The strange call from the “self employed” financial advisor from Tenerife

We are not sure if this is a case where the people behind this set up have run out of names or creativity, or if this is an attempt to confuse consumers even more.

But we are receiving a lot of inquiries about phone calls, cold calls from so-called “self-employed financial advisors” who pretend to be working out of Tenerife and offering claims.

The claim offered is yet again a No win No fee claim where the consumer will be claiming a refund through the bank of the money paid towards a timeshare membership.

The “financial advisor” offers the consumer a free week’s accommodation in Tenerife, during which the consumer will be meeting with the claims advisor.

The claims advisor will process the paperwork to complete a claim against the Bank.

As far as the caller concerns the bank should be considered liable for lack of diligence in allowing the consumer to make a payment abroad to pay for a timeshare which was part of a fraudulent setup.

Incredible but true, the financial advisor also indicates that this claim will only take 1 hour to complete, and the consumer will receive a refund from their bank within 60 days.

Whilst the consumer is offered a free week and all this service apparently for free, he will only have to pay a 20% of the refunded money once the bank has transferred this into their account.

The reason to have this all sorted in Tenerife is because this is Tax-wise more favorable as the consumer won’t be charged any tax over the refunded amount.

Sounds incredible, and obviously, it is!

Nonsense about a bank being liable because consumers buy into a timeshare, claims processed in 1 hour, and payouts in 60 days without tax charges.

And not only does this sound incredible, it also sounds extremely familiar.

Although these “financial advisors” don’t seem to be willing to give out a company name, the strange thing is that their own name is very familiar already and used with previous dubious cold callers.

So far we have the following people calling:

Daisy Lewis email:             Phone:0845 621 3304

James Paterson email:     Phone:0845 621 3304

Trish Farrell email:                Phone 0034 911 436 867

Bill:                                             Phone:0845 621 3304

Luz Periz:                                   Phone:0845 621 3304

Fiona McGregor:

Daryl South                           Phone:0845 621 3304

Christina Ward

Sally Smith                                                                                           Phone; 08450950143

For sure that consumers who were contacted by companies such as Island Breaks, Claim your Claim or Refund My funds recognize the names!

And the pitch, because that is exactly the same as well.

They didn’t even bother to change the follow up email and simply changed the email and telephone number, but the text is a copy and paste job.

Please don’t fall for this “tempting” free week in Tenerife with just 1 hour of your time filling in forms…. because it is just not going to happen!

If you want to know what is really going to happen you should read the article we posted with the complete description from a consumer who attended this meeting:
