    First National 9th May 18 at 9:36 PM
    Hi,
    Any idea who first National are/were? and what type of finance they would have provided?

    Had 2 loans with them from 2002 and 2005 - looking to establish if PPI was associated with them.

    regards

    They offered car finance and I seem to recall them being part of Abbey National. I think they closed in around 2002/2003.

    ah ok. Did anyone take on their accounts? or would you know who to contact to identify if PPI was attached to those loans?

    Which is a few years prior to regulation, of course. Any PPI complaint is therefore unlikely to succeed, not least because there is no one left to complain to.

    I think they sold via brokers. Such as car dealers etc. So, the pre-regulation thing will be a killer if that is the case.

    Yes, Abbey bought First National in 1995 and then sold it to GE Money in 2003.
