Mis-sold PPI on loans and credit cards
As well as running their own credit cards, MBNA are also responsible for a wide range of credit and store cards which they administer for other companies, including seven Premier League football teams, two Middle East airlines and two .com companies.
They are the largest credit card company in Europe and, in common with many others, they have sold PPI to their clients for years. The insurance was meant to ensure that card holders could continue to make their payments if ever they came out of work through accident, sickness or unemployment. Read on to find out more about MBNA PPI Claims.
But the cover was often mis-sold to people who didn’t want it, didn’t need it or couldn’t have made a claim because of an exclusion clause built into the policy.
One lady claimant received back £65,000 for PPI mis-sold on two credit cards. She had been paying PPI for 10 years, but she should never have been sold the policy in the first place because she was a self-employed company director and could never have made a successful claim on the insurance.
Was my policy mis-sold?
If you’re not sure whether your MBNA PPI policy was mis-sold then ask yourself the following questions:
- Did you even know it had been attached to your agreement?
- Did MBNA check if you had alternative cover in place which would have made their policy unnecessary?
- Were the full costs of the policy explained separately to you?
- Were you made to feel you had to take the policy to secure the finance you wanted?
- Do you think that the PPI advice given by MBNA was fair and accurate?
If any of the above scenarios apply to you, then you were possibly mis-sold your policy and could make a claim to get back any money that’s rightfully yours.
