I've been calling them to see if they are still selling the package but no one's answering the phone. Have they gone away? Fat chance. Just like putting a dog turd in a bucket of water,filth like this will surface somewhere else. Hey np how do you like being compared to a dog turd.
firstly, LOLLY you are as much a low life as the scum bags who run this scam!!!
secondly,, 19-21 caunce street blackpool is where you will find these shit bags!!!
thirdly,,, the name DAVID HOWARTH newcastle avenue blackpool.....comes up in one search i did .apparently he`s the clever CUNT behind this scam but cant i say for sure, so would`nt be good sport to introduce him to my baseball bat, unless someone can confirm this please.
lastly,,,, i always wanted to see the iluminations in the shithole of a town. lets collectively book a coach trip to the seaside and congregate
at their offices and iluminate them!!! my fare & bat are ready!!!
scammed too Dec 10th, 2009
lolly it's obvious you work for them. what a wanker, who do you think you're kidding.
who's this guy saying piss off to? the bloke who got his son's money back from this bucket of shit or someone else?
judgement by the supreme court today shows just how dishonest these shits are. there must be loads of you who could take them to court now for miss selling.
They took £49.99 from my son. We sent the pack back within the 7 working days and kept the evidence from the post office that we had done so. They didn't pay him back as promised, didn't even acknowledge his letter. So I threatened to take them to court. They've paid up. Not so keen to face the law are they. Ministry of Justice were a great help as were the OFT.
these bastards got me £50 down well pissed off any 1 got any ideas on how to find these thieving cunts

definitely wilson & bateman - just called back - put in a queue
Ok I have to say im probably the only person who's about to say something positive on here but im so enraged that all you people are kicking off about paying for a service.. I had a call from this company they were very honest about the fact that there was a one off fee of 49.99 for the documents they issue out.. I have followed everything they have advised and am now half way through my claim! It is not a scam or a con it is basically a service offered for a price as like all services provided in our day and age! And for somebody like myself who knows nothing about the ongoings of the banking world and how to approach them im happy to pay a small fee and put it in the hands of someone else!!! If this was a scam my bank would never of acknowledge the forms and responded to them in 8 days! Get a grip people and if you dont want companies to call you offering a service call your network provider and tell them!!!
Just got a call from them from a slightly different number 01253 755 788 but they sounded dodgy. I looked them up on google and this site was the first listing so thank you for helping me to avoid these fraudsters. BTW they are asking for £59.99 up front now and offering a full refund of charges plus 8%. According to Consumer Direct the legal case regarding bank charges is still ongoing so everything WIilson & Bateman tell you is wrong.
Absent Sam Nov 10th, 2009
these arseholes called my 16 year old son whilst at college, he miss understood them and thought they where going to give him money.guess what they took £49.99 out of his account and after reading this he now understands he aint got a cat in hells chance of getting it back.how can these people do this?
Just recieved a call from this number, luckly never gave any details out as I'm very wary of this type of thing but they seem to be now opperating under the name of
"Wilson & Bateman"
I rang my bank instantly and they're aware of these fraudsters!
if people BSB read this. your a bunch of thieving shitty cons who will be brouht to justice.
BANKING SOLUTIONS BUREAU- have been well and truly stitched up by these arseholes, telling me they could get all bank charges back from last 6 years for fee of 4.99 when they actually took 49.99 out of my acconut. never give bank details as i fell for this bullshit. if they ring contact CONSUMER DIRECT IMMEDIATELY ON 084-540-4050
6 then report it to your bank and the police. These are horrible con artists taking from the poor so stop them NOW.
forgot to say the company refused to give their address when asked, something to hide then.
get in touch with your bank and the office of fair trading. my sons bank know they're a scam organisation, the more info they get, the more complaints they get the more they will be able to do. one day they will step over the legal line
Have just had this company phone, was swept up in a very rapid and convincing hard sell conversation, broke rule number 1 about not giving over details (something i usually live and die by) and then after realising what a complete idiot I was called back to cancel the agreement (which will result in £49.99 being removed from my bank account). After further investigation I have found this site and now am aware I can kiss my money goodbye...please please please do not even bother to listern to these con men/women!! I feel such a fool and am so very angry.
