Although major banks, such as Lloyds Bank, would like to see the mis-sold Payment Protection Insurance compensation claims go away, it is still making major headlines across the UK.
And the headlines are not good news for borrowers.
One recent article in The Guardian said that banks have allegedly underpaid PPI compensation claims by some £1 billion. Topping the list of the banks being charged with underpayment is Lloyds Bank.
This illustrates how important it is to have your Lloyds Bank PPI claimed handled by an expert who knows all the tactics the bank uses to avoid payment or underpay claims. We have been winning claims of the maximum amount due to Lloyds Bank customers for many years and have a proven track record you can count on to get you the money that you are owed from mis-selling PPI.
Wide range of loans
Further, we know that as one of UK's biggest lenders—with mortgages, credit cards, personal and business loans—that the amount of money at stake with Lloyds Bank is very big, pushing the stakes even higher. This is reflected in the fact that Lloyds Bank has also been charged with using a "loophole" to reduce PPI compensation payouts.
Don't allow yourself to get entangled in this "loophole" or other attempts Lloyds Bank might make to reduce your compensation award.
These recent revelations in some way reflect the bank practices that created the mis-selling scandal that has plagued the UK banking industry for some time now. It was when banks, such as Lloyds Bank, misinformed, failed to inform or committed fraud when prospective borrowers were applying for loans or credit cards that created the situation.
How PPI was mis-sold
It is impossible in this short space to outline all the ways Lloyds Bank may have mis-sold PPI to you, but let's quickly paint a picture so you can get an idea of how customers have been treated.
PPI can be a good financial product in some situations, but not every borrower is in those situations. Some borrowers, such as the self-employed or individuals with some medical conditions should not be sold PPI. You see, PPI is designed to take over payments on a loan in some instances when the borrower is unable to make payments. However, it includes exceptions for some self-employed individuals and when borrowers have some pre-existing conditions, among others.
However, we have seen many cases of mis-selling PPI that are even more troubling. As we have discussed cases with various Lloyds Bank customers, we have uncovered situations where the borrowers were unaware that they were paying for PPI or accepted the PPI only under pressure. These practices were, unfortunately, common place with many lenders. Sometimes, the checkbox for PPI would be "pre-checked" when borrowers were filling out their application forms.
