Leyland Marketing Consultants another cold calling “Appointment Setter”

We have already many names for companies claiming to be sole “Appointment Setters” for other companies, and Leyland Marketing Consultants is one more to complete the list.

The contact details for this company are: telephone number 0121 314 3990

Website: www.leylandmarketingconsultants.co.uk and Email: admin@leylandmarketingconsultants.co.uk or info@leylandmarketingconsultants.co.uk

This cold calling marketing company pretends to be acting on behalf of different legal companies, and the agent calling discusses the claim as if they have a certain legal qualification.

In the follow up email they send out to the consumers after the initial cold call, Leyland Marketing Consultants states the following:” We here at Leyland Marketing Consultants are a claims validation consultancy, whose role is to establish which timeshare and point owners are eligible for compensation, due to the mis-selling of timeshares. We are predominantly dealing with Time Share members for the potential breach in their contracts…”

But on their website they actually don’t mention anything of the above at all! This is how they explain who they are: “From Leyland Marketing Consultants we offer an honest and ethical approach to sales and marketing but at the same time ensuring that persuasion and influence tactics are used to their fullest. With over of 50 years of combined marketing experience at the head of the company, we know how to make your business the best it can be.”

Both calls and follow up emails are very similar to the pitches we have seen before from other companies, and surprisingly all consumers have their claim validated as possible.

No consumer has ever been turned down!

The supposed claim to recover the money paid to the timeshare resort will be on a 25%/75% split and in order to join this claim the consumer needs to attend a meeting.

As always we recommend consumers to be extra cautious when receiving cold calls from companies stating they are legal professionals or connected to legal companies.

If you have been invited to this meeting already by Leyland Marketing Consultants please let us know.

    We are ex-directory, subscribed to the TPS and despite this AND making a previous complaint about Leyland Consultants, we have received two calls from them in the last two days. They seem to call from different numbers (all with Birmingham area code), so I am adding each to the blocked list as they come in. Most of the time there’s no message left, but today “Joanne” did leave a message asking to call back about recovering money regarding missold timeshare.
    I know it’s not a huge deal in the great scheme of things, but what does bother me is how our number has got into the public domain.
    I’ve made another complaint to TPS, but seriously doubt it will make any difference.

    After fending off Leyland Marketing Consultancy and Edwards Consultancy (same company – see previous posts) in July,I have today received another call from Leyland despite threatening legal action. I will be reporting them to TPS and Ofcom as they are clearly breaking the law and ignoring requests not to call again.

    Beware of these companies as they are only marketing agencies trying to drum up business for local law firms who will NOT provide a free service despite being advised to the contrary.

    I have just been called by Rebecca from Leyland Marketing Consultants. She has sent me an email with details of the Company and its activities, and wants me to go to Coventry to attend a Meeting to discuss claiming from our resort for illegal and misleading timeshare selling. Thank you for the service you provide.
