Opnieuw een valse advocaat uit Granada, nu heten ze Suarez Aleman!

Deze week stak een nieuwe en frauderende advocaat de kop op onder de naam Suarez Aleman.

Zoals we hebben gezien met andere valse advocaten die ook Nederlandse Timesharing eigenaars hebben gebeld, de naam Suarez Aleman is overgenomen van een echte advocaat.

Maar de contact gegevens, adres en de taal op de website heeft niets te maken met deze echte advocaat.

De heer Andre van de Weerdt van Suarez Aleman uit Granada belt eigenaars van een Timesharing zomaar ineens op.

Het excuus dat hij gebruikt om te verklaren dat hij de persoonlijke gegevens heeft van deze timeshare eigenaar is dat de gegevens uit het Timeshare Register komen.

Klinkklare onzin en uiteraard bestaat dit register totaal niet en zou illegaal zijn gezien de wet van privacybescherming.

Andre, legt uit dat er veel rechtszaken lopen tegen de verschillende resorts waaronder ook het resort waar de consument een lidmaatschap heeft.

De eigenaar van de timesharing kan nog net meedoen aan een lopende aanklacht.

Het duurt niet lang voordat Andre opnieuw terugbelt en verteld dat de rechter meer dan 40.000 euro heeft toegekend aan de consument.

Het enige wat de timeshare eigenaar nu moet doen zijn de gerechtelijke en administratiekosten van een 9,2% over het uitbetalende bedrag.

Dit moet de consument storten op een fiduciair bankrekening waarop ook het resort het geld stort. De rekening staat op de naam van mevrouw Louiza Ochan, de fiduciair ambtenaar.

Die naam hadden we al eerder gehoord!

Om het allemaal geloofwaardig over te laten komen heeft Suarez Aleman een website opgezet in Juli van dit jaar: https://suarezaleman.com

Contact gegevens van Suarez Aleman zijn:

Bovenstaand bedrijf is een oplichterij. Als u het geld stort in de naam van Louiza Ochan zijn we bang dat u dit nooit meer terug gaat zien, dus BETAAL NIET!

Mocht u al zijn benaderd door Andre van de Weerdt of Louiza Ochan van Suarez Aleman, laat het ons dan zo snel mogelijk weten.

Dear All,

Attached the latest cold caller report for the month of October 2019.

Most of the cold callers are offering claims.

For a complete list of the 45 cold calling companies please click on below link:

Cold Callers October 2019

The 7 new company names added to the report are:

Please note that the calls might be “cold” for you, but these are certainly not random calls when the person on the other end of the line knows perfectly well what you own, where you own and how much you paid for this!

These private and personal details are not open to the public, there are no registers these companies can access and take out names and contact details, it is just not true!

Your personal details are protected by the Data Protection Law, and any cold calling company is not complying with this law to start.

The fact these plausible people on the line have all your details, should not create a sense of “trust”, it should be the complete contrary and alarm bells should be ringing immediately!

If you receive cold calls about your timeshare or holiday ownership, do let us know.

VRC Claims or Viking Real Estates and Consultant, offering claims and relinquishments.

The company Viking Real Estate and Consultant is one of the latest claims/relinquishment companies that have been brought to our attention.

Viking Real Estate and Consultant is based in Tenerife.

The initial contact is made with a lady called Melanie Hill who presents herself as the company consultant.

Melanie explains the consumer about the possibility to claim back the money paid to the timeshare resort and she follows this up with an email including a draft of the agreement the consumer would enter.

The agreement seems to be for what they call “legal consultancy services” where the consultant (Viking Real estates) will provide advice about a relinquishment or claim.

In this agreement, there is no mention of any lawyer or legal company with a full name and registration number.

Although it mentions that this consultancy agreement includes “Filing of Demands” it appears to be strange that the client would not know which lawyer would be representing them.

The agreement is made out in the name of Viking Real Estates and Consultant, which as the name already indicates you would expect to be a registered real estate company, not a legal company. But checking the Spanish Companies House, this company is registered with activity: Food services.

Upon signing this agreement the consumer is expected to pay a 49.45% over the amount that will be claimed.

Contact details from Melanie at Viking Real Estates are her email: melanie@vrcclaims.com

And telephone numbers: +34 922945126 or 0203 0265 738

The strange thing is that the kindly refers to the company website www.vikingrealestaes.es

But this website has not been built yet and the domain was registered at the beginning of September 2019.

If you look at the website www.vrcclaim.com there is more information about the supposed relinquishment and claims services, but again the website has not been finished and a lot of text is missing.

 

Seen the above it seems rather strange that the company states on their website that they have done already 587 successful claims…

If Viking Real Estates and Consultant or VRC Claims have approached you with their offer for claims and relinquishment services, please do let us know.

