dont need it… didnt realise i had it….
missold in one
there should be somewhere on the bank/BS homepage about mis-selling of PPI. follow their instructions and if you believe you’ve been mis-sold a PPI policy, submit a claim directly to the bank/BS. Do not go through any of these fly by night claims cowboys; I heard somewhere that 80% of the “claims” they submit have more holes than a leaky colanderPosted 5 years ago
My wife claimed herself, because she only ever had 1 CC. She got 2.2k back.
I have had loads over the years, and have no record of any of them – or in most cases even remember who they were with…I just know I have always been in borrowing money!
I’m going to use a company to do it…I wouldn’t know where to start.Posted 5 years ago
Everything you need to know is here :
Basically get a free credit report from experian etc (join up and cancel within 30 days)
Then call up / send letter to bank asking for details
If they don’t provide them send a SAR letter and £10 (basically a letter asking them to give you every single piece of info they hold (data protection laws etc). The £10 covers costs.
Then once you have this, use the info to fill in the standard template You find here :
Then wait …..
This is all the claims basta&5s do anyway and take a big cut. I have absolutely zero legal / financial background and have successfully claimed £870 from barclaycard, £280 from virgin and just had claim approved for £987 from egg! Do it!!!! If you need any help PM me 🙂
Good luckPosted 5 years ago
Yeah do it! You can try this free credit report site first :
But experian and equifax go deeper. They will have details of closed loans / credit agreements. Remember even if the original bank has been sold / dissolved / destroyed etc then you can still claim. For example egg ppi credit card stuff being handled by barclaycard and loans by Canada square ….all the info is on google. Takes a bit of time but it’s really not that hard to do! I found it quite fun actually 🙂Posted 5 years ago
Remember the time limit thing is bollocks …it is easier to claim for loans that have ended in last 6 years but not impossible for loans 6,7,8, 10 years +! I know of someone who claimed for a loan ending in 2001. The 6 month thing relates to an active loan! You could for example have taken a loan out in 1995…so long as it was still active (ie being paid back) in 2006 you will have a claim.Posted 5 years ago

And did you know that for each of those claims the financial institution paid £1000 to the FSA… 🙄Posted 5 years ago
