The company Gemini Claims & Holdings has been on our cold caller list since October last year. But as we didn’t receive many inquiries about them, it even looked they ceased their activities.
But no, this week Gemini Claims have contacted already a lot of consumers out of the blue, and with a fantastic story about claims.
Gemini Claims seem to be focusing mainly on those consumers who bought into DWVC from ILG or paid money to bogus resale companies such as Half-moon Holdings, Excalibur, etc.
The agent from Gemini claims, Ms Sarah Paige, states that the company owners (father and son) have recently been jailed for timeshare fraud and that the Spanish authorities have transferred their money / assets to the UK along with a list of potential claimants for UK companies to handle the refunds.
Sarah Paige explains that they have a list of claimants and that as the case has been proved it is just a case of putting in a claim for a refund of between £14,000 to £18,000 with a possibility of 6% compound interest which could be added, they will take 7.5% as their fee and all is on a “no win no fee” basis.
No win No fee with a fee that is, because they ask for a payment up to £1200 supposedly to cover paralegal costs which will be refundable.
Gemini Claims & Holdings is actually registered with Company House with a classification of the company business as 96090 – “Other”
As far as we understand, this does not include anything associated with any legal or claims professions it includes companies such as Artist Models, Escort Agencies, Pet Grooming, Porters and Tattooists…
They have a website – http://www.geminiclaims.com/
Telephone: 0208 419 8821
Cold calls and a story about Spanish government or Courthouse passing money to the UK and a private company appointed to contact people for a claim and asking money upfront…it just doesn’t sound right!
If Gemini Claims, or Sarah Paige has approached you for a claim against ILG or a dubious timeshare resale company you paid in the past, please let us know.
