I appreciate all of the help and support provided by KwikChex Ltd in particular to Chris Emmins who helped forge a link between Action Fraud and Trading Standards to take unscrupulous fraudsters to task. I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking redress, as they have considerable experience.

The staff at the Timeshare Task Force were very professional and knowledgeable about the timeshare industry. I found them online when I was looking for help to get out of a timeshare contract. It was a huge relief to know they were backed by Trading Standards; there are so many timeshare scams online, it’s difficult to know who to trust.

I found Kwikchex when making a legal claim against [another business]. They provided excellent information which helped in the court case and lots of moral support. I doubt I would have gone all the way to the court hearing had it not been for the support they provided. I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking redress particularly with [another business] as they have considerable experience.

I asked KwikChex for advise in the first place, they offered a full support of my claim against a scam company. They were very helpful and found me a legal team, and the support they gave me in these stressful times was fantastic.
