    A man who was fed up with paying massive bank charges decided to give one of the high street giants a taste of its own medicine.

    When Royal Bank of Scotland refused to refund £3,400 charges that Declan Purcell believed he was owed, he sent in the bailiffs.

    Stunned customers at his branch of RBS watched as debt collectors seized four computers, two fax machines and a till filled with cash

  4. The bank reckoned THEY hadn't paid up the court bills (or even bothered to turn up ot said court appearences) due to some one overlooking the situation. ie... couldn't be bothered, or forgot.

    Wonder how much they would charge if some one "overlooked" a payment to themselves?

    Good on him. Got 'em by the ball bag.
     
  5. you can even claim back your bank charges if you goto www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk they have all the forms there to start proceedings i am about to give royal bank of scotland the good news i reckon they owe me thousands in charges. Cant wait then barclays are gonna get it as well
    If they charge you and you quote that you think its an unfair charge they see their own arse and give it back pronto.
    Look on the sight loads of cracking info there
     
  6. This is the second time He's done this - You would have thought the bank would have learned after the first time.

    Or did I read of the same incident on a similar thread here?
