International Administration Scam

International Administration ScamInternational Administration Scam

If you’ve been contacted by someone calling themselves Roger James, Christopher Blair or Tony Maynard (see comments at end of piece for references to Blair and Maynard) from a company referred to as International Administration relating to purchases from MRI Overseas Properties, be aware that this is a total scam. A few people have been in receipt of a phone call, with an email of the following, very dodgy looking, letter in Word format which seems to have been aimed at a database of former MRI clients. International Administration Scam Warning – stay well away from these guys, they’ll just cause you further financial loss.

This is not, by a long way, the first time that such companies have tried to extort further funds from MRI clients that, very often, are in trouble with their property purchases already. The MRI client database appears to have been sold quite widely, which means that such scammers are fairly common.

Note: If you do wish to apply to reclaim your payments for an incomplete Spanish Property (purchased from anybody, including MRI Overseas Properties), see the link at the bottom of this post to a legitimate operator that will take on a Ley 57/68 case against the bank on a genuine ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis.

International Administration Scam Letter

The letter goes as follows:

[quote style=”1″]If you have been the victim of fraud, you may be hesitant to trust someone new with your affairs. At International Administration our first goal is to establish an honest and trustworthy relationship with you.

We help our clients with their complaints by exhaustively investigating the manner in which the problem has arisen, building a case based on this information. We then start to incorporate your case details into the individual claims. Due to the number of complaints being received now, with our knowledge and experience we are able to get our clients complaints heard and dealt with in an efficient and effective manner. We will not waste time or resources in legal action unless we believe we can be successful. We will only take on cases we will win.

Once an offer of compensation is made, we then ensure that the offer is in line with our assessment. We are experts in presenting arguments on your behalf, discovering the relevant facts and running a thorough investigation in every case.

The legal team assembled has incredible successes in the field of fraud. We specialize by focusing on individual cases only and NOT group action claims. Therefore we can offer a more professional and efficient service. We believe group action claims are not to the benefit of the client but to the benefit of the legal team employed. Individual claims historically are awarded a higher payout but with no extra cost.

A legal representative, who has specific knowledge in the field of the complaint, will be assigned to you as your direct contact. This legal representative will be available to you on a day-to-day basis to keep you fully informed in regard to the progress being made.

We cannot tell you in advance how long your complaint will take because no two cases are the same. What we can promise is that we will do our very best to help you win your claim.

Clients can also benefit from a network of professional services once contracted to International Administration.

The procedure we comply to is as follows:-

a)                  Establish your complaint.

b)                  Compile the information and issue contracts.

c)                  Upon receipt of the signed contracts a complaint file will be opened.

d)                 Translate all documents, Formulate the case and register your complaint officially (in the country the fraud was committed)

e)                  We will then receive paperwork confirming you have made a complaint. (inc. reference numbers etc)

f)                   You will now be registered into the system.[/quote]

In fact, Mr. James is so lazy that the above letter isn’t even original, it has been nicked – lock, stock and barrel – from the nondescript Phoenix Legal Services website. I’ve not done a lot of research into Phoenix Legal Services, but it appears it runs much the same ‘modus operandi‘ as Roger James and his International Administration outfit, so perhaps the similarity in content is not a coincidence.

International Administration Scam Contact Details

The letter purports to come from International Administration, International House, Avda. Mijas, 18-1, Alegria, Mijas Costa. 29640 from an email: The phone numbers given are: Phone: +(34) 661356961 Fax: 0872 110 3935

It also claims that “International Administration is the trading name of R.D. James. NIE X3595115P.”

This time around it appears that Mr. James couldn’t be bothered to spring for a €20 domain name to give his contact details even a semblance of legitimacy. He used to operate from the domain, but this appears to have become too much of a draw on the company’s resources, so it has been ditched. Times must be tough.

You may also be forwarded an equally hairy looking letter from CR Forbes, claiming to recommend the services of Intertational Administration.

The address is, allegedly, in Fuengirola, at least that’s what they tell you when you phone them up. The phone numbers do, in fact, work. Mr. James wasn’t available for comment when I rang them. They said they’d get him to ring back but, surprise, surprise, he didn’t.

