    Hello,

    Many year ago I had finance from CICA and am pretty sure I paid a PPI portion on my repayments. I have searched here and elsewhere but cannot find any reference to them in regards to PPI.

    Am I misremembering or does anyone have any ideas or information on this?

    CICA does not appear on the resolver list or Martin's lists that I can find.

    Thanks

    Do you have any documentation pertaining to this alleged PPI?

    If not, it's doubtful you'll be able to advance any complaint.

    How long ago is "many" years?

    Are you sure they did the finance? They are an insurance company (one that typically retails non-mainstream plans in the UK).

    I seem to remember they specialised in health and accident insurance, sold direct and that construction workers were particularly targeted. Think the sales guys all drove Ford XR2i 's or similar and wore white socks and heavy gold ID bracelets. Though that may have been General Portfolio

    Interestingly, the FSA imposed a fine of £2.8million on CICA in 2011. No mention of them having retailed PPI, though.
