    Posted on behalf of new user


    Wondering if you can help me please

    Please see attached correspondence form Bank Smart, who i have googled reviews on and got your email.
    They have sent my father this letter demanding payment of over £1000 for work done on a PPI claim
    My father never got any money from a PPI claim from them and has not received any letter in which they are saying they have posted.
    My father is a pensioner and is very upset with regards to this letter received
    As you can see in May 2017 he id pay £317 odd to this company which i did not know about , he said he just wanted it to go away as he kept getting letters from them at the time. When i logged on with the log on details supplied in the letter, it say case closed......
    I have emailed them my concerns with the letter sent and disputed why my father has to pay this money for nothing, its robbery !!!
    Just wanting some help and advice where i can take this too

    Any help and guidance is so much appreciated

    Many thanks

    I think the first thing your dad needs to do is to speak to the Halifax PPI team and ask them whether there has been a claim and what happened with it. If they can't tell him then he could send a subject access request to Halifax for documentation relating to his mortgage.

    They seem to be assuming they are due some commission rather than invoicing for breach of contract or cancellation… Do you know if the £300 he previously paid was for the same Halifax mortgage account?

    You should probably also get your dad to send a subject access request to bank smart to find out exactly what they've been doing and what authorisation was given to them by your dad to begin with… And also what other claims might be in the system and likely to poke their heads up later.

    Subject access request letter can be found here for example…https://legalbeagles.info/library/gu...ccess-request/

    Now that the PPI deadline for claiming has passed we are going to see a lot of dubious bills coming out from various claims management companies as they try to retain some form of cash flow.

    INFORMATION

    Claims Management Compare CMCs
    Before using a claims management company make sure you DO YOUR RESEARCH. Firms can charge up to 50% of any refund you might be due.


    LegalBeagles helps you compare CMCs on price and ratings of claims management companies that offer to help reclaim PPI (Payment Protection Insurance) or other financial products.


    If you have a problem with a Claims Management Company you can post on our consumer forum for help in the first instance.


    To make a formal complaint you should complain to the CMC in the first instance, and if there has been no resolution within 8 weeks you can take your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman.
