    I'm sorry but this is just blatant promotion of Resolver.

    "Sarah" would have received a £45, 000 refund if she had simply written complaint letters to the PPI providers. She didn't need a third party E-Mail template in order to do this...

    Even taking into account statutory interest, £45,000 in refunds suggests that Sarah had been in a great deal of debt.

    In Sarah's case, though, she managed to reclaim PPI without even knowing for sure that she'd had it – except in one case – and without being sure she'd been mis-sold.
    Is MSE advocating people making frivolous claims?

    Exactly.

    Does Resolver really need to be advertised in this manner? Seriously, how is this "news"?

    Sooner the deadline arrives so I stop receiving calls everyday the better.

    As they say you should include a cheque for £10 for enquiries on closed accounts then maybe they are getting a kickback from the banks?
