At purplequid.co.uk, providing an exceptional customer experience is our top priority. If you would like to express your dissatisfaction with any of our services, please follow our complaints procedure, below. If you have a complaint about your lender, please contact that lender directly.
How to File a Complaint
Please provide a detailed description of your complaint along with your contact information to our Compliance department by email at: [email protected].
You may also direct your complaint to us by post or by telephone:
c/o Compliance Department
Suite 5, 23 Hinton Rd,
Telephone: 0808 189 0649
Upon receipt of your complaint, we will do our best to resolve it by the end of the next business day.
If we’re unable to do this, we will send you a prompt written acknowledgment of your complaint within three (3) working days and tell you who is handling it. In addition, we will provide you with a copy of our complaints handling procedure.
The complaint process might require an internal or external investigation, which may result in a longer resolution time. If we need to investigate your complaint further to respond fully, we will tell you and keep you regularly updated. Please note that complicated complaints might prompt a comprehensive investigation. We will send our final response as soon as possible, but in any case within eight weeks of receiving your complaint. We regret that not all complaints can be resolved to the satisfaction of the customer.
Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS)
If you are unhappy with our response to your complaint, you may contact the Financial Ombudsman Service for their consideration. The website for the FOS is http://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk. Please contact the Financial Ombudsman Service within six months of receiving our final response.
Note: Please ensure that you are contacting the FOS with regard to the correct party. We are a brokerage service, and not a lender. We do not make credit decisions, issue loans, or engage in collection activity. Please contact us if you have a question about the identity of your lender.
In addition to the options described above, you may also request a review on the European Online Dispute Resolution platform, located at: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr.
