Harwood Jones Consulting (www.harwoodjonesconsulting.com and harwoodjones.org.uk) appears to be a new name on the cold caller list, but when researching their way of acting it seems only to be the name that is new.
Their pitch, their emails, their invitations and their paperwork are all the same as we have seen before from other companies. Companies, which “coincidentally” stopped cold calling at the same time as Harwood Jones Consulting started their campaign.
One of these companies is Anderson Read Consultancy, about whom we wrote an article in October this year, and who claimed to be calling on behalf of RSB legal.
Harwood Jones Consulting also claim they are calling on behalf of RSB Legal, and surprise surprise they invite people to the same place in Redditch as Anderson Read!
These meetings take several hours, and most of the time is of course spent on convincing the consumer how they have been “mis sold” and how they can claim back all the money they paid to the timeshare company.
The claim they offer against the timeshare resort would be on a no-win, no-fee basis with precedes split 70:30 for the consumer.
In addition to reclaiming a refund of the costs, RSB Legal offers also to relinquish the timeshare contract but this would involve a fee (~£10,000!).
The consumer can pay £1000 on the day and the balance in 10 days following the agreement. They do mention these costs could be included in the claim as well, so this would be “recovered” in the end.
As you can see, same story, same place, and no doubt, the same people.
If Harwood Jones Consulting has approached you as well on a cold call for a meeting invitation with RSB Legal, then please do let us know.
