Over the past couple of months, Inside Timeshare has been receiving many enquiries regarding money held by the courts for “victims” of Eze Group. As we know Dominic O’Reilly, Stephanie O’Reilly and Eze Europe Ltd are due in Birmingham Crown Court on 21 March for sentencing.
The latest firm to appear with calls telling “victims” they have been appointed by the High Court to contact them to ensure that they receive the money due to them is Money Advice Limited.
This company is newly registered at Company House, being incorporated only on 30 January 2019, so it is not even 2 months old. Company Registration Number 11796746 with the registered address:
The registered director is Joshua Rice, born April 1989, with the occupation of Financial Consultant. Also registered at the same address. He has no links to any other directorship or company on Company House records.
The address is one that is owned by Regus PLC, one of the largest office space providers. Part of their service includes rental of office and conference facilities by the day and virtual offices. The Virtual office facility provides a business address at a prime location, call answering service and mail handling. So a very convenient way to provide a company such as Money Advice Limited with the cover of legitimate company.
According to our information Money Advice Limited is contacting customers of Eze Group and Regency Shores SL and informing them they are working directly with the courts. That only Money Advice Limited will be able to recover the money paid by the customer. As we know, the courts do not use third party or private companies to contact “victims”.
If during any investigation by the Police, Trading Standards or any other authority, they discover “potential victims” of fraud, it is they who would make contact. They would then be asking for information and statements in order to facilitate their inquiry into the alleged fraud.
So the question arises, how has Money Advice Limited got hold of customer details, knowing what they have purchased and for how much?
The only answers are very simple, either they are ex-employees of the company and have stolen the customer records, or they have purchased them from another ex-employee.
So along with Claims Assistance Bureau Limited and other companies, Money Advice Limited is using genuine court cases to defraud people who have already lost a great deal in the original purchase.
As we have already highlighted, Claims Assistance Bureau Limited, have hijacked a genuine company name to make their calls, all to give them credibility. (see link below)
