Cold Caller Alert for Audit and Consulting Services!


This new cold caller by the name Audit and Consulting Services has been spotted recently calling from 0843 886 6749. But their pitch seems very familiar and not that recent.

Audit and Consulting Services claims to be based in London, UK. They even appear to be a registered company, although there is reasonable doubt to think that the person calling has in fact nothing to do with the (real) registered company.

Contact persons are Harry Jones and Emma Smith.  They say they are working with the Chinese government because money is being laundered out there by fraudulent companies. Companies the Timeshare owner has been dealing with in the past and who now have been arrested and face prosecution later this year.

Audit and Consulting Services requests the consumer to make a payment of £1,750 in order to release seized assets. After this release a payment will be delivered at the home of the consumer after about 5 days by a courier. This courier will require to take pictures of all the consumer’s documentation to help with the prosecutions.

The payment is to be made through Western Union to YIDONG ZHANG in China. Audit and Consulting Services assure the consumer that the money they pay will be insured in case they don’t receive what they paid for. (?)  They can even reconfirm this by calling “Western Union Corporate Services” on 0203 3181 060. On this number the consumer will be given a tracking number and can verify that Audit & Consulting Services have an account no. ASC 55239 and have a Level   licence.

The above sounds all much elaborated and almost believable, but when you look at the fact that the number of Western Union is NOT A WESTERN UNION phone number, and that there are no assets seized in China or anywhere in the world to be released against payment…

If you have been approached by Audit & Consulting Services from 08438866749 or any other company with a similar story about company’s assets seized in faraway countries and money to be released against payments by Western Union or other payment methods, please do let us know.

    Hi Recent contact has been made by Jo Millar at http://www.Timeshare enforcement but when I mentioned Mindtimeshare they have suddenly gone quiet. Are you aware of them? Are they legit? or are they another load of cold calling con-artists? They appear to be phoning from London too. Keep up the good service. Thanks Dave
