    Bank admit I was misold but money ever taken for fees

    Bank admit I was misold but money ever taken for fees 13th Mar 17 at 6:28 PM
    Hello

    I submitted a claim for a misold bank account.

    Lloyds agree the bank misold the account to me and upheld my complaint. However for whatever reason the bank never took association charges for the miss sold account. I held this account since 2001 unbeknowns to me.

    Anyhow the bank are saying as they never charged me for the misold bank account I am not due anything...(which technically is correct) however I feel like I was hoodwinked and the account changed without my full knowledge.

    Do you think I should persue with the fca for some kind of goodwill payment?

    Ask Lloyds for the £20 you're likely to get if you refer to the FOS.

    The FCA don't handle complaints.

    Compensation claim
    • #3
    • 13th Mar 17, 7:22 PM
    When I was a kid, say, 7 or 8 years old, my mum used to give me two bob (10p for you youngsters) pocket money. All good so far but here's the rub: she MADE me save a tanner(2.5p) of it in my money box. Now I had no choice in this matter, this savings account was forced upon me. When I needed something, like some marbles or a dead cat, she would occasionally allow me to withdraw some cash from the money box. Of course, most of these things either broke or got lost. Should she have foreseen this and offered advice on the matter?
    Does anyone think I have a case for compensation? She gets a fairly good pension and she hardly spends any of it anyway.
    I came into this world with nothing and I've got most of it left.

    Very good. Compensation for being "missold" a free bank account. Next we'll have someone wanting to sue Facebook because they signed up and then realised they didn't have any friends.

    Don't know what 'association charges' are but if you have never paid them how can you claim them back?
    I cannot believe that your account was changed to a fee paying account without your 'full' knowledge.
    What do you mean by this exactly? That the account was changed with your partial knowledge?

    Always best to check you've paid for something before trying to claim it back saying you were missold. Dur.

    You can take it to the FOS but I don't see what your claim is for, you were missold something yet, but you were never charged for it....

    This is similar to yesterdays thread where someone was going to claim PPI misspelling on an account she never had!
    I see the "authorities" have pulled the thread. It will only damage MSE if the fraudsters take over the farm.

    Whether you knew you had it or not is irrelevant. The bank didn't charge you for it, so you haven't suffered any detriment by having it, so there's nothing to compensate you for.

    What is the point of this thread,

    The title is a contradiction enough, Clearly the OP isn't playing with a full deck.
