    Budget (Avon) DD on bank statement

    Budget (Avon) DD on bank statement 11th Feb 13 at 11:40 AM
    Checking my bank statement recently I noticed a DD for 3.99 to Budget (Avon). In fact I had two lots coming off my account for the past 6 months.

    Not sure what it was for did some interweb research and discovered they are linked to Budget Car insurance policies I took out last February.

    Apparently on the Budget website there is a pre populated tick box which has to be unticked otherwise you are sold a personal injury insurance policy. It's not something I would have wanted so don't know how I missed it. The insurance is free for 6 months then the payments start.

    Anyway, I phoned Avon Insurance this morning on 01789 415 050 and a very nice lady cancelled the policies no problem, then passed me through to Budget who maintained it was all legit and my fault for missing the tick box, but they were happy to refund the monies already paid.

    So all is well, but what a scam eh ?
