PPI Shetlands

Recover PPI From The Shetlands With Beat The Banks

The Shetlands were home to branches of just about all the major names in finance in the early 1990s. Famous institutions such as Barclays, Bank of Scotland, TSB, RBS and the Clydesdale all maintained a high profile here, and after many years of doing business with the locals they were seen as trustworthy and reliable. Unfortunately, as the 1980s drew to a close, something happened to change all that.

The introduction of Personal Protection Insurance (PPI) was a game-changer in the UK’s financial market. Banks, building societies and credit providers embraced this new product with enthusiasm, realising quickly that it brought fast, easy profits and could be sold on to just about anyone. PPI brought in floods of money, but it eventually led to one of the biggest scandals to ever hit the sector.

It was so easy to persuade their trusting customers that a policy was in their interests, and should therefore be included in their loans, mortgages, credit cards and store cards. The commissions the lenders received were huge, so maintaining a sense of trust from the consumer soon became a thing of the past. In a significant proportion of cases, the PPI itself was of little or no use.

If you lived in the Shetlands at any time from the late 1980s onwards and you took out any form of financial agreement, there is a good chance that you had PPI as well. Don’t worry if you weren’t aware of it, because it was often the case that it was sold without the customer even being made aware of it. This is a good indicator of just how keen the banks were to pass on the product in return for a profit.

Here at Beat the Banks, we have been handling PPI compensation cases for many years now, and we’ve become anaesthetised to the initial shock that comes when anyone realises just how underhand these previously trusted institutions acted in a bid to increase revenue. When the authorities stepped in to stop it, it soon became apparent to the general public as well.

Our team of friendly, knowledgeable specialists is ready right now to help you find out whether you’ve been a victim of the scandal. We’re available on 0800 193 1234 for a chat about your situation, and what can be done about it. Don’t worry, the process is so easy and will only take a few minutes. We can take things from there on your behalf.

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.”

Only positives have come from the experience.”

  • 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!”
