Reclaim Mis Sold PPI Against Burtons
A famous name that has enjoyed a strong profile on Britain’s high streets for many years, Burton’s are now part of the Arcadia Group. If you have ever held a store card with Burton’s, you may well have had a PPI policy that you didn’t need, and in some instances, you may not have even been informed of its existence. One call to our specialists on 0800 193 1234 could be all you need to find out more.
In the past, Burton’s store cards were operated by GE Capital Bank. These cards were sold in their thousands to the UK public, and consumers were all too eager to use them for a more convenient way of shopping. The sad fact that we all know now is that expensive PPI payments were often included in the issue of a card, and many people ended up paying a small fortune for a financial add-on that was sometimes of little or no use at all.
For Burton’s, the aggressive selling of PPI brought in huge profits, so staff members were encouraged to add PPI to the issue of as many store cards as possible. PPI was a product that was easy to sell, and the consumer would often see it as a good thing because it brought the peace of mind that came with knowing they were covered in the event of any unforeseen difficulties.
Most of the time, sadly, they were either woefully under-covered or not covered at all. The payments they kept making to pay for their PPI continued to grow, and the likes of Burton’s and many others continued to profit. Sales teams were heavily incentivised if they sold policies, and because the product was supposedly suitable for just about any consumer there was no need for any expensive training courses for staff members.
Time is running out on PPI claims
With the PPI deadline fast approaching, now is the time to start asking questions about whether or not you had store cards from Burton’s in the past. Here at Beat the Banks, we believe in seeking justice with as much determination as that shown by financial companies when originally pushing PPI on the general public. A great many wrongs occurred during the lending boom of the late 1980s and into the 1990s, and we intend to make sure the financial sector isn’t allowed to simply get away with what they did.
The Arcadia Group owns a long list of major high street players, many of which were at the forefront of the lending boom. Names such as Dorothy Perkins, Topshop and Miss Selfridge have all been the subject of recent PPI claims and investigations, many of which have resulted in the award of substantial financial compensation sums. Even if you’re not sure if you ever had such a store card, it’s worth at least asking the question.
We at Beat the Banks pride ourselves on going the extra mile on behalf of our clients. Too many Claims Management Companies make only the scantest efforts to research the claims of their clients, but we always delve as deeply as we possibly can. This can often involve searching through stacks of paperwork that are several inches high.
Paying month after month, year after year for a product that you should never have been sold in the first place was wholly and utterly wrong. The PPI scandal has uncovered so many stories of wrongdoing, so if you are thinking about making a claim you want to be sure that your chosen specialists are going to be willing to leave no stone unturned. Frankly, you deserve to be treated with the thoroughness and the attention for detail that the banks didn’t give you in the first place.
If you think you may have had a store card with Burton’s that had a PPI policy attached, we’d like to speak with you as soon as possible. Our friendly team of specialists, people who between them have a wealth of experience in the banking industry, can help you find the justice you deserve.
