Payment Protection on Store Card
Consumers Discover Mis Sold Payment Protection on Store Card Bills
Unless you are in the habit of examining each and every bill that comes your way, you could be paying for payment protection on store card insurance. It seems as if we just expect those credit card bills to be high and often don't even bother to itemize the costs associated with the bill. Consumers have been discovering that they are paying for payment protection insurance that they never knew they had! Because of this, if they can prove that payment protection on store card cover was indeed tacked on without their knowledge, they are eligible for PPI refunds.
Consumers Reporting PPI Used as Grounds for Qualifying
Even if you were aware you had the cover it may still be regarded as mis-sold. If, for instance, you were told purchasing the cover would enhance your chances of qualifying for credit, you were given the wrong information and your policy may be regarded as mis-sold.
Claim Back Payment Protection on Store Card Cover
The good news is that if you have been mis sold PPI on store cards you can apply for a refund from the merchant.
Latest Data on PPI in the UK
The latest data suggests that as many as 20 million payment protection insurance policies are still active in the UK, many of which may have been mis sold.
