You may have seen an advert promoting something called ‘Established Titles’ on Facebook or elsewhere, and perhaps you are wondering if they are legitimate or a scam?
We have done our own research, and offer this information in the spirit of friendly consumer advice.
What we know about Established Titles (updated March 2022)
Established Titles traded for at least 7 months (between April 2020 and November 2020) from a website with no company name. Their website has now been updated and states that the company behind the website is Galton Voysey Limited.
Their Trustpilot reviews are revealing. Please read them here before buying. Whilst you’re looking at their Trustpilot review page, have a giggle at their contact address on there (it’s listed as Dumfries, DG2 8AW, United Kingdom). Dumfries is a town of some 32000 people. You have to wonder whether they don’t want to be found and contacted?
The only address on their website is Lessendrum, Huntly, AB54 6XR, Scotland. This would appear to be an area of land from which they purport to sell their souvenir plots. It doesn’t appear to be the postal address of a building to which post can be delivered and therefore cannot be the registered address of any company.
The only named person on the website is Ms Katerina Yip, although this appears to be a spoof page written for the purposes of providing amusement rather than information for customers.
Although they are charging $50, the standard offering is only a downloadable certificate. Anything printed costs $30 extra and a frame costs an additional $59!
They have been promoting a 80% discount “sale” on their website for over a year now, so make of that what you will.
It seems they are only pretending to have a presence in Scotland. There is no way of telling if they’ve ever even visited the country.
