Lloyd’s PPI claim

hi, looking for advice please. Out of the blue I have received a cheque from Lloyd’s bank for miss sold PPI which was very nice. Now a week later I am being harassed by a company wanting £900 from me. I have never heard of the company and I certainly never asked them to act on my behalf. 
Surely I would have had to sign paperwork etc if I wanted them to act on my behalf. I dealt with a company about 9 years ago who got PPI BACK FROM HSBC, so I do know how it works. 
I feel a bit taken aback that this company I’ve never heard of was able to look into my finances in this way and now are demanding money from me. The company is called claimhunters. 
Can anyone shed some light on this for me please?

    Ask them for evidence of your contract with them.

    Did you fill in a ‘free PPI check’ advert on Facebook/instagram/twitter? That’s often how they get you. What’s the name of the company?

    (my money’s on it being either Ingenious Legal or Allay)
    helpful tips
    it's spelt d-e-f-i-n-i-t-e-l-y
    there - 'in or at that place'
    their - 'owned by them'
    they're - 'they are'
    it's bought not brought (i just bought my chicken a suit from that new shop for £6.34)
