No let-up in PPI complaints in three months to September
Figures from the second quarter of 2016/17 (July – September 2016) by the Financial Ombudsman Services (FOS) have revealed it received a total of 79,534 complaints.
Over half of the new cases it took on – 42,907 – were about PPI, while complaints about packaged bank accounts (5,317) and current accounts (4,030) continued to dominate the FOS’ workload.
In total, out of all the complaints received, FOS found in favour of consumers in 45% of cases.
Comparing the latest statistics with the previous quarter, PPI complaints have fallen slightly (43,569), as have those about packaged bank accounts (7,315).
However, gripes about current accounts have etched up from the 3,789 reported in the previous quarter.
