PPI Mis-selling at a glance – ‘Have we all been taken for a ride’?

Where You Mis-Sold PPI?
You may have applied for a loan for a car or home improvement and the lender suggested or even insisted that you take out insurance cover to protect you against not being able to work due to ill health or an accident or to protect you against redundancy. PPI is commonly sold alongside many loans and is designed to help you if you are unable to pay your monthly repayments. It would pay out in order to meet the repayments on the loan, a very sensible move in these times.
However, The Financial Services Authority have recently admitted that there have been some serious failings in the way that PPI has been sold to consumers and this is where it all starts going wrong.
According to Citizens Advice Bureau you might be paying an additional 15% to 40% on top of your loan.
You may not even know or even actually need the cover or even worse, due to complexities in underwriting or exclusions you would not be eligible to claim when you need to.
You could be paying for a policy that you can’t rely upon?
