A new cold calling Mediation Company has been brought to our attention, JD Knight Associates.
This company approaches on a cold call timeshare consumers such as DWVC members and claims to be able to recover their money for them.
JD Knight Associates has a website http://jdknightassociates.com which was created at the beginning of February 2012 and also seems to be busy on social media such as Facebook and Twitter although there are no “likes” or followers on these accounts.
Contact number for JDKnight Associates is 01772 367013 and office address: Unit 5 Albert Edward House, The Pavillions, Ashton-on-Ribble, Preston, PR2 2YB, UK.
UK Companies House registration 7813494
They also mention other offices in Spain although no location is mentioned. Where are these offices?
They state on the web that the process of the consultation would be as follows:
- Telephone consultation.
- Client reviews and agrees to the terms of our service and procedure. Payment – either Standard or Premium Service.
- Client receives (dependent on level of service chosen):
- Interactive E-Book with template downloads and information.
- Client ID and Password to enable access to members’ area on the website
- Access to our forums and social networking sites so you can speak to other clients and receive news and updates.
- Contact details for Client Support from our team.
Well that is re-assuring, first they do a cold call and then they ask for money and after all that you get access to their “member’s area” for what?
The standard service for which they require a payment of £199 will give you a telephone consultation to help you decide what you can do to resolve your issues plus the eBook and, of course, access to our members’ area and social networking sites. So that is £199 for just speaking to them!
And for the Premium Service which costs £475, the client will receive Administration support and letters will be drafted on their behalf.
In order to guarantee the protection of the payment they actually offer this through Pay Pall, but how protected is that?
Please remember that cold callers have obviously obtained your personal details in a dubious way, adding this up to the fact this company does not even explain where they are based and ask for money to give you a call…
