Hi all,


First time poster so hope I'm not breaking any rules with this one.


I've had a number of loans over the last 10 years, some with and some without PPI - I've been keeping an eye on the whole issue for a while now and always though it wasn't worth claiming as unfortunately I'm one of these people who nevers keeps financial documents.


Looking at my credit file from creditexpert, I can see that I've had the following loans:





Account Opened Account Closed

19/05/2005 23/12/2006

23/12/2005 09/11/2007






Account Opened Account Closed

08/09/2006 07/11/2007

26/10/2006 04/07/2007

05/11/2007 10/12/2008


And I know I had a Welcome Finance loan, going back possibly to around 2003 - but I can't be 100% sure.


To be honest I can't even remember if I didn't had PPI on all of the above, so I guess my question would be - is it worth claiming for the above if I don't have any documentation or numbers relevant to the agreements? If so, where do I start - would it be with a SARs request?


Apologies for asking lots of questions that I'm sure have been answered before, not really sure where to start with this one.

yes sar



please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

You can find a draft letter for a Subject Access Request in the CAG library.


Send each Bank/Creditor a SAR with the fee of £10.00. If you have moved at any time during your relationship with any of them, then in order to help them find data, give them all addresses - especially where you dont have any account numbers.


They have 40 calendar days to provide you with the information you require. Then you can start to work on reclaiming the PPI :)
