A few consumers reported about recent cold calls from a company by name Liberty Chase who present themselves as liquidators.
The agents from Liberty Chase inform the consumer that their timeshare or holiday club membership has been sold, that the Spanish courts have awarded them with compensation for the extra payments they had made over the years, and that the money for all this will be sent to their bank account.
The reports we received spoke about amounts of £11000 to £15000 to recuperate.
Sounds good? Too good maybe…
There is just one little problem: the consumer has to pay first a guarantee bond of £1800!
Why should one have to pay such a guarantee bond for monies that supposedly have been ordered by a court to be paid to the consumer, if this was the case?
We have said it many times, there are no such court cases where monies and compensations have been awarded to consumers without themselves knowing this first.
If there was really such a court case about a particular company that has defrauded consumers, then the court will logically contact first all affected consumers to get as much evidence together for the court case. Consumers would never be contacted afterwards with the fabulous news that there is money for them.
And if there was a court case where assets of a fraudulent company were seized and monies are paid out to those victims who had officially made a report with the police and the authorities, there would be no money asked as a guarantee bond!
Actually we were unable to find any company registered in the UK on the name Liberty Chase, they do not seem to be keen on sending out any information by e-mail, and there is no further information found that would help to identify this as a regular and genuine company, we can only recommend being very careful and certainly not to make any payments when you are approached by the agents from Liberty Chase with this or a similar promise.
If you were contacted by Liberty Chase, we would like to hear from you!
