Ok,

 

Here goes ...... recieved the letter from firstplus to tell me i am near my 5 year anniversary. I need to fill in a form to claim my cash back.

 

After reading this forum about PPI and firstplus, I had a look at my documents.

I feel I am a good candidate for a Mis-sold PPI claim.

 

There's a lot of other institutions mention about PPI, but I cannot seem to find any relating to firstplus, although they have a bad reputation for it.

 

Could some body point me in the general direction for a good first letter to send to firstplus?

 

any help appreciated.

ref Calculations for refund.

 

what exactly do we claim for.

payments, contractual interest and/or 8% interest.

 

do we just add up the the original Sum + payments made + contractual % + 8% ?

 

or is it either 8% or Contractual % or do they get to chose.

 

Contractual is a more beneficial option to me as all the contractual intrest was above 8%. started at 8.9 and hasn't dipped since. has risen to 10.8% as of feb 2008, but i'm sure that has change since then. i'm awaiting a history of interest rate changes from FP at the moment.

Hi Sharpman,

 

The calculation should be either total amount of PPI plus total interest charged on PPi, which you should get from your credit agreement, then add 8% statutory interest from the date of each payment, to date of settlement.

 

This is the method FOS use, the other method is monthly payments of PPi x no of payments, plus 8% statutory. The payments you make every month against the PPI include the compound interest.

so,

would this sound about right.

original up front payment £6612.30 - 240 payments 0f 57.78 = 13867.2

(the payment amount will change, as soon as FP provide me with the breakdown)

 

£13867.20 - £6612.30 = £7254.90 (interest.)

 

So If all goes according to plan I should get the 13867.20 + the total of £57.78 @ 8% interest (or what ever the payments are)

 

(Obviously, those figures are subject to change as the APR fluctuated.)

Hi Sharpman,

 

No, it doesn't actually work like that.

 

Using your hypothetical figures:

 

Original PPI amount: £6612.30

Plus interest charged: ????????

Les early settlement rebate: ???????

Plus stat int. @ 8% per annum: ?????

 

Or

PPI repayments already made: £57.78 x 60 (5 years) = £3466.80

Plus statutory interest @ 8% on each payment

from the date of each payment = ?????????

 

The remaining PPI would be cancelled, which should in theory reduce your monthly payments by £57.78 for the remained of the loan.

 

Hope this makes it clearer

hey Dj1971, where does the early settlement rebate come into it.

What is there to settle. Mis sold PPI, and they get to keep some of the dough?

as suggested here is a copy of the loan agreement with the ppi details.

No, the loan still has some way to go yet.

Sharpman,

 

I didn't suggest they keep the settlement rebate. It will come off the balance you own on the loan, rather than paid directly to you.

then method two.

 

add 8% to every PPI payment made from its date to the date of your claim.

 

use Compound interest calculator

compound monthly

principal is payment

int 8%

 

the unpaid PPI should be simply be removed from the outstanding and the PCM reduced by the PPI element as advised.

Ok, Sent off SAR. But like an plonker I forgot to put the £10.00 postal order in the envelope.

Needless to say that came back to me sharpish....

 

So, re printed SAR, added the PO into the envelope and posted off.

 

Subsequently it was returned again shortly afterwards. I had put electronic signatures on the request.

 

They rejected the application on the grounds of 'not satisfied of the identity of requesting parties.

 

the first time it was returned I can understand, but this time it appears they are playing silly beggars.

 

I know there's a letter out there to send them to tell them to wind their necks in as they have written to my address etc. something along those lines.

 

does any body know the location of said letter / template.

 

This new format forum is a nightmare, can't find anything.

tbh I would probably just sign it and send it back. Although people say not to, on a SAR they do not have to budge or comply until they are satisified it is you. Even if you complained to the ICO after about 3 years the ICO would agree with the OC

 

If the agreement that you have is signed anyway and there is nothing wrong with it, then you may as well just sign it, but add a line or a couple of dots to see if it has been used in the future.