took £49.99 out of my account as the said i would have all my bank charges in my account within 4 weeks. i explained to them what i had from the bank and the letters i sent and they said these were different. i looked them up on google and they have a web site. once all the paperwork came through that they said they would it was the exact same as i had already sent to the bank which i already had got free from the internet. i have phoned them back about 5 times now asking for my money bak into my account and i keep getting told they have 30 ddays. my advice to anyone is dont do do it. keep away
0this company is now known as banking solutions, formerly known as reclaim 2 gain the agent said that they could reclaim all the bank charges for the last 6 years for a one off fee of £49.99
John McConnell Jul 10th, 2009
PLEASE EVERYONE STAY AWWY FROM THIS COMPANY. AS FAR AS I KNOW THEY HAVE LIQUADISED 3 TIME ALREADY AND TOOK PEOPLES MONEY WITH THEM. THEY USED TO BE CALLES EUROPA, THEN TOUCH100 THEN RECLAIM2GAIN NOW THE SOMETHING ABOUT BANKING SOLUTIONS BUREAU. STAY AWAY!!! THE DIRECTOE IS DAVIS HAWORTH WHO WAS GETTING INVESTIGATED BY THE POLICE FOR MONEY LAUNDERING. THE ADDRESS IS 15 CAUNCE STREET BLACKPOOL. STEER WELL CLEAR. CON MAN
this guy from the number 01253 755780 keeps calling my mobile..i have no idea how he got my number but he wants my card details saying he can get my money back on bank charges....my missus told me they do not look legit..so i googled them ...could not find them..so i googled the number and have found a number of web sites that do not like this guy. I've seen a lot of people say he works for Reclaim to Gain..well he told me ( calling from the same number) that he worked for Banking Solutions!!
Do Not give these people any details or money and Report them immediately!!
they just phoned me asking for £49.99, to get all my charges back plus interest, i wouldnt give bank details over the phone so they have left an address for me to send a cheque!
Caller hung up on answer so I called back. Said to ring back so I could get bank details.Obviously I would not give these to anyone!! 'Jamie' said that it was all above board and I would receive a ref. number!
Glad I checked out this site!
Call on mobile- during office hours! Not answered but checked on here as no voicemail left. I like one chaps idea of calling them about random items like weather or fake emergencies...
18/11 Missed call form them; pleased I googled before I called back.
Called my mobile and hung up. Sounded like call-centre in background.

called today, but missed the call
Rang me from 01253 755781 first. I picked up, and the other end hung up. Charming. I rang them back asking who it was and the lady explained she was calling from Reclaim2gain and asked me if I'd had any bank charges in the past 6 years. I said yes just to see what it was all about and told her to ring me back because I was on my mobile. I knew it wasn't my bank because I work for my bank. She rang me back and I said I was curious to know how she'd gotten my details. She said it was automated. I asked how did it end up being automated in the first place. She was just about to explain when.....the line got cut off. My advice is that do NOT give ANY sort of details of your accounts. Bank charge claims have ALL been put on hold for the time being because there is no final decision AS YET as to whether the charges or fair or not.
Was a missed call on my mobile. Had another missed call last week from someone who withheld their number. Could be the same people? Does anyone know who they are?
Hey people becareful I go a phone call from a number 020-862-0023
6 today with the same deal and name from the caller above so i looks lik they have changed their number!
Fraudsters, hang up immediately do not give your bank details
They rang my mobile! Asked me whether or not I've received any bank charges in past 6months, to which I stupidly answered with a no (I didn't think to hang up for some reason) and she said "okay, thank you" and hung up! So I hassled them. Rang back an annoyed them with senseless calls about the weather and all sorts. Eventually they turned on an automated message saying "Thank you for calling Reclaim to Gain, our ofices are now closed. Please call back between 10am and 5pm."
Same as http://whocalled.us/lookup/012-537-55780
9 - much more info on these pages. Can't believe these scam-tards are still in business - I guess they found enough gullible fools to keep going.
As soon as I answered they hung up- not wasting my time ringing them back
We don't hide our number from any1
They just called my mobile but hung up before I could answer it - I'm glad now I know what it's about!
Great site, will be my first port of call in future.
i answered (my mobile) and they hung up on me. if they ring again i will report them as i'm registered with the tps.
Called my mobi......saddo's
This company called my mobile. How did they get my mobi number? Great site this one. Hate bogus/sales callers. Kill all sales reps.
i have had missed call - never had a bank charge in my life! y would they call me?!!!
if they ring again i am de,anding to be removed from their lists!!!
