    Does anyone have the full list of companies fined for miss selling ppi as on the FSA website today it states more than 24.
    Also I tried to open the FSA's new ploicy document from last week but the document is empty. All other documents open. Is anyone else having difficulty as I want to quote excerpts in my letters now

    Hiya

    On Martins loan ppi guidance page, there is a list shown on there, not sure if its up to date though, check through though just in case.
    http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/rec...loan-insurance

    And below, I have copied and pasted from Martin's page of fined companies....

    Has your provider already been fined for PPI problems?



    Many major providers, including Alliance & Leicester, Egg and Capital One have been fined for not treating customers fairly, and more are expected soon. If yours has, its very likely youve a case.
    Does this apply to you? Expand the full list of Fined providers.


    The regulator, the FSA, has said it wants to see better practice and has fined several companies for failing to treat their customers fairly. More fines, which could be for up to 1 million, are expected.
    Whos been fined so far?
    • Swinton: Fined 770,000 in Oct 2009 for serious failings and an unacceptable level of non-compliant sales (on cover for home or motor insurance) between Dec 06 and Mar 08 (when it stopped selling PPI). Swinton has said it will contact over 350,000 customers who paid for the PPI and offer a full refund, as well as pro-actively review previously rejected claims. More Info: Swinton.
    • Egg: Fined 721,000 in Dec 2008 for serious failings in its credit card PPI sales by telephone between Jan 05 and Dec 07. Egg has said it will be writing to customers, asking them to call a dedicated number if they are concerned they were missold PPI, and will compensate where appropriate. More Info: Egg.
    • Alliance and Leicester (A&L): Fined 7 million, the highest fine to date by far, in Oct 2008 for serious failings in its PPI telephone sales between Jan 05 and Dec 07. A&L has said it will be writing to all the customers concerned. More Info: Alliance and Leicester.
    • 5 motor retailers: GK Group Limited, George White Motors Limited, Ringways Garages (Leeds) Limited, Ringways Garages (Doncaster) Limited and Parks of Hamilton (Holdings) Limited were fined a total of more than 175,000 in Aug 2008 for exposing a total of 2,175 customers to the risk of being sold unsuitable PPI policies.

    • Liverpool Victoria: Fined 840,000 in July 2008 for serious failings in the sale of single premium PPI on telephone loans sold betweeen 14 January 2005 and 8 August 2007. It has also agreed to compensate customers if their policy is not appropriate and to refund interest automatically. More Info: Liverpool Victoria.
    • Land of Leather Ltd: Fined 210,000 in May 2008 for allowing its sales force to sell PPI, between May 2006 and Feb 2007, without effective monitoring or training. More Info: Land of Leather.

    • Regency Mortgage Corporation: Fined 56,000 in December 2006 for not collecting sufficient information during a PPI sale to ensure its recommendations met customers' demands and needs. More info: Regency Mortgage Corporation
    • Loans.co.uk: Fined 455,000 in October 2006 for not having appropriate systems and controls to minimise the risk of unsuitable sales. More info: Loans.co.uk
    Are you a customer of one of these firms?
    If youre a customer of one of these companies it may have already been in touch with you, but if it hasnt you should definitely send a reclaim letter asking for justification that your policy was sold with your best interests in mind.
    Other companies are likely to be fined too
    The FSA is likely to announce further fines, this is important as it hugely strengthens your reclaim, so ensure you get the free weekly email to keep updated on this.
