More dubious cold callers on the list this month. The company on the phone uses the name of European Claims, which is quiet confusing as there are more companies using the same name.
Looks like they running short of original company names.
Strangely the caller from European Claims or EC seems to know about all the companies the consumer on the phone has dealt with in the past and with who he lost money.
The initial call is to tell the consumer that there has been a court claim against the fraudulent companies and money has been awarded by a judge to all the victims. So EC is now calling them to bring the good news.
But there seems to be some inconsistencies in what they are telling in the first call and the fact the consumer has to pay the fee linked to petitions to the court. Which is a single fee that is going to cover all the claims against several of the dubious companies that have been submitted together.
But on a second call they then tell the consumer that if EC finds evidence of the consumer being victims of other scams, those claims could be added to the existing one and no further fees would be due.
So was the claim awarded already or is there still a claim to be done??
The amounts they say that have been recovered for the consumer are around the £22,000 and the money is waiting to be paid out to them. But of course they want £1500 (including VAT) first from the consumer to get the claim in front of a judge in court.
The fee needs to be paid by bank transfer into the account of a Spanish company by the name of: Ayudar y Soluciones por Compra Venta SL
EC says this is an escrow account.
The phone number for EC is: 0034 602 424 181 which is a Spanish mobile.
Please note that there is no such thing as court claims coming up or done on behalf of victims of scams, where the victim has no knowledge at all about this and certainly has not got any legal representative appointed or anything.
