Clear Finance Ltd / Spam Claim Management

1 Huddersfield, England, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom Review updated:

This company is obviously a scam. I can't believe I fell for this. The website no longer exists. I can't find any individual persons name on any of the paperwork they sent me. Everything is signed 'your financial advisor'. Now that I'm looking into this company I am finding many similar stories posted on the internet. I lost £940.00 due to my own stupidity in trusting this company. I will do everything I can to report this company everywhere possible to fight for my money. First hint of fraud: . I have never heard of that other company. BEWARE of this company.

    The Ministry of Justice are now investigating this company, however, they are still authorised to trade and take other people's money. They must be stopped. The freephone number gives out a message stating 'number not available due to non-payment'. The landline just rings and rings. I have been told around 800 claims have been handed over to Century 21 Finance Claims in Staffordshire. I suggest you contact the MoJ, call Action Fraud and/or the police, call Trading Standards in Leeds and contact The Huddersfield Examiner and The Halifax Courier who, if they haven't already, would definitely want to run a story as the owners of Clear Finance are/were resident in the Huddersfield/Halifax area. Go to www.scam.com and start a new thread, among all the others about CMCs not doing their job. Finally, if you paid by credit card, try to retrieve your fees under section 75 of the consumer Credit Act. Good luck & don't give up, there's bound to be many more in your position.

    I have also been scammed by them, under a company calling themselves Council Tax Review. The website has gone now and I have the same problem with the phone numbers. The mobile number the rep gave me has been disconnected. I have only lost £95 but I am concerned that from the cheque I gave them they now have my bank details.

    PS - What do you mean "I have been told around 800 claims have been handed over to Century 21 Finance Claims in Staffordshire" - Is this a company trying to claim back monies owed by Clear Finance?

    Also the owner of the company is Darrell Rewston. His name brings up a few complaints too.

    You will probably not find him at this home address. I do know he lives in the greetland area, maybe even a different house number. I have had issues recently with this person. Cant find him anywhere. He is a conman!

    You could try finding him via his brother, Robert Calvin, who owns a hairdressers in Huddersfield, Halifax & the South of Spain. Robert Calvin owns the premises from where Clear Finance operated. These are now being converted into a Private Members Club. No doubt Mr Rewston will have some involvement in this new venture at some stage. If you want to know what he looks like, check out his facebook page.

    Try 01422 311584. This number has been posted in a handwritten note on the door of the premises in Westgate, Huddersfield. It works but it's difficult to get through.

    Darrell Rewston is trading again as 'Council Tax Review' on 01422 311584 from somewhere in Outlane, Huddersfield. Possibly his brother's house. There is someone there called Jack Henry on 0777 2633195 and he has been advertising for staff. Clear Finance website now gone. Darrell Rewston has closed his Facebook page but you can message him at www.linkedin.com if you can be bothered. Like lazydave above, unsuspecting people are going to be fleeced for £95 by this conman.

    Council Tax Review did sucessfully reband me and i did otain a refund from the number of years i over paid...it did take longer than first thought, but i believe that this was down to the awkwardness from the goverments reluctancy to move me down. im not bothered how long it took cause i paid £95 for them to work for me and they got me back £££££££180o!!!??????????????????

    Jack Darrell Rewston, fomerly known as Darrell Rewston, is trading as Council Tax Review at Springfield Hall, 2 Thornhill Road, HD3 3AU. Word has it that his business (?) will soon be moving to Fitwilliam House, 84 Fitzwilliam Street, HD1 5BB (probably because he wants to do moonlight flit to avoid trading standards, creditors, the Revenue, etc).
