They have been going since Oct/November 2008. No one has been sucessful and they dont give refunds unless you scream and go via Ministry of Justice who they are being investigated by. You will be assigned a case manager and she sits on the right of the reception/switchboard and wont take calls(in a meeting,on phone, busy e.t.c). They are based in Alhaurin(Park Lane Services International ltd) and Fuengirola Spain(First Debt Elimination/Escort contact website/contact Magazine Call centre). All town numbers listed are fake and go to the same switchboard. test 0034952197094 and all listed numbers will arrive at same switchboard. They cold call which breaks the code to start with and missell. Linked to Escort site scams and timeshare and ppi scams. Main office is in Fuengirola and anyone familiar will find the office on the left on the way to the market in Los Boliches. What was known as Telephone Tinas. Operation legally listed in Spain as Investment Marketing S.L More details and names available on request. If you been duped already Contact your creditcard issuer about a refund (quote section 75 )and /or paypal or if Debit card try chargeback to pull money back as quicker than asking them direct as you wont get through or use help from this site you are on now. More details and names available on request.

    Having read a recent post about a company dealing in debt elimination, thought I would pass on my experiences with a company with a similar name. I have no knowledge of the other company mentioned, but a first hand knowledge of the company detailed below

    Warning, if anyone has had or thinking of dealing with First Step Debt Elimination otherwise known as 1st Step Solutions, website www. 1ststepdebtelimination. com, telephone numbers 0843 207 1783 and 0207 193 5428. I would strongly advise you think again and also to claim back any monies you may have paid them..
    This company has only recently started operating; they say in London (Shakespeare House, 2nd Floor, 168 Lavender Road, London, SW11 5TG) this is not true, they only operate in Spain. If you do a little research, you will see their address leads to a virtual office address (www. shakespearehse. co. uk), so all mail that is sent to that address will be forwarded onto another location of their choice for a small fee. Since I have been doing a lot of investigation, I have only managed to track down the post to another type of virtual office in Arroyo de la Miel, Costa del Sol, Spain, more like a post office to me but not quite. That’s where there mail is either dropped off at their office (small cold call illegal telesales office) or is collected up by a member of their staff.
    They also claim that they are regulated with the ministry of justice (MOJ) with the authorization number CRM61241 which DOES NOT exist. I have been in contact with the MOJ and passed on all paper work I have received to them. Let’s hope we can get this company put to sleep for good and hope that no one will be caught out by these scamming (I can think of a lot more appropriate words) people.
  • I too paid this company a large sum of money and on researching into their activities found that I had been scammed.Its true they are not registered with the MOJ and are in fact under investigation as I write and I hope the scamsters get all they deserve. I am 76 yrs old and in Spain on probably my last holiday as my wife cant get insurance any more.
    I will be attempting to find the office in Arroyo De La Miel as qoted by Greg 56 in the previous script.Does anybody know where it is in relation to the train station?? Is it near??
    If I am succesful in finding them I will publish the details for all to see on here and anywhere else I bloody well can!!I want their names ,addresses and I want justice from these thieving scammsters!!! Be warned do not trust them!!!

    Look at the Cartel thread on here and CCLS thread.

    Unfortunately, you are going to have a very hard time of it I'm afraid. I hope I'm wrong for your sakes.

    If they are not registered with MoJ and are located in Spain, you will find it difficult.

    How much is involved? You need to way that up against the anguish and stress in getting redress.
    Please ignore those people who post on this forum who deliberately try to misinform you. Don't be bullied by them, don't be blamed by them. You know who I mean.
    You come here for advice, help and support- thats what I and like minded others will try to do.

    We hve been trying to get a refund since January, every time I phone they tell me that it is still with the finance dept and no-one can tell me exactly when I will get my money. Now I see they have ceased trading. I will phone the MOJ again tomorrow. They owe me £995. I know it`s not mega amounts but it`s still my money :mad:

    Sorry to hear they got you too!
    We have just found out, via this website, that we too have been scammed by Park Lane Services, we paid out £1700 last April and nothing has been done to help us. We are being taken to Court by some of our Creditors as we were told by Park Lane Services not to pay them. What do we do now?

    I too have been fooled. Just rang to see how my claim was getting on only to find the person who answered the telephone said that it was a private number I had rang funny though it sounded just like the person I dealt with over my claim!!! Hence my search for Park Lane Services led me to this.
