I never thought I'd be likely to have PPI
but I finaly relented to one of those cold calls on the basis that I'd be happy to pay 25% for money I never knew I had.
Surprise surprise £812 was payed into my bank account last friday.
By monday the claim company were on the phone asking for their 25% + Vat - £269 the guy said.
I said I'd pay by BACS.
I then realised that 25% + VAT on £812 was not £269 so I adjusted the figure and made the payment.
I had a guy phone me today saying I'm £25 short on my payment.
He said that Barclays awarded me more than £812 but deducted TAX on the interest portion of the payment.
The guy declared that their charge was based on the full ammount prior to deduction.
I said I was happy to pay commission on what I HAD been paid but not on what I HANDN'T.
I've since had documentation from Barclays showing that tax had been deducted.
He started to harrass me then and
I said their charge was unconcionable and I would not pay £25 more. I said see you in court".
He proceeded to browbeat me and the call lasted about 15 mins.
He declared they would pursue me to the end's of the earth for this £25 (or words to that effect)
I'd be interested in any comment or suggestions. Telling me that I should not have used a claims company would not be helpful at this point.
