International Clearance and your embargoed money

A new cold caller has been spotted by the name of International Clearance.

The agent Steven Packwood of International Clearance, stating he is based at Canary Wharf in London, advises consumers they are about to receive a large sum of money.

This money is the result from a successful group court case in the Spanish courts instigated by WTC, and which has now been sent into the UK for clearance out to the consumer.

For some reason the money has been blocked and in order to find out the reason why, the consumer is asked to call a Spanish lawyer called Rebecca Carlos on 0034 604 342 033

For sure Rebecca Carlos will know how to unblock the money.

Rebecca explains that an embargo is placed, as the consumer needs to pay a 10% tax over the awarded amount first.

This money needs to be paid by bank transfer into the UK bank account of a company called Ridgway Advisory Consultants.

Strange enough the same Ridgeway Advisory Consultants were the account holders for a similar transaction proposed by another bogus company called the Juzgado de Primera Instancia (First Instance Court) and about whom we placed a warning on our blog recently.

Telephone numbers used by Steven Packwood from International Clearance are 0203 6037660

And Rebecca Carlos the lawyer in Spain not only uses a Spanish mobile 0034604342033 but also a UK number 07906709956

Please note that in Spain there are no group court claims and if at all you would be included in a court claim you would have known before the hearing takes place and you would have appointed a lawyer to represent you.

Companies such as WTC Admin cannot be considered legal representatives, and as a matter of fact, they have gone into liquidation.

Not only is a cold caller untrustworthy, it is not normal they would know about your dealings with other bogus companies in the past and have details such as how much you paid these companies.

If you received a call from Steven Packwood from International Clearance, or maybe you spoke to any other similar company and was requested a payment into the account of Ridgeway Advisory Consultants, please do let us know.

    Good afternoon,
    i have written to you before regarding continued correspondence I still receive from various people ( nw Gr8 Stay) demanding money to cancel my contract which they say is still in place with Club Class Holidays and or Leisure Alliance. AS you have advised in the past i ignore these letters, but as I now have a substantial collection of them i was wondering if you would like any photocopies sent to you.
    pleased to hear either way.
    Brgds David
