Vorsicht mit Offenen Ansprüchen und Gesperrten Firmenguthaben, die auf Gerichten zur Auszahlung warten!

achtungbetrug

Dieses Mal berichten wir nicht über eine einzelne “Firma”, die Ferienwohnrechts- / Timeshare-Besitzer kontaktiert, sondern über eine bestimmte Art und Weise, wie solche Firmen an Konsumenten herantreten, und zwar Konsumenten die unglücklicherweise schon zuvor betrogen wurden und nun erneut attackiert werden!

In der letzten Zeit haben eine Anzahl von neuen zweifelhaften Unternehmen ihre Tätigkeit aufgenommen und kontaktieren Konsumenten, die bereits vorher Geschäfte mit anderen betrügerischen Firmen hatten und dabei Geld verloren haben. Es wird ihnen mitgeteilt, dass ein GERICHTSFALL stattgefunden habe in Bezug auf die jeweilige Firma, mit der der Konsument bereits Geld verloren hatte, und dass FIRMENGUTHABEN GESPERRT worden seien, die nun zur Rückzahlung an betroffene Konsumenten bereit ständen. Deren Unternehmen sei damit beauftragt worden mit den Konsumenten in Verbindung zu treten, erklärt man den Konsumenten am Telefon.

Wow!   Nun, das sagen die meisten, wenn sie das hören. Wer möchte nicht verlorene Gelder zurückbekommen. Zu gut um wahr zu sein, sagen einige andere!

Meist wird zu Beginn versichert, dass KEINE VORAUSGEBÜHREN zu zahlen seien, es wird aber dennoch erwähnt, dass der Konsument entweder einen Prozentzsatz von der auszuzahlenden Summe oder eine feste Summe zahlen muss, sobald das Geld zur Rückzahlung zur Verfügung steht, angeblich als Gerichtskosten, Übersetzungskosten, Notargebühren oder zur Registrierung einer NIE-Nummer (für weitere Information über die NIE-Nummer, klicken Sie bitte http://bit.ly/VCtYfc) um die Gelder freizugeben oder unter Angabe andere erfundener Gründe.

Oftmals werden den Konsumenten dann Dokumente zugesandt, die diese glauben machen sollen, dass das Geld für die Rückzahlung bereits auf einem TREUHANDKONTO deponiert sei;   diese Dokumente sind jedoch getürkt, z.B. gefälschte Kontoauszüge von tatsächlich existierenden Banken!

Hat der Konsument erst einmal die Zahlung geleistet, geschieht nichts mehr und der Konsument findet dann schliesslich heraus, dass er ein weiteres Mal betrogen wurde, den es gibt keine solchen Gerichtsfall, keine Firmenguthaben wurden eingefroren und keine Gelder zur Seite gelegt, um betrogene Konsumenten damit zu entschädigen.

Es handelt sich hier um BETRUG, und am besten glauben Sie kein Wort, wenn Sie unaufgefordert mit solch einer oder einer ähnlichen Geschichte angerufen werden!

Wenn Sie unaufgefordert angerufen werden von einer Firma, die zum Zeitpunkt des Anrufs bereits über Ihre persönlichen Daten verfügt, ist das schon zweifelhaft genug, wenn aber diese Firma behauptet, für Sie verlorene Gelder zurück erlangen zu können, spätestens dann sollten Ihre Alarmglocken klingeln.

Sehr wahrscheinlich werden Sie gerade von denselben Leuten kontaktiert, die Sie schon einmal betrogen haben!

Es ist also nochmal klar zu sagen, dass es keine GERICHTSFÄLLE gibt, keine EINFRIERUNG VON FIRMENGELDERN, und auch keine Rückzahlung von OFFENEN ANSPRÜCHEN bei Spanischen Gerichten. Falls Sie von irgendeiner Firma mit einer solchen Geschichte unaufgefordert kontaktiert wurden, lassen Sie es uns bitte wissen.

Sie können uns per E-Mail customercare@mindtimeshare.com kontaktieren, oder auch gerne einen Beitrag auf unserem Blog hinterlassen! Vielleicht können ja andere Konsumenten von Ihren Erfahrungen lernen!

Denken Sie immer daran, falls Sie bereits in Kontakt mit irgendeiner zweifelhaften Firma standen und haben vielleicht sogar Geld dabei verloren, kontaktieren Sie uns und erzählen Sie was passiert ist; möglicherweise können wir Ihnen weiterhelfen!

Attention with Pending Claims and Frozen Assets waiting at Courts to be paid out!

FRAUDSIGN

This is one of the times that we do not report about a particular “company” that contacts timeshare consumers, but about a way of approaching consumers, ones who already were so unlucky to have been duped before and are being attacked again!

