RCB Associates has now changed name to BRC & Associates (Consultants)

Not the first time a dubious company decides to change their name after a warning has been published on our blog. (Link http://wp.me/p1kmoi-ui)

RCB Associates now comes forward as B.R.C. & Associates (Consultants) and they have also slightly changed their address.

If in the first round they pretended to be based in Torremolinos on the Costa del Sol, this time round they seem to have moved to Malaga, the capital of the Costa del Sol, Pje Lapeira 28009 Malaga.

What hasn’t changed is their phone number +34 951 247 057 and fax 0872 115 6620 and the email address was not altered either and remains as rcbassociates@consultant.com

B.R.C. & Associates sends out letters to consumers, pretending to be working on behalf of the Spanish Courts and handling a settlement that was done in a court case against Lopez/Wilson and where money has been set aside for the victims.

In order to get the money set aside for the consumer, a fee has to be paid by bank transfer.

Please note that there is no such thing as a court case or settlement made for LOPEZ/WILSON and neither has the Spanish Government set aside money for the victims. If at all the Spanish Government would be involved in such thing, this would certainly not be handled by a third party company such as B.R.C. & Associates, with no registration at all and requesting fees to be paid through bank accounts under an individual’s name!

If you received a letter or phone call from RCB Associates, BRC & Associates or anything similar with a similar story, then please let us know first and don’t pay any money!

    My father-in-law recieved a phone call last week from B.R.C. & Associates (Consultants). They told him that he will recieve a letter with all the details on it. True to their word the letter arrived today 13th March 2013. I’m just informing everyone that these people are still trying to sc** you out of your money. They want £275.00 upfront in sterling & a settlement for us of 5,865.00 Euros has been set aside. My message to you all is PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not part with your money as this company is a FRA**!!!!!

  4. Barbara says:

    Thankyou for your message on your website with respect to B.R.C. & Associates (Consultants).

    My mother received a letter from them and phonecalls. She associated it with a timeshare that she had taken out some time ago and lost money on it, thus wondered if there had been some court case. She showed me the letter (exactly as described) and within a 30 second search I found your website. No money has been sent to them and I can easily see how people can be fooled, though my mother had no intention of sending any money anyway – even I thought twice about it and I consider myself quite wise to these sort of things.

  5. John says:

    They are claiming to have £5000 in settlement for me relating to a company called Altona. They want money upfront before the end of the month.

  6. Graham says:

    I have an elderly friend who is being bombarded with exactly the same letter and phone calls every day trying to get money. I have advised her to have nothing to do with the “company” and I have sent you a copy of a email sent to them today. Doubtless I shall not be getting a reply!
