If it was not for Resolver I would not have tried to claim PPI myself, within eight weeks I have had a successful claim of £895 and get to keep it all. Thank you, Resolver.

A real help to making your claim for PPI without having to use an expensive claims company. Use the free search that these companies offer, then claim yourself using Resolver. It took me 10 minutes to fill out the online form, and so far, have got a good result!
Tony B via facebook
Found a link to this on the Money Saving Expert website, it's free to use and I've reclaimed 2 mis-sold PPI payments from old loans dating back to 1998. Very easy to use and only took 5 minutes to complete. Do not use a third party unless it's Resolver, as there is no charge to use it. Very happy with the service.

I did my PPI compliant via your site, having made a complete hash of a different claim by myself. I got confirmation that my complaint had been upheld and I could expect a cheque in 28 days. Great result.
Rob E via facebook
Well done guys, I'm not going to say how much, but I just got a cheque from MBNA, your site made it very simple to do :)
Paul O via facebook

General advice on payday loans

Don’t treat payday loans as a regular way to make ends meet - if you repeatedly take out loans, you may find that the repayments become more expensive than the interest on a credit card. Payday loans should be for emergencies only.

Make sure you have enough income to repay. Most payday loans companies will make sure you do with some sort of income check, but it’s best to carefully assess your own finances before taking the plunge

Tell the truth. When going through the application process for a payday loan, you need to be honest, or the payday loan company may end up handing you money you can’t pay back. This could easily lead to spiralling, out-of-control debt

Make sure you’re aware of all charges - there can be hidden extras above and beyond the hefty interest on late repayments. Most responsible lenders will detail these on their website - make sure you check the small print carefully

If you’re unemployed, forget it - if you have a part-time job or no guaranteed source of regular income, then it’s too much of a risk for the lender. No responsible payday loan company will approve a loan for you.

Payday loans can become really difficult to manage, especially if you’re late with repayments. For advice on alternative options or how best to handle serious financial problems, get in touch with the Money Advice Service.
