    Tesco to cancel incoming direct debits without permission

    Tesco to cancel incoming direct debits without permission 13th Apr 18 at 9:15 AM
    Tesco savings have written to me to say that on 22 April they will cancel all dds that are incoming into their accounts. They say they pre notified of this change in October but I didn't receive anything. I found this facility useful and I don't believe Tesco have a right to cancel payments set up by their customers. I urge anyone affected to strongly complain by ringing 034 5678 5678. Say you want them to log a complaint.

    I guess this is Tesco trying to close high interest current account "loopholes".

    I think Tesco should concentrate on what they were once good at - selling groceries.

    Yes I know they maybe trying to close loopholes but they have no right to cancel dds without permission. "Very intrigued" what do you mean by late to the party? Is there another forum on this and did you get the notification in October?

    Have you got Fri 13th mixed up with April 1st?

    Anyway I have complained and if other people don't do the same how do we expect to change anything. Tesco have been known to back down in the past. Will just use post office instead for savings

    By giving you two months notice they can do what they want.

    If you've missed the earlier notification, I suspect they'll be able to prove it was sent. In which case the regulator and the FOS take the view you've been told.

    Sorry.

    You would only have an issue if they started cancelling outgoing direct debits to external providers like council tax or gas.

    I have seen so much notification im starting to get very bored of them telling me about it. Along with any notion that Tesco might forget and not implement it.
