    Debenhams PPI rejected but others upheld

    Debenhams PPI rejected but others upheld 19th Mar 18 at 12:36 PM
    I had a PPI complaint for a Debenhams store card rejected by Santander last summer due to it being a non advised sale in 1999. The underwriter Axa also wrote to me confirming they agreed with the decision. Genworth redirected me back to Santander so I assumed this was all done and dusted.
    I missed referring it to the ombudsmen to to a family bereavement in December.
    Santander wrote to me regarding store cards for new look and Dorothy Perkins. I filled in the forms and they have upheld ccomplaibts for these!
    The store cards were all taken out within the same year so my circumstances were exactly the same for all 3. Full time job, good sick pay and redundancy etc.
    How can they reject one and not the other two? My question is can I challenge this or is it too late? This is especially annoying as the balance on the Debenhams one was much higher

    Thank you

    The result of one PPI complaint has no bearing on that of another.
    Your complaint was about the circumstances of the sale, not your personal circumstances at the time. The fact that all these policies were taken out in the same year is irrelevant.

    If you've missed the six month deadline for Ombudsman referral then you have nowhere left to take this, but the complaint would never be upheld simply on the basis that your other complaints were successful.

    Hi
    They did exactly the same to me, alleged I took out an insurance policy 3 months later over the phone; which I wouldnít have ; didnít need it; didnít want it. Took it to the ombudsman, however he felt that even if Iíd been given better information I would have taken it out.
    My personal opinion is it was falsely added to my account and there is no way I took it out, I have a good career with minimal to no risk of redundancy, full sick pay etc. Worked for 30yrs continuously.
    I also had money back on other accounts but the Debenhams one wouldíve been more. I will never shop with them again.
    I donít know if I can now claim using the Plevin ruling? As it would be a different claim ?

    Any Plevin refund will depend on whether your PPI was still active in recent years. If not, you won't be in scope for Plevin.

    Given this was falsely added to your account, why did you not complain at the time of the sale given it would be on every statement you received? It harms your credibility if you say this but didn't complain until many years after the event as it looks to an external (like the FOS) like a try it on - they can only judge based on the evidence they have.
