A new company by the name of Claim Support Line have started their call campaign since the beginning of June.
The agent from Claim Support Line presents the company as “brokers” who will find the appropriate lawyer for the consumer.
There is no explanation on where they obtained your personal and private information, with view on the GDPR Regulations.
The company Claim Support Line has a website http://www.claimsupportline.co.uk which was registered on the 9th of February this year. So they only have been around for about 6 months.
The domain name has been purchased for 1 year only, which seems to be strange as well for a company as normally they would take a domain for at least 3 to 5 years.
The actual website lacks all kind of information, and most important it lacks company information such as Companies House registration number which they are obligated to display. We searched at Companies House and were unable to find them registered.
Their address at 450 Brook Drive Green Park, Reading, RG2 6UU seems to be a virtual address.
Contact details are their telephone number 01183914996 or a contact form on the web, where there is no privacy statement.
There is no email address.
We cannot insist enough that cold calling is not a good sign, as this means the company doing these calls is in breach of the law, the data protection law.
Personal details, and membership details are not open to just anybody who wants to promote their business or refer you to a third party.
UK Solicitors registered with the SRA are not supposed to take on clients through cold calls, or use third party companies that cold call either.
If Claim Support Line has contacted you already from 0118 391 4996 we would like to hear from you.
