here is a quote from money saving expert
"We need to know all the fines you’ve been charged by each bank or credit card, including charges from now closed accounts, over the last six years (the time period is limited by law). Now do note we’re only talking penalty charges/fines, not normal account fees.

here's a link on the steps

Thats some refund on charges - is this just by going overdrawn by a few quid and then getting charged for receiving a letter every few days to get your account back in the black. I think it must be something more to do with compound interest or the like.
