A new cold caller has been brought to our attention by the name of Regal Finance Company.
A lady called Emma Robinson from the “Security and Fraud Prevention” department explains to the consumer a claim has taken place against companies that defrauded him in the past, and money has been awarded through the court.
Emma from Regal Finance states that funds are available for distribution, the details are as follows:
- £14,500.00 (buyback value of membership)
- £2,500.00 (Fees refunded)
- £7,500.00 (Compensation)
- £24,500.00 (Total)
But guess what? In order to complete the above transfer it is necessary for legal fees to be paid. These legal fees are a 10% of the awarded amount. But of course who moans about a 10% when you have the promise to receive the rest amount of the other 90%?
Unfortunately the fees cannot be deducted from the awarded money though, so the consumer needs to pay them fist and then Regal Finance will send the money.
Although Regal Finance Company say they are a registered company and provide details to proof so, the contact details of the “real” company don’t seem to coincide at all with the contact details provided by the caller.
Telephone number used by the cold calling Regal Finance is 01273 358 408 and they use an email address RegalFinance@consultant.com
As pointed out with other dubious companies, the fact they don’t have a domain name and use Gmail, consultant.com, client.com, email.com etc., is already something that should make alarm bells ring.
Please be careful when receiving this call from Emma or any other employee of “Regal Finance Company” sustaining you have money awarded and need to pay fees upfront.
If you have spoken to them already, please do let us know.
