With some companies you just wonder if you finally have heard it all.
Zel Consultancy is cold calling Timeshare Consumers, mainly DWVC members with the following story:
Zel Consultancy claims to be working on behalf of the Spanish Government, saying the reclaim certificate obtained from DWVC/ILG wasn’t registered correctly, and they will send a consultant to the consumer’s home to give them the correct paper work, so they can claim in excess when the certificate matures. They also claim that ILG had invested the consumer’s money and that the Spanish Government wants to give it back and any unclaimed monies would be given to Spanish charities.
To take up this amazing service a fee of £289.00, has to be paid when the consultant visited, however they do need a visa or master-card number in advance. This is to be covered by the insurance on mis sold goods if they would not fulfill their part of the deal.
They seem to have the consumers’ reclaim certificate number which they claim proofs their legitimacy.
How about that for an amazing pitch?
The web Address of Zel Consultancy Group is http://www.zelconsultancy.co.uk/ registered in August 2011.
The strange part of this all is that on the website there is no mention at all of any similar services provided by this company as they are a purely marketing company.
The person who is cold calling consumers is Stephen Johnston and he gives out a telephone number: 0207 1836897, and as their address: 145 St John’s Street London EC1V 4PW, this is different to their web site address.
So we have to put a question mark here if the person calling is really from the company mentioned with the corresponding website, or is purely trying to make it look all official and well registered by using the name of an existing company who most probably doesn’t even know about the fact their name is abused!
Please watch out for this one and if you received a cold call from Zel Consultancy Group on number 02071836897 please let us know!
