Corrie star’s claims firm closes

Ratio Money, the claims management firm where Coronation Street actor Mike Le Vell’s worked as a director until recently has ceased trading.

Le Vell, who plays Kevin Webster in Coronation Street joined the firm in April 2009, but is listed on Companies House as leaving the firm on March 19.

Leonard Curtis Insolvency Practitioners is acting on behalf of the firm and it is not known yet what will happen to clients’ claims.

When Le Vell joined the firm last year he said that: “Thousands of people are suffering hardship and stress from unfair credit agreements and substantial overcharging by the banks. But help is now at hand.”

Ratio handled cases for consumers who had been mis-sold insurance, incurred excessive bank charges, been drawn into unfair credit agreements or received non-compliant mortgage offers.

Ratio Money is the latest claims firm to go bust.

Last month Cartel Client Review stopped trading and was later suspended by the Ministry of Justice.