In case that lot isn’t enough to convince you, there’s no need to take my word for it – Mr. James has ‘previous’, as they say, in this murky industry. If you take a look here you’ll find a report on him written back in 2010 by Tony Hetherington in the Daily Mail – here’s the interesting bit:

[quote style=”1″]The three companies were connected, but the connection was a thousand miles from Manchester at Fuengirola on the Costa del Sol. That is where I traced Roger David James, the man behind Glovista and Earlstream, and the man who, he admitted, also did marketing work for European Mediation.[/quote]

It is quite interesting that European Mediation pokes it’s head up here as it was another scam operation, doing exactly the same as Roger James appears to be doing once again – cold calling a database of former Fortuna Estates, MRI Overseas Properties and Instant Access/Inside Track customers, to name a few – particularly following the arrest of the principals of Fortuna Estates/Fortuna Land/Oanna for fraud in Spain.

Just be aware, if you give these guys any money you’ll never see it again and you’ll get absolutely nothing for the money you pay them.

Caveat Emptor.

Update: It appears that these calls or emails may also come in the name of ‘Christopher Blair’ and ‘Tony Maynard’, see comments below and many thanks to our readers Christopher and Ian, who highlighted these.

Other comanies: Another you can add to the above list is  Fastline Legal Services – a Nicola Kennard seems to do a lot of the cold calling. Same modus operandi, same MRI database, same end result. See here for warning from the Financial Conduct Authority. There is also a company called Delta Litigation, the usual caller is Julia Hill, Teresa Lawson, Laura Edwards or Tania Lorena Capozzoli – thanks to the readers for pointing this one out and see warning here.

(Thanks to Peter and Alan for these names and contact details)

Catriona Hannington and Natasha Goodwin from Litigation Services seem to be contacting people claiming that MRI’s assets have been frozen and there is access to a fund to repay clients. There is no such fund, rest assured. These guys just want an up-front payment from you and you’ll never hear from them again – unless it is to get more money to ‘begin a case to recover your funds’. It is very believable, but completely untrue.

  1. Great article – thanks for the heads-up. They are quite persistent and have a believable story, how “the boss of MRI is being taken to court for the Furniture Pack scam” in August. They want 199 pounds, upfront, for collating the paperwork and will guarantee 80-90% refund…..

    Another name to watch out for is Christopher Blair – he’s fairly pushy especially if you give the smallest hint of participating.

    • Thanks Steve, the £199 level they’ve pitched this at is quite interesting. It’s just low enough that most people with a problem will say ‘sure it’s worth a shot, even if I lose it it’s not the end of the world’. For these guys, if they put enough of these together, with no costs of any description (because they won’t actually do anything once they’ve received the money) then they’ve a nice little earner going. Thanks for the tip on Christopher Blair, which is probably not his real name, worth noting for future reference.

    • good afternoon all,
      I have been contacted recently by litigation services, the caller is a Rebecca lawerence.

      they must think I have money, they looking for €752, ( all coming back of course).


  2. Just been contacted this morning 28/6/2013 and all the above is smack on although we hadnt got to the money part yet as i hadnt quite woken up

    i only managed to find this site by googling the office address

    hes also now attaching a letter of endorsement from PP-Party and referencing fransisco gill

    ia there anyone i can report him to

    • Unfortunately, reporting him won’t do much good, and they’re well aware of this. The UK authorities don’t want to know because he’s based in Spain, even though he’s mainly targetting their citizens. The Spanish don’t want to know because he’s British and doesn’t target Spanish citizens, so they really couldn’t be bothered.

      He’s fairly happy in the knowledge that he’s likely to get away with slipping between the cracks for a long time to come. Unless, of course, the UK and Spanish authorities start to cooperate on such matters. You’d never know, stranger things have happened.

