This new alert goes out for a company called A to Z Claim Services who has started cold calling timeshare consumers over the past week.
A to Z Claim Services has also a website www.atozclaimservices.co.uk which was registered on the 15th of July 2012
The address for this company is 7 Church Street, Reading, RG1 2SB and phone number 0118 384 2136 and Fax 0118 384 2137
On their website they already mention the following: “Although we cover many different types of claims, this website was recently built for the sole purpose of providing information for victims of ILG, Club Class, Designer Way Vacation Club and the growing number of fake resellers.”
The website is though very similar to one we have seen before from a company called Been Mis-sold www.been-missold.co.uk and the question here of course is if they maybe are connected? Been Missold was already mentioned on our blog http://wp.me/p1kmoi-te as they cold call as well and the services offered are questionable for the upfront payment they request.
On the website from A to Z Claim Services in the terms and conditions, it is mentioned that they are actually a Trade Mark for another company called R Z Legal Services.
RZ Legal Services is registered at the UK Companies House since the 19th of July 2012, so just a month ago!
After the initial cold call AtoZ Claim Services sends a confirmation email to the consumer, and it is quite surprising to see that they go a bit further with their concerns of the well-being of the consumer by advising them of the following:
“A Word of Caution:
There are a number of businesses and ‘law firms’ passing themselves off as non-governmental Organizations that purport to govern and police other timeshare-related businesses as well as advise timeshare owners. Some of these are: TATOC, OTE, RDO, TCA, ITRA and Ramirez & Ramirez – although there are others These are all privately funded and are NOT part of any government or official body. In the case of TATOC and the RDO (who also use a website called Mind timeshare) these businesses are funded entirely by timeshare resorts and points providers – some of whom are currently the subject of litigation, themselves.….”
Apart from the fact they name different organizations from totally different backgrounds in one sentence, it is very surprising that a supposed genuine legal company is warning against almost any other “company” or consumer organization that might tell the consumer to not trust A to Z Claim Services!
So far this company is cold calling and using personal data from consumers without a clear explanation of where this was obtained. There has been no mention of money but seen the above and the fact they clearly do not differentiate between organizations that help consumers FOR FREE and others who clearly are out there to get money off the consumers, well we cannot say the least to be very cautious when dealing with ATOZCLAIMSERVICES!
Have you been contacted by A to Z Claim Services from 01183842136 and been offered a legal service to recover your money paid into timeshare? Please do let us know.
