I'll do it for £25%ourkid said:A friend of ours is using a company that does all the chasing/paperwork on his behalf,but are charging 25 percent of the compensation.Anyone know of better deals out there,with a good record of winning cases?
That'll buy plenty of shiny bits for your bug dudeSPANGLE said:sending off letter #2 today just under 2k with interest so I haven't been quite as bad as I thought i'd been. May be I should try for the full 11 years of the bank account
oh really ?cookiemonster said:And the Lloyds thing, that case if slightly different and the banks are using it to scare people off claiming - so dont be put off.
sorry, but that is utter nonsense89 said:Before you get bamboozled.
The two cases were won due to the paperwork being crap on behalf of the claimant. It wasnt a case of the banks winning by proving it wrong, just sloppy crap paperwork not filled in correctly.
I'm really sorry about this, but the myth is that it was poor paperwork etc89 said:Dont believe the stories of Banks winning, its not as clear cut as they say. Its due in two circumstances to poor applicant documents not filled in correctly. Ignore the myths!
this is really not the whole picturejanski said:Right, so 2 cases of not winning....banks etc 2 - the people 100,000+....compared to the 100's of thousands that have.....I like thems odds!!!
Yes there were two cases. One this week with Lloyds TSB and another last week. I have read them, there was also Abbey and another bank laying it on thick with regards to the cases that were won and these banks adding this in the letters to customers to put them off. It is a fact that two cases that banks won or the judge put it in their favour turned out to be bad paperwork.CheekyMonkey said:sorry, but that is utter nonsense
have you actually read the decision in the Birmingham case (I don't know what the 2 are - I only know of that one, what's the other ?)
it was fully argued, well presented, and the barrister who is claiming aggravated damages in the other case which has been adjourned put in written submissions
the judgment is very well written and personally I can't see any holes in it
pretending that it was down to sloppy paperwork is just plain wrong, sorry
I can't comment on the other case as I don't know what you are referring to

Have you actually read it ?
You need to wait another 3 - 4 weeks. I done this with HSBC, after the "were looking into your case". I then got a settlement letter, which wasn't too far off my claim.LadyV said:I have sent my 2nd letter and got a response about 3 weeks ago saying that they were investigating and would be in touch. Not sure how long I should leave it before sending the 3rd letter? Has anyone had their charges refunded from Natwest?
