A new cold caller by the name of Grant Thornton Escrow Services SL. After receiving the first emails about this cold caller who offers an Alternative Dispute Resolution against Club Class we started to do some research and found the following interesting information.
Grant Thornton Escrow Services SL registered their website at the end of September 2012
Their address is a postbox: Apartado Correos 75, Benalmadena Pueblo, Mijas Costa, Malaga, 29639, Spain. Telephone : 0845 154 2551 and E-mail:
The company Grant Thornton Escrow Services SL was registered at the Spanish Companies House at the end of September 2012
What slightly confuses is the name of the company, as there is another company, a prestigious and reputable accountants company called Grant Thornton in the UK, with websites www.grant-thornton.co.uk and http://www.uk.gt.com / This company has confirmed to us that they have NOTHING to do with Grant Thornton Escrow Services SL!
Going back to the cold call, what Grant Thornton Escrow Services tells the consumer on the cold call is the following.
Grant Thornton Escrow Services SL actually says they can claim back all the expenses paid to Club Class for the Membership and Cashback Certificate. In order to do so they ask the consumer to send them all copies of documents and also reasons for making a claim against Club Class.
When they receive all this, a decision will be made whether the consumer will qualify for a claim to be made by lawyers acting on his behalf. The procedure should take between 8 and 12 weeks. When the monies have been claimed, the amount due to the consumer would be paid into his bank account minus 10% of the total amount claimed by me for their fees.
Taking into account this company is cold calling Club Class Members, (obviously they got their hands on a members list) and they use a company name that could seriously confuse a consumer, we ask for caution when dealing with this company and to make sure that no payments are made upfront.
No taxes, no notary costs, no IVA or NIE or whatever excuse companies come up with for payments without calling it an upfront fee!
Your personal details should not be in the hands of companies you never contacted before. There is such a thing as Data Protection Law and you are certainly NOT on a Timeshare owner register open for any company to purchase!
