HOW TO MAKE A COMPLAINT
If you wish to submit a complaint regarding your PPI policy you can do so by completing our online Customer PPI Questionnaire here.
Alternatively, you can download and print the questionnaire using this link Customer PPI Questionnaire. Please complete the form and return it to us at:
Shop Direct Finance Company
The form needs to be completed by the account holder. If you have authority to act on behalf of the account holder, such as being a claims management company, executor/next of kin, solicitor or hold power of attorney, instead of completing the form online, please download it and return the completed form to us at the address above, including documentation to show that you can act on behalf of the account holder.
If you have changed your name but not told us about it, we will need to see evidence of your change of name, for example, a copy of a marriage certificate, a civil partnership certificate, decree absolute, change by deed poll, or gender recognition certificate before we can progress your complaint. Please do not send us your original document – just a copy.
Having as much information about the sale of your PPI policy and your personal circumstances at the time of the sale will help us to investigate your complaint efficiently. The Customer PPI Questionnaire allows us to capture all the information we need from you. We understand that you may not be able to remember all the information, but please try to complete as much of the form as possible. We may need to contact you if we have any questions about the information you have provided or if we need any further details from you.
If you would prefer to speak to one of our advisors to make your complaint, please contact us on Freephone 0800 015 8512. Our lines are open Monday to Friday 8.00am to 6.30pm.
If you are unhappy with the outcome of your complaint you may refer the matter to the Financial Ombudsman Service by writing to them at South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR or by contacting them on Freephone 0800 023 4567 or 0300 123 9123 (calls to this number are charged at the same rate as 01 or 02 numbers).
