DAVID COX AND BERNADETTE COX DISSOLVE COMPANIES FASTER THAN ALKA SELTZER IN A GLASS OF WATER
Having had some research carried out on David Cox and his wife, Bernadette Cox, we have discovered that their business dealings are not what one would expect to find, judging by the online publications of Mr Cox & Mrs Cox, who we often see firing from the hip and spreading tales of woe about everyone but themselves. However, our research has revealed some eyebrow-raising facts about the Cox’s past directorships, of which there have been many. We are all familiar with the phrase ‘people in glass houses should not throw stones’. Well, Mr and Mrs Cox certainly do live in a ‘glass house’ and they definitely do like ‘throwing stones’. On their TESS Paralegal Services website, they can be seen pontificating about the business affairs of others, but a cursory glance of their business track record would leave us all wondering just how the Coxs can be criticising others, when their own track record is a lot worse.
It can be seen from below the sheer scale of unpaid debts and dissolved companies these pair have left in their wake. They have now moved from the building industry into Legal Services, which is an unlikely pairing. Nevertheless, it is opportunity to avoid the attention of the thousands of pounds that they have left unpaid within the construction industry. The Coxs have no legal qualifications, as far as we can see, nor do they have any past experience within the legal profession or in providing legal services. Yet, reading their website, they would have us all believe that they are authorities in the legal profession.
Our research goes back to 2013/ 14, when David Cox became the owner of a company called the Timeshare Consumer Association, which he later sold to the owner of a dubious company called Monster Rewards SL. There are numerous online articles and warnings about this company and David Cox’s association with them. We also believe, from reading online reports, that David Cox may have been arrested and is under police investigation for his dealings with Monster Rewards SL. It is quite extraordinary that two people who have no experience or knowledge in the legal profession, have set themselves up to convince the public that they are credible operators of a business that they know nothing about and, in a short few years, are already under police investigation. However, it is not that surprising when you consider that, if you get involved with things that you know nothing about and convince people into believing that you do, you will eventually be found out and that is what is now happening to the Coxs.
The Coxs now have a new found niche in timeshare, where they were unknown and unheard of, until very recently, and before David Cox burst onto the scene with the intention of rubbishing everyone in timeshare. His style of gaining himself credence is by criticising everyone else, but, as we can see, people are getting increasingly tired of the Cox’s self-righteousness. We have come across other sites like ours and they, like us, choose to remain anonymous. The reason we and others do this, is because of the Cox’s appalling behaviour and their personal attacks on all and sundry within timeshare. People can elect to take expensive legal action against them and their company, but David Cox is a ‘man of straw’ and will simply fold his company if faced with a successful legal action, so we and others choose to get the truth out to people in this way.
We have recently come upon this article, which casts some concerns about David Cox and his company, TESS Paralegal Services Limited http://www.downtown-oakland-hotels.com/this-is-an-important-blow-for-this-law-firm/. The article, whilst badly written, clearly accuses David Cox and TESS of “economic malpractice”. It also states that “a supplier recently paid to TESS the sum of 1.5 million and received substandard service from David Cox and TESS”. We believe that the latter statement was made by the owner of Monster Rewards SL, who employed Cox and TESS to undertake timeshare work for them.
The internet is awash with people tired of the Coxs. Here are some of the links we have found, which put the Cox’s behaviour under the spotlight. See links below: –
HERE BELOW ARE THE MANY DEBT RIDDEN COMPANIES SET UP BY THE COXS OVER THE YEARS AND LATER DISSOLVED
Directors of U JET LIMITED were David Cox & Bernadette Cox Status: Dissolved Unpaid debts left owing
We begin with U Jet Limited (04125347) which was categorised as a ‘PLANT HIRE’ company at Companies House. The company traded from: CHANDLER HOUSE, 5 TALBOT ROAD, LEYLAND, LANCASHIRE, PR25 2ZF. A copy of Companies House articles can be found here https://companycheck.co.uk/company/04125347/U-JET-LIMITED/companies-house-data. It can be clearly seen that the Coxs were both Directors and Company Secretary of U Jet Limited. What is also clear is that the Coxs left an outstanding Mortgage/ Debenture on the company, which remains live until this day. The extent of that charge left by the Cox’s was for several thousands of pounds so we believe. The current status of the company is dissolved, but owing several hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Directors of D & B COX LIMITED were David Cox & Bernadette Cox Status Dissolved Unpaid debts left owing
We now move to company number two, D & B COX LIMITED (02013325). This company was categorised as a ‘BUILDING CONSTRUCTION’ company. The company traded from: 51 KINGS STREET, BLACKPOOL, FY1 3EJ. A copy of Companies House articles can be found here. As with U Jet Limited, D & B Cox Limited failed, leaving behind it several hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of unpaid debt by way of 9 unpaid Legal Charges to National Westminster Bank. These charges remain outstanding today https://companycheck.co.uk/company/02013325/D–B-COX-LIMITED/companies-house-data
It should also be known that this company D & B COX LIMITED was also subject to a winding-up petition.
