European Central Notary, same name but different fake services

The first time we posted a warning on our blog about fraudsters using the name of European Central Notary was in February 2017

Dubious agents were cold calling consumers claiming to be working in the “English” department of the European Central Notary Office in Madrid.

They mainly approached consumers who had been defrauded by bogus holiday clubs and bogus resale companies, and offered the recovery of the lost money.

Although it has been quiet around the European Central Notary for some months, they seem to have made a “come back”.

That will be a come back for more of your money….

A lady called Belinda Walters is cold calling timeshare owners and offering to take their names off their timeshare contracts. She explains that as she works for European Central Notary they can actually do this for a lot less money than with anybody else or even through the resort.

The address mentioned for the European Central Notary office is: Avenida Real 4, 28032, Madrid, España

Telephone for this central notary office in the capital of Spain is a mobile: 0034 602469433

Email address: admin@noteriodemadrid.com

There is no website.

Belinda Walters, who seems to know perfectly well what the consumer has in membership with the resort, would charge £550 per title deed.

Please note that this is a SCAM!!!

European Central Notary is a fake set up and all they are after is your money.

If Belinda Walters or any so-called agent from the European Central Notary has contacted you with a similar offer, please let us know.

It is getting boring we know, but it is so important to continue publishing all the names so innocent consumers who are cold called have the possibility to do the research and find the right information.

LLE Gestores y Abogados seems to be one of the latest inventions of the Fake Lawyers group based in Tenerife.

With a website you recognize by the same basic “style” http://lle-gestoresyabogados.com the same text is copied and pasted but just with the names changed.

LLE Gestores y Abogados is supposedly a legal office set up by the lawyer Francisco Emoraja Rabasal.

Address for LLE Gestores y Abogados is supposedly at 4, Calle de San. Francisco, 4P, Santa Cruz, 38001-38002, España

Freephone: 0800 862 0194

Madrid: 0034 919 030 442

Santa Cruz: 0034 822 250 524

lle-gestoresyabogados@consultant.com

The address is fake and the email address is set up on a free email service @consultant.com

Cold calls with offers for claims, compensation pay outs on a no win no fee basis with on-going fees that need to be paid upfront until the consumer realizes they are the victim of a scam.

Please don’t fall for this!

Theo Kersten appelle les consommateurs en temps partagé français et leur offre un montant substantiel pour leur semaine.

Débordés par les sommes disponibles, de nombreux consommateurs ne se demandent pas comment cette société du groupe Kersten a obtenu ses données personnelles, et comment il est possible qu’ils paient autant pour une multipropriété-

Mais après l’accord initial et lorsque tout semble être en ordre, Theo Kersten explique que le consommateur doit payer une caution.

C’est tellement sécurisé la vente.

Une fois que le consommateur a payé, toutes sortes d’autres frais apparaissent.

Frais d’inscription, frais de notaire, taxes locales, frais d’administration. Il semble y avoir pas de fin.

La fin est lorsque le consommateur se rend compte que c’est une arnaque et cesse de payer.

Kersten Group utilise le numéro de téléphone +34 911984074 ou +44 2035147525

Email: cb.kersten.uk@gmail.com

Les paiements sont également versés à Hutchinson Holiday World, une société mentionnée à propos d’autres appels à froid.

Kersten Group, another bogus resale company targeting the French consumers

The latest cold calling dubious resale company that has been brought to our attention is called Kersten Group.

Kersten Group pretends to be buying timeshare on behalf of a large multinational called Leonardo Hotel (Pandox AB Group)

A Mr. Theo Kersten cold calls French Timeshare consumers and offers them a substantial amount for their week(s).

Overwhelmed with the amount of money on offer, many consumers don’t ask how this company Kersten Group got their private details, and how it is possible they would pay so much for a timeshare-

But after the initial agreement, and when everything seems to be in order, Theo Kersten explains the consumer needs to pay a deposit.

This is so secure the sale.

Once the consumer has paid, all kinds of other charges appear.

Registration fees, Notary fees, local taxes, administration fees. There seems to be no end.

The end is when the consumer realizes this is a scam and stops paying.

Kersten Group uses the telephone number +34 911984074 or +44 2035147525

Email: cb.kersten.uk@gmail.com

Payments are made as well to Hutchinson Holiday World a company mentioned in connection with other cold callers.

If Theo Kersten from Kersten Group has contacted you with the fake stories about a timeshare resale, please do let us know.

You can send us an email customercare@mindtimeshare.com or fill in the contact form

The Claims Assistance Bureau, cold callers with guaranteed claims.

A new strange cold calling company has been detected by the name of Claims Assistance Bureau.

Melanie Rhys is the agent calling and she is offering guaranteed claims for consumers who for example purchased from Regency Shores / Eze group.

Although Claims Assistance Bureau appears to be a company name registered with the UK Companies House, we have strong doubts that this real company is actually the one behind the cold caller.

The telephone call from Melanie Rhys is confirmed by email from the addresses ClaimsAssitanceBureauLP@outlook.com or  claimsassistancebureaulimited@gmail.com

An Outlook and Gmail account which is not normal for companies who usually have their own domain name.

In the email Mrs. Rhys assures once again that the money to be paid out to the consumer is already settled, and amazingly she doesn’t even need the paperwork of the consumer to do the claim.

In order to back up their offer they do another attempt to look even more “official” and state the following:

We are now giving you not only our company guarantee but that too of our contractual and fiscal arrangements with the Bank of Spain, the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce and the High Court of Madrid. This means that all business is backed and covered by these three entities and ourselves. ”

So, this cold calling company from the UK with a Gmail account and court claims without paperwork, states the bank of Spain, the high Court in Madrid and the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce backs them up!

The last one making no sense at all, and we have no clue why they mention Portugal in all this…

Obviously Mel Rhys and her company Claims Assistance Bureau are not working for free. So before the consumer can receive his guaranteed money into his account they kindly ask for an upfront fee of £875

Do we need to say more?

Please be careful with any cold callers for as much as they appear to be registered or display fancy websites or official stamps on their emails and paperwork.

When receiving a cold call, always ask them how they obtained your personal and private details? How do they do what you purchased years ago and from who, and how much you paid?

These details should never ever be in possession of anybody, company or person you don’t know!

If Claims Assistance Bureau has approached you already by telephone from 02920099129, please let us know.

You can reach us by email customercare@mindtimeshare.com or fill in the CONTACT form.

Toni Muldoon, the Spanish ‘Timeshare Conman’ dies aged 71

The self-confessed conman and scammer who was sentenced to seven and a half years in jail recently disclosed he was terminally ill with six months to a year left to live.

But he passed away earlier on the 5th of February just a month after he broke the news.

Although involved in numerous Timeshare scams, bogus resale companies and “recovery fraud” type companies, in the end Antoni Muldoon, was jailed for seven-and-a-half years in 2013 for his part in a internet fraud in which 17,000 people lost money by signing up to escort websites.

The real amount of victims from all the bogus set ups he used to defraud people, will never be known.

On his release from jail in 2016 Muldoon lived a lower profile life, setting up business in Lowestoft as well as writing several books.
