James and Suzanna Moss suspected they might have PPI attached to the credit card they had from Halifax and called in at their local branch to see if they could make a claim for possible mis-selling.
“But they told us we didn’t have any PPI – definitely,” said James.
Damian Shaw had seen the Gladstone Brookes advert on TV many time but never did anything about making his own PPI claim until in 2016 a friend suggested he make the call.
He was unsure how much PPI he may have had attached to agreements in the past and was surprised when his enquiry uncovered it was attached to four loans from Halifax. Following an investigation, the lender agreed he had been mis-sold the policies and paid him £5,334 in compensation.
Our client with the biggest ever payout had heard all about PPI and the possibility of compensation available if the policies had been mis-sold, but he never did anything about it.
“If I’m honest about it there was a mixture of laziness and a lack of knowledge about how to go about it,” he said.

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.
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.”
People have lots of reasons for not making a PPI claim and at Gladstone Brookes, we hear them all.
Some have been too busy to make a claim and others – like 19% of those surveyed by Which? recently – think that the potential amount of compensation is not worth the effort.
