Two companies that make up part of the Save Britain Money group, owned by reality television personality Nev Wilshire, have been placed into administration.
We Claim U Gain Ltd and Fuelswitch.com Ltd, which comprised part of the Swansea-based group, entered administration on 31 October, with Richard Hawes and Robin Allen of Deloitte appointed as joint administrators.
Hawes, restructuring partner at Deloitte, said: “We are now in the process of winding up these two companies.
“Prior to our appointment they had already scaled down operations significantly and all 220 employees who are large already re-deployed to other parts of the business, have been formally transferred to other companies within the Save Britain Money Limited group.”
We Claim U Gain handled claims management and payment protection insurance claims, while Fuelswitch.com operated as an online energy price comparison business.
Owner Wilshire found fame in fly-on-the-wall documentary “The Call Centre”.
2,700 complaints were issued against We Claim U Gain and, another group company, Nationwide Energy Services, for making nuisance calls. As a result, the companies were fined £225,000 by the Information Commissioner’s Office in June 2013.
