Who's texting me about PPI?

I got fed-up with receiving texts about PPI so I've decided to start following up on every single one. Here's my first.


Received on the 06/03/2013. The source of the text is The PPI Claims OfficeNew window, Suite 121, Peel House, 30 The Downs, Altrincham, Cheshire, WA15 2PX. This has been confirmed by the company in response to a subject access request.

+447514163610 – Unsure if you qualify for a refund of up to £7000 in mis-sold PPI paid on a loan or credit card? Reply PPI and we will run  a no obligation check or reply STOP.

The PPI Claims Office withheld their identity on the text, which is a contravention of the PECR. However, they have since assured me that this was done in error and they're now going to test all texts before sending them out. If you're receiving unidentfied PPI texts from this number then you should submit a subject access request and then submit a complaint to the Information Commissioner's Office.
