    2. Let us know the following:
    Why you decided to use a claims handler .... to be honest I never thought about trying to complain myself and with all the recent press I'd heard thought this the best route, I honestly thought a claims handler would have more success than going alone, I went with 121 after quickly realising there 15% + vat rate was much cheaper than a lot of other claim handlers. I stumbled across this site after I'd signed all the paperwork with 121 giving them the go ahead to complain on my behalf :mad:

    Were you happy with the service .. in all fairness yes I was, they kept my updated throughout and were always more than helpful and friendly when I spoke to them, I didn't have any issue what so ever :D

    How much were you claiming and how much did you get to keep...£1075.87 I got to keep £882.21 after 121 took of there payment....

    Anything else you want to tell us.. I'm just annoyed after signing the paperwork for the claims handler I realised they couldn't really have done anything more than I could have done myself.. I now have complains in with Tescos Egg/Barcalycard and cap one with the help of this site :D I cannot stress enough how fab and helpful this site is and without your help I more than likely would have used the same claims handler to deal with my other ppi complaints, thankfully I thought I'll see how we get on with the smaller one before I think about complaining about the others :T

    Used a CMC and was very happy, did exactly what they said they would and I wasn't interested in doing it myself.

    I didn't loose any, I got money I wouldn't have otherwise got.

    Why am I on the wrong side ? I looked on here and didn't like the idea of doing it myself, found it a lot easier just to pay someone to do it for me, just like with a lot of things in life.

    No, you got some money and gave the rest to someone who did little more than put a stamp on your complaint form.

    That's life i'm afraid........paid £22 for a bottle of wine last night in a restaurant that probably cost £4 and all the waiter did was pop the cork.

    You've just made my "ignore list".
    Carry on promoting CMCs, I won't be reading.

    I'm not promoting them, just wonder why so many people are against them because Mr Lewis says so, yet at least they don't hide their incomes !
