    ***** Want to tell your story in a newspaper/on TV? *****

    Hi all. 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:

    * what stage of reclaiming are you at - had money back /on hold / not yet claimed
    * how much is/was your claim for
    * who is/was 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

    Further Links: Many Thanks. We really appreciate anyone that can help us with this.
