  1. Makes your blood boil. Keep going. I've just been back through all my Guinness Mahon paperwork and on the very first statement it shows Wellington Court Fee. I'm going after them. Did you see Charles Smethurst, the man who ran off with our money is trying to remove his name from German Property Group on companies House and the other GPG creditors group on Facebook have put in objections. Meanwhile the administrators in Germany BBL have written to me. I'm unlikely to get my money back through that route.
  2. Hope it didn't ruin your new year's celebrations. But are they still active in Ireland? Is the fact they have closed the UK a game changer for you serving your CCJ? Does this put you back at the door of the FSCS.
  3. I've just read this and I'm not surprised. How and where did you find out that Wellington have ceased trading?
  4. Hi, are you are of this group ? GPG Creditors Association WWW.FACEBOOK.COM Collective area where those of us owed money from German Property Group (GPG), formerly Dolphin Trust, to share... Also to give you some hope, the FSCS paid back my wife's Guinness Mahon SIPP investment she only invested 25k though. .
  5. Yes, I saw. I'm not as far forward with my FOS case, but a colleague of mine's Guinness Mahon SIPP case has just come to the conclusion by FOS, that Wellington (we jokingly refer to them Welly Boots) as accountable. I let him know about this site as I expect he will get to the same point as Simmonds case and at some point me also. My wife also invested in Guinness Mahon, not via Wellington and FSCS paid compensation. Every case is different, it is a matter of waiting. Meanwhile in Germany the administrators are dealing with the whole GPG mess, which is behind the failed SIPP. Just Google Germany Property Group or Charles Smethurst. Jb
  6. I used a friend who was unregulated working for a company called Return On Capital. From what I now know, an unregulated body must use a regulated person to authorise the transfer from my then Scottish Widows pension. I have all the paperwork and nowhere does Wellington CFS appear. However FSCS said they found evidence of signatures. I can see fees taken but it shows Guinness Mahon only. FSCS won't compensate me as Wellington CFS are still trading and I had to first open a dialogue with them. As we know from other posts they don't respond. Jb
  7. In 2015 I invested £45,200 in a SIPP operated by Guinness Mahon, which is linked to Dolphin, later German Property Group. GPG went into administration to Feb 2020. My SIPP was due to mature in April 2020. I first took my claim to FSCS. They rejected my claim, I appealed and still got rejected. Their reason was that Wellington CFS signatures were involved in my pension transfer into the SIPP. This was a surprise to me. I then emailed and called Wellington, several times, eventually receiving an email stating I did not exist in their records. I then opened a case with FOS. My case has not yet been assigned a case handler. From what I learned from others caught up in GPG. Wellington are stating their signatures were used fraudulently. Yet there is evidence of them taking fees. If you want to read more there is a GPG creditors association Facebook site. You will find others on there in the same position. I did write to Wellington CFS and never got a reply. If you call their Ireland number you get an answer machine. Their office in Devon, does pick up but this is just a receptionist, takes a message and alas no one gets back to you. I also heard Wellington CFS is linked to Spain. I think the best outcome is that Wellington go into administration, at this point FSCS will be the last resort.
  8. You can make that 201 complaints. I also came to learn that Wellington CFS had a hand in my Scottish Widows pension transfer to Guinness Mahon. I had some contact with them and an email saying they had no record of me. My case is with FOS. I know of one other whose FOS claim against Wellington CFS has been upheld and FOS have instructed Wellington to pay back the initial investment + interest + costs. I personally think Wellington CFS days are numbered.
