The Financial Ombudsman is dealing with a growing number of packaged bank account charges reclaims. Never has there been a clearer sign that the banks are heading for more trouble and another misselling scandal with Account Package Charges. They have even made a little form for us to complete which means they are expecting a large volume of such claims and this has only been since the beginning of 2014.
In fact the statistics for claims to obtain refunds of account package refunds are extremely encouraging with the ombudsman suggesting about 80% are successful, of course we have a to argue a bit but in order to obtain our clients refunds on average of up to £2000 a bit of arguing is not a problem.
The account package misselling started to come to light in 2012 when the regulator took an interest in the banks selling techniques of accounts of this type. It’s easy to know if you had a fee paying account, it is if you had a charge of £10 to £30 on your account, if you did this is a fee paying account and we can look at reclaiming the fees you have paid back since the inception of the account as well as interest and some compensatory interest.
Interest in reclaiming these fees largely due to limited publicity has grown from a few thousand claims last year to over this figure in the first three months of this year. About 15 million people have been affected so a sizeable amount of money is due to be refunded and so if you haven’t looked at claiming let us know today and we can get your money back for you.
Facility Review Ltd will work hard to uncover and recover any money you may be owed. We will attempt to go back further than most other claims companies, helping our clients to claim back up to 20 years worth of unfair bank charges. Furthermore you will not need to provide any original paperwork or documents to reclaim your bank charges.
