Ratio Money, the claims management firm where Coronation Street actor Michael Le Vell worked as a director until recently, has ceased trading.
Le Vell, who plays Kevin Webster in Corrie, joined the firm last April but is listed at Companies House as leaving Ratio on March 19 this year.
Leonard Curtis Insolvency Practitioners is acting on behalf of the company but has made no comment regarding what will happen to customers’ claims.
When Le Vell joined the firm last year he said that “thousands of people are suffering hardship and stress from unfair credit agree-ments and substantial over-charging by banks, but help is now at hand”.
Ratio handled cases for consumers who said they had been mis-sold insurance, incurred excessive bank charges, been drawn into unfair credit agreements or received non-compliant mortgage offers.
Last month claims firm Cartel Client Review stopped trading and was later suspended by the Ministry of Justice.
