Claims companies seem to be very popular at the moment, everybody offers claims, everybody has had already many successful claims and almost everybody needs you to travel to a meeting place or want to visit you at home.
This time we have Claim Traders, and they are not different from all the others in this matter and surprisingly identical to a company called Claim Tracers about whom we posted a blog article in November 2017.
The website from Claim Traders– www.claimtraders.co.uk –was registered at the end of April 2018, which means not even a month ago at the time of writing this blog article.
That seems a very short time for a company telling consumers they had many successful claims already…
Contact details are: firstname.lastname@example.org per the website, which apart from this email does not offer any telephone number.
Neither are there any further company details on the web such as Companies House registration or at leas tan office address.
Their offer from Claim Traders is compensation claim on a no win no fee basis. 30% if the action is successful including all taxes and VAT.
Funny enough, the person who cold calls, who certainly is not a legal professional of any kind, can already tell the consumer how much the claim will be and insists decisions have to be made quickly as the “claim date” is closing soon.
In order to join one of their many successful claims, the consumer will have to receive a “ senior claims advisor” at home who will complete the “EVI”.
EVI is an extended verification of identity, and all titleholders of the timeshare should be present at the meeting with their Passports to identify themselves correctly.
They state the claim will be based on mis selling. So even before actually knowing the consumer’s story or having seen the paperwork, they already know what the claim will be about and how much he can claim. Interesting!
(Especially taking in mind that in all this process no qualified lawyer or solicitor has been involved so far.)
In spite of what is confirmed by Claim Traders in their email and on the phone, the small print on the website mentions that Claim Traders are a web based service, introducing you specialist companies and their services within the timeshare and holiday club claims sector.
So how can the person calling from Claim Traders make statements about amounts to claim and how the claim will be done, if they are a purely intermediary?
When submitting your details to Claim Traders with how many companies will they share your contact details? How many companies will be calling you as from there onwards?
