A very serious complaint has been brought to our attention regarding a mailing received from a company called OH Control Accounts, or OHC Accounts.
This company is doing letter mailings to timeshare consumers, claiming that they have outstanding fees for their timeshare week(s) which need to be paid urgently.
The letter contains the timeshare consumers personal contact details and timeshare ownership. Alarm bells started ringing with those who sold or surrendered this membership some time ago and are no longer owners.
OH Control Account requests an urgent payment and even provides in the letter the full bank details where the consumer should transfer the fees. This is a bank account in Ulster, Ireland.
They also provide a contact number 0845 649 2988 and an email address for the lady in the Recoveries Department called Anita Bouwman and her email is email@example.com
The letter looks very official and genuine, more even because all company details are on there and this company seems to be registered with the UK Companies House and OFT
This is though certainly NOT the case! The details on the letter are taken from a genuine company called Control accounts, on the same address but with a totally different phone number, no bank accounts in Ireland and certainly not a Gmail account for contact!
The genuine Control Account company has reconfirmed with us that they are aware of this scam and it has been reported to both the Police and the OFT.
If you have received a letter from the fake OH Control Account requesting a payment for outstanding fees, please let us know!
