Thanks to Martins site i put in a claim for £515 after the second letter the CC company upped the offer from £95 to £450 as they were sorry it left me disappointed.

    Why are you claiming this money back?
    Has the bank conned you or taken money from you without your consent?
    Since when has the world of computer software design been about what people want? This is a simple question of evolution. The day is quickly coming when every knee will bow down to a silicon fist, and you will all beg your binary gods for mercy.

    going on his term 'after the second letter' it has got to mean a reclaim of charges paid, i.e. reclaim your charges. This is where the term 'letter 1', 'letter 2' & 'final letter' come into play.......

    Otherwise it'd be a full & final settlement on defaulted debt but this wouldn't warrant the term '2nd letter' so unlikely......

    Unless the OP is just referring to a second letter that he wrote and not specifically 'letter 2'....

    :confused:

    If it was full & final settlement on a debt why would it be upped from £95.00 to £450.00 because he wasn't happy?!

    Why are the bank offerring a payment at all? Have they conned him or charged him unfairly or are they just being nice??

    That's how I read it..... was using it as an example but the letter doesn't fit. Letter 2 is specific to reclaiming charges

    Thanks to Martins site i put in a claim for £515 after the second letter the CC company upped the offer from £95 to £450 as they were sorry it left me disappointed.

    This to me means that he claimed £515 of charges, they refused saying we'll pay you £95 and he wrote 'letter 2' and then they offered £450 in return.

    If it was a write off, then the same applies in that he wouldn't ask them to increase the F&F amount from £95 to £450 would he? lol
