– Can you describe this meeting:
As part of the recovery process. In the morning, I met the representative of Legal Floris at the offices of the Central Bank of Cyprus in Nicosia, where we submitted a claim under the Deposit Guarantee Fund process. Certain identification documents were provided to CBC, a claim form was completed and signed. We then drove to Limassol and visited the offices of Hellenic Bank, where I was interviewed by an officer of the bank. Over the next 45 minutes, we met with three other officers, completed and signed forms as appropriate. Everything was explaioned in detail. By the time that we left Hellenic Bank, I was already in possession of my new account numbers and an internet banking security device. Debit cards are being prepared and will be collected by Floris in a few days and sent to my home address. After we left the bank, our business being completed, we said goodbye and Floris found me a taxi, which took me back to my hotel in Larnaka. I had planned for this trip to take three days. However, due solely to the professionalism, efficiency and process knowledge of Legal Floris; as well as the open and welsoming attitude of the Hellenic Bank staff, the whole business was completed in just one day! I was then able to arrange and take an earlier flight back to my home.
– How would you describe your relationship with the representatives of Legal Floris LLC:
Floris is a personable and thoroughly professional man. His knowledge and manner engender trust. Our relationship is one of lawyer and client, but in addition, I could easily learn to call him a friend.
– Have you tried other recovery services:
– What made you decide to do business with Legal Floris LLC:
Online research. Their company website is well made. The editorials and articles present the FBME/CBC/FINCEN situations in a balanced and unbiased way; as opposed to the Cyprus media and FBME’s own website. There are many good testimonials. On that basis, I spoke with Floris in September 2015. We had several discussions, but at that time, as I had a ‘non-euro’ account, the weekly cheque deposits method was not available to me. When the banking licence for FBME was withdrawn and the Deposit Guarantee Fund process activated, I contacted Legal Floris again and agreed to use their services.
– Explain the challenge you experienced:
Inability to access or transfer funds from FBME bank, since July 2014.
– Describe the solution presented:
To make a claim for return of funds through the Bank Guarantee Fund process. To open a new personal bank account with a different, established and reliable bank in Cyprus, in readiness to receive the funds. To make claims in the future against FBME, in respect of expenses and other payments made in pursuit of this claim.
– Describe the result based on the solution provided by Legal Floris LLC:
At the time of writing, May-16, 2016, we are awaiting the transfer of funds via the DGF.
– How would you describe the work ethics and professionalism of Legal Floris LLC in general:
Legal Floris and their Cyprus representative go out of their way to promote and develop trust between lawyer and client. Honest evaluation and reliablity form the core of that relationship.
– What is unique in their approach:
The provision of a personal service, which guides and accompanies the client through all stages of the process, through knowledge gained over a number of years.
– Why should prospects decide to work with Legal Floris LLC:
I have caried out research and know of no other company or individual, working in this field in the (Cyprus) banking and legal sectors. Legal Floris LLC has the contacts, experience and knowledge to make what could easily be a difficult, frustrating and time consuming process, into a simple step-by-step solution to the problem of accessing funds held by FBME.
– Your conclusion:
Quite seriously, if you want to be able to arrange access to your withheld funds, you should choose to use the services of Legal Floris LLC.
