Daniel Marco Yariz, the fake barrister acting on behalf of the fake Amable Garcia lawyers.

Fake is the keyword with this fraudulent set up. Cold callers Amable Garcia have now come up with a new name in their web of companies and fake connections.

Procurador Daniel Marco Yariz

First the consumer receives a call from Amable Garcia as described in the blog we already posted about them and once they have the consumer hooked up in the story of claims against resorts etc., they start to ask for money.

But the company charging / receiving the legal fees is Amable Garcia, but it is the fake Barrister or Procurador in Spanish, Mr Daniel Marco Yariz.

This fake barrister has also a website set up www.danielmarcoyariz.com with a lot of copied texts from other companies and contact details such as an address: Avenida Constitución No. 7, Edificio Velada, Oficina 324C, 38003, Santa Cruz De Tenerife and an email procuradoresyariz@europe.com

No Telephone number, no registration details, no nothing!

A website which was registered early June 2017 so brand new.

We cannot insist more that cold calling companies are never to be trusted, but it is even more suspicious when they say they are legal professionals, talk about claims that take place in no time and without any official paperwork and payments for fees into the names of individuals.

For as much as one wish to recover the lost money on frauds and cheats this is not the solution and this is real!

If you have been approached by Amable Garcia or directly by this fake barrister Marco Daniel Yariz, do let us know and DO NOT PAY THEM A PENNY!

You can contact us through the contact form , or simply place a comment on this blog.

Edwards Consultants, more cold calling “claims advisors” with meetings in the UK

The list of cold calling companies offering claims has increased this week with the name of Edwards Consultants.

But as seems to happen very often lately, this is not really a new company,  but more a slight name change of others who have been active so far.

Links to companies such as FHA Marketing and Shakespeare Marketing were found and the pitch on the phone is identical.

Once the consumer shows their interest in attending the meeting, they receive a follow up email where they are explained that the actual people meeting them will be from a company called Standon Mortimer.

At the meeting issues such as perpetuity and mis selling will be discussed, and they make it sound as if the claim is already a done and dusted case even before having a looking at the actual paperwork of the consumer and their experience when buying into the timeshare.

Contact details for Edwards Consultants are:

Emails: refunds@edwardsconsultants.net, admin@edwardsconsultants.net and info@edwardsconsultants.net

Telephone numbers: 0121 667 2476 or 0121 667 9401

Website www.edwardsconsultants.net

The website does not supply and company registration details and explains their services as “Appointment Setting, Lead Generation, Customer Services, Online Marketing, Data Sourcing and Sales training”

Like we have seen with all the other cold calling companies before, at the meeting all of the sudden the No win No fee claim turns out to be an expensive relinquishment service which you need to take if you want to claim…

Nobody really is signing up at these meetings for only the claim without paying any money…

As with all cold callers, be careful when attending these meetings, allow yourself a decent time to think things over at home and with copies of the agreement you would be signing, and don’t pay any money on the day and don’t leave the original paperwork with them!

Have you been approached by Edwards Consultants already? Please let us have your feedback.

Did you receive an email from Timeshare Legals?

Not a cold caller but still a company who approaches consumers without them asking for the information. Timeshare Legals has done an e-shot to Club la Costa members offering their services.

In the email they present themselves and state:”…We are a UK registered company and use UK Law Panels who specialise in this field.

We are proud to confirm that we have successfully disposed of many Timeshare or Holiday Club Memberships. This has saved our clients thousands of pounds in annual service charges, and the continued burden of perpetuity clauses….”

They continue:”… The process is handled from our legal offices in Manchester. The membership is firstly terminated, and once that process is complete (after approximately three or four weeks) we can start on the reclaim of funds.  This final stage can take up to six months via the banks and the ombudsman under British law.”

All sounds very interesting if it wasn’t for the fact that this company is not really registered as such at the Companies House. As mentioned on their website the company Timeshare Legals is actually a brand name of RJP Asset Management Limited. This company was registered in March this year so very recent, the same as the web registration.

