Sometimes we don’t receive all the information about a company when they are at their most active, this is the case with G&M Claims & Administration.
We know they have been very active in past months by sending emails to timeshare consumers about a supposed court action in Spain where the timeshare consumer has been awarded an amount of money.
The email from G&M Claims & Administration actually states:
“We are now the claims agency that has been assigned to deal with all the claimants in the United Kingdom. We confirm that you have been awarded £ X,XXX.00.00 from the monies seized relating to the above action. Please be advised this is a statutory offer of settlement and will conclude all your dealings with this action.”
And of course as nothing is for free, neither it is in this case so G&M Claims & Administration explains more:
“Your fee for processing this claim from the escrow account will be £ 245.00 to be made to the appropriate Administrator for this. Upon receipt of funds, the administrators will formally organise the settlement to you, to be paid as per your instructions and all legal contracts or documents will be forwarded to you for your final signature and completion of the claim.
Payment can be made to the bank account as detailed upon receiving this notification. Please make sure to put your claim reference number as above when transferring the fee as reference.”
So that is a bank transfer they are asking for, a payment method which is not protected and difficult to recover in case you seek a refund.
The company details on the email are as follows:
G & M, CLAIMS AND ADMINISTRATION with address: Portland House Suite,31-C, 103 Portland Street, Manchester M1 6HJ and Telephone: 0161 850 0105 FAX 0871 528 3846
Most worrying thing is that there is a G & M Claims company registered at the UK Companies House, and when checking with them directly they did not know anything about the above and neither were the names of the callers known by them, less working or them.
