    Hi all. If you've had a refund we need your help

    Bank Charges is often in the news and we are frequently asked if we have any MoneySavers that are willing to tell their stories to the press.

    If you'd like to help spread the news and encourage others, please e-mail (sorry but we can't answer questions at this email address) with as much of the following info as you can:

    * how much was your claim for
    * how much did you get back
    * who is your bank
    * a daytime phone number - we often need to reach people at very short notice
    * whether you are happy to appear in the papers,tv or both
    * where you live

    I sent the bank charges reclaim letter with interest on Saturday to Santander for my current account. It was for over 2k of charges I did the paragraph explaining the hardship - very painful (lots of death and biz going downhill). Today someone from the bank kept trying to call me then left a message to call back. I am terrified/feel sick.Now what. Should I speak? Will the lady be angry and reject it if I don't. Feeling really sick.This refund would mean the world.

    It's probably just a courtesy call to check your details or perhaps a Q they have before they can reply. Nothing to worry about.
    Please be polite to OPs and remember this is a site for Claimants and Appellants to seek redress against their bank, ex-boss or retailer. If they wanted morality or the view of the IoD or Bank they'd ask them.

    Lloyds Full Refund ! Over 3k!

    I read an article about account fees and then used the Resolver application on this website. I've been paying account fees for more than 20 years having been told originally that I was more likely to get loans, credit and better interest etc and over the years the accounts just kept on being upgraded, to a point that I was paying 25 a month for insurance, car breakdown and all sorts of stuff I don't use or need.

    It took 30 minutes to fill in my form, 1 phone call to discuss with Lloyds and 3 days after filling in the form I have 3864.54 credited back into my account (fees refunded with interest).

    Amazing, thank you so much!

    I encourage anyone with a history of paying fees out of habit to do this.
