It's nice to see that a company has held its hands up for once, admitted wrongdoing and offered a freebie.

Now when do I get my high street vouchers from all these PPI companies???

They didn't - it says they were caught & fined - which isn't the same thing.

Nice.

3,650 victims get a ten quid shopping voucher, total cost probably less than 30,000 to Npower because they're bought in bulk at less than face value.

Ofcom gets 60,000.

I wonder if they can pay the fine in shopping vouchers?

"Npower exceeded its 3% daily limit."

Sounds long odds on my silent calls.

sounds like they will be rising prices again
Don't put your trust into an Experian score - it is not a number any bank will ever use & it is generally a waste of money to purchase it. They are also selling you insurance you dont need.
