What really happens at the meeting with Claim Your Claim in Tenerife….

Claim Your Claim is a company, who has been present on our cold caller list for ages.

Each month we receive numerous enquiries from consumers about the cold call received, the offer to travel to Tenerife and the guarantee to get money back from a claim.

More than once people actually tell us they agreed to travel, as after all, what can happen?

The following story is the descriptions we received from a consumer who attended the meeting, and fell into the trap of Claim your Claim and is regretting it dearly…

Judge for yourself if a “free week” holiday is worth this stress…. and money!

The initial call:

When I responded to the initial call I was responding to the fact that we once bought a timeshare type package, this didn’t work out, we paid our money over 10 years ago now; we put the loss down to a bad decision and moved on. The company, Claim Your Claim explained to me that they would be able to recoup my money back based on a no win no fee basis. The first question asked was how they responded with:

“Come to Tenerife as you have to be in the country to register your claim. We will put you up in a hotel with no expense, all you will have to pay is your airfare.”

I then asked: “Is it likely that our claim will be successful?” We were told they have never lost a claim yet. I then asked what would we owe you and they said “20%”. We agreed to do this and they booked our flights.

The meeting:

In Tenerife we met a man called “Andy”, no surname and a woman called ‘Debbie’ (supposedly a Lawyer) …no surname. Andy told us that they could claim our money back but since there is nothing in it for them, all they asked is that we would give them a go and book more holidays with them in the future. He said you would not be buying into anything, just promise to book a holiday with us to the tune of at least £150 as a deposit initially.

Andy then proceeded to show us a website that had tons of holidays on there and prices that we severely reduced. Of course, this was designed to entice us and make us believe that this company was legit. He then proceeded to use pressure sales techniques as well as confuse us in order for us to sign paper work. Sadly, we signed the paper work due to the information they gave us.

We were told that we do not need to pay anything apart for a £4,000 fee on the day but that we would get this back. The only reason that we need to pay it is to register our claim due to the tax advantage in the UK. When we questioned page one of the document that says 4 weeks accommodation, we were told that that does not relate to you, this is just for the week you have had in Tenerife, and you will get this back.

As we didn’t have our credit card on us, they said no problem as they retained the information from the flight booking they made on our behalf. The £4,000 was charged to our credit card moments later.

Then they explained that in order for our claim to be worthwhile, they would use £8,000 on our behalf. In order to get this £8,000 they would put 8,000 into our account, I will then need to use that £8,000 to pay them back, therefore I am not arranging a loan, money is being moved in order to avoid tax and because the claim was claimed in Tenerife.

I asked him if this was legal and of course, he said yes.

We were told a person from the finance company would contact us about the £8,000. When this gentleman from the finance called, he said I understand you have required a household loan for £8,000. He also explained the loan would be under the agreed terms and conditions and you would need to pay an early repayment fee if you want to pay the loan off early, in addition, the loan was subject to interest charges. None of this was explained to us we were told £8,000 would go in and £8,000 would go out. NOBODY MENTIONED A LOAN!

What did we sign in the end?

Looking at the paperwork, there is no mention at all of a company called Claim your Claim. The supposed accommodation agreements signed are in the name of two different companies; 7 Island Experience and Alternative Travel.

The agreements are for supposed “rental weeks” including the “FREE” week we were using at the moment of the meeting. Against each week they put a value adding up a total of £4,000 for each agreement. (So in the end we paid the week of the invitation, nothing was FREE.)

These 4 rental weeks from the Alternative Travel agreement are pre-booked through a booking website called Altura.

The value though of these 4 weeks are certainly not what they state on the paperwork and the same weeks can be booked on the internet for 3 to 4 times cheaper.

The agreement of 7 Island Experience is supposedly for a “holiday membership” with no explanation of what this includes or how to use this and 5 worldwide accommodation weeks, and 2 return flights at the value of 250 Pounds.

