Have You Been Contacted By Rogue PPI Texts?

The chances are that you have.

After a study by consumer group, Which?, found that seventy per cent of people in Britain had been contacted by cold-calling companies encouraging people to try and claim for mis-sold PPI and personal injuries.

Now, Which? have called on Government officials to tackle the no-win no-fee firms who are making millions of unwanted calls and texts every year. Seven out of 10 members of the public who may not even be eligible for reclaiming mis-sold financial products are being contacted, sometimes several times a day, from companies claiming to be able to help.

The statistics have been gathered over just a three month period, showing the scale and severity of the nuisance contacts.

Due to the exceptionally high volume of calls being made there is rarely, if ever, a human on the other end of the phone. Instead, a simple automated voice message stating that there is money to be claimed back on your financial products – such as loans, mortgages and credit cards – greets you and encourages you to contact the company to start your claim.

Who Receives Calls and Texts?

Even people who have never taken out any financial products receive the calls, which is one of the main reasons Which? are determined to help clamp down on irritating cold calls.

Sometimes, these calls can be from bogus firms who claim to be able to help you with your financial claims, but instead scam you out of cash vouchers

Which? have suggested that the best way to not receive any messages is to never opt-in, or always opt-out of, third party marketing opportunities. You should also never respond to a cold call or text, as this will alert the firm that your phone is in use, and they will continually contact you regarding their service.

The PPI scandal has already cost the banks billions of pounds, and is forecast to cost the banking industry somewhere in the region of £25bn.

Here at Consumer Finance Claims we don’t see any benefit of cold calling people, so the impetus is on the client to contact us regarding any case they think they have for reclaiming mis-sold payment protection insurance.
