The mis-selling of payment protection insurance by the banking industry

Payment protection insurance (PPI) has become one of the UK’s largest ever financial scandals, with £26.2bn already repaid.

FCA Investigation

Many banks and financial institutions have been fined for poor handling of PPI claims which left customers waiting months for repayments or being unfairly rejected.

After the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) expressed concerns, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) began an investigation.

Wrongly rejected

Most recent figures from the FOS show an average of 51% of PPI claims referred to them had been wrongly rejected.

Only 20% of rejected claims are estimated to make it to the FOS because consumers mistakenly believe there are no options after an unsuccessful claim.

An undercover operation by The Times newspaper found that Lloyds Banking Group staff were encouraged to reject claims as only a small proportion of consumers would actually appeal to the FOS.
