Dear Friend,Hello and welcome. Thank you for providing an opportunity to assist you.I am sorry to hear this but this is nothing new. Scores of people are dealt with in this manner by such companies.
Now, coming to your situation in specific, from what I understand all you have given is just the papers / information and at no point of time you have agreed to such 29.5% of fees, verbally or in writing.I would suggest you to just send them a written / certified letter stating that though you approached them with matter related to PPI Claim, at no point you had given your consent to this amount of fee. Tell them in writing in no unclear terms that you will have to seek legal advice if they keep coming after you for such high fees.To prove your honest intentions, offer them to pay fees which YOU seem are legitimate and proper.I am sure this will solve your problem. They will not like the matter to take a legal turn and will surely walk your dotted lines.
I am sure this would help.

Dear Friend,Hello and welcome again. Thank you for your reply.Sorry for delayed response from my side as I was travelling today.
Coming to your point, NO -- your signing the form will NOT affect it. It would affect you only if you have signed the form that says that you accept the fees. Merely signing the forms with your details does not affect or imply that you have accepted the fees until the fees are expressly mentioned in the form that you have signed.You may go ahead with what I suggested in my earlier reply.
Dear Friend,Even then, its perfectly fine. You will have no problems contesting fine in the two scenarios - One, if you have signed the form wherein it DOES NOT contain any mention of fees; and Two - even if the form that you have signed mentions the fee, you have specifically mentioned / emailed the guy you were dealing with that you do NOT agree to the fees quoted.Either of the scenario puts you in good situation. I believe, try out by writing to them as I suggested in the original reply. Following which, you may seek a legal opinion from a local attorney. However, I feel, if you act as per my first original reply, your problem will be solved to the larger extent.