  3. Have had several phone calls from Christopher Blair, insisting that £199 will solve all my MRI problems……. Thanks for the warning,



  4. I was in the process of buying an apartment from MRI & it basically went tits up,
    I had a call from a gentleman this morning called Tony Maynard regarding my dealing with MRI & received an email with some information about his company called Registro Legal,
    I thought I’d better check this out & to my surprise the letter he used is almost identical to
    the one shown in the article.
    any information or advice on this would be greatly appreciated

  5. As above. Call and email from Tony Maynard. £199 and my MRI losses were behind me. Scumbag?

  6. Tony Maynard is a dick! He appears so plausible, but when you read this article, you realise what a despicable worm he must be: It is incomprehensible that he would want to earn a living by preying on people, especially when he knows you have already been scammed and lost money from other equally unscrupulous characters. Hope the scumbag rots!
    Kim Shaw

  7. Hi
    So glad I found this…that guy Tony Maynard contacted me this morning …same story as everyone else plus same attachment!
    I’m spreading the news to others involved in the MRI scam..he has already been in contact with some of them!

  8. So glad i read this article had numerous calls from Tony Maynard got a bit suspicious because he was so persistent thanks for the advice guys.

  9. Wow! glad I read this site, many thanks. Tony Maynard has pushed me for £199 and his letter is almost exactly the same, Will get my own back when I visit spain this summer, his parents must be ashamed they raised such a despicable person to walk this earth.
    Hey what goes around…… maybe you’ll follow Darragh MacAnthony to the 8 x 6 cell.
    Cheers guys for the head-up.

  10. hello, we were contacted by fastline legal services aswell claiming Darren macantonys Marbella villa had been seized etc and there was a fund set up for mri victims to claim back there money?have to pay upfront translation and legal fees of around 1000 euro etc and when money is returned we will give them 5% of our claim.they seem to be a legitimate legal firm. have read on of other mri victims who are using fastlines services and a couple of them seem to have got compensation.

    have you any experience of this company? thanks

  11. I have had several conversations with ‘Tony’ in relation to claiming compensation for losses against the former owners of Dream Homes World Wide, also based in Malaga. We ‘bought’ properties in Bulgaria and Dubai through Dream Homes, both of which have failed to complete and we had written off our losses.

    Then, several weeks ago, we were contacted by Tony stating that Registro Legal had been appointed by the Spanish Courts to act for complainants against Dream Homes. He has advised that we strong grounds to lodge 2 complaints and that these complaints need to be registered with the court. He explained that we can pop over to Spain to register the complaints in person, or they can do it for us for (surprise surprise) £199. He has a very easy-going approach and there is no pressure, which I guess is part of the mask of respectability.

  12. I was approached by a company called Fastline Legal based in Spain. They told me I could get money back I had paid to MRI over an apartment in Bulgaria. They said Mr Macanthony was in breach of contract and his Spanish villa had been seized.
    I was suspicious and checked it out. I can find no record of his villa being seized. Surely if it had been it would have appeared in Irish newspapers. Is it another scam?

  13. I have been contacted by a firm called delta litigation about the same thing has anyone heard of them.

    • I have been contacted by Delta Litigation (Julia Hill) stating exactly the same, Paula – I had bought property through Instant Access/Inside Track ad the cold called to advise they can get money back for me, due to funds frozen in Spain – they are asking for £782 to cover notary fees, translation fees and court costs – I won’t be sending them anything and have in fact reported them to Fraud Action in the UK.

      • My husband and I are victims of Instant Acess/Inside Track, buying 5 UK off-plan apartments through them – all of which have been disasterous financially (we are pensioners). All in negative equity, all unsellable, all poorly built and one with such huge structural problems that we have battled through a group action against the developer. Julia Hill of Delta Litigation phoned us and offered the prospect of getting back a considerable amount of money from funds in Spain. We sent paperwork to back up all our expenses connected with the so-called property club and have been asked for the sum above -£782 – to cover translating our documents into Spanish as the ‘lawyer’ had pronounced that we had a good case. We felt all this was too good to be true and have tried to check out the validity of this outfit. Our trawl through the internet has made us aware of other similar scams operating out of Spain. We could not check out this company in Company House. Does anyone out there have experience of this organisation? How did they (or Julia Hill might be the only person in the whole show) get our details/phone number in the first place ? We can’t afford to be exploited twice!

