Default Hidden PPI

Received phone call from We Fight Any Claim.com offering to claim missold ppi which they said had been hidden in higher interest and not made apparent to me at the outset of my mortgage.
Without me providing any specific information they estimated I could expect £5k plus
They wanted a substantial fee to begin the process.

Is there an alternative to this offer

Be wary. This is a near scam company. They are aggressively cold calling people telling them a load of porkies.

How do they know that?

(the answer to those two questions is that they dont. Its a random figure designed to get you to listen to them).

The first thing is, do you even have MPPI? The second thing is, were you mis-sold it?
