PPI claims are more commonplace than most people think. This is probably because the incidence of mis-sold policies is rather high. Inspections in the recent years have shown that millions of PPI policies have been wrongly sold to unsuspecting people over the years. Given the rather accelerated number of mis-sold PPI policies in the past few years it is entirely possible that you may have also been sold a PPI policy that you don’t really need or is not really valid for your case. If such is the case you might be eligible to make some PPI claims and apply for refunds or compensation of some sort. In case you have a currently active PPI policy or one that has only recently expired you can consider checking your details to see whether you’re eligible to make Payment Protection Insurance claims. The Financial Services Authority offers several remedial measures to correct any wrongs that may have occurred in this way.
The startling thing about the entire issue is that once PPI claims started coming to the fore, a rather worrisome fact came to light: even some of the most well-known and reputed names in the industry were responsible for mis-selling PPI policies to clients. In order to prevent such fallacies from occurring again in the future the Financial Services Authority introduced several regulations and guidelines to govern trade practices.

Here are some indicators that you have been wrongly sold a PPI policy and may have valid grounds to claim a refund-
