jayne bazeley Jan 22nd, 2010
just rang gave his name xxxx and ask if i want them to call back i said no. i put the phone down within 1 minute they called back saying i have ask them to called back.
They rang me at 8.30 pm and hung up so I rung back and they said about wiping all loans and credit cards so I played along and gave the phone 2 my 4 year old boy and they explained it to him it was great lol
I used to work for the company they are a sham and are all a set of arseholes! Ignore there calls!!!
keep ringing me every hour 3 times in a row wont go away or stop calling am on payg just got the number and hvent registerd with ne companys so no idea how got my number
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?
seems like everyone on here has the same idea thats good to know that peopl are like me and check it on internet as soon as they get a missed call from an unknown number, its also nice to know that sites like these exist to help us out.
i got a missed call 2 hrs ago just got txt msg nw tellin me bout missed call didnt recognise it so googled it and found this site.
i wont be anwering it if it calls again!
apparently they are not claim 2 gain they are a bogus company out to blacken the name of c2g, callin themselves REclaim2gain.
either way don't answer the call and definately don't call them back!
as soon as i got a msg saying i missed the call i looked it up and found this site.
hung up on me when I answered

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.
i have just recieved a call from angela jones from claim4gain who claims that she can get all my bank charges back for £49.99, she called me on my mobile...?how did she get my number?? she knew my name and what bank account i had.....she is supposed to be calling back tomorrow for payment............
had a missed call from this number so checked area code and its from bolton and i dont knowany 1 from bolton so i looked abit further and found this site glad i didnt answer just want to know now how the hell they got my number scaming bas£$%ds!!
Missed call... good job too I reckon!
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...
had 2 missed calls off these ppl!!rang both times then i anwsered the third call and they hung up!!! if u get a call ignore it or play them at their own game an give false info!!!!!
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.
they called me as well, they are very persistent and convincing in their demand and ability to wipe off all my credit card debt provided my card was taken out before June 2007. 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 called, I let it ring then when I answered didn't say anything for a few seconds... Said 'hello'... office noises then they hung up!
Who are dese ppl n how do they get the numbers :S
i missed the call n when i googled da number turns

THEY RANG - HANG UP I RANG BACK - THEY HUNG UP AGAIN
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

this is a total con number. this woman called me from this number and she talked to me about my bank account overdraft, and asked if I incurred any bank transfer. she just wanted to get my bank information out. when I said "what, what bank?", she put the phone down straightaway.

Got a call from this number. They hung up shortly after I answered....sounded like a call centre in the background
I got a missed call from them so rang back and got an alternated service for 'claim to gain'.
silence when picked up engaged when rang back
They hung up when answered. Who on earth are they? What do they want? Am I likely to see some weird charges on my phone bill?
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.
call hung up when answered dont know how they got my number only had phone since xmas
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 rang my mobile but I didn't answer because didn't recognise the number, searched on internet & found this! Glad I didn't answer now!
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).
This is a scam!!do not give your details to these people!!!!! they are pretending to be a company to help you claim bank charges back!! they tried taking £100 out of my account without my consent....when i tried calling back the line was dead!!
Just got back to my desk and checked my phone and had a missed call off this number (01204 384100) I only googled it to see what the area code was and found this site! Glad I didnt answer it!! Has anyone tried to ring it back off a land line??
The number showed up (01204 384100). I answered and it went bleep bleep bleep.
They called my mobile and hung up when I answered. Didnt recognize the number so I googled it, and came up with this great site and I now know who they are and what they are up to.

I received a call from this number which stopped after 2 rings, I wonder if I were to call back would it be at some ridiculous rate? Probably!
Scam service for reclaiming bank charges, do not give any bank details to them.
Very persistent, keep repeatedly ringing under different caller ID's.
I repeatedly asked who was calling as the line wasn't clear, they hung up. Got the feeling it was a scam as they mentioned bank charges which is why I logged on here.
this is a scam! you do not have to pay anything to get all youre bank charges reimbursed the bank will do it for you free of any charge claim 4 gain ...whos gain not yours it is money for nothing deeply dissapointed to have been stupid enough to pass my bank details over the phone ,the bank cannot stop the transaction- but you can ask claim 4 gain to cancel the transaction which i will unfortunatley the offices are shut they called close to 6 o oclock i hope to stop it in the morning
