Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

I have had a windfall

Postby hickybank » March 1st, 2019, 7:13 pm

A few years ago I submitted a claim for PPI on the re-mortgage I took out on my former property.
At that time it was turned down, I appealed but no joy.
However, this week I received a letter from them informing me that due to a rule change I might now be eligable for a refund & to call them.
After answering the security questions I was put on hold while she checked my file.
The answer was yes due the the changes I was now eligable for a refund.
I nearly fell through the floor when she told me the ammount which was an incredible £2.02p
How would you invest this or would you just blow the lot

I hope you didn't do it through a firm that takes a percentage as a fee! :lol:

I'd see if I could put it towards the cost of an apple sapling then you might get a real windfall. :lol:

It will take some getting used to, I have booked an appiontment with a finacial advisor.
The Apple sapling might be an option I could finish up with an orchard, my own Cider farm. I live in the right area now

I had a PPI payout too; £4.03. Seems they couldn't find any evidence I'd paid more. I seem to remember paying a lot more, but they were adamant. I spurged the lot.

Happy spending!

After reading about em's windfall from mis-sold PPI, I decided to investigate … I did use the services of one of those agencies; my thinking was I wouldn't have a clue where to start and so therefore never would. I was amazed that I ended up with about £3000 … I always refused PPI when it was offered, but if you ever had a store card, you were probably charged it without knowing. These were originally with GE Finance, but Santander bought them out. The largest rebate was from my own bank after having a smallish loan with them. :shock: :rolleyes:

My friend got over £20,000 :D she had to pay the company that got it for her about £9,000 but she was still quid's in. She took OH and me out for a slap up meal :luv:
I got over £3,500 from my bank for when they charged for having a bank account with benefits that were not appropriate.
It's always worth checking.

We got over 20K too and that was also more bankloan related. It paid off our mortgage.
