Just when you thought it was safe to start reading your emails, just when you thought that the big "Have you been mis-sold PPI" telephone calls are over - it's back.
There's another £1 billion to claim. The tossers who kept calling me to ask me to claim PPI compensation must be salivating, and digging out their old lists of phone numbers and email addresses. Brace yourselves.
I do remember, a very long time ago (about 40 years, I think) when I took out a mortgage, I was offered PPI insurance by (I think) the Building Society. Or it might have been the company that sold the with-profits insurance policy that I used to pay off the loan. Anyway. I read what they were offering, and it seemed to me to be something that wasn't worth the cost. I can't remember exactly why I decided against it.
