SUCCESS STORY – I was expecting £2,000!

PPI success story

Neil Page had never got around to making any sort of claim for mis-sold PPI, but when he saw the Gladstone Brookes TV advert he finally decided to give it a go.

“Why not give it a go,” I thought.  “I’ve nothing to lose.  So I gave them a call and waited to see what happened.”


The Gladstone Brookes investigation discovered four separate agreements with PPI attached and once the claims had been made Natwest and Barclaycard both admitted the insurance had been mis-sold.

Natwest offered £4,818.43 for PPI mis-sold on a loan and Barclaycard paid out £14,377.50 on three separate cards to make a grand total of £19,195.93.


“The service was great.  I can’t fault it.  I was expecting £2,000 back at most and they got me back almost 10 times that,” said Neil.

SUCCESS STORY – It felt like I’d won the lottery!

PPI success story

When Margo Flanagan decided to see if she had PPI attached to any of her former finance agreements she thought she might get £100 to £200 if it was found he had been mis-sold.

“I couldn’t believe it when the letter came to tell me how much money I would be getting back.  It felt like I’d won the lottery,” she said.

TV advert

“It was the TV advert that prompted me to make the call,” she said.

The resulting investigation found that PPI had been mis-sold on a Bank Of Scotland loan and Margo ended up with £7,122.35 compensation.


Said Margo: “I had no idea whether or not I had been mis-sold PPI at any time over the years, but the service from Gladstone Brookes made the whole process so easy.

“It couldn’t have happened at a better time for me financially and I’ve already been recommending the service to family and friends.”
