The mis-selling of payment protection insurance (PPI) was rife across all the major banks and lenders in the UK and, according to various financial commentators and consumer watchdogs, there will be very few people who have remained untouched by the mis-selling of PPI.
The PPI claims from Scottish customers show no sign of slowing with the Financial Services Ombudsman (FSO) suggesting that the current financial year 2013 to 2014, will be the biggest yet for PPI compensation payout.
Why did PPI become such a problem?
Back in the 1990s, the majority of customer advisors and sales staff working at banks and lenders were paid on a sliding scale of commission – the more they sold, the more their basic salary was inflated by commission payments.
Banks also quickly realised that the profit margin on the sale of PPI policies was healthy, bumping their profits to high levels, which pleased not only themselves but also their shareholders.
And so, out of profit and greed the whole scale mis-selling of PPI began to take shape.
So, was the PPI policy any good?
In all honesty, no it was not. It is possible to purchase a PPI type policy to cover all your debts which various financial groups suggest some customers would be wise to look at BUT that PPI is not priority insurance above and beyond home or care insurance etc.
PPI had a restrictive set of terms and conditions, with various exclusions which many customers were not made aware of. If they had been made aware of them – such as the exclusion of pre-existing medical conditions – they would not have taken out the policy.
Consumer groups have also pointed out that PPI represented significantly poor value for money. Some PPI policies were incredibly expensive for the cover they offered and, because the consumer had been led to believe that they could only but the bank’s own brand of PPI felt unable to shop around.
