody going to complain to their bank?


The more I think about it Mags, the more I get angry that these charges mainly penalise the people who can least afford it... my family members who have had the charges refunded, had their home repossessed a few years back (when these charges were being applied and other ones!!) they had a young baby as well.

Re: Excessive bank charges - anybody going to complain to their bank?


Totally agree Mags, they are due another £3,000 odd from Natwest on another account, which I am determined to help them get back. Something really has to change with the way we pay for banking.
