I have had a few loans and credit cards over the years and I'm fairly sure I had PPI on some. However I can't remember which companies. I was thinking of using one of the online PPI checkers to see which companies I had PPI with and then pursue a claim myself. But I'm worried that once they have my personal details they are never going to leave me alone. Has anyone got any experience of using one of these companies and who would you recommend?
Honestly do it yourself, it's so easy. Get the template letter from Martin Lewis website and send it off to all the companies you've had a loan, mortgage or credit card with. Assume you've had it on them all. Part of the PPI issue was in some cases it was added without telling customers. I didn't think I'd ever had it, and sent a speculative letter to my bank and they confirmed I had! I got 3k back and husband 5k. Do it!
I'm using investor compensation. I tried with mse template and bank said they had no record of loans etc.I've had £2000 back so far taking off what I paid the company. Straight into my account. When a retrieval question is issued to the bank they have to disclose any loan, card etc they've had with you. If you've got a little evidence it's helpful..account number etc. For store cards you don't need anything.
I had so many credit cards and store cards, I've no idea which banks many were with. Or if they had PPI. I, instinctively, feel I'd have said no to any add-ons but who knows? Has anyone used the Resolver tool for all banks in a speculative capacity?
