      I suggest that we assail the institutions with requests.

      The cost of providing and managing effective systems to enable the queries is high. With everyone demanding SARs it would hit their pockets, and perhaps drop them in very hot water of non-compliance.

        This also applies to CIFAS, N Hunter (SAR’s) & your (currently £2) statutory credit reports from the “big 3” - Experian, Equifax & Call Credit.

        A s.78 request is not a SAR and so is excluded as it has its own regs, so you still pay £1 to request a cca.

          I was thinking similar, as in I’m going to send in SAR requests to everyone who has ever caused me grief in the financial sector; dca’s / banks / etc.

          Like you say, if thousands all do it (which we will, naturally), then they’ll be slightly busy to say the least.

          After all who doesn’t want to see what these guys hold about us?

            I wonder whether they currently have an intern looking at what is produced. The Data Manager should ensure all present and correct or be fined. But if it is examined, as opposed to requested and despatched automatically from a printing service just think of the effect on unemployment.
