I had a call today form Litchfield about claiming ppi
in the past ive declined as I only paid ppi on a load over 18 years ago.
But the person I spoke to said they can claim back as far as my 18th birthday im 48 ???
we had a good conversation regarding my loan and credit card history and I have received an email with there conditions etc followed by another call almost straight away which I didn't answer as I want to do some research first .
they are asking for £349 up front and want 15% of any money recovered
Has anyone had dealing with Litchfield or and good advice

    The complaint process is simple and free, why would you want to pay anyone to use it?

    I'd be even more wary that the company want hundreds of pounds in upfront payment.

    Don't fall for it, ]


    They will say 'we will try' they will take your up front fee.


    They will try, they will probably fail and they will be running for the hills with your up front fee.


    If you think you were miss sold and have evidence to prove it, do it yourself.
    make the most of it, we are only here for the weekend.
    and we will never, ever return.

    Did you have PPI back then?

    ahh the up front fee. Now it makes sense.
  • I'am using Litchfield Price for PPI claims & they currently have 20 claims on behalf one has come back as having no PPI. But today I got cheque for £3000.00

    So I really can say that they are not a scam company :D

    Litchfield price said they needed a security deposit today of £495 from me my argument was how can I be sure my money would be safe? Surely as a legit company the phone call was recorded and by law id have to repay them something once my claim has been processed. Why should I be out of pocket I have nothing from them to prove by law I would get my money back. I'm a bit worried as I stupidly gave them my card details previous to finding out they actually wanted money out of me up front as was told they put 1p on my card then take it off to do the checks which turned out they didn't do any check after I refused to pay up front cost. Like the person above I had 2 phones calls and spoke to two different individuals. Anyone know of any legit ppi claim companies without paying upfront costs or large payments to do search? Oh they were going to charge me 25 % of what ever they recovered from my claim. Strange we are being charged different upfront costs and percentages on our possible claims...
  • As with others i was quoted £495 to proceed. It's odd they told me they don't chase anything under 4grand! I'm quite prudent and I gave them a closed account. I don't know if they did security checks for address I'm not on the electoral register for. Nor do I see the 1p deposit, they claim to do on a unused account. I didn't get to read the email as it flashes up another page, before you can read it. Within seconds i had a call about insufficient funds! I said on legal advice I'm with holding money from that account, till I have a guaranteed letter of proof regarding amount that is payable to me. I'm waiting for them to call again. It's a case of if it's to good to be true. Anyone had recent success with this company and willing to show proof?
  • Oops u just signed up with them- however, can assume my credit card is protected? They seemed to know a lot- they told me the date I opened my credit card!
