Alan Jones had taken out quite a few loans and credit cards in the past, but he had no idea whether or not he had PPI attached to any of them and so had never made a claim.
“Then my partner made a claim through Gladstone Brookes on some of the agreements she had had in the past and got back over £1,500. I thought to myself ‘if she can get a result like that maybe I should have a go’ so I rang up and spoke to an advisor,” said Alan.
Martin Edwards had been with Lloyds Bank for 40 years, starting his account when he was a boy soldier of 15, and had lots of different loans and other agreements with them, but had no idea whether or not PPI was attached to any of them.
Gina Santilli has more than 13,000 good reasons to thank her sister for an early Christmas present because she was the one who persuaded her to make a claim for mis-sold PPI.
Said Gina: “I’d seen the Gladstone Brookes advert on TV loads of times and had never made a claim because I couldn’t remember who I had taken out agreements with as they were all so long ago.Read More
Jeremy Newell has been paraplegic from birth and the severity of his disability has meant he hasn’t been able to have a holiday for 25 years – until now.

There is probably no bigger milestone in life than the birth of your child – particularly if you have had difficulty in conceiving and want one so much.
As a company we are proud to say we were able to help to make that dream come true for two mums who used the compensation we were able to win for mis-sold PPI to undergo successful fertility treatment.Read More
Given the chance which of us would not sooner be working for ourselves than someone else?

Management advisor Ian Daves suspected he might have PPI on his MBNA credit card, but hadn’t kept any paperwork he could check.
Pensioner Mr L.B knew he had taken out several loans and credit cards in the past, but he had no idea whether or not PPI was attached to any of them.
“To be honest, I’d never even thought about making any sort of claim and then I saw the Gladstone Brookes advert and thought I would give it a try and then I could be sure.”
