PPI Claims Company Unearths Incredible PPI Refund Statistic

Wednesday 12 March, 2014
When it comes to facts and figures; the PPI claims industry oozes them, from the average payout figure to the number of claims and the total refunded; there are plenty to choose from. But PPI claims advice website www.PPIClaimsAdviceLine.com has uncovered an astonishing and eye-watering statistic that reveals the true scale of the mis sold PPI scandal.

Number crunching
After crunching some numbers the team at PPIClaimsAdviceLine.com have unearthed the amount UK banks and building societies have refunded every single second for the last three years. The figure was worked out using the latest refund amounts provided by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the monthly totals cover 1st January 2011 to 30th November 2013 and add up to £13.3 billion.

'Too big to relate to'
Speaking about the new statistic, Allan Burns, Head of Customer Service at Oracle Legal, said: 'We're all exposed to these huge figures from the PPI claims industry; £13billion refunded, £20billion set-aside, but they're meaningless and too big to relate to.'

'We wanted to break these figures down and make them more relatable, so we took the total amount refunded by banks and building societies and broke it down using the period of time over which it had been paid out. That's £13.3 billion over almost three years and it gave us some amazing figures that really show the scale of the mis sold PPI debacle.'

The FCA figures cover a time period of 2 years, 11 months or 1065 days, not content with an overall total PPIClaimsAdviceLine.com have broken the amount refunded down into hours, minutes and seconds to reveal a truly astonishing figure.

New ways to make a claim
It's not the first time the website has offered up an alternative look at the PPI claims industry, their recent post: '6 Ways To Get Your Mis sold PPI Payments Back' gave readers some new options when it comes to reclaiming PPI premiums, but it came with a pretty clear disclaimer.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
