A strange case has been brought to our attention, and we would like to share the information on the blog in order to prevent others falling for this.
After dealing with several resale companies and claims companies, all asking for upfront fees and never delivering what they promised, a consumer was approached by somebody called Gillian Harris.
Gillian Harris presents herself as yet another “legal adviser” who is on the end of the claims process and money is due to be paid out. She confirms the claim has been settled in court and all she needs is a payment of the tax due over the awarded amount.
This money has to be transferred into the bank account of the legal / fiscal representative called David Thurston, and the account details are IBAN ES61 0081 0534 03500 0193 7399 BIC BSABESBB
This is an account of the Banco Sabadell based in Los Cristianos in Tenerife.
After paying a first amount, nothing happens and when the consumer tries to contact Gillian Harris another “legal adviser” Jose Carlos will look into the case but never calls or emails back.
We only have the email contact details of these 2 fake legal advisers.
They seem to be targeting elderly consumers, who unfortunately are more vulnerable and fall into the trap of these smooth talking fraudsters.
If you received any communication from Gillian J Harris Claims or Jose Carlos, after you dealt with bogus resale or claims companies, then please let us know.