The weeks are to be booked through 7 Island Experiences and with no apparent expiry date.

Other documents signed are for the refreshments taken at the meeting, a certificate for “Sovereign credits” with no further explanation on how to use these and a document stating we were picked up from the airport.

There is NOTHING about a claim, no mention of any Claims company or Legal company that will handle such claim…

We feel cheated and are trying to get a refund through the credit card company for the £4,000 they took from the card.

Avez-vous reçu un appel avec une offre de revente de Castillo Properties à Elche?

Une nouvelle société de vente à froid a commencé à contacter les consommateurs français en temps partagé.

Castillo Properties, supposément basé à Elche (Alicante) en Espagne, lance un appel avec des offres très attractives.

L’agent de Castillo Properties informe les propriétaires de multipropriété qu’ils achètent des semaines de multipropriété pour le compte de la société Port Aventura World.

Ils sont très intéressés par la semaine de multipropriété et sont prêts à payer plus de 20. 000 euros par semaine.

Une fois que le client en multipropriété a manifesté son intérêt pour Castillo Properties, il a reçu un courrier électronique d’introduction de la part de castilloinmobiliaria-fr@outlook.com.

Dans cet e-mail, le consommateur en temps partagé est informé de certains frais et indique que l’acheteur et le vendeur doivent déposer une somme d’argent avant que la revente puisse être traitée.

Ils joignent même un prétendu contrat de vente signé par Castillo Properties et Port Aventura World sans aucun nom! Juste un tampon et un logo.

S’il vous plaît noter qu’il s’agit d’une arnaque!

Il n’existe pas d’entreprise telle que Castillo Properties qui achète pour le compte de Port Aventura World.

Même si les noms des entreprises sont réels, nous pouvons vous assurer que les personnes qui appellent ne travaillent PAS du tout pour ces entreprises.

Le numéro de téléphone utilisé est le +34 (0) 910 762 761.

Ils n’ont pas de site Web et pour l’e-mail, ils n’ont même pas de nom de domaine et créent simplement un compte gratuit sur @ outlook.com.

Ce sont tous des signes que cet appel ne peut pas être approuvé.

Si un agent faisant semblant de travailler pour Castillo Properties vous a contacté pour lui raconter l’histoire de la revente du Port Aventura World, veuillez nous en informer.

NE JAMAIS PAYER DE L’ARGENT À UNE ENTREPRISE D’APPEL FROID!

Have you received a call with a resale offer from Castillo Properties in Elche?

A new cold calling Resale Company has started to target French Timeshare consumers.

Castillo Properties, supposedly based in Elche (Alicante) Spain, is calling with very attractive offers.

The agent from Castillo Properties is telling Timeshare owners that they are buying Timeshare weeks on behalf of the company Port Aventura World.

They are very interested in the timeshare week and are willing to pay over 20.000 euros per week.

Once the Timeshare consumer has shown their interest to Castillo Properties, they receive an introductory email from castilloinmobiliaria-fr@outlook.com

In this email the timeshare consumer is explained about certain charges and that both the buyer and seller need to deposit an amount of money before the resale can be processed.

They even attach a supposed sales agreement signed by both Castillo Properties and Port Aventura World without any name! Just a stamp and logo.

Please note that this is a SCAM!

There is no such company as Castillo Properties buying on behalf of Port Aventura World.

Even if the names of the companies are real, we can assure you that the people calling are NOT working for these companies at all.

Telephone numbers used is +34 (0) 910 762 761

They don’t have a website and for the email they have not even a domain name and simply set up a free account under @outlook.com

These are all signs this call cannot be trusted.

If an agent pretending to be working for Castillo Properties has contacted you with the story of resale for Port Aventura World, please let us know.

NEVER PAY MONEY TO A COLD CALLING COMPANY!

Timeshare Cold Callers December 2018

Dear All,

Happy New Year and the best wishes to all our readers!

