Hi friends,

 

I am on a mission to claim all the PPI I have ever paid to all my lenders in the past.

 

Amex is the only lender whose statements I have failed to retain. I have their Application acceptance letter for the Blue Card that clearly says ....

 

"Membership Number : xxx xxx xxx

 

14th Sep. 2000

 

Dear xxxx

 

Thank you for applying for the Blue Card .... among the additional benefits and services you may like to consider ....

 

- blah

- blah

- Repayment Protection - which offers you valuable cover at competitive rates - if you are unable to pay ..... Protection takes care of it ...**

 

As requested, we have enrolled you in our Repayment Protection Plan. The means that for a small additional monthly premium you're protected against the unexpected. If you lose your job ......If you decide that you no longer require Repayment Protection, please make sure you let us know in writing within ....... will be happy to cancel your policy and refund any premiums ....

 

.... Yours sincerely"

 

 

I have a couple of questions.

 

I am not sure if I need to SAR this lender. I know through this letter the start date but do not recall when I cancelled the card. What should I say in the FOS about the end date? Will "please check your records do?"

 

Note : Apart from the above letter I have just one more letter in terms of record from Amex.This one is about a £5/- overdue amount but to my advantage has a date of Nov. 2004 which means I held the card at least for 4 years between these two letters.

 

 

Thanks and hugs

Autumn

Hi

 

Just to remind you that this is an account my husband had held for a few years and I am taking care of the claim for him as he works during the bank hours and hence unable to pursue this himself.

 

 

I sent the SAR on the 10th of Jan and received the following letter from Amex on the 17th of Jan ...

 

 

Dear xxxx

 

I would be grateful if you could contact myself at your earliest convenience on 01273 576811.

 

Thank you for your assistance.

 

Yours sincerely

 

xxxx

For Amex

 

I called on this number and this person was not available, I left a message. I received a call back by a different person but Data Protection does not permit him to talk to me on my husband's behalf. Unfortunately, we totally forgot to authorise me in our SAR letter :(

 

Should we be talking to them over the phone at all?

 

We are thinking of sending another letter to them that authorises me to talk to them on my husband's behalf. The person on the phone was okay if my husband answers the security questions and gives the phone to me but my husband was at work. Plus I am not sure if he remembers the security answers with an account that is some 14 years old.

 

Again, I am not sure why we have been asked to get in touch with them over the phone and if we should be doing so at all.

 

Thanks

Autumn

OK, thanks for the response.

 

So, what should I do now.... a) simply be silent or

b) send a letter authorising me plus telling them that we will not communicate over the phone?

 

 

I did mention to the caller two very important things ... 1. He may or may not remember the security answers and that this is a very old account :(

 

Yes kill me.

I never saved any statements on this account.

 

The SAR returned with some 5-6 'sample' statements such as the one I attached in the above post.

 

These sample statements clearly state that they belong to a cancelled account.

 

All the statements are identical but with different dates.

 

Also, I noticed that these statements have dates such as 2008 or even 2009, long after my account was cancelled.

 

I am attaching another sample in this post together with some more correspondence that the bank sent in response to my SAR.

 

I think it is a PPI charged as a percentage of the outstanding balance rather than a flat premium.

 

Which explains why I paid only £55 or so in the 4 years I held the account.

I remember we hardly used the card.

 

Any advice on what should my next action be?

 

Should I send an FOS?

you cant/shouldn't involve the FOS until the creditor refuses your claim....

 

you know you were totally charged £55 PPI within the cards life.

 

that's prob without any interest on top whenever the bits were charged from their monthly dates.

 

but if you don't know? their int rate you cant consider that

 

if you did

you could put in a guestimated spreadsheet dropping to 0 PPI on month one

Posted the following letter. I will send the spreadsheet if the bank asks for one. For now I am leaving it up to them to work it out. Thanks for your last post :)

Dear Sir/Madam,

 

Ref: Membership Number xxxxxxxxx

 

I took out your Blue Card in the month of September 2000 at which time, I was sold a payment protection policy.

 

I believe I was mis-sold the insurance policy. I was and still am in full time employment as a xxxxx at the time of taking out this card and my employer xxxxx provides a generous illness and redundancy package. The Financial Services Authority's advice to consumers is that it is not compulsory for a borrower to take out such an insurance policy. This Payment Protection Insurance cover was clearly mis-sold to me, hence, I request a full refund of all the premiums that I have paid so far, plus interest.

 

Please investigate my complaint within the eight weeks allowed to you before the matter can be referred to the Financial Ombudsman.

 

Yours Faithfully
