PPI refunds have come as an early Christmas present to thousands of people this year – but what would you do if you found you had an unexpected windfall just before the start of the festive season?
The average PPI refund is around £2,700 and Gladstone Brookes has been responsible for recovering more than £362 million for our clients over the last five years for their mis-sold PPI policies.
Top PPI claims company Gladstone Brookes today backed the growing campaign for a complete ban on cold calling. As a recent study found that one in five people had been cold called either by phone or text message in a single 24 hour period, Gladstone Brookes said: “There’s just no need for it. We have a highly successful business and we don’t cold call – ever.”
Retired nurse Joan Anderson from Stirling in Scotland was convinced she had never taken out payment protection insurance on any finance she took on and so didn’t make a PPI claim.
“It’s just something I don’t do. I never take extended warranties or anything like that,” she says.
