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


Thank you for that Jenny, I'll take a look at the link now and I'll let you know how I get on x


Hmm, it says to phone them to request statements but I don't really want to phone them. Can you do it in writing?

I've never read this thread properly before, but it's amazing!! I'm definitely getting my bank statements tonight and writing to my bank. Maybe I'll get some money back in time for my holiday!!!

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


Yes it is. When I worked in the bank the only way to get statments were to either do it on line or in writting. That way the bank was sure it was infact you that wanted them.
Some banks charge for them others dont.

Fran, I've just been reading on that Comsumer Action Group website that with my bank (First Direct / HBSC) if you ring up they say that you have to pay 10 per statement, but if you write to them you seem to get them for free!! So a letter may be the way to go.

I've just printed off all the statements I can get online, which go back to 2004 and at first glance I can see at least a couple of hundred pounds in charges.

I hope there isn't a minimum that you can claim for? I can't see anywhere that it says so.

A couple of hundred quid to me is worth the claim!!!!

Good luck to you too Fran.
