A new cold caller has appeared on the scene by WDL Services.
This company cold calls timeshare consumers and explain to them that the consumer is due money from court claims in Spain.
These supposed claims were against companies that have defrauded the consumer in the past and now WDL Services has been instructed by the Spanish government to liaise with the consumer on how they can obtain the awarded money.
Surprisingly there is no such company as WDL Services, and the email received as a follow up on this call is sent from a Gmail account (!) firstname.lastname@example.org
The agent on the phone calls herself Patricia Earnshaw, and the number used is a UK landline: 01704 7761XX
On the email or document, they send through there is no company information, no address, no nothing, all you get is the name WDL Services.
Obviously getting the money from this claim is not as straight forward as you would hope. Soon it becomes clear the consumer needs a TIE number and guess what? WDL Services can help you to obtain this!
A service you must pay for of course! Nobody works for free…
Have we heard it all before?
Please, if you get this bogus company WDL Services on the phone, ask them to delete your number from their records and hang up.
If you have been approached already by WDL Services, do let us know.
