    I am being charged £15 for an unpaid debit fee which was caused by an unfortunate set of circumstances in which I attempted to pay twice into an account because my money was unbeknown to me debited from my account but not actually transferred to my ISA.

    On the 18/02/2011 I requested that £450 be paid into my Alliance and Leister ISA, something I’ve done many times before with no problems, this money had still not materialised by the 28/02/2011and as I did not have internet access to my Nationwide account at the time did not think the money would have been debited, and so I redid the transaction with £531.33 which arrived in my account 01/03/2011, but then was removed on 3/02/2011. On investigating this I discovered that the initial £450 was debited from my account but had not arrived in my Alliance and Leister ISA. Therefore when I had attempted to move the money again it had put me over my balance. I am currently trying to work out what happened to the initial £450 I transferred, which I am assured by Nationwide was transferred to my Alliance and Leister account, something I am trying to follow up with their branch.

    Do I have any right to claim the £15 pound back?

    How did you know that the money had not arrived in your ISA but not know that it had left your current account? If you made the transfer over the phone or in-branch and found out that way, for example, it would seem reasonable for them to tell you that you don't have enough money in your current account to actually make the transfer. On the other hand if you found that the money had not reached your ISA, did not ask about the balance of your other account and later made the transfer I think they can reasonably argue that you did not act prudently.

    You need to give more information to get a more reasoned reply.

    You probably don't have a right to get it back but if you apologise, say you'll make sure it doesn't happen again and ask them to refund it as a good will gesture (I'm assuming this is the first time you've gotten a fee like this?) then they almost certainly will.

    I've done it with Nationwide before and they did it with no fuss at all.
