Made about £3k a month doing it as a private contractor
But the culture of the bank, nature of the work etc made me feel like an utter shitbag
So I quit
From that loan I never took out
Pretty fucking cool that they gave me a load of money for being financially irresponsible when I was younger
Were you taking out a loan to buy Wales?
We can do you a deal on the middle bit anyway that comes free with the North.
They gave me 8% interest on all the money i paid out on it as a good will gesture too.
just to piss the government off. They'll just be getting the taxes off my flights. Suckers
that just reads like someone has sour grapes cos austerity is working.
it seems like a victory as you get a chunk of cash, but it is cash you payed out a few years ago so it isn't really free. Plus to compensate for it, banks will change their practices and it will work out worse in the future anyway.
They always win.
only had a relatively small loan with HSBC. should i have?
They certainly did mis-sell ppi on some of their loans
Basically if you ring them and say you were told to tick everything the consent box on the form without someone going through what PPI was with you, you're quids in.
