- ‘Thanks to high-pressure selling, seven out of ten loans are sold with PPI, which is hugely overpriced.’
- ‘PPI sounds like valuable protection, doesn't it?’
- ‘The FSA has been putting pressure on banks and loan companies to stop automatically including protection payment insurance (PPI) when customers sign up for new financial products.’
