Hi, jster$$$

 

Look for the Heading "Interest rate" in the Spreadsheet tab "8% Interest" and change it to 41.6. (Cell I3, I think?).

 

Good luck - get back if you need any more help.

hi itsme,

 

i'm so glad you've come along. i could do with some help.

 

will try to make this as brief as i can!!!

 

purchased car in 2002 was told i had to have insurance said i didn't want it, was told i couldn't have the car then so agreed to have it. (same old story)

paid for about 3 years (4 year term) stopped paying as had some difficulties. managed to fob them off for about a year. then we discussed a new arrangment for me to pay £70 per month for two years (originally was £198) and they would write off the remainder (approx £1400).

 

i phoned them last week and asked them for a copy of my contract and a breakdown of payments, which i received on monday. so i never actually sent sar or cca but received what i needed with the phone call. (also on my breakdown of payments there were fees of £20 and £5 totalling £155 which i knew nothing about)

 

my next step was the send them the following letter which i found whilst looking through many posts on here

Dear Sir or Madam,

 

Re: Complaint and request for return of Payment Protection Insurance premium and contractual interest.

Customer Number: xxxxxx

 

On the 21st March 2002 I took out a car loan from Associates which was later sold to you in or around January 2003. The loan on the car was initially for £3060. This amount was to be paid over 48 months at £119.85 per month, totaling £5752.80.

 

When I took it out, I signed up for Payment Protection Insurance [PPI]. At the time I was experiencing some short term financial difficulties and I told the sales rep I did not require the insurance to which I was told that I could not have the car loan unless I agreed to take the insurance.

 

No claim was ever made under the policy.

 

I now realize following the recent OFT and FSA investigations, that you mis-sold me this insurance policy, which I did not want and did not need. I believe I signed up for the insurance under economic duress and that your actions were unconscionable.

 

I am writing to ask you to refund the premium paid together with interest equal to your APR at the time under the accepted principle of mutuality and reciprocity.

 

Your responsibilities

 

I would draw your attention to the terms of the contract which you agreed to at the time that I opened my account. It is an implied term of that contract that you would conduct yourselves lawfully and in a manner which complies with UK law.

 

I am frankly shocked that you have operated my loan account in this way as I had always reposed confidence in your integrity and expertise as my fiduciary.

 

No attempt was made to ascertain if the product provided was fit for purpose, suitable for my needs or if indeed if I really needed it at all. No inquiry was made as whether I had preexisting insurance for accident, illness or unemployment. I was not given a copy of the insurance policy nor were any rights to cancel explained. I believe you manifestly failed in your fiduciary responsibilities, your duty of care.

 

Finally I believe insurance contracts are contracts uberrimae fidei (contracts of the utmost good faith) which imposes on you a “duty of disclosure of all material facts because one party is in a strong position to know the truth.” Inter alia, I believe that you should have disclosed to me that the type of policy you sold me, a single payment premium, did not give a pro-rata refund in event of early settlement. I believe you should have made it clear to me that the policy generated large profits for you. You failed to do this. I believe that you have also therefore failed in your duty of disclosure. Your failure to disclose is misrepresentation at common law.

 

What I require

 

Your concealment of the act of mis-selling has prevented me from asserting my right until now. I believe that there are strong grounds for action against you under common law, statute and consumer regulations.

 

The original premium for the insurance was £2019.00 plus interest of £1776.84 totaling £3795.84 this was to be paid over 48 months at 79.08 per month.

The loan plus the interest equals £9548.64 I have paid to date a total of £7754.69 this leaves a balance of £1793.95

 

I require a refund of £2001.89 plus contractual interest of 41.6% and a nil balance owing to you.

 

Alternatively I will ask the Court to allow me statutory interest at 8% under S69 of the Count Court Act.

 

My targets to resolve this matter

 

I hope that you will enter into a sincere dialogue with me about this matter and I am writing this letter to you on the assumption that you will prefer to do this than merely respond with standard letters and leaflets. I will give you 14 days to reply to me accepting, unconditionally, my request in principle and letting me know a date by which I will receive payment.

 

If you do not respond, or you do not respond positively, within this time period, I shall send you a letter before action giving you a further 14 days in which to reflect. I believe that this time frame is sufficient for a large company such as yours with its dedicated staff and departments. After that, there will be no further communication from me and I shall issue a claim at the expiry of the second deadline.

