How to Claim Credit Card Charges Back

Even after almost six years of negative publicity, credit card companies are still mis selling payment protection insurance which has led to a great number of UK consumers asking how to claim credit card charges back. As a matter of fact, the Financial Services Authority, FSA, has noted in their most recent report that credit card companies are now amongst the worst offenders when it comes to mis selling payment protection insurance. Whilst other segments of the market are still in violation of PPI rules and regulations as well, the greater portion of those claiming back bank charges are individuals filing complaints against credit card companies.

PPI Premiums on Credit Cards

Before you can discover how to claim credit card charges back you actually need to understand how premiums are set up on credit cards. In recent years there has been a lot of press given to the way in which premiums are assessed on loans because they tend to be a huge one-time fee that is tacked on to the loan and amortized over the term. In such a case the actual insurance premium accrues interest as well, which means that the borrower is actually paying a significant amount of money for cover that is virtually nonexistent. Credit cards, on the other hand, are much more difficult to calculate how much money has been paid in over time since premiums are based on a percentage of the outstanding balance from month to month. How to claim credit card charges back then would entail knowing how much was paid each and every month on the outstanding balance carried forward.