A new cold caller list has been elaborated. In the month of December 2018 we counted a total of 53 cold calling companiesof which 16 companies are new nameson this list.

For a complete list of all cold callers please click on the following link:

Timeshare Cold Callers December 2018

You will see that many names on the list in reality all belong to the same set up which is the fake lawyers in Tenerife.

We published an article at the end of the month with all the names we had so far for these fake lawyers and you can see this article on the following link: https://wp.me/p1kmoi-3k9

Without doubt they will be coming up with more fake names and fake websites, so please be alert!

The new names on December’s cold caller list are:

  • Carlos Imgran Procuraduria
  • Carlos Ingramo Procuradores
  • Castillo Properties
  • Carlos Imgran Procuraduria
  • Claims Assessors (fake)
  • CNBT AALOUCH LAW
  • Litigacion España SL
  • Miguel Alinas Procuradores
  • Procuradores Alinas
  • Procuradores Gonzalez – Alfonso Emilio Gonzalez Procuradores
  • Procuradores Salinas – Miguel Salinas Procurador
  • Procuradores Raya – Miguel Earas Raya Procuradores
  • Procuradores Tabreul – Abel Deraza Tabreul
  • Procuraduria Carlos Gregorio Ingramo
  • Resolve Consultancy
  • Timeshare Watchdog Group

Now all the festivities are over and we are all getting back to normal, it might be time to start thinking of what you are going to do with your timeshare in 2019.

As many consumers are continuously cold called by supposed claims companies, there is always the doubt of “what if” we can claim and get all our money back?

Please note that genuine legal companies do NOT cold call and neither do they use third party companies to do this on their behalf!

If you are looking for an exit of the membership and wonder if you could possibly claim anything back, have a look at the article we posted about the claims:

Are you a timeshare owner? Then, it is time to claim.

Here we explain who could qualify for a claim, and if you find yourself in this position after reading the article, just let us know and we point you in the right direction!

Have a great 2019!

Procuradores Tabreul from Tenerife, fake, fraudulent, what more?

Added to the warning list is Procuradores Tabreul.

Another one belonging to the group of fake lawyers in Tenerife, and yet again a so-called Procurador which cannot be found anywhere.

Mr. Abel Deraza Tabreul is obviously not a procurator and this leaves him as the one responsible of the bank account that is given to the consumers for a payment of fake fees.

Website set up for Procuradores Tabreul is www.procuradores.tabreul.com

Fake address: Calle Delatar 6, Pulgadas, Edificio Estresha, 403, 38001, Santa Cruz

And email: procuradores-tabreul@europe.com

No telephone

Please do not fall for this fake and fraudulent set up.

There are no court claims, and there is no money awarded.

If Abel Deraza Tabreul or Procuradores Tabreul have already send you their information, please do NOT pay as you won’t see your money back…

Beware of Fake Procurators in Tenerife by the name of Procuradores Raya

A new day a new name, more fake companies popping up belonging to the fake lawyers group in Tenerife.

Procuradores Raya or the Procurators office from a Mr. Miguel Earas Raya has been added to the list of FAKE and FRAUDULENT companies.

There is no Miguel Earas Raya listed as procurator or lawyer, and all this person presents is a bank account for the fraudulent payment requests of the fake lawyers.

To make innocent consumers think this is all real, they set up a website www.procuradores-raya.com with the same text and logos as with the other fake procurators.

Contact details are limited to an address: Calle Alamo 6, Edificio Watama, 161C, 38002, Santa Cruz, Tenerife.

And an email: procuradores-raya@post.com

None of these procurators seem to have heard of using a telephone for their company.

Sad enough, if you are actually aware of this company Procuradores Raya, it is probably because you already paid these fraudsters or YOU are about to do so.

Please note this is all fake and there is no court claim in Tenerife, and no money awarded to you either.

Do NOT pay them!

If Procuradores Raya or Miguel Earas Raya has contacted you already, do let us know.
