FCA to write to affected card protection customers

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is writing to two million people that were mis-sold bank card insurance to advise them on how to make a claim for compensation.

The compensation scheme covers anyone that purchased the insurance between January 2005 and August 2013.

Customers paid around £25 a year to protect themselves against the loss or theft of their bank cards.  However, the regulator deemed this unnecessary as cover was already provided by their banks.
