Your Capital One PPI Claim Could be Worth £1000's
The Claims Standards Council say "Certain lenders have made claiming difficult. Further, there is no verification that offers of redress are either fair or correct, unless consumers use the service of knowledgeable companies, whether claims management companies or solicitors, to verify the figures.
Frequently, offers are lower than consumers are entitled to and it is often only through the intervention of claims management companies or solicitors, that consumers ultimately receive amended offers, reflecting the true redress they are entitled to."

What is the Official Stance on Capital One PPI Claims?
The Financial Services Authority has fined Capital One Bank (Europe) Plc (Capital One) £175,000 for failing to have adequate systems and controls for selling Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) insurance and for failing to treat its customers fairly.
From January 2005 to April 2006, Capital One failed to ensure that 50,000 customers received important information about the PPI policy including all exclusions although they did receive a policy summary. Affected customers were unable to check what they were covered for or if the PPI policy was right for them.
Capital One's main business is providing credit cards, loans, and savings accounts from its operations centre in Nottingham, East Midlands. It also sells PPI on a non-advised basis to its credit card and loan customers over the telephone, internet or during the card application process. The FSA's investigation focussed purely on credit card PPI sales. During 2005 Capital One sold approximately 335,000 UK credit card PPI policies.
Reports by the Office of Fair Trading (OFT), the Competition Commission and the Financial Services Authority (FSA) demonstrated that there had been substantial misselling in this area and actively encourage people to claim. They acknowledge it is difficult to find customers who have been mis-sold PPI where the customer does not actually know that they have the product.
According to the Banking Times "lenders selling PPI can expect to earn £1,200 from a policy that costs £20 to provide". Is it any wonder that PPI providers cut corners?
Additionally, the FSA say that "It's vital that firms deal with these complaints fairly. Unfortunately, we don't currently have confidence that firms are doing this. On average, firms have rejected around 60% of the PPI complaints they have received, but some firms have rejected nearly all."
This is Where we Come in
Have you taken out a credit card, store card or payment card in the last 10 years? If you have (or have had) a credit card that includes PPI with providers such as Capital One or in fact any other credit card provider, you could be owed thousands of pounds. - in most cases even if you've lost the paperwork. However, if your PPI insurance policy is more than 6 years old, you'll need to have all the documents.
In the majority of cases, what we are complaining about on your behalf is the fact that you shouldn't have been sold the PPI policy in the first place because it wasn't right for you. Your compensation could be a full refund of all your premiums plus interest. Your PPI claim will not have a negative impact on any existing loan or your ability to obtain a loan in the future.
