One of the latest cold callers detected is TOMA Thomson Services.
This company cold calls consumers to inform them that there has been a successful claim against their Holiday club, which the Consumer did not know anything about, and they have been awarded money.
Ava Hoffman of TOMA Thomson Services explains to the Consumer that the money of this compensation award is held in an Escrow account with the Santander Bank in Spain.
In order for the Consumer to receive his part of the awarded money he will have to pay the VAT charge (IVA in Spain) and that is around £1000.
Strange enough this Spanish tax needs to be paid into a British bank account, which will go to Official Receiver.
The money awarded to the consumer will then be paid within 21 working days.
Ava Hoffman is using two different Telephone numbers, which are 03301240310 and 020334750256.
Ava does not send emails; she does all the talking, bank accounts and official notifications by telephone. How weird is that?
A clear connection between TOMA Thomson Servicesand dubious companies active in the past has been established.
Please be very careful when receiving (cold) calls from Ava Hoffman from TOMA Thomson Services, as there is no truth at all in this story of compensation payments, class actions. Etc.
Once paid the supposed VAT / IVA we can assure you that you won’t see a penny back.

My mum and dad just had a call from this lot. My mum phoned my asap when my dad was still on the phone to double check the company. Thomson Law Ltd who are based at 207 Regent Street, London. Looked up the address and this is a mailing address used by companies so told them it would guaranteed be yet another scam. Karen Jones was the person who phoned. She wanted £895 up front to secure the payment of £15,000 that my parents were due. My dad said No, as he wasn’t willing to pay this amount up front. She phoned back after “speaking to her boss” and lowered the amount to £495. My mum said no again. Karen said that my mum needs to sign a letter than will be getting sent out to say that they don’t want the money but they won’t be signing anything and to be honest, we doubt that it’ll even get sent out. I found your blog and phoned them back asap to let them know so thanks for the posts and please keep us all updated on these scammers. Its shocking that they get away with it.
This looks familiar to Diamond Consulting who have contacted me
My mum recently had a call from them saying she maybe owed money.they gave her the details of the company etc,so I just checked online and came across this post.so thanks to you for putting our minds at ease! How do they manage to get away with doing stuff like this,vile people
I received a call from Eve Hoffman and fell for her very convincing call re time share.
I thought I had covered my back but she was so convincing.Hope she can sleep at night.These people are monsters prying on the elderly.
I’ve also had conversations with Jenny Wilson. She is very convincing and, even after I told her I had reported her to Action Fraud and the appropriate Banking departments she still persisted and called back with “updates on progress”.
Emails and texts to the company director as per ‘Companies House’ have yet to receive a response. It is perfectly feasible that she is unaware of the events.
The Holding account being used is in the name of Miss Hanna Lawton with ‘ACF Financial Bank’

Received a call from a Jenny Wilson who said it was Thomson Law LTD, phone number 0203 4750256, Registration Number 09119648. This is the same number for Toma Thomson! I told her to send for the money but have not given her any account details. When I telephoned the number given it stated an unknown extension number for me to leave a message, which I have, which is just to call me back. She did state at the time that all was ok as they were based in London and had to behave! Also, they only wanted four hundred and ninety five pounds, not thousands like the others!! Thanks for the heads up confirming it’s a scam, they won’t get a penny from me. Keep up the good work.
Received a call from this number with a very similar story. Now using the name Melanie Cooper. Thanks for the warning.
