As previously reported in this news section, Rickard Thorsell has been caught calling Scandinavian clients of The Nordic Consulting as part of a scam where he claims to work for “a government agency” before asking for money to provide “legal assistance”. The reality is that Rickard is the timeshare salesmen accused of mis-selling many products when he worked for Silverpoint Vacations SL in Tenerife, Spain.
After leaving Spain, Rickard went on to work from Malta, for Azure Golden Sands & Spa (now Island Residence Club at Radisson Blu Resort & Spa). Becoming known by more and more people he eventually returned to mainland Spain where he now appears to be working for Foster Legals.
Ali Farhoud, CEO of The Nordic Consulting, visited various Scandinavian clients at their homes this June. Concerned by what was happening, especially by Rickard´s apparently fraudulent claims to be working for “a government agency”, he accompanied several of his clients to their local police stations to do the right thing – file an official police complaint.
If you have been contacted by Rickard Thorsell, or think that you are being targeted by a scam company making fraudulent claims, we remind you that one of the first things you can do is to notify the police in your home country. If you are unsure of what you should do, feel free to contact The Nordic Consulting for more information and advice.
