Claims Advice Bureau and the mystery of the Green Membership certificate…

The company Claims Advice Bureau, supposedly based in Middlesex has started this week doing some strange cold calls.

The initial call comes from an agent stating they work for Claims Advice Bureau and instead of really explaining what the call is about or what kind of service or item they have on offer, the only thing they say is that there will be a follow up call.

The follow up call is done a day or two later, and this time the agent presents himself as John Parker of A&S Claims Management.

Mr. Parker has an amazing story to say the least, because he brings the news that there is a substantial cheque waiting in the amount of £20.800 ready for dispatch to the Consumer on the same day today as long as he can present his “green Club Class membership certificate”.

Mr. Parker asks the Consumer to find the “green” certificate, as this will allow him to send off the cheque.

Obviously nobody seems to have a GREEN certificate from Club class.

When calling back and telling Mr. Parker that unfortunately the certificate is missing the consumer is passed to yet again another person of A&S Claims Management, the director Mrs. Remington.

Mrs Remington explains again that there is £20,000 waiting for the consumer, but because the Consumer does not have the correct certificate he will have to pay “a bond for the trustees” of £2,000.

How does that sound? Calls out of the blue, substantial cheques written out in your name, the missing Green certificate and just pay the bond and you get the cheque…

Please be careful with cold callers because these people really think consumers will believe anything!

The only contact details known so far are the telephone numbers for each company;

Claims Advice Bureau: 0203 5820593

A&S Claims Management 01926 800169

    I had a call from A &S Claims Management Ltd. their address given as Fulford House,Newbold Terrace, Leamington Spa CV32 4EA Company registration no 08213557. This checks out online. The caller stated I would get a follow up call but I haven’t done so far. I am assuming they will be asking for money for no outcome.
