Not a cold caller this time, but equally worrying as Legal & Accounting Services has done a large mailing to Timeshare consumers claiming fees due and threatening with legal action.
The letter states that Legal & Accounting Services has recently taken over the management and administration of the consumers Holiday Club.
They don’t really specify the club name and this appears to be strange as the least one can expect is that a company claiming money has all the facts in detail.
They do have the agreement date and claim that fees are outstanding ever since.
The consumer is notified he has 30 days to pay and if not Legal & Accounting Services will have no other alternative than to take legal action.
The last paragraph is one not to be missed! They actually offer that in case you don’t want to have the membership any longer, you can pay £175 in 10 days after receiving the letter and you will be taken off the list.
So who is this company Legal & Accounting Services and where are they coming from?
On the letter there isn’t much information. The letter is signed by a lawyer Mr.Luis Viciana Ramos who seems to be real although the address and phone number on the letter do not coincide.
Well the address is a post box: Apartado de Correos 24, 29700 Velez Malaga, Spain
Telephone +34 951 402 874
The letter includes a bank account number for the payments of either the outstanding fees or the cancellation fee.
So we have a company who seems to have a lot of information from the consumers but lacks the most important which is the Club Name, or even the phone number of the client.
There are no further company details on the letter, no company Registration and the address is a post box which is not very handy when trying to claim something back from them. Obviously when paying by bank transfer the payment would not be protected anyway.
On top of this we have received numerous inquiries from consumers who never bought a club membership at all, or have an agreement that clearly mentions that failure of payment results in loss of the membership but nothing else!
If you have received a letter from legal & Accounting Services with phone number 951402874 in Velez Malaga, then please let us know.
