    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?

    Does that mean t-mobile owe me £10?

    I actioned a 3 strikes and out (I stopped answering at 4!) rule on them.

    "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.
