Falsche Versprechen bei der Datenrette  -  German TV expose of an example of a Fields Data Recovery Scam)

 Since this article was first written Fields have been settling out of court with many who have realised they were defrauded, they have also been posting fake data recovery reviews and review websites. Worse they have bullied and attacked their victims to the point of harrassment, lets hope the Judge re-instates the data-recovery-blog.com forum for the victims of Fields Data Recovery.,

I too was awarded an extra-ordinary damages settlement after Fields attempted to use their "in house legal team" to bring a vexatious claim against me. read "
have you been mulcted"

Fields solicitor stated in court to the Judge that Fields have :- " a good working relationship with Bridgend Trading Standards going back 5 years"    an extra-ordinary claim to make but actually factual, with TS in Bridgend recording over 570 complaints and intervening on 10 occassions !

However this is just the tip of the iceberg, businesses and international victims make up the majority of the revenues and they have to take out their own civil claims adding more costs to their already difficult situation.

Unfortunately I was also assaulted by a Fields Associates employee  / agent who served papers on me and I sustained back and neck injuries .

For those of you have been on the receiving end of the Fields Data Recovery scam it may come as no surprise that Fields still cannot recover drives that their expensive forensic reports or leading data recovery experts say are beyond recovery yet other labs recover.  

Most will never know how they were defrauded...

Of course Fields also process 10% of all injunctions in the UK so should be aware of the costs.

Questions are being asked - why does Fields Data Recovery / DataPhoenix / Rapid Data Recovery / Rapid Data attract so many complaints on an unprecedented scale  ?  All operated by Fields Associates Ltd of Bridgend .

The rapid rise of consumers claiming to be  victims of the Fields scam over the last 4 years is something that concerns all data recovery companies. (570 Complaints to Trading Standards in Bridgend despite having a full time complaints department.)

Fields Data Recovery shill reviews, Fields Associates charging for fake data recovery "forensic services" reports, incompatable parts which further damage drives, and mis representation of low pricing and 30 day money back guarantees is well known in DR

15 Data Recovery Labs  internationally gives the impression of a global corporation with expertise .... so what else is mis leading .... AH yes ---- they are not the cheapest data recovery company in the UK and they are selling fake data recovery reports on far too many occassions shows their "ISO9001 data recovery process" to be misleading - Guaranteed.!

Was it a coincidence that the Welsh Assembly backed £180,000  grant was followed by an an inter-company loan of £250,000 and £30,000+ of payments made to an associate company Fields South East Asia  / Thailand  when the High Court Injunction was applied for ?.. 

Fields Director is an Ethical Hacker  and its Chairman is the "leading computer forensics investigator" who represented many investigated in Operation Ore.

Fields claim to be the cheapest, to do the most recoveries and be the most successful, but in reality they have damaged reputable data recovery companies in thier sector domination through unrelenting growth and affected hundreds of consumers in the process.

How can they be, they charge for "forensic services" at considerable cost yet provide corrupt data... don't be fooled by 10 page reports showing how they photograph everything, those seen by genuine data recovery labs have been shown to be misleading, innacurate and in some cases proven to be wrong and the data was recoverable.
Always do a background check on any company you trust your data with, make sure you can find trusted sources for reviews and testimonials, carefully check testimonials and reviews, beware that Fields Group data recovery companies actively post fake / shill posts and testimonials and even fake data recovery review websites.