Recently have been active a number of dubious companies cold calling consumers who had already dealings before with other fraudulent companies and lost money with them. They explain them that a COURT CASE had taken place in regard to the company they were dealing with before, and that ASSETS HAVE BEEN FROZEN to be paid out to affected consumers. Their company has been asked to deal with all the victims, is what they explain.

Wow!   That is what mostly the consumers say when they hear this. Who would not like to recuperate lost monies! Too good to be true, say some wiser ones!

Many times initially is confirmed that there will be NO UPFRONT FEE to be paid, but they also mention that once the refund amount is available, the consumer is due to pay either a percentage of the refund amount or a fixed amount as court fees, translation costs, notary fees and costs for a registration (NIE) number (for more information about the NIE number click http://bit.ly/VCtYfc) to be able to release funds or other invented reasons.

Often consumers are even provided with certain documentation, to make them believe that the money is really deposited on an ESCROW ACCOUNT, but these documents are faked, e.g. falsified bank statements from real existing banks!

Once the money has been paid by the consumer, nothing else happens and the consumer finally finds out that he has been duped again, because there are no court cases, no monies have been laid aside, no assets frozen to be paid out to defrauded consumers.

This is all a big FAKE and you better do not believe a word, if you are cold called by someone telling you this or a similar story!

If you are cold called by a company that disposes already of your personal details at the time of calling you, it is already more than doubtful, but if they pretend to be able to obtain such a claim for you in regard to earlier dealings you had, the latest your alarm bells should be ringing.

Most probably these people that contact you now are the SAME ONES that defrauded you before!

Once again we confirm that there are NO COURT CASES and NO FROZEN ASSETS or monies waiting to be paid out to consumers, so if you have been cold called by any company with such a story, please let us know.

You can contact us by e-mail customercare@mindtimeshare.com or leave your comment here on the blog! Perhaps other consumers can learn from your experience!

Please remember, if you had already dealings with companies where you lost money, let us know and tell us what happened; we might be able to help you further!

Atlantic Program Compagny, société de revente basée à Marrakech.

ATLANTIC

Cette alerte aux consommateurs sort pour les entreprises de revente Atlantic Progam Compagny, basée à Marrakech et avec un pitch (argument commercial) très semblable lorsque elles contactent les clients avec des appels à froid.

Atlantic Progam Compagny contacte principalement les consommateurs de France et Belgique et leur offre de racheter leurs multipropriétés. Afin de vendre la multipropriété le propriétaire doit se rendre à Marrakech et assister à une réunion avec un prétendu acheteur.

Ils expliquent au consommateur qu’il existe déjà un prix de vente convenu et ce prix est étonnamment élevé avec le seul but de convaincre le consommateur de la bonne affaire qu’il est offert.

Les coordonnées de Atlantic Progam Compagny sont ; numéro de téléphone + 212 (0) 6 598 781 22; Fax  + 212 (0) 5 244 206 15;

Adresse email: contact@atlanticprogramcompagny.com

Site web http://www.atlanticprogramcompagny.com/ enregistré en Août 2014, donc très récent!

Afin de se rendre à Marrakech, un paiement de 389 € pour frais de dossiers ou de confirmation est demandé, payable par virement bancaire à une banque à Marrakech.

Veuillez noter que les entreprises qui vous appellent à froid, ils ont évidemment obtenu vos coordonnées et les détails d’adhésion par le biais d’une source illégale et s’elles vous offrent une garantie de revente demandant de se rendre à un autre pays et payer des frais initiaux … elles ne sont pas dignes de confiance!

Avez-vous été contacté par Atlantic Progam Compagny par le numéro 00212659878122? S’il vous plaît, faites-nous savoir.

Global Liquidation Services has it all! Cold call, guaranteed resale and upfront fee…

GLS

Sometimes we post warnings about companies who only do cold calling. But Global Liquidation Services does not belong to that group as they actually go the whole way.

GLS or Global Liquidation Services cold calls timeshare owners and use the “guaranteed” sale pitch. A guaranteed sale for an attractive price so who would say no to such offer?

After the initial cold call to see if the Timeshare Owner wants to sell, they send of a confirmation email with the details of the proposed sale.

In this email it is explained that the purchaser is leaving a 35% deposit paid in order to get the sale going but Global Liquidation Services also expects the seller to pay a fee which they call a “liability insurance fee”.

This liability Insurance is €2000, but rest assured as soon as the sale is completed the (ex) timeshare owner will receive the money from the sale plus the €2000 he paid up-front.

Does this sound correct? Well we are afraid it is not correct as the Timeshare Directive clearly forbids any upfront payments when it concerns a timeshare resale.

Contact details for Global Liquidation Services are Avenida Juventudes, Dr Fedriani , 41009 Seville, Spain

Telephone 0034 951255737 and email: globalliquidationservices@gmx.com

Apart from a faulty address, the email also indicates there is no website which seems odd for a company selling a product that needs to be shown to the customers.

As mentioned, Global Liquidation Services reunites all the signs for us to say that we do NOT recommend this company!

