Hello, I was scammed by Incentive leisure Group, and now a firm called have said they can get back what I paid to ILG under section 75, on NWNFee basis, they then came back and said that we are entitled to compound interest and compensation for the stress caused etc, but they want 2.5% up front which is non-refundable and the balance of 22.5% after we have received any funds they retrieve for us.
I am concerned that this company may also be scamming us. Do you know of wtcadministration and are they legit.
Thank you *****
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
I haven't heard of this company but you might want to have a look here
Generally speaking, upfront fees are a bad deal even if they are not a scam.
If there is a S75 refund available then you can pursue it yourself. If you want to use the services of an agent then it is reasonable that they charge but they can deduct it from the award.
Also, if you have to pay up front then this is not no win no fee by definition.
I wouldn't get involved with this.
Can I clarify anything for you?

thanks, ***** ***** they can try the section75, which is no win no fee.

What worries me is the second part , they say that we are entitled to compound interest and compensation. Can you confirm that this is possible to get. And this is the extra that they are asking for the upfront fee. If we are entitled to compound interest and stress compensation then I will take a chance and pay upfront.

I hope you can give a 100% answer re the second part.


Not from your credit card company.
There might well be a claim in compensation against the individuals behind Incentive Leisure if fraud can be shown but that is very unlikely. If this is being linked to a S75 refund then it isn't going to happen.
Also there isn o such thing as stress compensation in the Uk.
If you had to sue you would get interest upon the claimed sum though.
