Scottish Widows quoted me a transfer value, both verbally

This answer was rated:

.Scottish Widows quoted me a transfer value, both verbally and in writing and upon transfer 50 days sent me £4,300.00 less.
When I challenged this and demanded the £4,300.00,THEY just said it an incorrect value originally provided and was down to"human error".
I held my funds in three(3) different units and find it hard to accept that either a human being or computer could make a mistake of £4,300.00 on multiplying 3 units held by the bid price and then adding them together.
Is this something that should corrected by S.C. in my favour or do I not have any case to persue?
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
This is breach of contract. They made an offer and you accepted it.
You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: or by completing form N1 and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation for trial.
