    La senza credit card help 10th Feb 17 at 7:33 PM
    Hi all
    Firstly apologies if this is in the wrong sub section.

    Can anyone tell me (for PPI purposes) if I had a store card with 'la senza' who owned that?!

    Thanks

    I can't find any mention online regarding the store card operation.

    The administrators in 2012 were KPMG.
    The administrators in 2014 were PwC.

    You may be able to see if they know who actually issued the card.

    I've tried looking through the web archive at their website over the years. I can't find any mention of a store card, are you sure you had one from them?

    You might want to have a flick through yourself -

    The only clue I can find is a reference here to being able to use 'Duet' - which was a store card payment scheme run by Creation:
    http://web.archive.org/web/20040810074945/http://www.lasenza.co.uk/shopping.asp

    Might be worth contacting Creation to confirm it.

    Edit -
    Found another reference to La Senza cards being on the 'Duet' Network:

    Hi there

    I also had a La Senza store card - must have been in the early 2000s. I just wondered if you had had any luck with claiming from them? I'd be super grateful for any information that you could share, thank you.
