Payment Protection Insurance Mis-selling Claims Paid Over £2bn in 2011

22 Feb

 Be aware of the difference between financial product sales and financial advice.

The claims paid in 2011 for Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) mis-selling almost reached £2bn in December 2011 (figures provided by the Financial Services Authority (FSA)).

If you are a victim of this mis-selling, complain and ask for compensation; it is your legal right if you suffered at the hands of this horrendous treatment. Although, please do not take advantage of the system if you are not a victim of this crime. The concern being, there is growing support for the mentality to accuse, sue and/or exaggerate to make a financial gain, no matter that you didn’t suffer the crime. Please utilise your Rights but don’t abuse your Rights.

In this case there is no smoke without fire as the final cost of payments for actual mis-selling is expected to reach possibly over £8bn
