The BBC highlights the ‘work task’ debate on their consumer program, Rip Off Britain
Chris and Nicola feature on the BBC consumer program, Rip Off Britain which was originally shown in 2012. Hopefully the appearance on Rip Off Britain will highlight just how much being refused a claim had an effect on them and the dangers of buying the wrong income protection policy.
Using the pseudonym Angry Policyholder Chris set out to find if they were alone or if there was a serious flaw in ‘work task’ / ADL based policies.
Thanks to Twitter and Facebook a campaign was started to scrap ADL’s work tasks and it was not long before consumers, industry experts, the press and trade publications joined the campaign.
Following the appearance on Rip Off Britain the ScotProvSaysNo Twitter feed went mad with hundreds of tweets congratulating Chris and Nicola on their campaign and sticking to their guns.
In total The Angry Policyholder campaign was shown four times on the BBC, including repeats and on an evening and daytime slot.
