Hello, How did you learn of this company. What did they say that they could do for you, and how much money are they asking for up front from you in order to do it. There are things about this site that are suspicious and point towards scam. The first of this is that the company didn't purchase it's domain name until June 4, 2015, which means the company itself is less than 6 months old. The second is that it only registered its domain name for one year, the least amount of time one can reserve a domain for. When a new company starts making unsolicited contact to drum up business but they haven't set themselves up to stick around, that's not a very good sign. Also, although the site says it's located in Wales, its IP address traces to the US, which is irregular. You can see all of this at www.domaintools.com by running the company name through the WHOIS. Then, there's this: Look at TheClaimTeam's website here. And compare it to this one here. Identical twins? Nope. No legitimate company steals another's content like this. It's illegal. This one is also brand new, registered for only a year and traces to the US instead of the UK and though the supposed address is different, I'm sure the same people are behind it. The Claim Team is registered with Companies House, so to that extent it appears to be an active busness. But its history indicates that this was a dormant company by another namethat just changed its name and made up its arrears to show as active. I'm not convinced they are. It's worth a scammer's while to register a company while they are actively trying to get money and then let it go inactive. There is a problem with PBAs in the UK and a lot of people fell prey and lost money to less than honest salespersons. When that happens, what characteristically also happens is that unethical and/or unscrupulous folks come out of the woodwork to contact victims and try to defraud them all over again by claiming to be an outfit that can recover your money. I can't say with 100% certainty that they are not a legitimate company, but I am leaning in that direction as suspicious signs are very much there. If you can't reclaim your monies by yourself by complaining to your bank, for example, then stick to a company that has been around for some time and will continue to be around for the long haul. That's not The Claim Team.
