There seems to be a lot of cold calls going on lately to old Club Class members promising the recovery of the money paid for their membership.
One of the most recent cold callers is Melbury Green, supposedly based in London.
They seem to have cleverly copied the name and address details of a real existing Investment company which obviously has nothing to do with the cold callers, but it does the trick to confuse consumers.
The caller from this fake Melbury Green is a lady called Juliet Henshaw.
Ms. Henshaw explains the consumer that they can recover the money paid to Club Class through a court claim they are doing with a lawyer in Spain, Mr. Diego Sanchez.
In order to join the court-claim the consumer will need to pay several fees:
Handling fee of £595
A legal fee for the lawyer Mr. Diego Sanchez £649
The actual court costs £622
And a fee to process an NIE number request (Spanish Tax registration number for foreigners) to allow Funds to be sent, without paying 35% Tax.
The good news is that the NIE number can be obtained by Melbury Green in 1 day for £819
Strange thing is that the payment of the handling fee would not go to Melbury Green but to a company called Enterprise Conversions, which is a company that is dedicated to “Maintenance and repairs of motor vehicles” as per their Companies House registration.
Contact details provided for (the fake) Melbury Green are:
Telephone 0207 193 1412 which seems to be the number for Mr. Oliver Dixon who is the “accountant”.
And an Email: firstname.lastname@example.org which is a free server email account which you can set up in 2 minutes.
Please note that there are no court claims against Club Class and if you would do a court claim you would be doing that with a genuine Spanish lawyer and not with a company registered as repair of motor vehicles in the UK.
The nonsense of arranging an NIE number which you can do for free with the Spanish consulate, is another excuse to get money from innocent consumers.
