Barclays PBA Compensation Fund Receives £250m
Earlier today we brought you news of the Barclays PPI bill increasing by £600m.
This wasn’t the only big news following the release of Barclays quarterly figures to the city.
The much troubled bank has also announced its first amount of money set aside specifically to compensate customers for the new mis-selling scandal, packaged bank accounts (PBA).
First addition by Barclays
Many banks are trying their utmost to keep a lid on the mis-selling of PBAs, for fear of another scandal in the mould of PPI.
Unfortunately it appears their efforts will be in vain, as momentum grows in this new area of banks cheating their customers.
This first addition to the Barclays PBA compensation fund, takes the overall PBA bill for the banking sector to £538m.
In the grand scale of things this is tiny compared to the almost £30bn set aside for PPI, but this is a relatively new area of claim and it’s only a matter of time before it takes off.
About PBAs & Our Service
There are approximately 10 million PBA’s that remain active today, and with potentially millions more that have been closed.
Packaged Bank Accounts attract a regular monthly fee, generally between £5 – £30, in exchange for various products such as mobile, travel and breakdown insurance, to name a few.
Much like PPI, it appears banks have abused their position to mis-sale these accounts in order to generate obscene profits at the expense of their customers.