If you have been contacted by GLS about a guaranteed resale of your timeshare, then please do let us know.

Email us at customercare@mindtimeshare.com or place a comment on the blog and we will get back to you.

SPS Properties & Consultants, the cold caller for Claims and Relinquishments

SPS

SPS Properties & Consultants from Nottingham seem to be offering all kind of help for Timeshare consumers.

They cold call the timeshare owner, although they assure the consumer that they received the contact information from the “European Timeshare Complaints Commission”… whoever they are.

Depending on the situation of the timeshare owner, he is offered a Home Consultation with one of the agents of SPS Properties & Consultants. Club Class Members for example are offered a refund claim service and others are offered a service to Relinquish / Dispose of their Timeshare.

The agent from SPS Properties assures that they will only ever offer a service if they are 100% confident in achieving the outcome that the consumer is looking for. The meeting is completely free of charge, although should SPS Properties be able to offer the consumer a service then an upfront payment will become due to retain our services.

Details from SPS Properties & Consultants are the website http://www.spspropertiesltd.co.uk/ which was registered in February 2014 and their address: Benneworth Close, Hucknall, Nottingham, NG15 6EL

Telephone: 0115 824 0010 and Email: info@spspropertiesltd.co.uk

Please always be careful with cold callers, especially when they seem to know a lot about you and please think twice before inviting people over to your home or submitting paperwork to companies / people with personal and private information.

If you have been speaking to SPS Properties & Consultants from Nottingham 01158240010 then we would like to know.

You can email us at customercare@mindtimeshare.com or simply place a comment on the blog.

Did you also receive a strange call from Regent Finance Ltd?

fake

A cold caller by the name of Regent Finance is approaching Timeshare owners with a very strange story.

The agent by the name of Alan Smith tells the timeshare owner that money he paid for the purchase is being held in an account in the Hua Xia Bank in Beijing! Not really a branch to go and pop around to verify…

This money supposedly has been claimed back from the timeshare company and ordered by the “government” to be paid back to the victims.

Regent Finance is there to sort all this out and mediate between the timeshare owner and the bank to get the transfer sorted. In order to get the money the timeshare owner does need to pay £1610 as a matter of interest payment or taxes.

This amount can easily be paid through Western Union, and in case the timeshare owner is not very convinced or wants to verify this, he is being given a number from “Western Union” 0203 290 6802 where they will confirm it is true..

Another phone number used by Alan Smith of Regent Finance is 0203 695 4363

The above Modus Operandi sounds very similar to the ones of other dubious companies mentioned on this blog in the past.

We are afraid that the “real” Regent Finance Ltd has no clue that their company name is being used by these dubious callers.

There is no doubt that the cold caller supposedly from Regent Finance is telling lies and there is no money waiting in a bank in China to be paid out to timeshare victims in the UK.

If you received a call from Regent Finance or any other company with a similar dubious story, then please do let us know.

Did the Claims Department from Jesus Gomez Notario offer to validate your claim?

FRAUDSIGN

Spanish Notaries continue to be very actively contacting timeshare consumers and it seems to us that the simple fact that they are calling themselves “notaries” creates a lot of trust with consumers that are desperately trying to recuperate some of the money that they have lost before.

Jesus Gomez Notario is the new notary who this time pretends to be able to recuperate monies lost before, and after the first contact he sends an e-mail to the consumer stating that the Claims Department has now processed and validated the consumer’s claim, and confirms an exact amount that supposedly is to be refunded.

Apart from that amount, Jesus Gomez Notario is not giving many details in their correspondence. There is no address, no contact details, nothing that would identify them as a genuine notary.

BUT, there is made mention of another amount; the consumer needs to pay approximately £1,800 upfront to release the funds, AND there is even a time limit for this “fiscal release” as they call it.

Jesus Gomez is using the e-mail jesus.gomez@europe.com and the contact telephone number is 0034917715160. We are sure everybody agrees that this does not appear to be the email of a notary.

We have over the past weeks reported so many times about the different notaries that appear new, nearly on a weekly basis, so we can only advise everybody to watch out and be careful when you are contacted by someone who calls you and pretends to be a notary who has money for you.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL IF YOU ARE CONTACTED BY ANY NOTARY!

DO NOT MAKE ANY PAYMENTS UPFRONT!

Once again we confirm that there are no court cases where monies have been laid aside to be paid back to affected consumers, so if you are cold called by Jesus Gomez or any such “notary”, under telephone number 0034 917715160 or any other, pick up your pen and write their phone number and their details down and get in contact with us by e-mail customercare@mindtimeshare.com

We will be happy to hearing from you which one of the notaries has contacted you, and what is your story. Your information will always be highly appreciated and might help to avoid that others fall for this!

Please remember also, if you have any “pending” case where you lost money, tell us about it; we might be able to help you further!
