A couple of days ago I received the following text on my mobile phone:
““URGENT you are owed £3350 for the PPI you took out, time is running out to claim, please visit www.ppinomore.com to claim, thank you” “
Clearly this is a scam.
a) as I have filled in no paperwork nor been asked any questions the sender cannot have any idea how much PPI I am due to be refunded
b) I have never taken out PPI and therefore am owed nothing
c) The coward is using a mobile phone number to send out these scam texts.
The organisation’s website claims that their ” partners are regulated by the Ministry of Justice in respect of regulated claims management activities”. I have reported them to the Ministry of Justice.
Ignore them if you receive a similar text.
