What contributed to the PPI mis-selling scandal becoming the biggest issue to have affected the British banking industry ever?
There are many reasons, and one was that PPI sales were driven by targets, along with relentless pressure to meet and surpass these targets.

These figures in themselves illustrate the depth of the PPI mis-selling scandal but an interview with a former bank employee by The Guardian newspaper some years ago shows the true nature of the PPI sales driven scandal.
Their experience relates to 2002 up until the employee left the bank in 2004.
The former employee reveals:
