Scam Warning

We are aware that scammers are calling individuals and making it misleadingly appear that the call is coming from our general enquiry line - 0333 200 0110 when it is not. The scammers are advising that a PPI refund is due and trying to sell an insurance policy to cover the cost of fees in order to gain access to bank details.

If you have fallen victim to this scam and have paid money, contact your bank immediately, then report the details to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or via their website:

If you need further advice or explanation from the Claims Management Regulation Unit, you can then contact us on 0333 200 0110.
