    Oh god no. Just handed over money to them to act on our behalf. Cant get hold of them. Was wondering if they were a con. They did have a petition to wind up in June 2016. They assured me it was dismissed.

    I appointed CLS after a cold call to collect a bad debt for me, a sales guy called Andy Dumars made a house call to run through what they do and was very convincing. Since then I've had 1 basic update and lots of excuses, can't get hold of anyone and no one returns calls. I'v been promised an update by 5pm on 6th December 2016, if nothing comes then I will get the police action fraud team and trading standards involved.

    Need to get even with this lot. Anyone know his address?
    RE7 replied 12/13/16 6:56 AM
    MD1 - I am in the same position as you, would be interested to know how you get on with trading standards and the police. They collected the debt but didn't pass it on - due 9th Dec 2016
    CLSCON replied 12/13/16 7:02 AM
    Jim - I have done some digging on these people, mainly Ben Reynolds. The only address I have is an old one from one of his first ventures - 26 Dovecot Ave, Liverpool, L14 7QL. I believe it was his old home address and his parents still live there.
    The guy who came to see me was Gary Evans - he told me his two sons Rhys and Ben, play rugby for Warrington Wolves - not sure if this was blarney though ?
    MD1 replied 12/13/16 8:47 AM
    To RE7; Trading standards are aware of CLS being accused reported as a rogue trader since at least October 2016 but are unable to share any information due to the data protection act which I find very frustrating! CLS are protected but the victims aren't.
    Action Fraud are now dealing with it but as you can imagine they are very busy so these things take time, they guarantee a response within 30 days though.
    After the initial wait for the 7 day deadline to pass, I kept pressing CLS for updates, when they finally sent me a copy of the letter they supposedly sent to my debtor it had 2 obvious errors on it and at that point I called action fraud. I don't think the people behind this are as clever as they think they are so it's only a matter of time before they get caught.
    I dealt with the following people:-
    a guy who came to my office, black guy, 6 foot tall late 20's early 30's, calling himself Andrew Dumars (or Andy Dumars). He claimed to have grown up and still lives in Shoreditch, East London.
    Whilst he was with me he called up his director and he sounded like he had a thick Scouse accent.
    The lady I spoke with on the phone in the office after this just basically runs interference, she called herself Claire Watson, the number is 02037439790. There were several emails from CLS too from various accounts; Nathan James, Amy Watson, Darren Jones, Sam Dixon and lastly Lee Walsh.
    I also reported this to my local police station as CLS came to see me in person, it wasn't just an online or phone scam. They confirmed that Action Fraud are the correct channel to report it as it's a civil matter. I'm considering starting small claims with the court once I hear from Action Fraud, I have 2 company addresses, a bank account number, several telephone numbers, a description of the person who I met and several email addresses and a website to track them down.
    RE7 replied 12/13/16 9:07 AM
    Thanks MD1, I will get on to Action Fraud and Trading Standards myself, the more that report them the quicker they should act. There are lots of names they use, my guess some are just alises, Paul Turner, Mike Murphy, Gary Evans, Luke Parker are a few more to add.

    6/4/18 3:22 AM

    I'm ashamed to say that I worked for Ben Reynolds for a short time back in 2012 when his company was called Crown Lawyers. Same story as these, he'd get us to find people with debts, take a fee from them and then cut off all contact with them.

    Supposedly we'd get a commission for every job taken on, but he'd tell us that the person had decided not to go ahead with recovering their debt and so we got nothing. We then found out that they had agreed to pursue the debt and Ben just wanted to avoid paying us what was agreed.

    He also screwed us over with wages when the company mysteriously disappeared, leaving a very confused and angry landlord wanting to discuss rent arrears.

    What makes this story even more disgusting is that he had a deal with the Jobcentre where they would send people to work for him as part of the Workfare program. They were fully aware of his antics and continued to send people to him after he set up other companies.

    If there's anyone on here that I played a part in you being scammed, I am deeply sorry and can assure you that in my brief time with Crown Lawyers, I had no idea that this is what he was doing. He had this deal going on with the DWP, so you'd think that they would vet people to make sure they were legit.

    12/6/17 1:14 PM

    From close research I know they are trading as a company called Brave London Ltd Trading as Sequence Legal. The director of this company is Chukwudi Ekoku. After close surveillance he has been sited multiple times with Christian Carney and he's believed to be the latest puppet in the Christian Carneys debt recovery scam. I am aware CLS/Sequence traded from A office on wood street for a few month before moving offices leaving rent arrears.

    Carneys latests con company sequence claims to be trading from Chester, however this is just a decoy and they're actually trading from Liverpool with the same staff as cls.

    Hopefully something happens soon to get this scum bag behind bars.

    Reynolds and Carney are cousins as mothers are sisters. Reynolds has been put in this position by Christian Carney who has managed to con people for over 20 yrs and avoid prosecution by putting company in other people's name.

    This is new information. How is Carney getting away with this? Trading Standards, The Daily Mirror, eveyone is onto them but they keep getting away with it scott free. Everyone that works there is involved from what we can all see. Have you any ideas of what can be done?

    Interesting article above. We are also victims of these crooks having paid them over £2000 in Jan 17 to recover a £7000 debt and just getting no where with them. These people must be stopped. I feel so let down and we let these crooks into our home, chatting to our children, its just not acceptable. I have reported them to Trading Standards and am currently writing a final letter for a refund, before possibly taking legal action.

    6/29/17 5:33 PM

    I have been investigating this company myself for a number of years following a previous company trading under the same style. I do know they used to be a company called Lombard Legal who were based in liverpool and the man behind this was christian carney who employed his staff as directors. I am 95% certain carney is behind this company also. I believe ben reynolds is a relative to chris and ben is nothing but a front. Paul Gav is also a well known in the industry for all the wrong reasons and i understand he currently works for CLS Central Ltd. He was also a previous director for Lombard legal.

    Lsf have taken around £5k from my family, we borrowed it to fight a legal battle that we are 95% sure to win. Today I try contacting them only to find no phone lines are open, no contact. Then I came across this website.
    To say the wind has been taken from my sails is a massive understatement. I don't know how my family will survive this.
    If anyone can assist in helping me to recover these funds or possibly a company that can assist legally I'd be forever grateful.
    How can these people do this, I am very happy to assist anyone else in getting these people and these companies rid of.

    I have paid £3,600 to this firm. Do not get involved with them under any circumstances. They took the money from me begining Oct 16, 6 months later nothing has happened to collect my bad debt. They appointed a solicitor, Khers at Sowerby Bridge who say they haven't been paid by CLS. All you get is lie after lie, you can never get hold of anyone. Anyone need help call me on 07966525033. I got a lot of help from another victim on this forum who left his number. Ben Reynolds is the crook behind this scam, or Benjamin Reynolds of Benjamin Edward Reynolds. He may live in Mansfield, anyone know of his home address please phone me. The 2 men who called at my house were, allegedly, called Tony Lister & Gary Jones.

    Finally received payment, however we had to instruct another solicitor to start winding up and they paid up an hour before we were going to issue court papers. My guess is they think most people will not be bothered or do not want to lose more money.