 

Yours faithfully,

now i am stuck with the spreadsheet i have looked at a few and i have no idea what i'm doing. i don't know how to change the % rate, also do i put each monthly amount and calculate the % from that date. as i have been put on a payment plan i don't know how much is coming off insurance and how much i coming off the car finance.:confused:

i have successfully claimed back bank and credit card charges and thought i had a good knowledge of what i was doing but the whole ppi thing is much more complicated.

any help would be much appreciated

could someone advise me?

i've just sent my letter off asking for money back. The way i calculated interest was to work out how much PPI was as a percentage of loan then use this to calculate a rebate due on each payment of interest shown on the statement that welcome send out

 

simple example

 

you borrow £7000

PPI £3000

total £10000

 

so PPi is 30% of total borrowed

 

then on each payment you'll see how much is knocked of balance on your statement.

 

eg. your payments are £1000 per month but it only shows as knocking £400 off your balance so that means you pay £600 in interest.

 

£600 times 30% is £180 so you add £180 per month to original sum of £3000 and you have the amount to claim back

 

hope this helps

thank you so much. i will try and make it understandable!!!

 

overall i had to pay 198.93 for 48 months. this consists of loan and ppi.

 

3060= loan

46.2%= APR

119.85 for 48 months

 

PPI

 

915 = 24 months warranty cover

150 = GAP

954 = option to purchase fee

1176.84 = interest (total charge for credit)

41.6% = APR

 

79.08 to be paid over 48 months.

 

i will try and scan agreement to you it may make more sense

wow itsme you certainly know what you are doing;) .

 

right here goes

 

first payment was made on 07/05/02 and then monthly around the same date until 07/02/05 (i did miss one payment which was agreed by welcome in july 03)making a total of 33 payments. all these payments were for £198.93. £79.08 of that was for insurances the rest was for car loan. then i never paid anything until 05/01/06. since then i have paid £70 per month for the last 17 months.

 

according to the breakdown of payments they have charged me for bounced DDs some £20 and some £5.

 

£20 - 05/04/05

£20 - 05/05/05

£5 - 05/06/05

£5 - 21/06/05

£20 - 05/02/06

£20 - 05/03/06

£20 - 05/07/06

£20 - 05/08/06

£20 - 05/11/06

£5 - 05/02/07

 

i have an outstanding balance of 1948.95. they say if i make 7 more payments of £70 then they will write off the remaining balance.

 

regarding what i am claiming for, i was under the impression that they cannot force you to buy insurance so all of it .....if i'm incorrect in thinking this please let me know.

 

many thanks

Dear J,

I'd also advise you to send a complaint to FSA, explaining tham that PPI was mis-sold..You can find a copy in my thread, but obviously yours one would be different...

Have a great day.

hi

 

will the following be ok to send to FSA???

 

I wish to make a complaint regarding Welcome Finance. In March 2002 I took out car finance with Welcome Finance. The Finance they offered me included insurance which I told the sales rep I did not want but she told me I had to have it or I couldn’t have the car. I was led to believe that taking PPI was a condition of being approved for a personal loan. I have subsequently found out that PPI is optional and I feel that I was pressurized into agreeing to take this out. Yours sincerely

right i'm going to start the ball rolling with the following letter. any advise would be great

 

Dear Sir or Madam,

hi everyone

 

well i received a reply only a week after i sent my prelim.

 

they are refering my matter to my local branch!!

 

I originally complained to my local branch and told them i would be claiming missold PPI and i would be doing this via their head office. the lady then told me the matter would be transfered to her, which it has.

 

i'm awaiting a response from her within the next few days but when i originally complained she told me that there would be nothing she can do, which is what i'm expecting her to say again.

 

does anyone think it is worth going to the financial ombudsman?????

 

or

 

shall i carry on with LBA next???

Hello J,

do not know anybody that has received a help from FOS re Welcome.

 

FSA is very interested in a mis-selling PPI.

 

Continue with LBA, stick to your deadline!

Enclosed with letter from welcome there was a page with their complaints handling procedure. At the bottom it says "welcome is a member or the finance and lending association and subscribes to the FLA consumer code or practice"

 

Well i have searched on the FLA website and cannot find welcome as one of their members!!!!!:mad:

 

Is this a bit naughty on Welcomes part??
