Did you receive an email from G & M Claims & Administration?

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

claims@collector.org

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.

Did you receive an email or phone call from G&M Claims & Administration on number 01618500105 or email claims@collector.org ?

    Further to my post of July 12th. These monkeys never did call me back, (much as I expected) so I DID send a letter to their address to the effect that:- If the money has been awarded, then I could see no problem with them forwarding it onto me minus the “upfront fee” they were asking for.
    THE LETTER WAS RETURNED – “UNABLE TO DELIVER – ADDRESSEE GONE AWAY!”
    NOW THERE’S A SURPRISE!!!!!
    Has anyone else had any further dealings with this thieving bunch??

    I don’t know wheter G & M Claims & Administration have rumbled that we are onto them, but to date I have heard nothing further from them. I wonder why? I may drop them a line to try my “take the costs out of the compensation amount” and see what happens next.

    Hi Sam,
    I also have received a couple of calls from this company much along the same lines. They have also sent me some documentation in an email claiming to be the Spanish court case result.
    They seem to have upped their stakes, as now they are offering an amount of £5250.00 for an up-front fee of £375.00.
    I asked for time to think about it and they are going to call me back in about 10 days. Then I shall ask them to forward me the money I have been awarded MINUS the admin fee and see what their reaction is.
    If they don’t want to play ball, then I shall inform them of this site and that their underhanded attempt to extort monies from us has been rumbled.
    I have also reported this company to Greater Manchester Police website as a potential fraud.
