Smile PPI reclaim - But I dont know the account numbers

Hi

I am in the process of trying to Reclaim PPI from my store cards and an old loan from welcome finance.

The old loan from welcome finance I have no paper work on any more. Shall I ring them get the account numbers and then do a SAR request ? so I know how much i should ruffly recieve back ?

If I ring them and they cant find my account number what is my next option ??

Also when doing all PPI reclaims should I do a SAR first so I can check how much i should recieve back ?

Thanks

Hello Miss C

If you have any old statements hanging around then the account numbers will be shown on them.
How long ago did you take this out? Year?

And in regards of the loan, if you still bank with the same bank where the payments used to come out of, and do online banking, you may be able to trace the account number that way for this one, this should allow you to go back about 7 maybe 8 years online, the account number of the loan is normally shown next to the monthly repayment.

However, a SAR will help, but as long as you can get hold of the account numbers you can still continue to make a reclaim.

For a cheaper option, you can write to them for both store card and loan ppi, it costs £1 cheque or postal order for the request of the agreement.
So a simple letter to request them to send you a copy of the agreement by 12 days, and enclose £1 for each one.

For the SAR as you may know its £10 cheque or postal order, if you had a few loans with the same company, one SAR is sufficient.

If you cannot come across any of the account numbers - give them as many details as possible.
They should hold your data for at least the last 6 years.

Hope this is of some help, there is a SAR template if required below link, tweak to your requirements if you want to.

I don't think there is one for the request of the agreement.

But to make a reclaim follow the link below and ask for further help if required, good luck.

Welcome have been declared in default and the fscs http://www.fscs.org.uk/contact-us/
are dealing with ppi claims from january 2005. if your loan was pre that date, then if you wish to make a claim you will have to go for the insurer. Welcome should tell you the name of the insurer. Look here for reasons for mis sell http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/rec...ance#checklist

Yes possibly.
I do know they were governed by GISC prior to the FSA but can't remember from what year, but yes its a possibility on that one.
The FSCS are only taking on claims as from Jan 2005 so on that older one best to contact the FOS and see what they suggest.

Hi Miss C

And good one, by just having the account numbers is a great help and as long as you know you were paying for ppi and mis sold the product then you can continue to make a reclaim.

I would first contact the FSCS (The financial compensation scheme) because Welcome Finance have been defaulted just recently claims can be made through them, but ring them first and see what they say, they may say you can still write to Welcome finance first.

http://www.fscs.org.uk/contact-us/

http://www.fscs.org.uk/news/2011/mar...cial-7pghpepm/

The forms are slightly different to what I remember with the FSCS.

Let us know how you get on cheers.
Good luck.

Well no they can't - hence why it was mis-sold and the OP is looking to reclaim it.

Your very welcome Miss C

It should have been optional, and they should not have pressurised you with taking out the ppi.
Good luck.

ok so I looked at Fscs website. It said I could ring welcome to ask them to send me an application. when I did they said only PPI on one account. I am sure thats not true so do I write to them and request a statement of transactions ? and send a £1 cheque ?
sorry for all the questions but I am new to all this!!

Thanks

Hi there

You could request a SAR (Subject access request) where they must send all the data they hold on all account held with them over the last 6 years, but this one costs £10 cheque or postal order.

There is a SAR template letter on link below, I would add all the account numbers you have on that SAR letter request so they will send all the details on all then, so only enclose the one cheque of £10.
You can tweak the SAR letter to your requirements if you want to
http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/....php?t=1475553

I assume any charges of statements should be enclosed on the SAR.

The one where you pay the £1 for is just for requesting for a copy of the agreement, but it will not disclose any charges on that one.
