  • Yes Car Credit PPI reclaim

    Hello everyone!

    So I am going to start the process of making a claim against Yes Car Credit (now being administered by DFA) for mis-sold PPI and possibly other insurances. I think it's about 9 years since I first took out the finance, with my mum acting as guarantor. She happened across the original paperwork today and noticed I have a claim so is posting it to me.

    I was a student not working at the time as far as we can both remember and we did question the insurance at the time but we were made to take it out.

    First question, do I send the PPI questionnaire to DFA or the underwriters? A bit of Googling tells me people have had issues with going round in circles but others who have had success, I want to try and make this as painless as possible and get to a successful conclusion!

    Re: Yes Car Credit PPI reclaim

    Hi VF, and welcome to you. With PPI, it is generally the rule that you lodge the claim initially with the firm that originally sold the PPI. This then gives them the opportunity to investigate what is at this stage an allegation of mis-selling. As Yes are now administered by DFA, then I believe DFA is who you send your claim to - as they have effectively taken responsibility for Yes's affairs.

    Yeah, these firms often try and play 'ping-pong' with claims, so be ready for that. Hopefully, we'll be able to put a stop to it, if they do !!!

      Hi and welcome

      That is correct what Bilk have said, the business who set up and sold the finance, are the one's responsible and therefore you pursue them, so if YES were still around now, you would be dealing with them, but as it appears that they are now administered by another business called DFA, then I assume they had also taken over all liabilities.

      Always start this way and go from there.

      Let us know how you get on, remember to keep a copy of the complaint questionnaire as well in case you need to refer back to it at some stage, and if you require further help, then just give us a yell.

      The best of luck.

          Sorry, got my letters the wrong way round, should say DAF which is Direct Auto Finance, part of the Provident group. By all accounts when you send off an SAR request or refund request it comes back from DAF.

          This is one link of many that can be found with a quick Google: http://www.legalbeagles.info/forums/...t-Auto-Finance

              Quick question.

              This loan was taken out in both mine and my mums name, will I need signed documentation from her to have my SAR request fulfilled? She lives in another part of the country so will involve a bit of logistical work but that's fine, it actually strengthens my case as she has had ongoing chronic illness her whole life making most PPI policies completely redundant!

              Just wanted to check before I send off my letter and 10. However, on the basis of her medical history, should I just go ahead and make my claim straight away and save myself the 10 for the moment?

                Hi there

                To what I know of you can request a SAR in your own right, and they will just provide the information with deleting info of your mum's.

                You can of course continue to make a reclaim if you want to.

                What I do, is send the complaint and request for the SAR at the same time, just in case I require any information to help with my case if I was to send further information.
                Although the complaints section is normally separate to the data protection unit.

                Do you require the SAR template letter, or do you already have one?

                    I'm less that an hour old on the forum and today I got a letter from RBS rejecting a claim I never sent. What happened was my PPi was declined by DAFS. I forwarded it to the Financial Ombudsman, whose investigations came up with RBS. However RBS are denying any dealings with YesCar Credit or DAFS. I got my original documents and all the information provided by DAFS after doing a SAR. My request from all forumites on this matter is any information on who were the financers of Provident Finance.

                        Re: Yes Car Credit PPI reclaim

                        I got my SAR documents through today and it refreshed my memory as to all the dodgy dealings we had with them at the time! I was working part-time but it was 25 hours per week which did qualify me for the PPI. However, I definitely went to college that year full-time and knew this was to be the case at the time. We did also try to cancel the policy in the cooling off period but were unable to and were sold the insurance as a condition of the loan so I'm still going to go ahead with my claim, it may just not be as straight forward as I had hoped

                        Let round one commence!
