Is a claim possible?

I know I had PPI on my Barclaycard, an Egg card, an IF loan and probably on a couple of catalogues. However, it was in the 90’s and I have no paperwork at all. Is there any point in trying to claim or will the companies just claim they have no records?

    I doubt they will just claim they have no records.

    I think they will have no records.

    Hey Potty Petal.

    As someone who used to work PPI cases for barclaycard - it's worth a shot if you can provide as much info as possible. Even if you don't have any paperwork, do you have the account number? Sometimes even your full name and past addresses if you have any. They might not have any records, but sometimes they did. Plus it won't cost you anything (as long as you avoid a claims management company!!!)