Company activity / nature of business: Agents involved in the sale of a variety of goods

Not really something you would expect from a “legal” company.

There is no mention at all on the website of any genuine legal company being linked to these people and we suspect there isn’t any.

The website www.timesharelegals.co.uk includes “testimonials” from happy customers which seems to be hard to believe taking in mind they have only been around for 3 months.

Further research has shown that the company Timeshare Legals has direct connections with other so called Claims companies who were actively cold calling in the past for supposed claims that never happened either.

Contact number for Timeshare Legals is 01926 3550803 and email info@timesharelegals.co.uk

If you received an email from the company Timeshare Legals offering their services for claims and disposals, we would like to hear from you.

Spanish police takes action against responsible behind Half Moon Holding, Excalibur, Blue Chip and Rosedale set up.

A recent police raid of the offices from the companies Half Moon Holdings, Excalibur Sales & marketing, Blue Chip and Rosedale Marketing or Rosedale Group has resulted in 15 arrests.

The offices mainly based in Torre del Mar on the Spanish Costa del Sol, were searched by a team from the police.

Vehicles, computers and credit card machines were seized.

Howard Capelli and other members of family and staff (mainly British nationals), in these offices were arrested.

The police also points out that the Benalmadena based lawyer Mr. Christian Lopez is allegedly involved in this set up.

It certainly has taken some years for the police to intervene these companies as we have records on their cold calls ever since 2009 when Blue Chip initiated their activities.

At first they contacted Timeshare consumers with the story of a guaranteed sale, for which they required an upfront payment. After the sale supposedly “fell through” they asked for more money to change the timeshare owner into a membership that would sell quicker, something that never happened.

The latest one being active is Rosedale Marketing or Rosedale Group who over the past month was “re-visiting” the victims from the other companies with stories of a police raid and money recovered. Asking once again for more money from the victims to get their money refunded into their account.

If you have been victim of one of the above-mentioned companies please let us know. In this way we can keep you updated on any further developments in this matter.

Please email us at customercare@mindtimeshare.com or place a comment on this blog so we can get back in contact with you.

Have you heard from Rexton Law Associates from London?

Martin Rexton from Rexton Law Associates is busy cold calling.

Martin has good news, he works on behalf of the “trustees” and there was a recent court case, which ruled in favour of the consumer he has on the phone.

A substantial amount of money has been awarded and he is liaising to get the money transferred into the consumers’ account.

Obviously Rexton Law Associates and their lawyers don’t work for free and costs need to be covered.

If the consumer can be so nice to send them the fees and the substantial amount will be transferred into their account upon receipt.

Sounds dubious? Yes it does indeed!

The address for Rexton Law is Floor 5. 40, Grace Church Street in London

The Telephone number used is 0203 1370 135

Rexton Law does everything over the phone, no emails, and no documents to back up their statements, no invoice for the lawyers.

Just bank account details given verbally over the phone in the names of their supposed accountants.

Those asking for proof the story is right are being told that in the next days the new son the court case will appear in a national newspaper.

No surprise this news article is never found…

If you received a cold call as well from Martin Rexton or any other “employee” of Rexton Law Associates, telephone 02031370135, please do let us know.

Timesure Solutions, cold calls and meetings in Redditch

 

Redditch must be a busy town. Lately several cold callers, surprisingly all with the same pitch are inviting timeshare consumers to a meeting in Redditch.

The meeting is to discuss a claim against their resort and a substantial compensation pay out.

This time we have Timesure Solutions, who just recently started with their calls, but yet again a meeting in Redditch.

Timesure Solutions runs a website www.timesure.co.uk which was registered just over a year ago.

On the website they state: “TimeSure is a UK consultancy business providing specialist solutions to dissatisfied timeshare owners. Our core business is divided into two sections;

No-win no-fee claim service and Contract terminations service.