        • Hi Susan,

          I’m afraid Delta Litigation and Julia Hill are exactly the same type of boiler room scam as International Administration. You’d be very wise to keep your money and ignore them, you’ll never see a penny of anything you give them again.

  14. Thanks for your comment and advice. We have written to The Guardian consumer page with all the details in the hope that this might save other ‘victims’ from further exploitation from out fits on the look out for the vulnerable.

  15. We have also been contacted by Laura Edwards of Delta Litigation with precisely the same approach as Susan W had. Thanks for the warning.

  16. Contacted by Fastline Legal regarding Instant Access and non completion of Fortuna Golf complex. Promised my money back for upfront payment of €702 and 5% of total Refund. They guaranteed €74k compo. sounded to good to be true. Thankfully I found your internet comments on these types of scams. Still going strong.

  17. Hi,

    I just received a phone call this afternoon from Teresa Lawson who claims to represent Delta Litigation. Told they could get us compensation from MRI who had their assets frozen. Her claim was that they were found guilty of misrepresentation. They also claim to have 137 sucesfull cases with an average of 30k to 40k for each case.

    I’m glad I found this helpful forum. Thanks for setting it up and keeping it active.

  18. Sorry, just to follow up on that last mail with some more info….

    That lady Theresa did not look for any upfront payment. The deal was that I get the documents over to them and they would get their lawyers to review them. Only at that point and only if they feel there is a case that they then look for payment to cover initial legal fees, translations etc.

    Thank Barry

    • I’ve not come across these Barry, but it sounds very much like the very same modus operandi.

      • I too have been contacted by Natasha Goodwin – she actually called me today. Same story wants upfront money to cover translation fees etc. There company would take 10% of any reward, so I offered her 15% to cover the fees – but she declined. Looked them up and find they are part of Delta Litigation, same building, same company reg. Sorry my money is staying safe in my pocket.

    • Hi,

      We had a girl call up from litigation services sl in Malaga called Caroline Clarke contact us with the same story as you Barry, beware it’s a big scam. Don’t hand over any money .


    • I received a phone call from ‘Litigation Services’ last week, a lady by the name of Shirley Webb, regarding timeshare property, and offering their services to make a claim. The address supplied is the exact same address as Delta Litigation mentioned in a lot of the other messages on this page! I am very suspicious of all cold callers so gave no information out and asked her to just post me any information she had. Received a letter yesterday, showed it to my son and started checking the internet—- can’t say that I am surprised to find so many people taken in by these people, they sound so professional and convincing. As for me I will file my letter where it should be — IN THE BIN.

  20. Hi I have been contacted by a Catriona Hannington from Litigation Services ,exactly the same offer as above , sounded very plausible and I wonder how much of what she says is true Has MRI assets been frozen and is there a fund to repay clients who have lost their deposits

  21. Hi, for info of your readers, I have within the last week or two been contacted on behalf of “Litigation Services” by a woman calling herself ” Caroline Clark” promising compensation of 1000`s for a property I bought through “MRI”.
    The details of address etc are as above, as is the requirement for an upfront fee.
    So far I have not alerted “Caroline Clark” that I am suspicious of her, I am still investigating the best means to track these people down, and ultimately close them down.
    Any ideas?

    • I’ve also had a call today from Caroline Clark relating to a property we bought through MRI back in 2004. Google is certainly your friend when you gt a with of rat.

    • Hi Allen,

      That lady Caroline Clarke with the same story as you, we were wondering were she got our details and contact numbers, we then realised it is a scam and just wanted money. Big scam don’t pay.

  22. Has anyone had a successful outcome dealing with Litigation Services S.L. based in Fuengirola. Reg Number B93268936. I do not know weather to proceed because they seem legit.

    • Robert, these guys are a lot of things, legit is not one of them. Steer well clear. Anybody asking you to pay up front using ‘Klick&Pay’ is a fraud. It is the equivalent of handing them untraceable cash.

  23. Thanks for warning! You can check the phone number at and see if anybody has reported this for scam.

  24. My Husband had a call today and they emailed us the following details. We are in Ireland, I know we will never see any money and these people ringing giving false hope to so many people who lost there well earned hardworking wages, if your reading this Caroline or whoever is from your company you are a disgrace to your name…

    Further to our telephone conversation please see attached.

