Yes indeed, it looks like we have another company with a very similar pitch to a lot of others that have seen the light in the past months. This time they are using the name of Harley Accountancy Services.
Old calling agent Carl Harris from Harley Accountancy Services claims to be based at 3 Millfield ,Southwater, WestSussex RH139HU which is indeed the address of the company which is registered at the Companies House by this name. But as we have seen before there are serious doubts if they are really working for this company and it is more likely they are mis-using the name.
The agent calls from 0203 286 2845 or 0843 886 9707 and claims that money has been recovered through the courts from companies that have been convicted by the court and the seized money from these companies are now paid back to their victims.
All the Timeshare Owner needs to do is buy some UKASH Vouchers in order to verify his identity, so that Harley Accountancy Services isn’t paying out the money to the wrong person!
They do provide the UKASH Telephone number 0203 290 6802 to check their licence number being HAS 2283, but when contacting supposedly UKASH on this number, the consumer is told he will be called back. They indeed call back and the lady on the phone confirms that Harley Accountancy Services is an OK company.
On checking the numbers for UKASH, please be informed that 0203 290 6802 is NOT a UKASH Telephone number and neither do they confirm if companies are ok to deal with, etc.
Those consumers who fell into the trap of buying into the UKASH Vouchers and waited for a courier to arrive with their cheque, found out quickly that such cheque never arrived…
There is another “twist” to the story as well, as some consumers have been called back and were explained that the money didn’t arrive as this had been tracked through 17 banks and ended up in Ukraine! The only way to release the money would be by paying the relevant taxes to the Ukrainian government but for that you either have to be a national or a resident in Ukraine. Another option is though to do this through a Notary Liability which costs £1570 and can be paid through Western Union.
Again a number is provided for Western Union 0203 289 3679 and quote a licence no.HPL5585 to authorise the payment. Checking on the web it becomes clear that this number is NOT AT ALL for Western Union and yet again it is the same bogus company doing their game with consumers.
If you have been contacted by Harley Accountancy Services from 02032862845 or any other company with a similar story to the above, then please let us know urgently.