And about their legal services:” We have already done the hard work for you and have shortlisted some of the best lawyers in the field for an array of claims against the timeshare resorts and developers. Our assessors and agents are best placed to discuss this legal option with you and to either dismiss or recommend this course of action…”

Clearly the consumer is yet again not going to be met by any lawyer or legal professional but as they state, their assessors and agents….how do they pretend somebody with no legal qualifications can assess if you have a court case or not?

And of course with the “no win no claim” case they will throw in the additional service to relinquish the timeshare, which won’t be for free…

Contact details for TimeSure are telephone 0333 577 2334 and email info@timesure.co.uk

Address as mentioned on the website is Suite 7, The Business Centre, Redditch B97 6HA

Research has shown that this company Timesure Solutions is actually linked to other companies we also mentioned on this blog; Ownership Release Services and RSB Legal.

Two companies who were offering the exact same services and about which we received numerous inquiries and complaints.

Just be careful with any cold call.

If you have been contacted by Timesure Solutions we would like to have your feedback.

Please contact us by email at customercare@mindtimeshare.com or simply place a comment on the blog and we will get back to you.

Did you win a prize on the streets of Adeje and ended up buying into Club Vesta?

More and more inquiries are coming in from concerned consumers who were stopped in the streets of Adeje and ended up buying into a holiday club called Club Vesta. (www.clubvesta.co)

We already mentioned this Club Vesta in a recent article about a company called Cinnamon Marketing (http://wp.me/p1kmoi-213).

But it appears now that it isn’t only Cinnamon marketing selling this Club Vesta membership and there is at least one more seller by the name of JM Brussel.

It all happened as a consumer tells us in their email: “Approached on street near the marina in Costa Adeje with scratch cards for Costa Adeje Tourism under the remit of the Mayor’s Office. Shown a lanyard with the mayor’s stamp on it by way of proof of approval. Advised could save over 25% off Tenerife holidays using a system similar to Trivago but run locally saving taxes. 20% in UK down to 3%.

We ‘won’ a holiday on one of the cards and had to present to a nearby office and the process would take around 30 – 45 minutes…”

Once at the offices of JM Brussel, the meeting lasted certainly far longer than the 30 to 45 minutes they were told. In the meeting the consumers are given a number of statements about the product, which are very questionable!

It all seems to turn around a booking system they call GDS, which would give direct access to booking all kinds of travel, without having to go through the travel agent or online vendor. They quote up to a 42% discount on the prices through this GDS system.

In order to get access to this fabulous system, the seller JM Brussel is looking for around £4,950 with £1,000 upfront deposit on the day and the balance 10 days later.

The consumer is given as well 3 more free weeks and a week in a 5 star accommodation in Marbella including 2 free flights.

The duration of this membership with Club Vesta is sold as “ A lifetime membership” agreed on a 12 month rolling contract.

The mention of the “rolling” contract is clearly a way to overcome the European Law, which stipulates that any purchase of a long-term holiday product with duration of 12 months or more CANNOT have a payment on the day and the seller has to allow the buyer a 14-day cooling off period without any money exchanged.

Research has shown that the people involved with the company JM Brussel were also linked to another company in the past called Realistix Solutions. (https://mindtimeshare.me/?s=realistix)

The membership that gives you access to this website where only the members can book at tremendously reduced prices, the access to travel worldwide and “cutting out” the middleman, it all seems very very similar to what Realistix was selling not so long ago…

When you are on holidays we all know that you might let your guard down. Being stopped by these nice people in the streets who seem to be working for the Town Hall and give you a Price which could be a free holiday or even an iPad…it all sounds so attractive!

But please when attending meetings like this, for as much as the offer appeals to you, for as much as the product would work for you, allow yourself a decent cooling off and don’t pay anything on the day!

There are no such offers that can only be taken there and then and by paying thousand(s) of pounds straight away.

If a company tells you otherwise, you should be looking for the door and go.

If you have been to a meeting of Club Vesta from Cinnamon marketing or JM Brussel, please let us know.
