Platinum Services and Administration, cold callers with the old story about Compensation claims…

Sometimes you just wonder if they really think people are still falling for this.

But we suppose they do…

If not why would a company like Platinum Services and Administration start a cold calling campaign to ILG/ DWVC and Club Class members?

The cold call from Platinum Services and Administration is regarding the company Incentive Leisure Group (ILG) or Club Class. The caller from Platinum Services and Administration explains to the consumer that they can get their money back through the courts in Malaga.

The caller assures it will be a no win no claim but then also explains that there is a 10% commission charge with an upfront cost of £339 which if the claim is won, the consumer would get back.

So how do they think a no win no fee works?

Platinum Services and Administration is a recently set up company (November 2018) with address at Calle Lope de Vega, 60, 29631 Arroyo de la Miel, Benalmádena, Málaga, Spain.

Telephone number: 0034 951122027 and 0034 951122320

Email: admin@platinumservicesandadministration.com

A follow up email is received from a lady called Brigid O’Sullivan. That seems to be a familiar name to those who have been contacted by Litigation services in the past.

That could be a coincidence, but looking at the website from www.platinumservicesandadministration.com you can see this is an exact copy of the website from www.litigationservices.es and it looks like they could be the same people.

As mentioned previously in other blogs, cold calls are not really a good sign.

With the current law on data protection anybody cold calling you should come up with a very good explanation on how they got your personal and private details.

And no, we can assure you there is no such thing as an open register where your name is published for companies to take note! Or Clerks at court houses providing lists of names.

The company ILG went into liquidation in the January 2011, after the sudden dead in a traffic accident of the owner in August 2010.

Club Class stopped selling over 7 years ago, and most of the Club Class companies have been wound up.

There are no court claims and no companies are instructed by courts or governments to approach people out of the blue offering to join these “claims”.

If Platinum Services and Administration has contacted you already please do let us know.

    I was contacted by Amelia Reynolds from Platinum Services and Administration S.L with a no win no fee story but then had to pay a fee of 289 plus tax to reregister the claim as a civil claim in the Malaga courts. This was for Eze group collapse and they say I was guaranteed money back and then they invoice me for their 10% commission after I receive it. They sent me a few documents which tried o answer some of the scam questions to convince me they were genuine. Names on letters were from Edith Summer and Rebecca Lawrence, senior claims advisor. I spoke with Amelia and she sounded very convincing and not hard sell. Having googled various Eze group links it all looks very suspicious. Has anyone paid the commission fee by visa yet? Thanks Mick.

    I have been contacted from Edith Summer and Catriona Hannington regarding Instant Access, all sounds plausible, other than the fact I know that asset tracing failed to find a pot of gold from Jim Moore to compensate investors. So why now this pot of money in Spain happens to appear…

    • Chris says:

      Hi yes I too am in the midst of a so called compensation claim through the court in Malaga re Instant Access my contact is indeed Catriona Hannington how did the get all my info?
      yesterday i got the rub aka send us 1250 pounds to process your claim court cost, notary, and translator. after smelling a rat i found you guys and confronted her over the phone she told me this site is the con and they are getting an injunction to close it down regards Chris

    Rebecca Lawrence contacted us about Instant Access Properties. When the letters came through, she guaranteed that the 1600 euro fee would be won back, which set alarm bells ringing. It does seem to be an elaborate scam for a relatively small sum – many phone calls and emails. Have declined further contact

    • Tony says:

      I too have been contacted by Rebecca Lawrence about Instant Access Properties. The suggestions made were that I could be in line for substantial compensation through the courts, in excess of £80k. In order to proceed I would need to pay a refundable upfront fee of 1,756 euros.

      • Feza says:

        Hi Tony . I have also been in touch with Rebecca Lawrence and told my claim would be 69,000 pounds but will have to pay 2000 towards the filing of the court papers. I’ve told her of similar stories without success and was in no position to throw more money at it and would willingly pay more in commission but no money up front.
        What was the outcome of your dealings with Rebecca

    • Neil says:

      Hi Julian, I too have been in contact with Rebecca Lawrence and have asked many questions and in most part have had them answered, except for not being able to contact anybody that has won! and I too think its quite elaborate for such a small amount of money in my case 1600 euros, what do we all think? is it worth a punt or leave well alone?

    Hi Petra, Kathy MacDonald went from Litigation Services to Platinum without batting an eyelid. She was probably sitting in the same chair. Don
