I initially pursued ppi via one of those companies that advertised their services.

Santander came back to say claim not valid and copied to the claims company.


Santander said I could take this to ombudsman but needed to do so within 6 months of date of rejection from Santander.

 I heard nothing from the claims company in nearly 6 months

I then pursued via the finance ombudsman who judged in my favour. 

My question is

can the claims company take a percentage of any money I may get back as a consequence of me pursuing Santander via ombudsman?


The claims company did not challenge the decision by Santander nor contact me to arrange a challenge via ombudsman, and I nearly lost out with the 6 month deadline.

I suppose they might try but I would say that you have got a very good case against them.

Have they suddenly pop their heads out demanding a share?

What's the name of the claims company?

Also, maybe you better give us some dates as to when this all happened

was this only ppi claim you went to the fleecing CMC with?

and did you sign a letter of authority for them to act upon your behalf?

who did you sign up with and by what method?


looks like you might lose up to 40% of your winnings for one simple letter you could of sent for free yourself if you did sign anything...

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...

I agree that there could be a risk of losing the percentage to them – but on the other hand, they stop communicating with you and eventually you had to go and do it yourself to the ombudsman. It sounds to me as if they were fundamentally in breach of contract. Clearly they had to employ best efforts and they were unable to do that and you managed it yourself.

I think if you get any trouble, you should let us help you to defend your position.

What's the value anyway? How much are we talking about?
