HC Mediators, the cold calling Mediation Company in Spain.

hcm

A new cold calling Mediation Company has been spotted by the name of HC Mediators.

This company seems to have a lot of information about the Timeshare consumer they contact, as they know all about their dealings with other dubious companies in the past.

HC Mediators is a Spanish Registered Company, and this registration was done in February 2014.

They also have a website http://www.hcmediators.com/ where they do provide their registration number but not an office address or any other company details that would provide clear identification on who they are.

For contact they use a UK telephone numbers 0845 869 1325 & 0203 598 0598

Email info@hcmediators.com

The pitch they use is that through mediation they can recover monies lost to dubious resale companies as they have been “closed down”. All assets of these companies have been seized and HC Mediators will be able to claim on behalf of the victim…

In order to start this mediation they will need a £500 filing fee and after the settlement they will charge a 10% over the awarded money as well.

The court filing fee needs to be paid up front and this can be done by bank transfer as they do not use Credit / Debit Cards.

Please note that there has not been any company closed down where assets have been seized and are waiting to be awarded to the victims.

Cold calls and upfront payment requests are never a good sign, so we certainly recommend caution when dealing with HC Mediators.

If you have been contacted by HC Mediators from 08458691325 or 02035980598 then please let us know.

    I have just been contacted by H c mediators, they wanted a £485 +vat sum to be paid by bank transfer. I was a guy called Sam who sounded very plausible but he was promising to get money back that Sol Bookers had promised to reclaim for me on a timeshare. I would have thought if they were genuine they could pursue the claim as they say then take 10% as a fee rather than an up front payment

    • Neil says:

      If anybody wants money up front don’t go with it its a con

      • Butler says:

        Yes, exactly. They did phone back to see if I had received their email and whether I was going to proceed which I am not. I thought I might get the hard sell but the contact (a woman this time) thanked me for my time and hung up. Hopefully they will not contact me again under a new name.

    Neil i to have been contacted by H C
    Looks bad on there part?

  3. Andrew says:

    I have just been contacted by HC Mediators following a mediation with the company that committed a scam. They ran through a series of figures and asked if i was happy with my compensation figure. However i would have to pay 10% of the settlement figure which would be held by HC Mediators until they could obtain the full amount. I contacted one of the companies which HC said they had obtained compensation money from. This company has not been wound up but are still operating. Be careful when dealing with HC.

  4. Mike says:

    I have been called on a number of occasions by HC Mediators stating that they can get my money back from Half Moon Holding and Blue Chip all for a down payment of £598.95 and 10% when they win. I have held off committing to this service and then I check your website and realised that many other people have been contacted with the same story.
    Is there any evidence of success also as far as I am aware both Blue Chip and Half Moon Holdings are still in Business although they do not seem to be able to sell my Club Class Membership.
    I have also had a very costly experience with Online Executive Travel who are based in Manchester who work with Level 9 – I am not sure if anyone else has had any dealings with this company..?
    HC Mediators also stated that Half Moon, Blue Chip and Level 9 are all related companies – I am not sure if this is true or not.?

    • Neil says:

      do not do anything with them

      • D B says:

        Yes, since the last phone call and an email which sends the bank transfer details etc I have heard nothing more from them. I half expected to seeing as I haven’t and am not sent them any money.

        On another point I suppose my sending money via bank transfer it makes it harder to claim back as is possible with a credit card. I also wonder how ‘ legal’ what they are trying to do with regard to the Breach of Contract clause they are using to justify their cold calling and subsequent requests for upfront payment

    My wife took calls today from Iberian Dream Homes.Are they really still trying it on? The other was from Stephanie Davis of H C Mediators on 08458691325. No other info but they might call back.

  6. mick says:

    just been called by Amanda Ryder from HC Mediators who again promised to act on seized assets to obtain 65% minimum of contract price plus depositback all for 10% charge and just over 600gbp by bank transfer to enable their solicitor to lodge the claim. Sounds like a new variation of the old s***.

  7. Susan says:

    Like Monica have been contacted by hc mediators. She said she would ring me back so I can gather my documents together, but thought I would check your site for information! Is there anyway we can stop these people calling and better still get some recompense for past errors

  8. Ann says:

    I too have been contacted by this firm and the name of the caller was Rosie Swan. She said they were acting against the company Sol Bookers.

    • Raimund says:

      my money back i unfortunately investet for resale my resort by the firm EXCALIBUR. She requires an upfront fee from €756,25 and gave me a telephon number in Frankfurt 0049-6922221555 for any Information.

    I am also in the same situation as Monica and wondering if anyone can prove the veracity of this company. They claim to be registered with Companies House in Spain with a Cif no. B-93311538.
