Over in the UK the media has been full of people claiming back the charges levied on them by their banks. So I thought seeing I have a spare hour (for a change) I’d give it ago, So I sat down with my on-line account and a spread sheet obtained from http://www.penaltycharges.co.uk.
O.K. so luckily for me I’m with HSBC who shows your last 6 years of statements on-line. So I go through them one at a time and inserting the date, Description in the statement and the amount in to the spread sheet. I get to 18 months worth and I have already hit 2k GBP so I’m now thinking I have to crack this, So I’ve now completed this and the total comes to 5,180.50 GBP
So I’ve then got the letter from the site, entered my details in and have now posted it Recorded Delivery to my bank, So in 14 days either I get a response saying no sod off take us to court or here’s the cash
So here’s hoping fingers crossed
OK I know my money mangement is crap and thus the reason so high
