Hi,
Thank you.
If the call was unsolicited and you never instructed this company to act your behalf then I would not correspond with this company or send them any money.
If you know that you have been mis sold PPI you can make the complaint yourself directly to the Bank and the Ombudsman.
If this company has been pursuing the claim without your permission then you should report them to Trading Standards - www.tradingstandards.gov.uk/
I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards
