Exclamation Barclays Bank PPI on overdraft

Please help!

I have just found out that i have been paying 4.00 a month since 1998!
whilst i was on holiday in devon, Barclays bank Automatically placed an overdraft facility on my account without me knowing, also adding the PPI protection to it.

I never asked for this, nor signed any paperwork. in fact whilst on holiday i withdrew 100 and noticed 'DR' next to my balance, so i went into the branch and the cashier informed me that my account now has an overdraft facility, so i immediately put the money straight back into my account.

i don't have any paperwork, but i have informed my bank and they have logg this as a complaint. i just don't know how far i can claim back to or even how much over the years i have actually paid.

any advice, much appreciated!

I claimed all my overdraft ppi and now disputing the charges on my account for me going over my overdraft had I not paid for PPI I would still be within my limits. get the ppi claim form filled on or contact Barclays PPI to do it for you... 1600 payout for me but was wondering this is on their records 6 years But I've got statement going back before then.

Thanks for your reply, yes i contacted my bank direct (phone) and they are investigating it currently. should hear back soon, but i just wondered if there was a limit on how many years you can go back when claimng PPI?, (the account is still open as well)
