A dubious cold caller is active in the past weeks under the name of Reclaim Assistance.
It seems to be yet another case of a dubious set up using the name of a genuine UK Companies House registered company, but in reality they have NOTHING to do with the registered company.
They copy the address, quote their registration number, and even copy the logo on the paperwork.
This all for the sole purpose of misleading and confusing the consumer.
The agent from the supposed “legal department” of Reclaim Assistance cold calls the consumer and comes up with a fantastic story of money recovered through the court on behalf of the consumer.
In order to proof this awarded money Reclaim Assistance send official looking documents from the Spanish courts. On these documents it mentions that Reclaim Assistance on behalf of the consumer (with full name) has been awarded an amount of money, which will be paid out to the consumer.
Strange of course that Reclaim Assistance seems to have been working on the consumer’s case for over a year without the consumer even knowing!
The contact details of this (fake) Reclaim Assistance are:
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org and telephone 08447749993
Although they pretend to be in the UK when emailing them the automated reply is in Spanish.
And to retrieve the awarded money from the courts, the consumer is asked to pay legal / admin fees through a “European Central Bank” which turns out to be a bank branch of a spanish bank on the Costa del Sol…
Please be careful with companies such as this fake Reclaim Assistance calling you out of the blue with fantastic stories of recovered money on your behalf through Spanish courts.
Unfortunately all these calls end up being fake and those who pay the “fees” to get their compensation are left behind without the money.
Have you been speaking to any “legal” person from (fake) Reclaim Assistance on telephone 0844 774 9993?
Please let us know and please do not pay them!
