my barclaycard been locked for over a year, hitting 2 years now, i had 3 letters. i just wrote to them saying they owe me 400, then they said they will give me just over 200the reason i dont get the cash is cos my account is locked. they just take it off the bill i owe them.

yupthink why they going to close your account if u have money being put into the account you are making them money, them paying you the money THEY OWE YOU back. THEN cutting off your account is just shooting themselves in the foot.cos they loose the money they give u backthey then loose the money ur putting in the bank. after they pay u back the charges they STILL charge u again anyways, just claim again.

abbey national keep chargin me for overdrafts even tho i dnt used the account..wa gwarn?
im sorry to sound all capre deum on you but bruvwhen you have an account that is being charged that you dont use (as you so bluntly put it minus the WA GWARN) it becomes vividly evident you dont know what you actually do with money when you get it and probably are one of them people that have their bank statments scattered all over the place as well as receive stange checks in ya account to the amounts of 10 grand up that you would know NOTHING ABOUT. (dont worry we at the halifax and abbey national understand the metropolitan police and the retail fraud department understand even better)thats not the banks fault is it?and guess what if you actually CALLED the bank you MAY just find out why ya being charged but if its too much effort dont worry im sure the charge compensates for the effort you would make to do so. biggrin.gif:D:D:D

If anyone is thinking fo writing to your bank to claim the charges now, u might aswell wait a year or so cause they are doing a test case to see if the banks can really charge u that amount going over drawnat the moment something like 8 banks are going to court about the case which aint due to start end of this yr/nxt yrin the meantime the OFT have put all enquries on hold till the case is over so basically all them banks dont have to do sh*t until its overglad I did this months earlier

theres a consumer rights site streets posted. them guys are in the know.. dont try and fight a bank on your own, when you can barely get proper info from google. it even has whistle blowers from within the banks, lawyers too and all that. ask him, cos a bank cant take a yr to investigate..its them taking u for lurchie..they know u dont know ur rights etc, nor can they just shut your account like that

Better to send it and let them put it on hold, than for them to later decide they're not accepting any more letters or some sh*t. No harm in sending it asap.

a couple of you have been mugged off. they will always send you a cheque if you ask for it.Abbey National and Capital One tried this "we'll take it off the total amount" with me. All you do is write back to them saying "because my account has been closed i want a cheque".Also, it's still worth taking your banks to court. only the OFT and FSA have said they will halt all cases until the test case is finished. the courts have final say and depending on how much your claiming for and how your wording your claim, some courts MIGHT still process your claim.

My bank (Natwest) are not among the banks going to court with the OFT about it... Does that mean they're not halting proceedings? I get the feeling it means that if they want to give me the money when I complain they will but I won't get backing from the FSA??
