CML Claims Masters Ltd, Coventry

Had an email from CML advising that they had uncovered a PPI claim that was refused previously by GE Money for c.£4000.  They want us to pay £350 upfront solicitors fees - not sure how comfortable I feel about doing this.. the amount they are saying we can claim is an exact amount, which seems unusual.. any information/thoughts/advice would be great - thank you :)

    Have you agreed a contract with CML. It probably is spam, if you haven't agreed anything with them.

    Advanced fee fraud, more than likely.

    they haven’t discovered anything other than some people see a few zeros and get greedy.

    as above, avoid, ignore, move on with your life.

    it's spelt d-e-f-i-n-i-t-e-l-y
    there - 'in or at that place'
    their - 'owned by them'
    they're - 'they are'
    it's bought not brought (i just bought my chicken a suit from that new shop for £6.34)
  • Just got a phone call, and an email.. I give them my 'dodgy people email address'!!  

    Shame though as a nice wedge of cash!! :) 
  • I meant to say, is this not 'Fraud'? £150,000 turnover last year... so they are obviously earning from some people!! 
  • Just search the registered address on Google street view. That will tell you everything you need to know. They are also not authorised by the FCA, so you could report them.
    I work in Data Protection and spend my days dealing with CMC's. Only here trying to help!!
  • I have had similar contact from them, I have reported them to the FCA and Action Fraud. It sounded too good to be true and they asked for 20% of the settlement upfront to release it to me and they work on a no win no fee basis.
