Thank you! It seems this company is legal after all!
A Mr Wilson phoned me to say they are holding £25874 for me as compensation and wish to send this to me by Bankers Draft. However they require 3% from me before they will send it.
I believe this is a Spanish Court payment from a hearing last Oct30th against Marcus Row, director of Incentive Leisure, Full Circle Holidays etc which found him guilty and awarded me (among others) the amount I’ve stated.
So far I have received nothing and really wish to know whether or not Sure Legal are holding this for me?
I’ve been quoted their Barclays Bank account and sort code numbers held by a DA Lane.
I really need to know whether I should send them £776 (3%) from my bank account?

I would not advise to do so.

Just ask them to deduce the percentage from the payment amount.

If they refuse, it is fairly likely they are trying to defraud you.

Thank you.

But I would give over 95% that they are trying to scam you and you should report them.

Thank you.
