The tale from Talisman Finance and the lost money in China

Cold caller Talisman Finance is on a mission to help out timeshare consumers who have been duped by other companies in the past.

Never mind how long ago this fraud happened or what payment method was used. As Talisman Finance explains, the companies have been raided and the police have blocked all connected bank accounts.

Some of these bank accounts are based in foreign countries.

The agent from Talisman Finance who is calling from 0843 886 9163 has been appointed to contact the victims of these frauds and explain that exactly the money they paid, is the money which has been traced in China.


And good news indeed, this money can be recovered by the victim.

All the Timeshare consumer needs to do is to pay the relevant bank charges and taxes, which are obviously far less than the money which is waiting to be transferred. So what can you lose?

Although the payment is supposed to be for a bank and taxes are involved, the payment method is rather strange as the consumer is expected to pay through Western Union.

First the consumer should “register” with Western Union and this can be done through the phone by calling 0203 6089112. (This number is certainly not a number connected to Western Union!)

Once the payment has been done, the consumer will receive the money from the Chinese bank account at home through a Courier who will be delivering the cheques.

Do you smell the rat?

The above story certainly sounds very dubious and there is no such thing as money traced by the police and then recovered by the victims through paying fees by Western Union.

Please do NOT fall into this trap and certainly do NOT PAY any penny to this company or any cold caller with a similar story.

If you have been contacted by Talisman Finance about your money being held in China, then please let us know.
