Capital Accounts the cold caller from Blackpool.

A new cold caller has been brought to our attention by the name of Capital Accounts.

This company claims to be registered at the UK Companies House, and indeed is there such a company by the name of Capital Accounts Ltd, with address 299 CHURCH STREET, BLACKPOOL, LANCASHIRE, FY1 3PF

Telephone number is 0125 3670 190

It is questionable though if the person calling is indeed employed by this registered Capital Accounts and what is more if he/she is even based in the UK!

The doubts we have is to start the cold call, where they claim to be a  British Government funded  company looking to refund people who were scammed  by a bogus companies. They state the bank account of this bogus company has been frozen and funds are available to repay the victims. Amounts of several thousands of Pounds are mentioned.

The cold caller from Capital Accounts tells the consumer that in case of doubt he can check with the UK Companies House. Obviously this is rather nonsense because yes the Companies House can verify if a company is registered but they cannot verify who is (cold) calling you and if what he says is true. But it does make it sound “good”.

Then there is also another department called Direct Help. Direct Help calls from telephone number: 0303 1234 500

They contact the consumer after the initial call from Capital Accounts and they can even confirm that yes, several thousand pounds are set aside in the consumer’s name!

Ukashpin

All the consumer needs to do is purchase 2 x £200 UKASH Vouchers in order to proof he is the real victim / consumer they have on their list, and they can courier over the cheque with the awarded money.

Ouch! Did we not hear this before? Is this not the moment where they ask for only a part of the code on the voucher en in reality the part they don’t ask for they already know? Is this not the story where people who gave part of the code, sat and wait for the courier who never arrived and then when checking the vouchers realized they were cashed in?

I am afraid it is! So please do not fall for this!

If you have been contacted by Capital Accounts from 01253670190 in Blackpool or Direct Help from 03031234500 then do let us know.

    A double word of warning !!!!! If they tell you that they are Lancashire Financial Services Limited they are 100% scam artists as I am the Managing Director of the Company and have nothing to do with this type of business. I have informed the Financial Conduct Authority and the Action Fraud 0300 123 2040 and I suggest you do as well !!!!!!

    Word of warning is true. Please do not pay anyone of these SC** COMPANIES by UCash Vouchers as they ask for numbers that they say are secure and not the ones that take the money. LIARS, LIARS, LIARS. That is exactly what happens. How do we know. WE WERE CAUGHT.
    It is impossible to get the money back. Stick to CREDIT CARDS. Although they are not as easy to get refunds under the credit consumer act as they were.
