    A mortgage PPI 26th Nov 14 at 4:41 PM
    I made a complaint regarding a PPI for a mortgage four weeks ago. This is something I finally got round to doing after months of putting it off. I chased the broker a couple of weeks ago and he said he was still looking into it as he has to review the file and some call recordings so I just chased it again as I want this money for Christmas and he told me to expect a response within eight weeks of my complaint but in his view he said he will probably be rejecting my claim and he will fully explain why in this final letter I told him I have every right to complain and I will take it much further and mentoned the FOS but he said he is doing nothing wrong and put the phone down on me do I just go to the FOS and get them on it as he is obviously using delaying tactics

    Most broker complaints get rejected. That is to be expected as brokers generally have better audit trails and mostly provide the decent types of PPI. Not the types of PPI with problems.

    You were told on this thread that your complaint didnt seem to have much going for it. It turned out that was the case.

    Saying its an old boys network is daft. Most FOS staff do not hold financial services qualifications and have never done the role and have never met the people involved. Brokers/advisers account for under 1% of PPI complaints and most of them are rejected. PPI is not generally viewed as a broker/adviser issue.

    but now going for a Pelvin about it and will let everyone know
    Dont hold your breath on that. Most broker arranged PPI is well below the tipping point. Typically around 27%.
