Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.
You need to check the retainer that you signed with the firm. It does sound like a scam to me.
Once you check the retainer it will set out what they can charge for and charges. If they are exceeding this you can refuse to pay.
If you are minded to pay or paid the first sum by credit card then you are given protection under section 75 of the consumer credit act 1974.
This means your card issuer is jointly liable if it turns out to be a scam. If they refuse to take credit cards, then this is a clear sign it is a scam.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
If not might I invite you to leave me a positive rating before you go, this ensures the site credits me for the time spent answering your question.
If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.
A retainer are terms and conditions which would have been sent for them to be instructed.
Does that assist?
