Removing the intimidation of claiming
Speaking about the posts, author John Gregory said: "The reality is that hundreds of thousands of people are making PPI claims on their own with no prior experience of complaining to a bank. While the process is simple in theory, the reality of a PPI claim can be very different."
He added: "It's well known that banks are rejecting perfectly good cases, with one even caught training staff to put off claimants. Some lenders will also try to refund less than is owed or hold money back on the grounds that the consumer should've had some cover. Do people know that they can appeal this decision? Do people know that they can even appeal the decision of a Financial Ombudsman adjudicator? We've put this course together to remove the intimidation of claiming and help people get the full PPI refund they deserve."
'Fresh media coverage'
The timing of the course has come in the midst of fresh media coverage about PPI, with lenders setting aside further money for compensation and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) rejecting the idea of a deadline. It's the second time that lenders have tried to establish a PPI Claims deadline, in January 2013 the then Financial Services Authority proposed support but only if lenders paid for a publicity campaign to build awareness of mis sold PPI. The banks didn't fancy it and pulled out of the talks, this time around the City Watchdog wasn't in the mood for any discussions and rejected a deadline outright.
