A new strange cold calling company has been detected by the name of Claims Assistance Bureau.
Melanie Rhys is the agent calling and she is offering guaranteed claims for consumers who for example purchased from Regency Shores / Eze group.
Although Claims Assistance Bureau appears to be a company name registered with the UK Companies House, we have strong doubts that this real company is actually the one behind the cold caller.
An Outlook and Gmail account which is not normal for companies who usually have their own domain name.
In the email Mrs. Rhys assures once again that the money to be paid out to the consumer is already settled, and amazingly she doesn’t even need the paperwork of the consumer to do the claim.
In order to back up their offer they do another attempt to look even more “official” and state the following:
“We are now giving you not only our company guarantee but that too of our contractual and fiscal arrangements with the Bank of Spain, the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce and the High Court of Madrid. This means that all business is backed and covered by these three entities and ourselves. ”
So, this cold calling company from the UK with a Gmail account and court claims without paperwork, states the bank of Spain, the high Court in Madrid and the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce backs them up!
The last one making no sense at all, and we have no clue why they mention Portugal in all this…
Obviously Mel Rhys and her company Claims Assistance Bureau are not working for free. So before the consumer can receive his guaranteed money into his account they kindly ask for an upfront fee of £875
Do we need to say more?
Please be careful with any cold callers for as much as they appear to be registered or display fancy websites or official stamps on their emails and paperwork.
When receiving a cold call, always ask them how they obtained your personal and private details? How do they do what you purchased years ago and from who, and how much you paid?
These details should never ever be in possession of anybody, company or person you don’t know!
If Claims Assistance Bureau has approached you already by telephone from 02920099129, please let us know.
