A complete new cold caller has started really strong this week. The name of the company is Bronfman and Fritton Legal.
They are cold calling timeshare consumers with yet again a very dubious pitch about claims, awarded money, resale of the Timeshare membership and “please send us a fee and we release the money”.
We heard it all before, and as with all the others, again this Bronfman and Fritton seems to be a very dubious company and certainly to be treated with extreme caution.
They don’t have a website, and the email address they use to submit emails to consumers is firstname.lastname@example.org
They quote a Companies House registration (06701040) but we were unable to trace this number and neither could we find a company with any name like Bronfman & Fritton or similar.
Contact number is: 0203 7402661 or 0203 1371949 and their address as on their paperwork: Suite 26, 22 Notting Hill, London W11 3JE
As mentioned above, they pretend in their calls that they have a buyer for the timeshare membership or that the consumer has been awarded money through a court claim.
But in order to get this money released, first the consumer will have top ay a fee. This fee is around the £750
Most unusual thing is though, that when a consumer says no to this “fabulous” opportunity, they send an email with a document stating the following: “ We understand that you do not wish to receive the refund of £2X,XXX due to yourselves for your own specific reasons.”
Then they ask the consumer to sign a disclaimer with several points among which the consumer declares “We also understand that we may not engage a third party to claim this refund in the future.” And “We the undersigned agree that we have read the Company Disclaimer and hereby relinquish my rights to obtain the refund amounting to £2X,XXX due to us.”
Surely this is meant to scare off those consumers who maybe have a doubt this all might be true….and after reading such “serious” disclaimer may still chose to pay them the fees…
PLEASE do NOT pay Bronfman and Fritton Legal any money!

Two calls from B & F. First from a Jillian Knox informing me that I had been awarded approx. £5600 from “the courts?” but need a Spanish NIE number before money could be transferred, Obviously not paid.
Second call from Julie Dawson informing me that I had been awarded £24212 “settlement” but would need to pay “translation” fees of £686.72. Money would then be brought to my door by a Bank Draft passed to me a Jodie McCarthy. Certain papers would then have to signed. Have heard no more from B&F and impossible to contact both of these ladies as the answering machine gives a strange message that the “person on ext. no. 2502849 is not available”
No monies paid.
Ann says. I have had a telephone call at 5.15 to-day 4/5/17 to say I am due £47542 if i send £4754 to a B A Burns and details of a Bank account. I have a suspicion that this man who said he was a William James, was a person who has previously taken money off me and calling himself Mr.James Cox..
Just got the same sort of cold call from Ann Wells of B&F, with the address and telephone number shown above, saying i have been awarded £12,500.
All I have to do is pay court fees of £1,650 to Mr. R. P. Lemon at Halifax Bank sort code 11-00-54 a/c no. 01498279 and I’ll get my money in 24 hours. Looking it up, the account details given are the BIRKENHEAD Payment Clearing Services, P.O. Box 101, W.Yorks., HX3 0TA, Halifax England.
Evidently, if I don’t accept it then they give the money back, but couldn’t say to who.
Started to get pretty ratty with me when I said I wanted to check it out first. Took all of 2 minutes to find this page (mainly because I’m slow at typing!!)
Somehow, I don’t think I’ll be doing it!! Another scam I’m sure….
I got a call other day from Bronfman and Fritton saying I have been awarded £14.500 from the claims court they asked me to pay £1800 court fees to release the money I said no give me money first then will pay court fees she said she doesn’t no how long they can keep money for so that tells a story alone.
