Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Did you submit your claim directly to the card issuer or did you use a third party claims company to do that?
a third party did it, although I informed them about my "self employed status" which was from 1977 onwards
Any more news from Ben Jones please ????
Hi sorry I was offline b y the time you replied to my initial query. What do they mean that you signed their contract offer - are they referring to a contract you signed at the time you took out the PPI insurance?
They inferred I signed a contract when I took out the Credit Card in early 1990's. I have asked them to copy me with this contract, but I never had any response from them..
If the card company have rejected your initial claim for a refund on the PPI, then you would be expected to follow their full complaints process. You can contact them to advise them that you are not happy with the outcome of the claim you made and ask if it is possible to complain any further internally or have your case reviewed. If they do not have a further complaint process which you can use or their final decision is not to your satisfaction, then you can take this to the Financial Ombudsman Service. This is an independent body which oversees consumer complaints in the financial services industry and their decision is binding. So if the FOS finds in your favour then the card issuer will be obliged to pay you the compensation they have been ordered to. However, if the FOS rejects your claim then you simply cannot claim any further and can at least get some closure. Their service is free and you can get details on how to use them here:
Hope this clarifies your position? If you could please let me know that would be great, thank you
