Mis Sold Payment Protection Credit Card
When you took out your credit card your credit card provider may have also sold
you some kind of insurance or protection. On paper, this cover sounds good as it
offers to cover repayments in the event you cannot work due to illness, accident
or involuntary unemployment. In reality, the cover does not always offer the
levels of protection the customer anticipates.
The cost of credit card payment protection usually sits between 79p and Â£1.50 per
Â£100 outstanding on your balance. This means if you owe Â£5,000 on your card you
may pay between Â£39.50 and Â£75.00 per month for the cover. Many make a payment protection claim
because their lender failed to explain the potentially high costs of the cover.
If you think you were mis sold payment protection credit card in this way then
you too have the right to make a claim.
The low levels of cover
Something in common with all types of payment protection insurance
is the high number of exemptions on these policies. Exemptions are circumstances
not covered by the policies and these can range from common medical ailments
such as back pain to whole groups of people, for example the self-employed. With
regards to mis-selling two significant issues can arise from this. Firstly, if
your lender sold you a policy you were ineligible to use this is a clear case of
mis sold payment protection credit card. Alternatively, if you were sold a
policy without the exemptions being clearly explained your policy may also be
considered to be mis-sold.
