    they are an abosolute con!! I had a call from them the other day where they were saying to me that i have been mis-sold ppi, but when i asked do you have any of my information they say no, and that i would have to provide any records of accounts ive had over the years such as credit cards, loans, car finances mortgages and so on? which made me very nervous as you would think they would have this information in the first place to ring you up, not only did they want all that information they wanted me to sign 2 "legal documents" via email and get card details to access my credit file and if my claim was successful i would have to pay a upfront fee of £495, as any one would be that made me suspicious and i wanted to find out more about them so i did my research and found out that Carmarthen branch have changed names numberous times and they have gone from Scarlet services, Scarlet marketing, SMS legal and U legal, the reason they have changed from SMS legal to U legal is because they are being investigated so DO NOT GO WITH THIS COMPANY!!! there are 2 offices 1 based in the lyric building,5 King street, Carmarthen, SA31 1BH and another based in 12a high street, Ammanford, SA18 2LY. The one based in Ammanford has also changed its name numberous times going from Penguin ltd, Mis-Sold products, Scarlet marketing, Scarlet services, SMS Legal to U legal. Clearly something is not right for them to change names so many times. I would highly suggest if you want to claim back your money than do it yourself and dont go with any company that charges up front. If you have already claimed with any of them then i would ring the bank straight away and say that fraud has been committed and to cancel your card, if they carry on coming up with excuses go to the ombudsman.

    I was asked for £299 - not £495 - and they claimed on my behalf, just over £2000 which they paid into my account in Oct 16. I am still waiting for a bill for the 25% & vat. Is this company still operating?
    Bob replied 2/1/17 10:56 AM
    I called the administrators, McAlister & Co, who confirmed that SMS legal had gone into administration. They told me the directors have set up a new firm, Swift Financial, and so beware if you hear from them! They told me that if you paid your £495 by credit card you should be able to claim back the amount under section 75 of the consumer credit act. If you paid by cheque or bank transfer, you've lost your money!
    lisa replied 2/24/17 7:22 PM
    Hi I have put in a section 75 to my credit card, how long does a section 75 take to complete? And did anyone get there money back this way?

    I feel extremely foolish too - I'm not usually so gullible! I paid out £495 in September 2016 - having been through the paperwork which seemed legitimate. I'm furious with myself (and them) now! How can I go about trying to get a refund please?

    Hope this helps. I sent a letter of complaint to David Rushton the company director who agreed in writing to pay my full deposit back by October. This hasn't happened so I have contacted my credit card company who are working on this. Also you can complain to the legal ombudsmen www.legalombudsman.org.uk or call 0300 555 0333. Good luck!

    I went through the whole process with SMS legal alias Scarlet services etc...

    Their sales tactics were admittedly very good and it takes a lot to get me to listen and go for it. I was generally happy to proceed but then got very cautious when so far in to the process they asked for £495 of my credit card and they agreed it was a'holding fee'. However, they make you sign the agreements before they verbally admit you need to pay them the money, be aware as morally this is wrong.

    I had looked into my own PPI claims in the past and nothing really came up. Anyhow there were completely unsuccessful, with them even lying to me, saying they appealed a decision to the ombudsman for a reclaim on my back package account fees. They did not and I asked for my money back at that point.

    The whole process took circa 7 months before I had to make about 3 calls to get my £495 refunded to my CC. I sill get email updates from them even through I an technically not their customer.

    In short, never ever go with a PPI company if they ring you out of the blue.

    Conned replied 9/27/16 4:58 PM
    I had the same convincing very friendly 'cold call' sales pitch which I fell for 18 months ago. Once they had my £495 that was it! getting to speak to anyone was almost impossible, and even when I did they kept fobbing me off saying that they were still waiting for the various lenders to reply. After 12 months of nothing but statements stating that there was no PPI repayment due on some loans (which I already knew because I hadn't taken out PPI when it was offered) and 'awaiting response' from other lenders, I told them I was taking the matter to the FSA and the media...and suddenly my £495 was repayed. Up until last month I was still receiving statements from SMS Legal as, according to them, my account was still active even though they wrote to say that they had been unable to recover any PPI payments, so the repayment of the initial fee was to terminate their contract with me!
    Natalie replied 11/23/16 1:47 PM
    Hi can you tell me who you contacted to get your refund? I also paid on my credit card over a year ago and have a letter from the director saying I would receive a full refund by 27/10/16 which I obviously haven't. Thanks
    Conned replied 12/20/16 9:07 AM
    To Natalie,

    I eventually got my money back from the broker who was the agent who introduced me to SMS Legal....but I'm sure this only happened as a gesture of goodwill after I discovered through conversation a most unexpected personal link. Contact your credit card company, explain the circumstances and give them this Tellows link in support.

    WARNING - this is the fake PPI claims company known as ULegal and also Scarlet Marketing Services and they are being investigated by MOI. DO NOT agree to anything and DO NOT give them your bank/credit card details if they ask you for £1 to confirm your account and do not sign their contract.

    I have recently been in contact with this company all I can say is what a fantastic service I have received I was well aware of such telesales calls I would normally ignore but I listened to a lovely chap called Brian Cartwright and was very impressed with the knowledge he had once he completed my report it was 20 pages of financial agreements I forgot about over the years being in my 60s now . I have recently received a cheque for £11400 which he said I would get between 8000-10000 so very pleased

    £11400 -25% fee -495£ non refundable "deposit" = £8055
    IN case Miss Chandler would bother to care whether or not she get back 8k or 10k ....
    Is that even a real people are writing this comments or its just another floor in sms office, trying to pull up their image?
    If you reading this have a brain - and i hope you do just think about it:
    They have your number from thin air... Asking for all details of your bank AC or credit card... At this point you should hang up. It does not matter if they telling you who you speak with, what is a proof that is really that person?
    I have to admit... I did fall for that, i never could expect that i can, but they have manuvered me- they live out of that so they are REALLY GOOD at it. I have canceled my arregments with them,straight away and not without difficulties take my money back 495£. It costs me 30£ phone bill to calling them as obviously is a premium rate they also make money from!
    Also all my worries about them seems to be thrue as their website does not exist anymore!

    I write this as a regular hard working person that needs to bust his a***s off at work and like to warn everybody to never fall for this kind of scam....
    They put banks in a bad light because of ppi, but they charge you 1800£ out of 4000£ For sending template paperwork in your behalf... IF they were even genue company - that most likely THEY ARE NOT

    I started up the claim in November had a settlement already they are awaiting from my lenders (which ate back 30 years ) as the company (northern rock) is not trading so they are claiming through the fscs for me you can also keep track of your claim on their website if you type in your reference number to hope this helps
