I urge you all to look at PPI and any claim you can make.

You don't need one of these so called specialist firms to do it.

I have received an offer of £4221 from M&S in the post this morning.

All it took was a letter asking for my original signed application and then a claim form.

I started the process on 30th October and received my offer today for the cost of some paper and a couple of recorded delivery envelopes.

I am still waiting to hear from a couple of other lenders but what a fantastic start to the weekend.

UPDATE!!! I've written to about 6 firms, most of whom seem to now be Santander, had 5 fuck off letters - and today got one offering us £7k on PPI for our first mortgage which we took out 30 years ago!

YAY!! go for it people, keep going, its so worth it!

Fantastic new, boschy, good for you!

Hi,has anybody sent a claim to the fos for a HSBC loan and they have upheld it?we have just received this letter and wondered if HSBC are likely to send more evidence and disagree with what the fos have said.This has been going on for over 15 months now.

I made a claim with Lloyd's in August 2012 whilst on Mat Leave I didn't expect any money back imagine the suprise I had when I came home from hospital to a letter offering me £12,000!
I'm now waiting on a decision on my £4000 credit card from Lloyd's. Fingers crossed I get this as it'll go towards my kids first holiday

Quick question - does this only apply to loans, ccs and mortgages in the last 6 years or can I claim for every one I've ever had??

Hello can anyone help me out here. My loan was for 2.5k for 1 year.

the PPI was £15 per month for 9 months as i paid off the loan 3 months early.

Can anyone work out for me how much I can expect to receive. I did the claim myself and it was with Lloyds back. Thanks

About £145.40 smile smile

I thought there was a minimum compensation payout as well. Doesn't look like I'll get much

Shakey1500 Sat 29-Mar-14 17:21:40

How much did you think the minimum was? Not heard of that to be honest. Still almost €150 is better than nothing smile smile

matthahn Mon 31-Mar-14 11:12:16

Someone on this thread said a minimum of £200 for inconvenience but maybe that's not right. Yeah you are right better than nothing

matthahn Tue 01-Apr-14 15:22:06

I got £396.48 smile

We've just been offered £5,500 from Halifax, and there are 2 more complaints outstanding. Has come at a good time, didn't even have to complete the questionnaire. It sat around the house for ages (lots going on, never got round to finishing it off), they called me, 10 minute conversation. So easy. Woo Hoo!

I got offered just a little over £2k from Halifax which is great. It was just the letter though. Still waiting for the cheque (which should come within 28 days of the letter).
