    Claims Guys - not received payment

    Claims Guys - not received payment 13th Apr 18 at 4:56 PM

    Advice for a friend - went via the Claims Guys to claim PPI compensation - letter received 4m later asking for their cut of payment as the claim was successful. Happy to pay but we haven't received any money! Rang Claims Guys who say it's our issue and we need to chase the bank. Of we are paying a third of money, why should it be our responsibility - surely that's what their commission is for? It appears the bank sent a cheque to the old address - although the claim was with our updated address.

    Any advice?

    Tell them to wait until you have the cash, not the fault of your friend the bank sent it to the wrong place

    I informed them of above, and the have responded stating they cannot deal with bank due to data protection - odd considering they were acting for me with them!
