Easy money!

I called my Mortgage provider earlier today and as the call was closing I remembered seeing this recently.

Have you switched mortgage or paid it in full in the last few years? If so, it’s likely you were overcharged by your old lender, possibly by £100s, and now officially can get this money back. This step-by-step guide will show you how to reclaim your cash in minutes.

I said to the Customer Service lady, “It’s on that Martin Lewis website that you might have overcharged me when I payed back my previous mortgage.” She replied, “Oh, he’s the bane of my life that bloke! I’ll have a look and see what I can find.” I wasn’t hopeful, it was about 5 years ago and I didn’t have of my old account details. Her comment about Martin Lewis made me think, while I like his stuff on a personal level, when I’m at work and our customers quote him, I have a similar reaction to this lady.

After a few more questions I was informed that I had been overcharged and was due a refund of £35. It’s not a fortune but it’s not bad for a few minutes talking on the phone.

Could you get some cash back?

    Gah, that damn Martin Lewis made my life hell the other day! He was on GMTV telling Barclaycard customers to phone customer services and demand we switch them to some card that gives them 5% cashback!!

    We don’t even have such a card!!

    Well done on your £35 though! 🙂
