    Yes. The money saving expert site provides all the templates.

  • Got a 5 figure pay out 4 years ago.

    Didn't use any websites or model letters. Phoned Barclays and told them I wanted my money back plus a compensation settlement. They sent me a questionaire, I completed it. 6 weeks later they paid me over £14k.
  • I have always believed that I never had PPI on anything, but thinking about it further I know I had a Marks & Spencer storecard (not a credit card) many, many years ago where I did tick the payment protection box (a mate had been turned down and the only difference between the two applications was that box tick).

    Although not a credit card, it would have been backed by M&S Financial Services. Anyone know if those are covered by this legislation? I had always assumed not.
  • I'm currently doing this and have got just under £5k back with very little effort. I just googled each of the companies that I remembered having loans or credit cards with, followed the procedures on their website, filled out a few forms and Robert's your fathers brother. Do not use any of the claims companies, it is incredibly easy to do it yourself.

    PS - I had no paperwork for any of the cards or loans and that didn't matter at all.
  • Just used the Resolver site, that basically takes you through all the usual questions etc and then sends the email for you.

    Easy. Hopefully I get something out of this.
