Specialists on Claims – SOC and Quinton Hale Associates

warning4

A company by the name of Specialists on Claims or simply SOC has been cold calling for some time now. SOC contacts those consumers who have been cheated by dubious holiday clubs in the past and tell them that they can mediate with a court case against these clubs.

From what Specialists on Claims tells the consumer, they are based in Gibraltar and as far as they know, the courts in Spain have already awarded money towards the victims of the holiday clubs.

In order to claim the awarded money, the Holiday Club Member will have to use a lawyer and Specialists on Claims has actually a lawyer’s office who is handling these cases. That is how the consumer is introduced to Quinton Hale Associates.

Quinton Hale Associates is a company supposedly based in Fuengirola on the Costa del Sol and indeed they will handle the claim from the court.

In order to do so they require an upfront payment of £900 as the court fee plus another set up fee of £700. After the consumer would receive the awarded amount of money, they will be invoiced for another 10% over this amount as a final payment to Quinton Hale Associates.

All payments are requested to be done by bank transfer to Quinton Hale. Obviously the bank transfer payments cannot be claimed back.

As this sounds all too good to be true, and we don’t really like cold callers, we have done some further investigations.

We have been unable to find a company by the name of Specialists on Claims or SOC in Gibraltar. The contact details they use are Telephone: 0203 137 3465 Email claims@specialistsonclaims.com

This leads us to the website www.specialistsonclaims.com but this does not seem to be working and needs a password to access. This domain was registered in November 2013.

In their paperwork Quinton Hale Associates actually refers to another Website: http://www.soc-today.com and again without a password you cannot access. This domain was registered in April 2014.

Telephone number for Quinton Hale Associates is 0207 183 3536

There are no lawyer’s details at all in any of the paperwork provided by Quinton Hale Associates, and neither is there any court case going against a Holiday Club and certainly is there no money awarded at all for victims of holiday clubs!

All the above information gives us the impression that you should be really careful when dealing with Specialists on Claims or Quinton Hale Associates.

If you have been contacted by any of these two companies from 02031373465 or 02071833536 then please let us know.

    I TOO HAVE BEEN CONTACTED BYA JANET TAYLOR OF C & R SERVICES, TEL. NO: 02033934252 AND THEN TRANSFERED OVER TO QUINTON HALE ASSOCIATES S.L. WHO WANT ME TO PAY THEM £1,200.00 SO THAT THEY CAN HAVE MY CLAIM FILE OPENED AND COMPENSATION OF ABOUT £26,000.00 REFUNDED TO ME FOR DEALINGS I HAD WITH EMERALD ROCK HOLDINGS ALPINE HORIZONS AND DIRECT ACTION. TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE. IS THERE NO RECOURSE AGAINST SUCH FRA*******, SURELY UNDER THE EU LAWS WE SHOULD BE IN A POSITION TO STOP SUCH PEOPLE.

    I have been cold called by Jessica White representing Quinton Hale Associates. She claimed to have been given my details after police raided a resale company that had been closed down. I would have to pay £871 to the lawyers account to register my claim against several resale companies I have been conned by in the past. I could expect to get everything I paid them plus a percentage of what they had promised for the resale. Again it sounds very tempting but too good to be true .
    Her contact number is now 02033934252 and Quinton Hale’s address is Calle Los Juncos, 34 Marpuerta, 29640 Spain

    I was contacted by a Paul Davis from specialists on claims Gibraltar, saying he could get my money back after I was a victim of a scam by H C Mediators, at a cost of £900. Where do these people think we get all this money from, they can not have a conscience about what they do!

  5. Lorna says:

    Specialists on Claims contacted me. Said they could get money back from Excalibur,Ramirez and Ramirez, DWVC and TM Recovery Services on a no win no fee basis and then asked for £871.00 to cover Lawyer’s fee – Quinton Hale Associates S.L. in Fuengirola.
    I think this is another sc**.

  6. Pearl says:

    Been contacted by these people today, they are going to phone me tomorrow to see if i’m going ahead with the sale of a timeshare. The answer is definately no

  7. KB says:

    A Shelley Walters from SOC left her details on my phone. The only way she could have got these details were from my dealings with Inspirations, a company that had money off me for a timeshare resale that never happened. I look forward to her next call!

    This is the same tactics that S&B Associates used to con us out of money in 2011! I wonder if Mr Sharp or Sharpe is trading under this name now?
