Mis Sold PPI from Welcome car Finance

Hi Edwin, not sure if this can be answered here but I took out a car with Welcome Finance and fell behind on the payments. It was a bad deal and in a rage i got the car scrapped but, obviously this left me with a damaged credit history.

I was going to go down the PPI claim route as I know I was mis sold payment protection insurance, but is that a valid claim with me getting rid of car?

Hi Lee, i think you could still claim the payments you made on the PPI back as long as you can prove you were mis sold the insurance in the first place.

I'd seek some independent financial advice asap and see where you stand legally. Do you still owe Welcome money? I can't believe you scrapped the car when there was still finance outstanding :-) Anyway - good luck

Rate Edwin’s advice.

Hi Edwin thanks very much for the advice and will get on to legal now. Yes a very silly move on my part but gives you an idea of the level of frustration dealing with welcome finance to be reasonable. Yes there is money outstanding.
