How It Works

Who We Are And What We Do

Beat the Banks is a compensations claims company based in Dundee, Scotland. We employ a knowledgeable and friendly team of specialists, most of whom have several years of working experience in the banking industry. We utilise our in-depth understanding of the financial sector to help our customers pursue strong, tenacious and robust compensation claims through the tried and trusted processes.

We apply the same care and attention to every case, no matter how large or small. We pursue claims against banks, credit providers, pension advisors and financial brokers to help our customers get the justice they deserve, bringing them the reassurance to know they’re dealing with the accredited, experienced professionals right from the start.

Beat the Banks seek full disclosure of financial records when pursuing claims, a process that many other claims management companies fail to do. We believe in going through every claim in great detail without opting for the quick win that others choose, a strategy that can lead to claimants only receiving part of the moneys that could have been reached.

We don’t believe in asking customers to complete reams of unnecessary paperwork. Once we have the information we need from them, we start to build a case that’s based on the complete picture rather than only part of the story. In most cases, our customers provide the information we need then settle back to leave it to the specialists. It really is as simple as that.

It’s time to get something done about the injustice

After the far too enthusiastic selling of PPI in previous decades, it’s refreshing to know there are leading professionals who are on your side to help you mount a claim. And the best news of all is you just have to make a quick call to Beat the Banks on 0800 193 1234 or complete the form to start the ball rolling. You have so little to lose, so please get in touch today.

And of course if you haven’t had PPI but you feel you may have been mis-sold pension, mortgage, investment or other financial advice, we’d be more than happy to hear from you. There have been far too many cases of injustice in the UK in recent years, and we at Beat the Banks continue to do something about it. For us, it might be complex, but for you we make sure it’s easy.

Message From Mike Begg

Mike Begg is the Managing Director of Beat The Banks

We are a PPI reclaims company based in Dundee, Scotland. All our claims experts are ex bank lending managers and most of our team have a banking or financial services background.

Using our skills and knowledge, our aim is to complete every claim, no matter how big or small, with the same level of care and attention. It’s not our policy to submit claims for mis-sold PPI, unless our clients have the appropriate paperwork and a clear recollection of the circumstances of the sale of the insurance. If they don’t, it’s then our job to recover the full borrowing paperwork from the lender before submitting a claim.

This is a world away from other claims companies who only pursue “mini Sarn” information. Skeletal account information that provides no supporting paperwork, can frequently be wrong, is not covered under the Data Protection Act 1998 and often very much time limited.
Some of the dirty sakes tricks applied across the banking industry over the last twenty five plus years have been truly horrific. Light years away from the morals and ethics that existed when I embarked on my banking career away back in 1980.

Greed and target driven selling saw banking morph from cosy friendly banking to screwing every last penny from customers. Beat the Banks was set up to help people by using our intimate knowledge of the industry. I’m proud to say that we have now reclaimed more than £25 million for our customers.

We firmly believe that less than 50% of the public who were mis-sold PPI, have claimed and with a deadline of 29 August 2019, time really is running out. If you or any of your friends or relations haven’t already claimed, please don’t lose the chance and let the banks win. The team at Beat the Banks is here to make claiming as simple and pain free as possible.

  • Mrs C, Glasgow

    “From beginning to end, Beat the Banks have been very efficient. I am very pleased with the service from Jenna and the team. I am highly delighted and I have been recommending all of my friends.”

  • Shona, Dundee

    “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.”

  • Mr A McQuillian

    “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.”

  • Mrs S, Falkirk

    “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.”

  • T & A, Dundee

    “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.”

  • Mr & Mrs M, Shetland

    “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.”

  • 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.”

  • Dave & Linda , Dundee

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

  • Mr S, Dingwall

    “Have just found out I have won all my cases with the bank, going back many years and been awarded compensation of just over £15,000!”
