Have you been contacted by Harris & Partners Ltd? Then please be aware of the following.
Harris & Partner Ltd. is using cold call to approach Timeshare and Holiday Ownership consumers who have previously been dealing with dubious companies and lost money to them.
Company details for Harris & Partners are: 10 Halyard Reach, South Woodland Ferres Chelmsford, CH35GN
Telephone number: 0843 886 9707
The agent from Harris & Partners Ltd seems to know everything about this. Good news is though that they will be able to recover the consumer has lost.
Of course the consumer is interested in knowing how they can recover the money, and the agent explains the procedures. In order to create a “fiscal link” the consumer has to buy 2 UKASH Vouchers. 1 voucher in the value of £100 for the postcode. And another £200 voucher to verify the surname.
They also provide a “licence number” to the consumer which he has to register with UKASH on a phone number provided by Harris & Partners Ltd.
The number is 0203 289 3679 and a lady called Katherine Lloyd attends the phone and explains that the consumer should give the agent at Harris and Partners the 19 digit code from the bottom of the voucher as proof of the creation of a fiscal link. This money will be refunded from UKASH on completion of the transaction.
Unfortunately, once the consumer provides the code to the agent of Harris & Partners Ltd, there is no courier with a cheque and when asking UKASH it turns out that the vouchers have been cashed in the meantime…
Please note that the number given for UKASH is NOT the telephone number of this company and clearly the lady attending the call is included in the set up.
It is also very likely that the people behind this set up are mis using the name of a genuine registered company.
As we have seen a lot of similar companies with a very similar pitch, we would certainly recommend being extremely cautious when Harris & Partners Ltd contacts you or any other company that asks for UKASH Voucher payments.
If you have been contacted from 08438869707 or any other number and asked to purchase UKASH vouchers to process a claim, then please do let us know.
