Hi all.

I used the template from this site and asked about credit cards I took out in 2003. Barclaycard admitted the mis-sold me 2 PPI premiums worth a total of £18.60 (Wish I'd kept the policy for longer now!).

They've offered me £118 which breaks down as shown below.

Do you think that is a reasonable offer? Of course I'm grateful for it, just wondered if you think I have grounds to expect more compensation.

Does anyone know how the statutory compensation levels work?

Any thoughts?



Refund £18.60
Refund of interest £2.55
Statutory compensation £71.06
Refund of fees incurred £40.00
Income tax deduction £14.21

    The redress calculation is defined. Its not a haggling contest. So, if its right, then it is reasonable. If it is wrong, then it is not.

    Broadly speaking, it is a return of premiums paid plus interest and any associated costs. As you paid £18.60 and are getting back £18.60 plus interest and associated costs, it seems to be correct.
