PPI Manchester

Reclaim PPI Manchester

As one of the largest cities in the UK, Manchester has been an important financial centre for many decades. Banks and building societies had branches all over the city, and for many years a sense of mutual trust existed between the happy customer and the benevolent company. Unfortunately, the PPI scandal has managed to strip away much of that trust, to the point where things may never be the same again.

If you lived in Manchester from the 1990s onwards and took out mortgages, loans, credit cards or store cards, you may well have been mis-sold PPI in the process. In a hectic attempt to maximise profits, many financial institutions turned their attention to the targeted and systematic selling of a product that proved to be of little or no use to the customer. In some of the worst instances, they even failed to inform customers of the presence of PPI in their agreements.

In addition to some of the more familiar high street names that took part in what turned out into a national scandal, there were several sub-prime lenders which also got in on the act. They included Welcome Finance, Citi and HFC, all of whom had a strong presence in Manchester at one time. PPI must have seemed to be a bottomless pit of revenue that would keep on going for many years to come.

Inevitably, the lending boom came to an abrupt end. PPI was shown to be something approaching a white elephant for the consumer, and it soon became apparent that the way it had been sold was a long way short of what we expected from those we once trusted. Mis-selling had been undertaken on an industrial scale, and the powers that be were not impressed.

All the experience and knowledge you’ll ever need

Our specialists at Beat the Banks have many years of experience in the financial sector and an in-depth knowledge of how PPI was marketed and sold. The needs of the consumer were sacrificed in the drive to reach sales targets, and our research has shown that plenty of major names in finance and on the high street were involved. This has put us in a strong position to help former victims seek the justice they deserve.

It seems incomprehensible that so many famous companies took part in the feeding frenzy. Institutions such as NatWest, Marks & Spencer, Barclays, Debenhams, Argos and the Halifax have all been punished in the past for mis-selling PPI, so the chances are you will have been dealing with one or more of them at some point during this period.

It’s so easy to find out more about PPI and whether it affected you. Just complete our online contact form or call the team on 0800 193 1234 and we can take things from there. The big names who pushed this product in such a greedy and cynical manner shouldn’t be allowed to get away with it, so make sure you speak to our specialists 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

  • Dave & Linda , Dundee

  • 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!”