I have just received a call from these guys.
They are saying they have a 100% pass rate at claiming back bank charges. All you have to do is give them all your details over the phone!!!
Which of course I did not agree to. They wanted my address, card details, name of bank bank who I wanted to claim back charges etc....
He was very convincing and gave me all their company details, companies house number, web address and said I was welcome to look it up.
I did, they are a registered company but if you look up info on Touch100 who owns reclaim2gain its not good news. Touch100 seem to have set up all sorts of loans/credit companies and many have gone bust!!
I cant believe they expect people to hand over all this info over the phone. It cant be safe and dont do it.
Just had a call from them on my mobile. V little reception in my house, so couldn't hear a word they were saying on the other end!! Eventually the reception went and I searched on google for the number and here I am! What a brilliant site! There are so many times when you get weird calls and want to know who the caller was, but can't find anything! Cheers guys!
Just got a call from this number, hung up as I answered. Auto dial system confirmed. (I work in marketing) ALWAYS ASK FOR YOUR NAME TO BE REMOVED FROM THEIR LIST - ILLEGAL FOR THEM TO RETAIN YOUR INFO IF YOU ASK TO BE REMOVED - THE 1984 DATA PROTECTION ACT.
Was called by this number - my husband answered the call and they hung up. Glad I checked them out on this page. Thanks
ok guys, ive just been rang from this ''company'' and they said they work for the minstry of justice (moj)? and they work for them to reclaim peoples bank charges, the guy i spoke to was a claims advisor trained my the MOJ!!! and he promised me they have a 100% win rate?! i thought this was to good to be true then the fee came into it
They literally just called me five minutes ago I ignored the call as I didn't know the number. Typed the number into google and this came up. So glad I didn't answer the phone. Going to change my mobile number soon anyway.
I received a call from 012-537-55780
yesterday, I see that this is associated with 020-862-0023
6 (Mike Cook - 12 Feb 2008), the man claimed to be from the Banking Rights Bureau and spoke about "Reclaim2gain" saying that I could claim back by bank charges.
He was starting to fish for information about my bank details but I became suspicious and asked where he obtained my number from because I do not divulge it! I am with Orange! He answered saying that my number was on a huge database starting from "05"! He persisted fishing for information and I stopped him by saying that I didn't know who he was and certainly was not prepared to discuss my personal details with him over the phone. He quickly rang off!
1. I am annoyed that he was able to obtain my number when I try to keep it private!
2. I am very angry to find that these people are fishing for personal banking details to use maliciously. These people need to be investigated and called to account!

I received a call from this number but missed the call. No message was left. I do not recognise the number.
Just had this number call me, I couldn't answer it as being at work so checked the website first before ringing them back and hey, got this wesbite! Great website, won't bother to ring them back now!
why does someone in blackpool keep ringing me?
keeps ringing me. i havnt picked up yet. now i know what they want
This was a missed call on my phone. Great site to find out whether it is worth answering the call if they call again. Not sure how they got my number as I am on the phone preference service - obviously they aren't a quality outfit otherwise they wouldn't call someone on that list!
After receiving a missed call on my works phone, i rang them back to query the call. The lady who answered was very polite and talkative, although when i asked for the registered company address, which she was unable to provide, i was passed onto her colleague, who preceeded to tell me that it was due to health and safety reasons as to why they do not supply that information. There was an unnecessary amount of back ground noise, and they were asking for
I had a call from them at 12:15pm today and didn't answer but from what I've read I haven't missed anything important =]
I've had a few calls from people/companies and the strangest was some woman calling from a number in France. :O
I checked out this number's area code before I found this site and it turned out to be Blackpool.. I thought "What the.. I don't know anyone in Blackpool"
they called me this was not good cos i was driving i crashed the car and nearly died i will sue them soon i have got whiplash and my testicles are sore too
Bill Hickock Mar 21st, 2008
Haha and something else.
They arent even a business number.
They're a landline number.
And another thing
I have called them to claim they are Fraudsters
And the man started swearing at me
And very defensive.
They phoned me and asked if I wanted to reclaim bank charges.
I said yes, to see what would happen.
They then asked for my credit card details, and I then hung up.
They use random numbers, which is illegal.
They also want details, illegal.
The manager is called Keith, I think.