There is an interesting twist to the D & B COX LIMITED debacle above, as we now discover that D & B COX LIMITED is trading again according to Companies House and only very recently has it been resurrected; on the 08 March 2018 to be precise. After 9 unpaid mortgage charges and 32 years, the Coxs feel that the heat is off and it is now time to rejuvenate their previously failed, debt-ridden company.
Directors of the NEW D & B COX LIMITED are David Cox and Mrs Jacqueline Glynn. Trading Status: Active/ Trading (for how long, one wouldn’t like to hazard a guess).
D & B COX LIMITED (10658737) the resurrected D & B COX LIMITED, complete with new company number, new Directors and no longer a ‘BUILDING CONSTRUCTION’ company, but now an ‘INVESTIGATIONS COMPANY’. The company’s registered address is Tudor Croft 39-41 HEADROOMGATE ROAD, LYTHAM ST ANNES, FY8 3BD, an address we are not familiar with as yet. We are now intrigued as to what the Coxs are now investigating. It sounds all very serious and important, but they might want to trial their new found skills investigating themselves before the Police do it. Details of the new company can be seen here https://companycheck.co.uk/company/10658737/D–B-COX-LTD/companies-house-data.
Directors of D & B COX (CONTRACTING) LIMITED are David Cox and Mrs Bernadette Cox. Trading Status: Dissolved Unpaid Debts left owing
One last D & B COX company to complete the trilogy of failures is D & B COX (CONTRACTING) LIMITED (02346037). There is scant information at Companies House about this company, but we have tracked its trading address to LAYCOCK HOUSE, LAYCOCK GATE, LAYTON, BLACKPOOL, FY3 8AT. We understand that the Directors are again David Cox and Bernadette Cox and, in true Cox fashion, have left a trail of unpaid debts in sums of tens of thousands of pounds. https://companycheck.co.uk/company/02346037/D–B-COX-CONTRACTING-LIMITED/companies-house-data
Directors: of BLACKPOOL FURNITURE RENTALS LIMITED are David Cox and Mrs Bernadette Cox. Trading Status: Dissolved
Next up, and as we leave the D & B COX era behind, we see the incorporation of BLACKPOOL FURNITURE RENTALS (02916722). According to the business classification, this business dealt in ‘FURNITURE RENTALS’. Again, there appears to be little information about this company at Companies House. We have no information of the debt left behind on this company, but we suspect it to be no less than all of the others. The trading address is listed as 327 CLIFTON DRIVE SOUTH, LYTHAM ST ANNES, LANCASHIRE, FY8 1HN. https://companycheck.co.uk/company/02916722/BLACKPOOL-FURNITURE-RENTALS-LIMITED/companies-house-data#mortgages-and-charges
Directors: of RH BUXTON LIMITED are, amongst others: David Cox and Bernadette Cox Trading Status: Dissolved, Unpaid Debts outstanding.
Next up, we are back to the usual sharing of failed companies once again, with the new name just a variation on a previous company name. They are now using the trading style of RH BUXTON LIMITED (02716078) and the Coxs are now trading as ‘CIVIL ENGINEERING CONTRACTORS’. The finances of this company are, again, not available, but there is an outstanding debenture in favour of David Cox this time, which would indicate he is owed money. However, we doubt the Coxs would lose out. The registered office is listed as 39 HEADROOMGATE ROAD, LYTHAM ST ANNES, FY8 3BD. From Google maps, this appears to be a suburban street and not a commercial or industrial unit or area out of which to operate a civil engineering company; most puzzling. https://companycheck.co.uk/company/02716078/R-H-BUXTON-LIMITED/companies-house-data#summary
Directors: RH BUXTON (NORTHUMBERLAND) LIMITED are, amongst others: David Cox and Bernadette Cox Trading Status: Dissolved, Unpaid Debts outstanding.
We now see the Cox’s using RH BUXTON (NORTHUMBERLAND) LIMITED. Sound familiar? D & B COX (CONTRACTING) LIMITED? This company lists the business activity as ‘OTHER SERVICE ACTIVITIES N.E.C’, whatever this means. An unpaid charge to an invoice factoring company, IGF Invoice Financing Limited, remains outstanding>> https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/04320674. RH BUXTON (NORTHUMBERLAND) LIMITED (04320674) The registered office is listed at 3 BEACH ROAD, ST ANNES ON SEA, BLACKPOOL, LANCASHIRE. FY8 2NR. https://companycheck.co.uk/company/04320674/R-H-BUXTON-NORTHUMBERLAND-LIMITED/companies-house-data
THE COXS SO-CALLED LEGAL EMPIRE IS NOW FOLLOWING A SIMILAR PATTERN TO THEIR BUILDING EMPIRE, AS ABOVE, AND WILL BE FURTHER IN DECLINE ONCE THEY ARE ARRESTED FOR FRAUD, FOLLOWING THEIR ASSOCIATION WITH FRAUDULENT TIMESHARE SCAM COMPANIES… MONSTER REWARDS SL, SELLMYTIMESHARE.TV, GLENMORE CONSULTING, HOLLYWOOD MARKETING SLU, TIMESHARELAWYER.NET, ABC LAWYERS, JIVE HIPO, MARK ROWE.
