Is the "if you took out a loan or finance before May 2007 is was unlawful and we can clear it with no cost to you" phone calls, newspaper adverts, mail a scam?

I still have finance on my car (bought in March 2006) & it would be great if it was cleared!!

Is it just me or has anyone else had these phone calls? At work we have been getting faxes stating the same thing.

Has anyone had loans/finance cleared from this or is it just a big fat con?!

It's not a scam, it is to do with mis-sold loans and insurances

They are not going to wipe your debt just like that for no reason - which is what I think you are alluding to

The 2 I know of are Cartel & 7 Marketing - These 2 are NOT scams. They charge you a fee but you get it refunded if they cant clear your loans/cards etc.

I was told when I took a loan out that if I didn't take the insurance I basically wouldn't get the loan - not sure how I can prove that though :(

They're "ambulance chasers".

Have a look on [url]www.moneysavingexpert.com[/url] where there's quite a lot of information about these types of operations. Basically, don't give them any money at all because you'll probably never see it again. If they offer to do it for free on a no win/no fee basis and you're not confident that you could get the money back yourself then they may be worth considering. You'd probably be better off going to the Citizen's Advice though.

We got money back from A&L for PPI - they added the policy onto our old mortgage payments without our knowledge (they didn't provide quotation for monthly payments without it but didn't tell us the payments included PPI or give us any policy details when we took out the mortgage).

The anger soon subsided after we looked at the cheque for the refund of payments & compensation! We didn't know we had paid for it so didn't think we had ever been "missold" a PPI policy.
