Can I Get Bank Charges Back

Even though at the time it went unnoticed, payment protection policies were mis-sold in record numbers. Many people were unaware of the exclusivity of payment protection policies. It was estimated that only about 15% of protection insurance policy holders actually met the requirements for eligibility, leaving 85% to pay for a policy in which they can never benefit from. The Financial Ombudsman Service has gotten to see their fair share of the trade with the mis sold PPI scam that has caused massive amounts of complaints to be filed.

What Went Wrong

Payment protection at its roots was designed with the intentions providing the consumer with a tangible service. The service it intended to provide was make payments for its policyholders on financial services in case the policyholder was unable to pay due to unemployment or ill health. The problem started to arise when lenders mis sold payment protection to its borrowers. Mis-selling occurs when a service or goods are sold to someone who is unable to make good use of them. These types of sales have caused problems with many financial institutions, especially banks prompting many policyholders to wonder can I get bank charges back.
