    Catalogue PPI 26th Sep 16 at 1:27 PM
    I used to run Grattans, Freemans, Great Universal and Littlewoods Catalogues. I cannot remember reference numbers. Would i still be able to use letter templates without this information to claim ppi? Does anybody know the address as to where i should send the claim for any of the above named?

    Hi. I was able to make a complaint to Littlewoods (Shop Direct Group) recently. It was only around £300 I was awarded. They are very helpful if you need help to locate the account number.

    They would also deal with your complaint about Kays and Great Universal as Littlewoods took over these brands. If the accounts are really old they will explain that they are also acting of behalf of Aviva (the underwriter of the policy)

    Freemans and Grattan are both part of Otto UK based in Bradford.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for that information, did you just ring catalogues to find out if you had ppi or did you use letter templates on this site to claim?

    HI

    I used to run a studio cards catalogue for the girl's at work. Anyone out there know if this catalogue is classed in the same group of Freeman's /Gratton/Littlewood regarding the PPI claim. Any info greatly appreciated.

    While doing some reclaiming today following on from the various links thru the Resolver site, I tried looking up Freemans but all I found was some info on here (dating back to a thread in 2014) that said if it was pre-2005 they weren't regulated then so a claim can be dismissed. Not sure whether that helps but my account with them was late 80s/early 90s so haven't bothered pursuing although I'm damn sure there'll be PPI or its equivalent on it

    No catalogues were regulated prior to 2005.

    If Catalogues weren't regulated prior to 2005 but I had an account with Studio Cards 1997-2007 would they not be liable for the 2 years after the regulations began? I have statements that show I paid PPI but have been told by Express Gifts my PPI complaint won't be upheld because my account started prior to 2005.

    Made a PPI Claim to Shop Direct via Resolver Tool, claim was upheld and they sent me a letter in May 2017 to say this and that I'd receive the calculation letter within 28 days. Still not had this or any money despite continuous phone calls over the summer. Not sure what to do!

    No, it's the date of the actual sale which is key in any mis-selling complaint.

    Contact the Ombudsman. Four months is far too long to wait.

    At least you can take comfort that your redress is still accruing interest while it remains unpaid.

    On the plus side, your interest is going up all the time and the £100 goodwill gesture certainly goes a long way to make up for the delay.
