SUCCESS STORY – It’s like winning the pools or the lottery!

It’s like winning the pools or the lottery!

Newsagent Alan Bennett was delighted when he received more than £25,700 in compensation for mis-sold PPI after claiming with Gladstone Brookes.

“I was really surprised at how much I got back,” he said. “It’s like winning the pools or the lottery.”

Expected

But the money didn’t come from where he expected it to.

Said Alan: “I’ve been in business from more than 20 years and throughout that time my partner and I took out quite a lot of loans with a number of different banks.  We had a few credit cards going as well.

Claims

“I couldn’t be sure, but I thought we might have taken PPI on at least some of them, so I decided to call Gladstone Brookes to see if they could help me find out.  They made the claims for me and every one of them came back negative!”

Then came the big surprise – a string of PPI payouts on loans from his personal Lloyds bank account, adding up to £25,764.01!

Loans

“I couldn’t believe it,” said Alan.  “I’ve been with the bank 47 years and unbeknown to me I had been paying PPI on a whole series of loan agreements.

“If Gladstone Brookes hadn’t checked them out for me I would have been none the wiser.  The service has been fantastic – really good.  I was kept up to date the whole way through,” he added.
