Who sold PPI?
Did your bank or lender sell PPI?
So, who sold PPI? The good news, or bad news, whichever way you look at it, is that most banks and lenders sold Payment Protection Insurance, commonly referred to as PPI.
We have listed some of the main culprits at the bottom of this page but don’t worry if your lender doesn’t appear, it is still highly likely that they sold PPI.
Don’t be fooled if your bank or lender has a different name for the insurance, it is generally the same thing.
Who was mis-sold PPI?
If you took out mortgages, loans, hire purchase agreements, car finance, credit cards and store cards between the early 1980s until as recently as 2013 then you could be one of the millions who have been mis-sold PPI.
The FCA estimates that as many as 64 MILLION policies have been sold, and the Financial Ombudsman Service suggests the total value of these PPI policies is worth £50 billion.
How was PPI mis-sold?
PPI policies were often sold by lenders as part of the deal when you took out credit with them.
These policies were often sold to customers who did not need, want or ask for them.
Indeed, many customers may not even know that they have been sold a PPI policy with their credit agreement.
The vast majority of firms selling PPI did not…
- Make it clear that the PPI was optional.
- Offer cancellation refunds when PPI was stopped.
- Give clear information about the PPI product and what it would cost.
- Tell their customers what they were and were not covered for.
