  1. Hi all, Thanks for your advice so far. I have submitted an SAR along with an initial complaint letter to The Claims Guys (I won't post here but happy to share the text of the letter with anyone by direct message/email). I listed 5 issues/factors where I felt we had legitimate complaints (including Clause 3c as above - thanks cjcregg) have received a reply from them summarising our concerns and asking for time to investigate them. I believe that they have 8 weeks to investigate according to the Legal Ombudsman and I have informed them that we will be raisi
  2. Thanks dx100uk. I saw that thread earlier and it gave me a little hope that we might be able to do this. Her situation was a bit different so we'll have to see what happens I suppose.

I object strongly to paying these jokers anything at all, but despite interrogating my husband, I can't seem to work out how they got from free check to binding contract. I believe he only signed letters of authority for 2 companies (he can't remember which ones) but we have already been contacted by 3 companies so I really don't know what is going on.
