First I would send SAR's for both Next and Phoenix if you have not all information.

 

Then submit a PPI complaint to Next who will respond that they were not responsible but it will get things in motion to escalate your complaint with FOS regarding Underwriters responsibility.

 

I am sure others will add to the above but good luck and don't give up as it took mine nearly three years to be eventually settled.

 

Thanks for the advice. It's worth a go I guess!

Hi Baz,

I am not sure about Phoenix, and why they got clobbered but l can only think it was on the basis that they automatically added the PPI to accounts.

Thanks cups.

 

I have asked FOS for an explanation as I have a similar situation on another complaint but they seem to be not applying same stance.

 

I will keep forum posted.

 

Cheers

This has all come as a big surprise to me.

 

 

I felt sure I had PPI on my Next Directory account from 1988 until I cancelled it around 1994,

the account is still active.

 

 

I sent a SAR to Next six months ago,

and it came back with transaction histories from 2000 and no copy of the original agreement

which I had specifically requested, just a generic copy.

 

I wrote back with a failed SAR letter and a very pleasant lady telephoned me at home

and said there was definitely no PPI added when it was opened.

 

 

I said how can you be sure unless you can see the original agreement

and she said they did not need to because there would be notes about insurance on my account,

so I accepted this and thanked her for getting back to me.

 

What should I do now?

I've got the account number but no proof of PPI

Thank you, I am aware PPI or whatever would have been listed on a monthly statement, unfortunately as I said in my post, I do not have any transactions histories prior 2000 which is the reason I tried to obtain a copy of the agreement. The failed SAR didn't produce any results so when I came across this thread it opened up other possibilities.

 

 

It seems every customer with a Next Directory account in the 1980's and 90's had PPI from the outset and I hoped someone on here with a similar experience might be able to advise me.

Hi rosequeen,

 

Mine was from 1991 but I was lucky enough to have old statements proving insurance payments.

 

Did you not receive a statement of account with your SAR ?

 

I requested and received what looked like a computer orientated screen print with ppi total, claim totals etc for the whole account. Maybe go back and ask for further details :wink:

 

Keep forum posted. G/L

Thanks Baz1994, the only records I received from Next were transaction lists from 2000, none from when the account was opened in 1988, and a sample of a credit agreement. My account is still in use but I've got no proof that I paid PPI, although I remember having the insurance until 1994. What can I do?

Well the transaction list that I received actually stated total insurance amount paid from 1991 to date. It also included other payment / interest totals to date so I trust that is what you received otherwise I would be asking Next for further details. It was headed 'Account Enquiry' sheet under my Next Account number.

 

I also sent an SAR to First Assist who were the policy administrators in which I also received policy wording details.

Hi everyone

 

 

I know I definitely had PPI on my account and also remember phoning them years ago to query the PPI on my statements which was automatically added. Unfortunately I do not have any statements only a letter dated 12 December 201 1regarding the T&Cs which reads.

 

 

"Also as part of these changes we have decided to close the Next Directory Flexible Account Payment Protection Plan (PPP, the Plan). Therefore, as Appointed Representative, and with the agreement of FirstAssist Insurance Services Limited on behalf of the Insurer, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Plan, we are required to give all members of the Plan at least 90 days notice that the scheme will close on 31 March 2012. The last date we will charge you for cover is 31 December 2011, although cover will remain in place until 31 March 2012, when the Plan will close".

 

 

I can't remember what year I opened my account. If I write to Phoenix do I need to send them a SAR with a £10 cheque or should I contact Next to obtain further information?

 

 

Thanks for any advice.

Thank you cups and Baz1994. I know that this is an old thread but I wanted to thank you both for your persistence.

 

I've just successfully claimed PPI from Next and it was Phoenix Assurance that I dealt with. I'm just waiting for the payment to come through to my bank account.

 

I was just browsing on the PPI forum to read about other Next successes and came across this thread. My thanks to you both is because I see that it was your persistence that helped establish:

 

1. Who claimants needed to contact to get redress

2. The PPI reclaims process for Next

 

Of the claims that I have done so far, I found this one to be the easiest. I made my complaint via Resolver about 4 weeks ago, was contacted by Phoenix within 2 weeks and received my offer two days ago.

 

Hope you're both well and got some good use out of your award!

    • Received a demand notice for council tax today, demanding some payment by Monday!!! or I will lose my right to pay in installments etc...   I am dealing with arrears and was awaiting a bill from the council regarding this years council tax so I could renogotiate with the debt collectors.   But I didn't receive anything!   So I managed to speak to someone today by phone and email and they are both say they wont accept my offer of a 12 month payment structure UNLESS I SET UP A Direct Debit.   I'm (probably) going to set that up next week and (probably) going to pay them an installment this weekend, however I would like to know what rights I have with regards to this; if there are any possible laws I could pull out of somewhere that I could potentially use to write off my debt to the council for this year on grounds of something?   I have told them by email they are in no position to demand anything from me at this point, because I never received any letter asking for payment in the first instance (which I would assume legally negates any power they can exercise through the current final demand letter they just sent me). I told them either accept my offer (pending any further arrangment for payment) or I will assume that I owe them nothing for this year.   I can't prove I didn'r receive the letter though, but I honestly didn't. They can't prove I did receive it either.   So my question is (pending any further payments and negotiations) is there a nice little legal loophole I can use to get out of paying council tax for this year on the above grounds?   I guess not (probably) but worth a punt anyway.              
    • ok sorry I missed a bit so where are you at now. you've got the warrant stayed?
    • thanks for your help guys, not going to lie this is really stressing me out
    • uploads removed 1st page has your name
    • Thankyou Captain Obvious, I am well aware of this. However, unless I have the money to pay the charges in the first place then I'm not really in a position to claim anything back. Perhaps it's better if I challenge the system on all the above grounds I have highlighted instead. I am still waiting a response from the dental practise or the NHS about my advice to them to claim the costs back from the practise for substandard treatment.
  • Our picks

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
