WDL Services is a name we first got mentioned over a year ago. At that time, they were contacting consumers on cold calls and telling them about money awarded through the courts but the money could not be paid out.
The issue was a missing TIE number.
TIE numbers were given out to British residents in Spain after Brexit, and really these numbers have nothing to do with money transfers to the UK.
Follow up emails were received from a Patricia Earnshaw, who stated they could help with obtaining a TIE number, for a small amount of money, cheaper than if you would do it yourself, and the money should be paid to Joanna Bailey their Spanish Liaison.
The emails would come from: firstname.lastname@example.org
After several inquiries it went all quiet on WDL Services. But to our surprise, they are back!
This time they present themselves as “Financial Investigators” and it seems they know about the consumers dealings with (bogus) companies in the past, and they state these companies managed to get a pay out through the courts and again the money is locked up.
This time it is the outstanding notary fees that are holding it up, and the consumer is asked for over 2000 Pounds to get this sorted and become the proud owner of 25.000 Pounds awarded by the Spanish courts.
Yes, it all sounds too good to be true, don’t you think so?
Patricia doesn’t seem to work any longer in DWL Services because now it is Sara Goodwin from the Financial investigations Department.
Do we need to say more?
Telephone number quoted on their correspondence is 012252921**
Please if you are contacted by WDL Services, do not pay them a penny and let us know.
