Payment Protection Complaints

Since 2005, the number of complaints regarding payment protection insurance has risen enormously. The rise can partly be attributed to a Citizens Advice Bureau complaint made regarding the sale of the product. The complaint, logged in 2005, highlighted significant failures in the way the cover had sometimes been sold and drew the publics attention to the issue. The complaint was followed a year later by two separate investigations by the Office of Fair Trading and the Financial Services Authority.

Consumer Payment Protection Complaints

As a result of the Financial Service Authority investigation a number of high profile lenders were handed substantial fines. The fines drew a lot of media attention and raised public awareness leading to a dramatic rise in the number of payment protection insurance claims.

Types of mis-selling

As the volume of payment protection complaints increased patterns began to emerge in the types of mis-selling being reported by customers. Some common examples of the ways in which policies have been mis-sold are listed below.

- The customer was wrongly told the cover was compulsory.
- The customer was wrongly told taking the cover would improve their chances of being given credit.
- The customer was sold the cover even though they were unemployed, self-employed, retired or in full time education and, therefore, should not have been sold loss of employment cover.
- The customer was sold the cover even though their circumstances made them unsuitable, e.g, because they had a pre-existing medical condition or were aged over sixty-five.