    • I’ve been contacted by Caroline Clarke, same story. Caroline stated they could recover missold rental benefits from my Orlando villa I purchased via MRI in Florida. When I asked how much it would cost me, she said only upfront costs for translation into Spanish. Litigation Services contract was emailed to me. I told them it was a scam but she is so persistent and immune from scam accusations . I guess for everyone 100 people that refuse to fall for it, a few will that makes it worth there while.

  25. Hi
    I have also been contacted by Caroline of Litigation services in respect of a deposit on a property in the Dominican Republic. She requested approximately 860 euro translation and notary fee. She stated as mentioned that all McAnthony assets had been liquidated and that funds were frozen in court to repay people that had lost their deposits through misrepresentation. I asked to see a copy of the Court Order and suggested that I would travel to Spain to discuss the matter face to face with the Solicitor. She said that she could arrange this but would need two weeks advance notice. I am going to suggest that I arrange for the documents to be translated and notarized as true copies myself. She also stated that the Solicitors would charge a 10% fee. I asked could this be deducted from my settlement cheque and she said that they were not permitted to do this. I then requested that the funds be lodged in my bank account prior to payment of any costs. She claimed that it would take about a year to get a court date. Has anyone any information about this court order whereby the funds are held in a Spanish Court?

  26. She sounds so genuine and believable, so professional. It’s worrying to think how many might be taken and and, in my opinion, such a waste of her capabilities when she could be employed doing something more morally rewarding.

  27. We too have been contacted by ‘natasha goodwin’ who has reviewed our documents for our purchases in Bulgaria and then asked for this upfront fee ..

    Is there anything anyone can claim for Bulgaria mis-selling? I see the link on the page regarding help claiming for unbuilt Spanish properties…

    Here’s the letter we had from Natasha. She also sent letters of how to check out the lawyer, a letter entitled legal truth, terms and conditions etc…

    Dear x,
    Further to our telephone conversation earlier, I am pleased to confirm according to our lawyer you have sufficient evidence for a claim of compensation. The claim is for misrepresentation and from the documentation you submitted to us for assessment you are entitled to a recompense of 26,800.00 Euros.
    To enable us to proceed with the abovementioned claim, you would be required to cover certain costs for court processing and the preparation of your file for the Spanish court system, which include such things as translation and notarisation of your documents. The total cost for this service is 778.69 GBP and would be refunded to you in full, upon completion of your claim, along with your compensation.
    We are unable to cover the abovementioned costs on your behalf as it is regarded as coercion and all of the costs are outside of our company, not a fee to ourselves.
    We anticipate 10-12 months to process your claim.
    Once the funds have been released to you, the court will notify us. At that stage, we invoice you for our fee of 10% and you will have 14 working days to remit that to us once you have received your compensation. This fee is set out by a governing body and is not negotiable.
    If, for any reason, our lawyer is unable to present your claim, Litigation Services S.L. will reimburse your costs in full, as stated in clause vii of our Terms & Conditions.
    Should you have any queries regarding the above, please do not hesitate to contact me.
    Kind regards
    Natasha Goodwin
    Senior Claims Advisor

    • Hi Emma, thanks for your post.

      There is nothing similar to the Spanish Ley 57/68 legislation allowing a reclaim against the bank in Bulgaria to the best of my knowledge. If you bought through a Spanish company (such as MRI who did sell their own properties in Bulgaria), your payments may have been made to Spain and there is a possibility of making a claim, but not otherwise.

  28. Caroline Clarke of Litigation Services is now looking for €983 before proceeding with our case against MRI for mis-selling property in Bulgaria. This she says is to cover translation costs. Her colleague phoned again to day and is putting the pressure on to pay. He says we are covered to have our money refunded if case fails but I have checked with my bank and we are only covered for 120 days. The court case will take over a year before we get a date so that is not an option.
    Really feel that this a complete scam.
    What do you think?

