PPI Leeds

PPI Leeds

The tentacles of the UK’s PPI scandal reached all corners of the country, but in many cases they started in and around the Leeds area. Major names such as the Halifax, the Yorkshire, the Skipton and Yorkshire Bank all sold PPI with an increasing level of gusto as the lending boom continued. And in 1990 the latter was taken over by the Clydesdale, an organisation that was fined more than £20 million after what the FCA described as ‘serious failings’ in the way it handled compensation cases.

Here at Beat the Banks, we are proud of the fact that we played a significant role in the process that led to the Clydesdale’s punishment. We worked alongside Members of Parliament and the media to bring justice to thousands of people who were so poorly treated over a number of years. If you’d like to find out whether you may be due compensation, call 0800 193 1234 and have a chat with our friendly team.

If you lived in Leeds at any time over the last three decades and you took out any form of credit agreement, there’s a chance that you were mis-sold PPI at some point. Products such as bank loans, mortgages, store cards, car loans and credit cards are just some of the purchases that regularly came with PPI tacked onto them. It seems inconceivable to say this, but in many cases it was added on without the borrower being told, let alone asked.

PPI you neither wanted or needed

In the vast majority of instances, PPI was next to useless for the consumer anyway. Many people found themselves lumbered with a policy that was completely unnecessary, and in the process the lenders made a small fortune. Instead of our banks and building societies being financial institutions that we could always trust, they evolved into corporate giants that were motivated by selling, selling and more selling.

It’s worth noting that a number of famous name stores, many of them with branches in the shopping areas of Leeds, also got in on the act. Store cards were seen as a convenient way for consumers to shop, but in a great many cases they also included PPI cover which was of little or no use to the card-holder. For the victims of this scandalous development, a great deal of money was wasted along the way.

The team at Beat the Banks has been mounting and winning robust compensation cases against a number of major players in the UK’s financial sector in recent years, and we continue to fight for justice for the nation’s victims. We have a number of industry experts who have spent many years working for some of the most famous names in banking and finance, giving us a wonderful insight into what went on.

If you feel you may have been mis-sold PPI in the past, we’d like to hear your story. It’s so easy to get in touch via the online contact form or by phone on 0800 193 1234. We hope to hear from you soon.

  • 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.”

    “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!”
