This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Bridgend County Borough Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Bridgend County Borough Council,

Since 2002 the Fields Group Companies now part of Fields Holdings have operated a pseudo Law Firm starting with Fields Law / Action Direct UK and now Endeavour Law Ltd

I appreciate you will only hold complaints from consumers and not businesses.

I also understand you do not record the European, US or Worldwide consumers and businesses affected by Fields despite the Bridgend based company processing all payments from companies and individuals including those for fake technical and research and development reports paid for by credit and debit cards over the phone.

I wish to know the total number of complaints received by trading standard and consumer direct.

To include site visits, investigations and trading standards interventions and reccomendations recorded against Fields Group many trading names, entities and subsidiaries - most operated by Fields Associates Ltd

Date Range from 1st Jan 2002 to 30th June 2019

If it helps a previous result yielded nearly 1000 complaints received by Bridgend Trading Standards and over 60 service requests and more than 25 enforcement visits but still just a small percentage of the £multimillion #fieldsdatarecoveryscam

Please list outcomes for

Consumer complaints
Trading Standards Service Requests
Trading Standards Enforcement Visits

Trading Standards Officer hours / cost to trading standards in attending to complaints of Fields Group Operations

Details to also include

Total Amount of the value of the claims from complainants and total amounts refunded
property seized and returned

Were any reports sent to National Trading Standards for England and Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland to alert others of the deception / fraud against consumers and businesses ?
