Ridgeway Advisory Consultants, from account holders to cold callers


The name Ridgeway Advisory Consultants has been mentioned over the past years in different inquiries.

In most inquiries, they showed up as the account holders for money that was requested by different companies.

The latest ones being International Clearance and Oficina Judicial Andalucía

But they must have thought this was all too long-winded and too many people in between, so now we have Ridgeway Advisory Consultants cold calling consumers directly.

Different agents contact consumers. One of the agents is Victoria Phillips who on the first call inquires if the consumer has had dealings with a certain company. If the consumer says yes, Victoria explains that Ridgeway is reclaiming lost monies for a group of affected consumers. The consumer can join this group by paying £800.00 to cover Paralegal fees.

After some time a Mathew Carrington rings to tell the consumer they are in a group of 40 other consumers and they should be awarded £20.000, which should be paid to them in several week’s time.

Now they have the final amount the consumer is going to receive, he is expected to pay their 11% fee of £2200 including VAT, minus the £800,00 paid already.

But as always things are not that straight forward as expected. Mathew Carrington calls again after a week and explains to the consumer they can expect a call from the accounts/legal department from  John Wallace to organise finalisation.

But John Wallace has another request for money; this time it is for Spanish Gift Tax £2,500 including VAT.

Please note this is all a fraud. There is no such thing as group claims against holiday companies you can just join by agreeing over the telephone and sending a copy of the utility bill and passport.

Contact details for Ridgway Advisory consultants are:

Email: info@ridgewayadvisoryconsultants.com & rwilliamsridgewayac@mail.uk Telephone 0203 150 2261

Website: http://www.ridgewayadvisoryconsultants.com On the website there is nothing that indicates they are lawyers or anything near to that.

One of the supposed claims is against ILG/DWVC; this company went into liquidation in January 2011. It makes no sense at all to tell people there are claims against this company. There is nothing left! And certainly not payments to consumers of around 20k.

If Ridgeway Advisory Consultants has contacted you with a similar story, please do let us know.