Timeshare Termination Team UK offering relinquishment services

Another cold caller has been brought to our attention this week, this one by the name of Timeshare Termination Team UK.

This company is not to be mistaken with a company by the exact same name which has been doing business in the USA for years.

The one that is cold calling mainly UK consumers is Timeshare Termination Team UK with their website  timeshareterminationteam.co.uk

On the website, it is mentioned that Timeshare Termination Team is a trading style of Exit My Timeshare Group.

The website seems to be full of inconsistencies. They claim to have been around since 2014, but the web was registered in June 2019.

So far, they say they have terminated over 500 Timeshare contracts, and recovered over £600,000 in claims for their clients. Which seems an awful lot of money in only 4 months’ time.

In the different sections of the web, it looks like there is a lot of information, but we were unable to find, for example, a Companies House registration number for Timeshare Termination Team or Exit my Timeshare Group.

Contact details from the web are:
Penstraze Business Centre, Penstraze, Truro, Cornwall, TR4 8PN

Email: info@timeshareterminationteam.co.uk
Telephone; 01872 308699

If Timeshare Termination Team UK has contacted you with their offer for relinquishment services, please let us have your feedback.

Who received an email or letter from Perez Alonso Abogados y Asesoria?

This is now becoming a Saga.

It all started with the letter from Solutions Group in August, explaining to consumers who dealt with them in the past, that their court case was finally due in court.

Everybody seemed to be part of the same claim, as everybody was included in the court hearing of the 25th of September and they all were going to receive 32.000 Euros.

Independently if consumers replied to the letter, more notifications regarding this matter were received.

A very confusing explanation about awarded money and the taxes due, and the supposed appointed collection agent which was CUC Abogados.

Now we have a new chapter in this Saga.

Consumers who didn’t fall for the letter from CUC Abogados, are now approached again and this time the name is Perez Alonso Abogados y Asesoria.

Yet again there is an explanation about taxes, money awarded anyway, and fees due.

The letter is signed by Mr. David Fernandez Perez.

Mr. Perez asks the consumers for a payment of 1920 Euros which is needed for the lawyers to instigate the enforcement of the judgment for the amount of 32.000 Euros.

As soon as the money is received, the lawyer from Perez Alonso Abogados will file a “motion of conservatoire” so the debtors cannot “obscure” their assets in order to avoid or reduce the chance of having to pay.

It sounds all very official, but it really makes no sense at all!

The consumers have never given their consent for this lawyer to be acting on their behalf, and still, they seem to have been included in a court claim, and what is even more surprising, they got money awarded.

This is a complete lie!

Details from the company Perez Alonso Abogados y Asesoria are:

The website has not been developed and they disguise this by a message on the screen stating you probably have no access code.

If the lawyer’s company Perez Alonso Abogados has approached you already, please do let us know.

Don’t pay the 1920 Euros as we are afraid you won’t see them back!

Ridgeway Advisory Consultants, from account holders to cold callers

 

The name Ridgeway Advisory Consultants has been mentioned over the past years in different inquiries.

In most inquiries, they showed up as the account holders for money that was requested by different companies.

The latest ones being International Clearance and Oficina Judicial Andalucía

But they must have thought this was all too long-winded and too many people in between, so now we have Ridgeway Advisory Consultants cold calling consumers directly.

Different agents contact consumers. One of the agents is Victoria Phillips who on the first call inquires if the consumer has had dealings with a certain company. If the consumer says yes, Victoria explains that Ridgeway is reclaiming lost monies for a group of affected consumers. The consumer can join this group by paying £800.00 to cover Paralegal fees.

After some time a Mathew Carrington rings to tell the consumer they are in a group of 40 other consumers and they should be awarded £20.000, which should be paid to them in several week’s time.

Now they have the final amount the consumer is going to receive, he is expected to pay their 11% fee of £2200 including VAT, minus the £800,00 paid already.

But as always things are not that straight forward as expected. Mathew Carrington calls again after a week and explains to the consumer they can expect a call from the accounts/legal department from  John Wallace to organise finalisation.

But John Wallace has another request for money; this time it is for Spanish Gift Tax £2,500 including VAT.

Please note this is all a fraud. There is no such thing as group claims against holiday companies you can just join by agreeing over the telephone and sending a copy of the utility bill and passport.

Contact details for Ridgway Advisory consultants are:

Email: info@ridgewayadvisoryconsultants.com & rwilliamsridgewayac@mail.uk Telephone 0203 150 2261

Website: http://www.ridgewayadvisoryconsultants.com On the website there is nothing that indicates they are lawyers or anything near to that.

One of the supposed claims is against ILG/DWVC; this company went into liquidation in January 2011. It makes no sense at all to tell people there are claims against this company. There is nothing left! And certainly not payments to consumers of around 20k.

If Ridgeway Advisory Consultants has contacted you with a similar story, please do let us know.
