Hello, Been a while! I'm trying to arrange a PPI refund on my load with GE Money. I've sent them a form detailing my complaint - and they've come back to me today, saying- They've looked into my unfair PPI claim They've looked into the commission paid to by the insurer to the lender. They're not going to uphold my complaint, because, according to the copy of the agreement shown - the loan was dealt with by a broker 'The Personal Loan Express' it was taken out in September 2003. all the boxes were typed in, and all the boxes ticked for insurance. I recall this was all done over the phone, and they told me to sign the forms and send them back, and because of the type of loan it was, i would have to pay PPI. they're not upholding it because - it's not their problem - The Personal Loan Express. have gone out of business. i can't go to the FOS because it falls out of their remit because the ICOB 'Insurance conduct of business' wasn't started until 2005 They've reviewed my account in connection to the relationship between me and GE Money, in respect of the loan agreement being unfair under s104a of the CCA because of undisclosed commission paid by the insurer to the lender/broker. They're not upholding that either - apparently s104a of the act doesn't apply to the loan agreement, because the loan agreement was entered into before April 2007, and redeemed prior to April 2008. This also falls out of the FOS jurisdiction. They've suggested i approach the FLA, closed my complaint and told me politely not to bother contacting them again. Somehow, even after the length of time - i feel a little short-changed (pardon the pun) It's almost like they're saying 'Yes we knew you had PPI, you can't claim because the firms gone bust, and plus too much time has passed.' I've got a copy of the letter which i'm happy to redact and post, as well as the one page of the agreement. Any advice, would be very grateful Cheers Dman
I am confused by the information regarding interest which can be claimed for PPI mis-selling. 12 months ago I understood that CI could be calculated from the date that the Credit Card was taken out up until the present date regardless of whether the account was still active. Having read recent posts I get the impression that CI can only be claimed until the account is closed, or the balance is zero and thereafter interest of 8% applies. Can someone clarify this please? And does the same rule apply to unlawful charges? Thanks suvin
