Hello ajs444,


try this link to the FSA register.


FSA Register


Just type in the name of the firm in firm name window/box and search you will see lilal is correct about the dates. However you have to remember that prior to the FSA taking regulatory control on 14 Jan 2005 these institutions still had to have some regulation usually self regulated through GISC/FLA etc.


When the results come up you can click on the left hand red links for more detailed information on any firm you search.


Please have a look through any relevant threads in here, big thread lots of information.




There is info here on FLA and GISC.


You can also use companies house for info on paradise group please see this.


Companies House


Go to the right hand side and search company information type in company name paradise group and you will get a list of companies with that name. There are a lot of them:eek:


I see on my search that Paradise Group Ltd are at the top of the list company number 05683960q just click on this number and you get yet more information.


Now I am not sure if this is the company you have a quibble with but the links may help you find the one you want from any information you already hold.


I hope this is of use;)





I have no legal training and the advice I offer is a matter of support. Before you commit to any Legal action you are advised to contact a qualified legal practitioner.


Bank charge successes:

Halifax - Full settlement incl interest.

HSBC - Settlement, goodwill no admission of liability about 75% of claim.

RBS - Settlement, goodwill no admission of liability about 70% of claim.

2 ongoing claims for bank charges with HSBC with more to come. (Supreme Court ruling could have upset these claims) They did :mad:

PPI Successes

PPI 4 settlements on 9 loans. FOS involvement on 7 added on the 8 % Statutory interest another 30% to both.

2 claims settled in full with LV without FOS involvement.

2 claims settled in full with HSBC without FOS involvement


PPI Claims ongoing with:

Cap one Now with the FOS

Barclays. Paid up today 24/04/10 cheque received for over £4,500 and in the bank.

LTSB still have to decide on this as their SAR production was abysmal. Papers data mixed up documents missing etc


1 Complaint not upheld by FOS they said it was ICO issue. Complaint upheld by ICO. See this..

***RBS PPI Claim Long fight but, WON***


Please do not PM me for advice as it may be sometime before I can respond.


Keep at them. Do not give way and do not accept all they tell you, they will delay and stall for as long as they can to prevent repaying you your mis-sold PPI.

My wife suggesting that I resurrect this claim by going through one of the numerous claims companies. I know the money is lying there ready to be taken but after all the problems 2 years ago I do not have the appetite for doing it myself.

So took out loan in Nov. 2001 and £359.57 loaded onto the account for PPI., continued paying at 10.8% interest until July 2007, when loan was paid off.

Anything changed with this lot since I first raised the point with them 2 years ago?

Apart from being taken over by Santander.

Hi , I had an agreement with First National which was eventually administered by GE Money, at the point of sale PPI was added for a 5 year policy (2001-2006), the amount paid upfront came to £359.57(APR 15.7%), this was added to the agreement and subsequent repayments.


I approached GE back in 2008 and was basically told to p**s off, not our problem, go and chase the issuer of the agreement, but since the original seller and First National no longer exist, the claim has been in limbo in my files.


Having done a bit more digging, I have discovered that the premium was paid to Pinnacle Partnerships, based in Borehamwood and having read some threads in this section I can see the name Pinnacle cropping up in several cases.


Anyone have contact details for them and would it be worth my while chasing them?
