Not always a company has to be a cold caller to recommend caution. We also do in those cases where we detect a website or publicity of companies that offer services related to Timeshare but don’t seem to be all that transparent.
This is the case of the website called www.TheClaimFinders.co.uk
The website has been registered only at the beginning of August and they have protected the names of the registrant, which is not something a genuine and normal company would do.
For a website which is only around 6 weeks old, the statement of “having helped thousands of clients who have had their cases upheld and have now been awarded millions of pounds in compensation” seems a bit exaggerated to say the least.
On the same website there is no mention at all about a company registration, no Companies House number, no address, nothing which is actually obligated by law for company websites.
There is no privacy statement or anything, so they don’t really promise they will protect your personal details if you happen to fill in their contact form.
A consumer who spoke to them though, told us that when he asked for their address the person on the phone said she could not provide these details in view of Data Protection!
In the small print they mention: “www.theclaimfinders.co.uk are a web-based service introducing you specialist companies and their services within the Timeshare and Holiday club claims sector. www.theclaimfinders.co.uk do not charge for this facility and are paid by the companies themselves. http://www.theclaimfinders.co.uk only refer people to No Win No Fee companies.”
Contact email is CLAIM@THECLAIMFINDERS.CO.UK and the person calling back after the initial inquiry send out to them is calling from telephone number: 0203 455 4602
Please when searching the web and running into websites like this, be careful with the information you fill in and provide to companies / people who are not duly identified.
Filling in forms like this can lead to receiving numerous cold calls throughout the years as your personal details can be passed from one to another.
If you had any dealings with The Claim Finders we would like to have your feedback.
