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?

I was cold called May 25 with the promise to reclaim about $100k for mis-selling my weeks.
They informed me that their success rate was over 92%.
The catch however was that I would have to relinquish my weeks to show I was unhappy in the contract.
No doubt the next stage – I am guessing based on a previous similar experience – would be to add up the annual maintenance fees due over the next 20 years and for 50% of this total they would get me out of my contract.
Then they would pursue a claim for the original capital which I doubt they would so a total sc**.
Not a chance and surprisingly no information was received as promised by email.
Hopefully they got the message.
j’aimerais bien savoir ce que’est devenue la société ORGANICA basée à Tenerife qui m’avait proposé un rachat de ma semaine a un prix défiant toute concurrence. Je leur ai mis dernièrement un mail pour leur demander “où en était la vente que je leur avait mis entre les mains” et ce même mail m’est revenu “inconnu” donc l’arnaque était bien là et c’était un certain Monsieur Alexandre. Les courriers par contre étaient signés par un certain Thierry Bertrand Merci de votre réponse.
Hello, I have had dealing with Silverpoint and used Reclaimgc to try to get my money back. They claim a lot of success against Silverpoint in the Spanish Courts but there is never any mention of clients getting their money back. Is there any use in pursuing my claim through Reclaimgc? Best regards, John
I’ve been trying to get of Silverpoint for 10 years now and am worried that Nancy Claphouer and the Reservations dept. for Club Paradiso has moved out of Tenerife to Dubai, I think I will contact her but do not have any hopes of getting any of the £110,000.00 I have spent so far.
