The Natwest Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) miss-selling scandal can be traced back as early as 1990 possibly earlier. Natwest PPI continues to make the news headlines for all the wrong reasons and impact borrowers today.
But the two fundamental questions that you must ask yourself are:
Your response to these questions is crucial because many Natwest & RBS borrowers today are discovering that they have paid thousands of pounds for some form of RBS PPI.
In some cases, severe cases the overall costs of the PPI when you factor in the PPI and the compensation works out to be much more than the overall amount that was borrowed. As you seek answers to those questions, a little background is in order to help you understand the murky world of PPI miss-selling. Many borrowers may not even be familiar with PPI, and that is one of the reasons NatWest / RBS are being inundated by borrowers who have mis-sold this insurance. In fact, many customers who were sold PPI by the RBS /Natwest paid a very high price for it. Some never knew that it was part of the mortgage, loan or credit card that they were getting. However, that is only one of the ways PPI was mis-sold there are many more, in fact, the list of reasons are endless.
If you think you were a victim of being sold PPI please click here now and we will tell if you were sold PPI and we will help you establish if you were mis-sold PPI.
PPI - Payment Protection Insurance is designed to take over payments on credit borrowing when borrowers are unable to make the payments themselves perhaps as a result of becoming unemployed or ill. In the case of the mis-sold Natwest PPI, the insurance was sold to cover a variety of products including NatWest mortgages. Also mis-sold were Natwest credit card PPI and personal loan PPI (secured and unsecured). So you have taken out any of these kinds of credit, then there is a real possibility that you were mis-sold your PPI policy by Natwest or the RBS group. Above we mentioned one way that sales advisors mis-sold the PPI, but it certainly was not the only way this occurred.
How Natwest PPI was mis-sold
Some borrowers did not even know that they were purchasing Natwest PPI when they signed their credit agreements. This is because some credit agreements had boxes that were pre-ticked to automatically include this form of insurance. Such customers had to opt-out of the PPI rather than opt-in! This is a case where it was not made clear to the borrower that the PPI was, in fact, optional. In some instances, borrowers were made to feel that they would not qualify if they did not accept the PPI, or that the loan application process would be stopped if the borrower did not agree to the insurance.

Other Ways PPI was mis-sold
Some borrowers were sold the wrong or inadequate PPI and should make a Natwest PPI claim. For example, the term of the PPI sold was shorter than the term of the loan. Other cases involve borrowers who took out a loan jointly, however, the PPI only covered one borrower. Further, if you were already covered through work or elsewhere, you should not have been sold the PPI. If you are self-employed, you may have a claim for compensation. On many occasions, Natwest PPI policies did not cover self-employed individuals when their businesses went bust. If this is your situation, where you informed of this fact? Also, if you were unemployed when you took out the loan and purchased the PPI, there is a good chance you were wrongly sold the insurance. NatWest parent company RBS (Royal Bank of Scotland) was fined heavily by the regulator for taking too long on claims, sometimes dismissing cases without thoroughly investigating all the facts. There are many more violators and the list is extensive and you can review the main offenders here. The Financial Services Authority won its court battle against the British Bankers’ Association in 2011, resulting in up to £4.5bn in compensation to mis-sold borrowers—the number has increased since then. The exact conditions and amounts vary from lender to lender and the list of these lenders is extensive.
