    Hi Wales
    It isn't that unusual now a days.
    Companies regularly review their own performance and if they find they have not provided what they themselves consider adequate service they will make ex gratia refunds of charges. (they need to act before the regulators pick up on it!

    If it is to do with your joint account ask them where your 25 has gone. Sauce for the goose and all that...
