I recently changed Banks, using the 'Switch Guarantee' service whereby all Direct Debits are automatically transferred from the old to the new Bank. This was done seamlessly, and a Direct Debit for my Plusnet account was in place on the day of the switch. Yet, presumably having being notified of the change of Bank, Plusnet appear to have set up another duplicate Direct Debit - and to add insult to injury, have charged this month's payment to my Debit Card, incurring an extra £1-50 charge!
I think this is extremely unreasonable, as the 'Switch Guarantee' is supposed to mean that the customer incurs no financial penalty from changing Banks. In the circumstances, I would appreciate a refund of the £1-50 card payment surcharge from Plusnet.
Fixed! Go to the fix.
I am really sorry to hear this.
It looks like your direct debit instruction is still being processed by your bank or building society.
As a gesture of goodwill I have now issued you with a refund of the non direct debit surcharge now which you should see back on your card this week. Once again, please accept my apologies for this.