  29. We have also been contacted by litigation services for a compensation claim for property we agreed to buy in Portugal in 2007 from MRI.
    Litigation Services contacted us last week- same modus operandi. The girls name is Rebecca Lawrence who claimed we could get 100% of the money we paid back from MRI assets which had been seized in Malaga.
    We believe the lawyer in Portugal did not act in our interest at the time of purchase and have been told there may be a case against her for mal practice . We paid a law firm in Lisbon to look at the case four years ago but have not even had an acknowledgement. Our advice- try to put the sorry experience behind you and don’t get sucked in.

  30. I was contacted by litigation services again same story €983 upfront for translation with a 10% payment due to them when claim was awarded etc. But what id like to Know is how did they get all my details. When they rang they were able to tell me which Country I bought in & the complex i bought the apartment in trough MRI & Who i bought it with.
    I know never to pay anything upfront which i will not be doing.
    Surly my information should be confidential
    Did MRI leak this information If so can we go after them for that
    Is this company a total scam
    Has anyone out there went through with the upfront payment
    Has anyone out there got any money back from them
    Everything looks and sounds so professional


    • Many operators such as Litigation Services in Fuengirola have access to old MRI databases. When MRI was going under a number of its staff took the only thing of value left, its huge database of clients and potential clients. These databases have been widely circulated on the black market ever since so former clients are often contacted by such companies with full knowledge of what the client has purchased, when and where.

      Incidentally, it is illegal to use such a database for cold calling marketing purposes, so you can report the company to OFCOM –

      • Thanks for the reply I was letting it go then came across another website the legal truth which has nothing but good comments about Litigation Services
        The more i look into it the more confused i get.

        Please help

        • Joy of the internet Peter, it’s not a democracy.

        • By the way Peter, is a shill site for Litigation Services to make them look legitimate. When you search the internet and find only one blog with anything good to say about a company it is pretty much guaranteed that the company is using it to offset the negative commentary about them. No reputable company reclaiming deposits from Spain will ever cold call you, it is illegal to do so in Spain.

  31. Interesting comment from several people. I was also contacted by Rebecca Lawrence who claims we are entitled to compensation for the lack of holiday rental bookings from MRI, but we had an upfront fee. I also looked at “The legal Truth” website and agree it is probably a spoof site to give credence to Litigation services. Has anybody had any evidence of any successful claims made by Litigation services?

  32. I foolishly paid up 1200 plus , came back looking for an additional 700 — was so desperate as things have gone so horribly wrong and was more than vulnerable ,I cant believe people being so cruel

  33. Litigation Services have been hounding me….same story as above. Tread carefully.

  34. A friend of mine in Ireland purchased in Bulgaria I think, a number of years ago, maybe 12 years.., anyway, she has been receiving emails, and frequent phone calls – frankly she finds it amusing but suspects it’s dodgy.
    Finally today (18/10/18) she passed me the details and asked what I thought… like 10 months after she first mentioned it to me.
    Whoever this Rebecca Lawrence is, she sure is persistent, her latest email below:

    Entitlement: 8,630.40 Euros
    Dear Ms (I removed her name)
    Further to our previous communication, I can confirm the lawyer will commence the claims process upon receipt of an initial payment of 250.66 Euros followed by two further monthly installments of same, thereafter.
    Claims against the abovementioned Company are now in their final stages. Therefore, it would be in your interest to act sooner rather than later in order for us to ensure a successful outcome with regards to your entitlement.
    If this arrangement is suitable, you may pay by Visa or Mastercard. Alternatively, you may pay via bank transfer.
    I look forward to hearing from you.
    Kind regards

  35. I received this …it’s a Caroline Clarke ringing…very believable as no money asked for up front.

    We have yet to receive copies of your documents, relating to MRI for the free assessment with our lawyer to ascertain whether you have a claim of compensation.

    Please be aware, these claims operate on a first come, first served basis, as funds are limited.

    Due to the volume of enquiries and in order that we assist as many claimants as possible, it is necessary for the lawyer to set deadlines for receipt of documents for the free service. Please forward copies of receipts and/or invoices etc. by Friday 22nd March 2019.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards
