This apparent new company cold calls timeshare consumers, mainly those with a Reclaim or Cash back certificate and offer them to recover money from these certificates.
In the initial call there is no mention of an upfront payment and the agent even drops the No Win No fee phrase. But of course this is something time will tell.
Initial research on Carlton J Williams Escrow Services sl has given us the following information.
Carlton J Williams Escrow Services sl is registered at the Spanish Companies House since the 20th of November 2012. Their address is a postbox on the Costa del Sol: Apartado de Correos 75 – Benalmadena Pueblo – Mijas Costa.
Telephone number 0845 154 0992
So telling a consumer they are a UK Based company, working from Gibraltar, seems to be very confusing.
The postbox address seems familiar, and was mentioned not so long ago on the blog for a very similar company: Grant Thornton Escrow Services SL. This company was using the name of a reputable company in the UK which could have created certain “confusion” with consumers. But it seems this has been sorted as the website for Grant Thornton Escrow Services is no longer active.
And now we have Carlton J Williams Escrow Services SL from the same address but with a different website: www.carltonjwilliamsescrowservices.com
On this website the consumer can see the services they offer, and surprisingly there is no mention at all about Timeshare and / or Missold Holiday Ownerships. One would expect this to be one of their main commitments taking in account they are doing a cold call campaign on this!
On the web Carlton J Williams Escrow Services also claims to be working with a Spanish lawyer María del Carmen Rodriguez Mañas. (Telephone +34 951 923 859). And we wonder if this lawyer is aware of the fact this company is offering legal services on a cold call, as this is not allowed in Spain!
As Carlton J Williams Escrow Services seems to provide confusing information on a cold call , we certainly would recommend to be cautious when dealing with this company.
