Question Random money deposited in my current account

It's only 2.58 before we get excited! But it's down as a "Bank Credit" yesterday with a random reference instead of a name it says BTBTRR then ten digits

I have no idea what on earth this is, certainly not a refund or anything I was expecting. Any ideas?

Thanks! :confused:

Do you use BT for your phone? Are you on a direct debit arrangement with them? It might be that they gave you some money back (although a peculiarly small amount)

You know what, that's exactly what it is PasturesNew! I moved my line rental to Sky a couple of months ago and had a residual credit on my account with BT. What a plonker I am! )

Was thinking it might be a refund of VAT from BT.
British gas have been doing this to me all year since VAT went down to 15%.

I just had a sum of over 80 put in from BT... they said it would be sent by cheque... hopefully they still might!

Fingers crossed! Cheers for the info guys!

Just had 8.53 that I'd forgotten they owed me (they wrote to me last week, haha - baby brain!) - thanks MSE! Nothing wrong with reviving past threads if the issue is ongoing.
