Here, we explain how to claim HFC Bank PPI and why choosing Canary Claims to make your claim is the best option for a successful claim.
How Did HFC Bank Mis-Sell PPI?
HFC is owned by HSBC. By February 2017, HSBC had paid over £3 billion to customers for mis-sold PPI. The bank also traded under two various other names: Beneficial Finance and Household Bank. In 2008, HFC was fined over £1 million by the Financial Services Authority (now the FCA) for mis-selling PPI to its customers. At the time, this was the biggest PPI-related fine. However, in 2015, Lloyds was fined £117 million for its handling of PPI complaints, taking lead as the largest PPI fine to date.
The fine highlighted that HFC Bank mis-sold PPI to 160,000 customers. The most common way to mis-sell the insurance was by not asking customers the correct questions to know if they were eligible for the insurance. In addition to this, HFC Bank employees didn’t keep accurate records to know if the PPI sale was suitable for the customer.