When I picked up the line and gave my name they hung up
I tried to call this number and I got a ansa message telling me to call back between 9 -5.30, this was at 13.15 so what does that tell you.
My wife had a missed call recently from this number was playing around on the computer and checked into this web site, didnt even know it existed. In future will check out any number we arent sure about just in case. You saved us potential hazzle. Thank you
Had a missed call on my mobile as I didn't get a chance to answer it! Didn't recognise it, so I Googled it and found this site - which is great! They don't sound like a decent company to me, looking at what others have written! Interesting to read about them actaully, especilly after seeing BBC's Watchdog programme last night talking about a company from Brighton conning people into buying un-needed warranties for satellite dishes without being clear who they were. Maybe a call to Watchdog would be interesting....!!
repeated calls from this number - but never rang long enough to actually answer the call... they can ... off - If it is about claiming bank charges back, I did my own, and got the pay out before the High Court action froze all actions by individuals
Had a missed call from this number today, was about to call back but thought i'd check the number on google first...glad I did after reading the comments on here!! Thanks alot for taking the time to leave comments, i have found them very useful. I'm slightly concerned about how they got my number tho! Great website, very handy!
The only time I give out this number is when I also indicate that I do not give permission for this number to be passed onto anyone else.
Missed their call today just after 12pm, i knew it wasnt anyone i'd know so I 'googled' their number and so pleased I did....they will get an earful if they try again!
This site is great, thank you, worrying how they get hold of numbers though
Got the call today 12.10 to my work mobile so God knows where they got the number from. The lady asked if I knew I could reclaim my bank charges and whether I had any to claim. I said no. She asked if she'd called a business number - I said yes. She said she'd remove the number from her system and then hung up. All took less than a minute but I wouldn't ever give any personal details to a cold caller (weirdly, only yesterday I was looking at reclaiming bank charges - but I'll be doing it myself thank you!)
My son received this as a missed to his mobile, he wanted to call back but has my instinctive sceptecism and so we looked them up via your service - well done thank you.....
Really helpful info from all those who gave feedback - Together we can make the world a better place :-)
This is Reclaim to Gain (possibly Reclaim2Gain) certainly Blackpool area code. Claim back your bank charges during the past 6 years. Ask for your number to be removed from their database. They use an auto dial system.
This number was a missed call, but I wouldn't have answered it anyway. I always make a point of having all numbers listed that might be in the least bit important and if don't recognise the number I NEVER ANSWER IT! If for some reason you do, hang up straight away before they get a chance to get into full flow and don't worry about feeling rude. People who do this type of cold calling have thick skins! Someone once talked over me very loudly when I politely said I wasn't interested. Whatever you do don't get into a conversation by giving a response. Don't say anything after hello, Just HANG UP! they will eventually get the message! NEVER GIVE YOUR DATE OF BIRTH OR ANY KIND OF INFORMATION OVER THE PHONE EVER!
Very funny this one. I received a call from these guys and decided to check online before calling them back and hey presto! I get this wonderful site. So I called them back and yes they are 'Claim to Gain'. She asked me whether I had recieved any bank charges within the last 6 years but instead of answering her question I told her that she might be interested to know what people are saying about her company and to type in there contact number. She just stated ok and wasn't that interested in what might be said.
Ignore it: I save the number and give it a name like "Ignore1"... then when it rings again I know what to do
Not fraudsters, just ambulance-chasers wearing a different jacket. Obviously not satisfied with mail campaigns. They reckon they can recover bank over-charges, but of course they'll want to skim a percentage for themselves.
Obviously back after a Christmas break and still at it. Report going to Trading Standards.
I found the lady to be very unprofessional from this company/con artist?! ... I actually thought it was my bank for a moment as there was no introduction. I too rushed her off the phone and she has called back twice in the last hour or 2!!! I will obviously not answering the phone. Or maybe just tell her where to go!
I was worried they would be charging me for the call somehow - very dodgy. she is calling me back apparently as I rushed her off the phone - despite telling her i have already filed myself for the charges to be returned to me she persisted with the sale. v. pushy and will be targeting vulnerable people at a tough time of year.
there after your money they asked me if i want to reclam bank charges for a one of payment of
c farrelly Dec 05th, 2007
Do not under any circumstances give any information to these people. They are trying to illegally obtain your bank details.
They use a rnadom dialler - Illegal
They ask for bank details - fraudsters?
this is Reclaim to Gain - claim your bank charges back.
