Did you receive a response to your complaint?

If you have received a response to the complaint and this does not resolve your concerns, ask to appeal the decision and speak to a senior member of the team.

Explain why you do not believe the response to the complaint was adequate, and confirm what you are seeking whether this is a partial/full refund.

If you are seeking a refund, explain why the refund is necessary, for example if the service was not what was promised or the service was inadequate.

if you do not receive an adequate response to the appeal letter, usually 14-21 days then I would escalate the matter, as the financial ombudsman cannot assist further you could try using:
