PI Legal Service, a new cold caller to help you reclaiming money

A new cold caller by the name PI Legal Services has started their campaign recently.

They cold call timeshare consumers, and offer them help to reclaim money paid to different timeshare companies in UK and Spain.

PI Legal Services seems to have all the consumers’ details, including their membership details which is quiet worrying as this information should not be in their hands.

The website from PI Legal Services www.pi-legalservices.com was registered on the 13th of April 2012

Their phone number is 0844 37 600 35 although their office address is located in the Canary Islands: Antonio Dominguez Alfonso 8, Office 16, Playa de las Americas, 38660 Tenerife

Email address admin@pi-legalservices.com

PI Legal Services explains over the phone and in a follow up email that there is a fee of £400 to initiate the claim.

They also mention in the email the following:

“At the end of your claim when you receive a full refund, we P I Legal Services, get paid in the form of compensation which is added to your claim to cover our costs. This is not payable by you.”

And:

“Here at P I Legal Services we take pride in our ability to complete the majority of claims within 14 working days”

That sounds very quick! And even quicker taking in account they also take on board claims from consumers who paid by Debit Card a couple of years ago, in spite of the fact that a refund claim for debit cards has to be done inside 120 days counting from the day of the financial transaction!

And where does this compensation come from they mention?

Between the cold call and the upfront fee of £400 we certainly would recommend caution when dealing with this company!

Have you been called already by PI Legal Services from 08443760035 in Tenerife?

    It would be nice if we had positive reliable information about selling our timeshare, rather than only names of con companies. Regards

    Yes, I have been contacted by PI Legal and, yes, they have persuaded me to pay an initial payment of £400 and explained I would need to make a further payment of £400 after successful conclusion of the claim. That was until yesterday when they said the total amount they were pursuing on my behalf was now of the order of £10,000 more than they originally thought. The managing director, Carl, then asked me to transfer a further £1,000 payment to PI Legal services in addition to the other fees. I haven’t yet paid this. The breakdown of my claim is that part of it is credit card payments to Carpe Diem, part is a bank transfer to Carpe Diem and part is that Carpe Diem sold some of my holiday vouchers with a promise of at least £2000 return to me which I never received. All of this happened in 2007 and obviously I was grateful that any legal firm thought they could get me some of the money back. I am now very worried that I have paid another £400 and are these people going to deliver?

      P I LEGAL service are a total fraud. We have paid up £15000 and have been pursuing them for the last two years where they send few hundred pounds. It feel like they are giving charity donation when all we want is our money back.

Secondly we will attempt to claim the amount of £11,950.00 which you loaned and paid to Carpe Diem via bank transfer. The reason for processing the claim is that you feel you have been defrauded by the above mentioned company and that you did not receive the service you paid for. (As confirmed by you, Mrs. Khatri)
