A company that has started off being active over the past week is TP Associates or TP Helpline as they call themselves on the web.
TP Associates with website www.tphelpline.com seems to be a new company offering mediation services for different kind of issues under which timeshare.
Their website was registered on the 26th of September 2011 although they pretend to have this running since 2005 as stated on the bottom of the webpage.
They do not seem to be registered with the UK Companies House and neither do they quote a registration number on their web site.
The telephone number they use 0843 309 1998 can be ringing anywhere, so it is the question if they are really located on the address 122 Aldermans Green Road, Coventry, Warwickshire
They go on and on about the No Win no Fee claim they are offering to do and only on a successful conclusion to your Mediation claim will TP ASSOCIATES produce an invoice for 10% of the total sum awarded. But that is not really the truth as there is a fee though to be paid for translation fees which get close to £1000.
Whatever they call it, it is an upfront fee …
The fact that on top they asked a consumer for a payment by bank transfer and not credit card makes it indeed very suspicious!
It sums all up unfortunately, the cold call, no company registration, dubious fees upfront and payment method, we would surely recommend to be very cautious and if they want to do your claim, well use Google translation as a consumer suggested!
