An alert goes out for a company that calls themselves Keystone Solicitors and claims to be based in Coventry.
A Mr. Michael Phillips of Keystone Solicitors cold calls timeshare consumers with the news that they are going to refund the money paid by the timeshare consumer to a dubious resale company previously.
Keystone Solicitors gives as address; Queen Street, Coventry CV19 4PR and for contact the telephone number is 0247 632 0530
The story is that the solicitors are handling the case against the “dubious” resale company and the judge has ordered that the victims are to be paid back.
In order to get this money back the timeshare owner needs to pay a fee and this can be done at the local post office through Money Gram. The fee is £290. Once the consumer pays the fee, Michael Phillips will ring back to get the post office reference number and then he will arrange for a cheque to be delivered to the consumer’s house the next morning at 10 AM
Ringing the number 02476320530 you actually get a fax machine and calling the directory inquiries you will find out there is no such solicitor’s office at the mentioned address.
Is this a scam? You tell me!
Cold caller, knowledge of personal data and also information on previous dealings with other dubious companies, a payment by Money gram, a phone number that doesn’t work and an office that doesn’t exist!
