Default MINT PPI claim refused, should I pursue...

Hi All,

I made a claim for a PPI refund on my MINT credit card. I dont recall opting for it but they say I did. I sent the first letter from this site to them & they have just come back to me saying that the policy was provided on a "non advice" basis & that I signed the application as it was a postal application.

This results in them not upholding my claim.

DO you guys think it is worth pursuing

Thanks!

Hi there

If this was not the final decision, then write back to them, in the final decision they should let you know if your able to take your complaint to the financial ombudsman service (FOS).

Write back and tell them you do not agree with the decision they made on your complaint and despite them clarifying it was sold on a non-advised basis you still strongly believe you were mis sold the PPI and request they consider.

Keep at them until you receive the final decision, good luck and please keep us posted.

I would also look at the FOS website as there are some interesting cases on what the customer would understand at the point of sale. Nada if it was a postal application. Also, it is not sufficient for the Bank to issue T&Cs for PPI after the sale and expect the customer to understand it. Quote the FOS, I say!
