Litigation Services is a company we already wrote about in 2014, but they are one of the few that continue their cold calls and their empty promises
At first sight it all looks in order. The company presents a nice website www.litigationservices.es and they display their Company Registration number B93268936
What most consumers don’t know is that this company is registered as being active in the sector of “Construccion y Desarollo” which means Construction and Development. That seems of course extremely strange for a supposed legal company…
Other cold calling “legal” companies, such as Delta Litigation; Fast line Legal Services and Legal Prosecutors used the same company registration number.
A nice and plausible agent from Litigation Services contacts the consumer by cold call, and explains they are doing a court claim against a company that has defrauded the consumer in the past.
Strange enough they seem to “concentrate” their cold calls on consumers who had dealings in the past with companies such as KPTA – Key Property Town Advisory and Ramirez and Ramirez, who actually offered them a similar claim as well.
They also cold call consumers who fell for a real estate fraud such as the duped owners who bought through Instant Access Properties, Inside Track and MRI MacAnthony Real Estate in Marbella.
Nobody has though any knowledge of any claims against the above mentioned companies!
Consumers are informed they can join the claim on a no win no fee basis, but they do need to pay for translation services and a so-called “legal report”. These costs are between 400 and 1750 euros.
They use a third party company called Klik & Pay for these payments, which is a credit card payment but as the money goes through the third party, the payment is no longer protected in the same way as with a direct payment. So when consumers realize after many months that there were no translations, no claims, nothing, and they try to get the money back, it results in an impossible task.
Going back to the website of Litigation Services, they present their “team”. And Administrator; Daniel Calle, Customer Services; Emma Jayne Kiernan and the Assistant of the lawyer; Jorge de la Mata Perez. Nobody has ever spoken to these people directly, or even received correspondence from them.
The same goes for the lawyers who supposedly are connected to Litigation Services.
The company JLC Legal Services is mentioned, with a lawyer’s registration number.
No records of such company are found, and eventhough the lawyer’s number is a real number, who can say this lawyer is really connected?
Contact details for JLC Legal Services are supposedly the same as the contact details of Litigation Services:
Address: Calle Coronel Ripolet, Edificio Santos Rein 3-A, 29640 Fuengirola
Telephone +34 951 120 266 and +34 951 247 133 Fax: (UK Number) 0871 2668118
All the communications seem to go through the people who call first, among which we have seen names such as Brigid 0’Sullivan, Caroline Clark, Samantha Lee, Gerald Sinclair, etc.
Whenever consumers ask the agent from Litigation Services who the connected lawyers are, they don’t ever seem to mention JLC Legal Services at all. When asking if they can speak to the lawyer directly, this never seems to be an option.
Even emails sent from the consumers directed to the lawyers, are replied to by the staff of Litigation Services.
One of most surprising issues as well is the fact that litigation Services sends the consumer an itemised breakdown of all moneys they can claim.
Included in this breakdown are the money paid to other dubious companies, the money paid to holiday clubs or timeshare, and even the money paid that was “promised” by the precious companies as a pay out! Amounts that were taking out of the blue and nothing to do with the amounts paid.
How on earth can you claim in court an amount promised by a fraudulent company?
The translation of documents, although not an unreasonable issue when taking up legal services in a foreign country, are never justified with any copy of the actual translation. There is no name of the sworn translator who did the job, or an invoice with full company name and VAT etc.
Last but not least, Litigation Services also claims that they have already a long range of cases won in the courts.
When asking for documented proof of such successful court claims, they refuse to provide these based on the data protection law, as they cannot disclose the names of the claimants. Asking them to delete the claimants’ names is not an option.
Funny how the Data protection law seems to work for them when they don’t want to provide these documents, but they completely ignore this law when cold calling in the first place!
