  • Santander 566 Pound charges dating back to 2011 help!!!

    I am trying to sort my credit rating out so went online to view my credit file to find,
    my old Santander current account I have defaulted on since 2011.

    I was in the military so moved around a lot and was oversea, had my bank letters go to my grandmothers. I stopped using the account when I left the army and my grandmother moved house, I did not cancel one direct debit ( I think it may have been life insurance while I was in the army ) and since then I had fees put my account each month. ( found out as I phoned them today to get it sorted)

    so the 566 I owe them are just fees for failed direct debits.

    on the phone the guy basically said wait until November and it should be wiped of as this will be 6 years.

    is this true,

    every month it show I have defaulted with Santander from 2011 every month.

    I know it is my responsibility to manage accounts but I was young and did not think about closing the account thought I may want to use it one day.

        I contacted Santander direct,
        And they said they have handed it to collections agency a few times but keeps coming back to them.
