i got a missed call today from the number, glad i didn't answer!
supposedly, mobile phone companies like vodaphone, o2 , orange etc... sell phone numbers to other companies so that could be how they are getting hold of people's numbers... which i think is wrong, i hate the thought of people i dont know having my number.
glad i found this site so i know what to look out for in the future

they seem to be calling every mobile in the country in a quite calculated way and hanging up in the first 5 seconds in the hope that you will call them back. It worked on me but I used a land line. Isn't there a law in this country about using diallers and the like?

i used to work for this company and what it all is basically the office of fair trading have made all bank charges un lawfull and u can claim them back from the past 6 yrs. this company will offer u a step by step guide that enables u 2 claim ur charges back. it is a good idea coz ur gettin all ur bank charges back for a small fee which they charge for as a buissness.

had a phone call from this mob today, spookily enough about an hour previously I had been reading a piece in an old copy of one of the sunday papers highlighting their work and the slightly dubious nature of it. I decided to let the opportunity pass.

I also received this call at 1219 on 24th March - the lady's name was also Lydia Newby. She started to ask if I wanted them to act on my behalf to get my bank charges refunded and also stipulated the £49.50 legal fee - which she claimed will be refunded by the bank. she also said that they were not for profit and wouldn't take any percentage (how they survive as a business, I don't really know...)

It sounded slightly dodgey so rather than go along with it I requested some information in writing. She directed me to a website: claim4gain.co.uk
They are also connected to another number: 012-043-84100

The claim4gain website says the legal cost is £59.99 - there is no mention of banks refunding that AND it says that they take 25%+VAT from any refund (not what the lovely Lydia said to me on the phone).

Also - check out their 'Terms and Conditions': http://www.claim4gain.co.uk/terms.html
They offer a refund if you're not satisfied - but you have to re-package it and make sure there aren't any scratches on it (I'm not really sure how one can 'scratch' or 're-package' a bank charge refund - perhaps Lydia knows...)

I'd say - do it yourself to be on the safe side...

Wife took a call on my mobile from Zak. He said he could wipe balances on my credit cards taken out before June 2007. He called me back later that day and told me the same thing promising 100% success rate. He asked for expiry date which I gave him, then he asked for 16 digit card number I declined to do so. He was going to pass me to his supervisor Angela Jones if I gave him all my card details and said there would be a fee for the service. I was worried because he knew who I had accounts with and how many accounts. Don't want to be scammed so won't be talking to them again. BE AFRAID OF CALLS FROM THIS NUMBER.

I have pondered a lot on giving out my credit card numbers. I decided to chect out the name of the company before i stunmbled on this site (Thanks everybody for your comments) I have now asked them to kiss my boot

They call then hang up then call back. They offer they can get all your bank charges back which sounds good then go on to ask for your name, address, D of B and then bank card details including the last three numbers on the back of the card and when you dont give them they go on and on and on about how they need them to refund your charges. Havnt given them the number but they have phoned back at least 5 times asking for them. WHEN WIL THIS COMPANY[SCAM] TAKE NO FOR A ANSWER?????????

They are a company who try to take over your bank charges..DO NOT ALLOW THEM to, Do all the bank charges your self!

Banks have not lost in High Court its still ongoing.. you could always contact financial ombudsman service and get update from them,

Avoid morons, report them to trading standards if they carry on harassing you

I have blocked they number :)

First person who answered passed me straight on to a man with a foreign accent (West African to the best of my knowledge). I asked him who he was - no answer. I asked him why he was calling and he hung up. No mention of bank charges. Very poor line.

got a call from a guy called Zak who passed me to his team leader called Angela Jones.
Said they could get all the charges that my bank had taken from me back.

I was very worried about this call so checked the number on google and found this site.

I am expecting a call back at 2pm so i look forward to playing with these fools.

Claim4Gain is a scam. I signed up for their pack for £59.99 and they promised me on 3 occations that if I bought the pack it would tell me how to get my bank charges back for the last 6 years and I would get it back in 6 weeks 100% guaranteed. I saked how this could be as there is a hold on bank charges however they said if I followed their pack I would get it back in 6 weeks 100% guaranteed. However tehir pack was just free templates from moneysavingexperts and I COULD NOT GET MY BANK CHARGES back as they promised at all. I have tried to call them and they keep saying a manager will call me back however of course this does not happen.
They are a SCAM and I will report them to the Ministry of Justice.

They are claiming to be able to reclaim bank charges - they asked my wife for card number, expiry date and the 3 digit code to trace a bank account - obvious scam - fortunately she didn't provide this. I phoned back and they gave me their address Claim4Gain, PO Box 20, Bolton, BL1 9ND are purport to be a registered company (reg 667 1605).