The Coxs have no legal qualifications or experience, but suddenly they are now legal experts when they become owners of the TIMESHARE CONSUMER ASSOCIATION LIMITED (9041038) on the 04/02/2016. This company changed its name from the TIMESHARE CONSUMER ASSOCIATION LIMITED to TIMESHARE MEDIATION LIMITED and, on 08/03/2017, this company changed its name, yet again, from TIMESHARE MEDIATION LIMITED to THE LONG TERM HOLIDAY PRODUCT ASSOCIATION LTD. This company’s registered office is listed as 3 Beach Road, Lytham St. Annes, Lancashire, FY8 2NR . See here. The question on everyone’s lips is: why change the name of a company twice within the matter of a period of year? As we can see from their track record, the Coxs are not trustworthy people and eventually abandon companies, leaving tens of thousands of pounds of debt in their wake. https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/09041038 these companies will be no different as the Coxs utilise each company for their own ends.
The other interesting thing to note about this company is that THE TIMESHARE CONSUMER ASSOCIATION LIMITED lists TESS PARALEGAL SERVICES LIMITED (09372001) https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/officers/Wo8ZyOj-_Gy4Qui_H28O5I69ctA/appointments as its one and only Director. People may recall from our earlier article ‘From Motorway Bridge Cleaner to Expert in Law’, about David Cox, that, when questioned by the Lancashire Trading Standards, Cox lied and told them that TIMESHARE CONSUMER ASSOCIATION clients would never be referred to TESS PARALEGAL SERVICES under any circumstances. Yet, TESS PARALEGAL SERVICES LIMITED was, at the time, the sole Director of the TIMESHARE CONSUMER ASSOCIATION. As we have said time and time again, David Cox has been untruthful.
|The Coxs also have a Legal Funding company. This is laughable and one just wonders what the hell goes on in this company. So David Cox shouts about how good he is but arranges finance for people who he takes on, on a NO WIN NO FEE basis. The question is: why would anyone need funding on a NO WIN NO FEE arrangement? Something does not make sense, as is usual with David and Bernadette Cox. The LEGAL CLAIM FUNDER LIMITED (09353678) with a registered office listed as CONISTON HOUSE, 3 BEACH ROAD, LYTHAM ST ANNES, LANCASHIRE. FY8 2NR. So, as above, we have three name changes here too. The company began its journey on the 12 December 2014 as TIMESHARE EXIT & SUPPORT SERVICES LIMITED and continued until 08 September 2015 when it became TIMESHARE LITIGATION FUNDING LIMITED, until 08 March when it went through another name change to its current name LEGAL CLAIM FUNDER LIMITED https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/09353678/filing-history
Another interesting observation is that there were 6 officers of the company and then 3 resignations. One of them sticks out more than others. We see an officer by the name of BERNADETTE MARY HOWARTH-COX and, in the very same period, we have one named BERNIE HOWARTH-COX. Why would someone go through the trouble of a change of name format of the same person, if one didn’t what to confuse people into thinking that the people listed are two different people? For whatever reason, is this another manifestation of dishonesty by the Coxs? Who knows, but why would a company change its name and directors so many times in such short periods of time? The only conclusion one can come to is there is something suspicious going on. https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/09353678/officers. This company’s activities are classified as ‘FINANCIAL INTERMEDIATION’ no longer is there any mention of the civil engineering or building and construction industry that the Coxs left behind, having left hundreds and thousands of pounds of debt in their wake.
The final Cox company we are aware of is TESS PARALEGAL SERVICES LIMITED (09372001) whose registered office is listed, yet again, as CONISTON HOUSE, 3 BEACH ROAD, LYTHAM ST ANNES, LANCASHIRE. FY8 2NR. As with the two previous companies, we see further name changes here too. So the company began its journey on the 02 January 2015 as TESS (TIMESHARE EXIT & SUPPORT SERVICES) LTD until 08 March 2017 when it became TESS PARALEGAL SERVICES LIMITED https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/09372001. If we take a look at LEGAL CLAIM FUNDER LIMITED above, we can see that TIMESHARE EXIT & SUPPORT SERVICES LIMITED made a brief appearance as the name of LEGAL CLAIM FUNDER LIMITED 12 December 2014 until 08 September 2015. Confused with all the name changes? You should be. What is evident is that these name changes are designed to intertwine and confuse the public.
There is no more a truer maxim that ‘OH WHAT A WEB WE WEAVE WHEN WE TRY TO DECEIVE’
TESS PARALEGAL SERVICES LIMITED has had 13 Directors and 10 resignations within less than two years, which include several of limited companies named above; quite unbelievable. https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/09372001/officers
WE DON’T THINK WE NEED TO TRY AND CONVINCE THE PUBLIC OF THE COX’S TRACK RECORD IN RUNNING COMPANIES. BOTH DAVID AND BERNADETTE COX ARE TWO OF THE WORST SERIAL DIRECTORS WE HAVE COME ACROSS. THIS IS NOT SOME MADE UP FANTASY LIKE THE COX’S BLOGS, THE EVIDENCE IS HERE FOR ALL TO SEE.
