About Beat The Banks

In the world of financial claims Beat the Banks are a bit of a rarity. We literally have hundreds of years of banking and financial service behind us. We know banks and our industry inside out. We’re here to help our customers and to educate them too. A bit like a real bank manager did in the dim and distant past

Since 2012 Beat the Banks have recovered more then £35 million in mis-sold PPI for our customers. Our director Mike Begg, continues to serve on the Executive Committee of the Alliance of Claims Companies and we have worked tirelessly with the various regulators, MP’s and the press, to help bring lenders to account for continually failing in their obligations when dealing with PPI complaints.

Beat the Banks are also experts on “unfair commission,” PPI claims. Often know as “Plevin” cases, our expertise allows us to still peruse full compensation on rejected standard PPI complaints and even where a partial commission offer has been made.

Since the financial crash in 2008 the level of poor, to the point of fraudulent pension and investment advice has been truly staggering. From consumers being coerced into investing in unregulated assets all over the world to excessive charging and unauthorised individuals and companies, it’s a scandal that’s seen £billions disappear and a subject the Beat the Bank team have a wealth of knowledge on. If you feel you’ve been a victim we’re here to help.

Our huge practical banking knowledge means we also lead the way when it comes to the evolving world of mortgage miscalculation, mis-sold mortgages and mortgage breach of contract claims. Finally, we are now working in the murky field of life insurance, where we have identified that as much as an astonishing 90% of all policies are sold at “business partner rates,” meaning the unsuspecting public paying up as much as an extra 40% on monthly premiums to pay greedy bankers and brokers hugely inflated commissions.

From Our Clients

  • “Huge thank you to the team. After attempting to claim PPI myself and getting absolutely nowhere, I got Beat the Banks involved and ended up getting  £12,000. What a result. Beat the Banks made it so easy and were committed right to the end.”

    Shona, Dundee
  • “From previous experience of PPI claim companies, I was a bit dubious if anyone could help me but I thought I would try Beat The Banks. To say I am pleased with the service and conclusion to my claim is an understatement. Beat the banks and my claim handler in particular handled all aspects of the claim from Clydesdale Bank with professionalism, courtesy, and efficiency to secure a positive result on my behalf. I would certainly recommend the services of Beat the Banks to anyone who thinks they have PPI claim, especially with the Clydesdale Bank.”

    Mr A McQuillian
  • “Down entirely to Mike’s hard work, we previously had a successful claim with Clydesdale Bank. Mike was convinced we had more loans with PPI and he was relentless in efforts to recover our paperwork from the bank. Finally, after many attempts, enough records were recovered to submit several claims. We have now received much more compensation, covering loans going back many, many years. If it had not been for Mike and the team at Beat the Banks this would never, ever have happened. Literally, all we did was sign our name and bank the cheque.”

    T & A, Dundee
  • “I was apprehensive about using a company to claim my PPI as I had previously responded to a “cold call” and was pestered with calls. I heard about Beat The Banks on a local radio station and because they were based in Scotland I felt comfortable approaching them. I have had a very positive experience with Beat The Banks. They are not pushy and answer any queries timeously. All the Agents I have spoken to were knowledgeable, polite and friendly. After the initial information gathering conversation, they understood my needs and just got on with my claim. No hassle. Even when it was clear that my claim was of a relatively low value they processed without delay. I would definitely recommend using Beat The Banks …. they put all the other companies out there to shame.”

    Mrs S, Falkirk
  • “Excellent service so helpful, I received a substantial sum back that I had no idea I was due, thank you again to Beat The Banks especially to Gary who was so helpful and efficient in every way.”

    Mrs M, Elgin
  • “We had no paperwork but £52,500 reasons to say thank you, we are now living our Spanish dream! Exceptional service.”

    Dave & Linda , Dundee

    Mr S, Dingwall
  • “We really appreciate the doggedness and professionalism of Jenna and the team at Beat the Banks. This is something we’d never have gotten round to doing and we’re so glad we went through the process with professionals as we’ve now had great results. Only positives have come from the experience.”

    Mr & Mrs M, Shetland
