This new alert goes out for a company called RCB Associates which claims to be appointed by the Spanish Court.
They cold call timeshare consumers who have been defrauded in the past, and explain that there have been court cases where money has been set aside to be paid out to the victims.
RCB Associates has been charged to find the victims from the UK and claim on their behalf the part of the money from the settlement that corresponds to each victim.
The company RCB ASSOCIATES states their Address is (Pasaje) Pje. De Pizarro 50/C, 29620 Torremolinos in Spain
Tel +34 951 247057 and Fax 0872 115 66 (are there numbers missing?)
There is no website and the contact email is firstname.lastname@example.org
In order to do the claim, the timeshare owner, the victim of a previous scam (!!) has to pay a fee to the “company administrator” of £375
The name of this administrator is Richard Charles Bundy (RCB)
Please note that there is NO such thing as the Spanish courts or Government appointing companies lo locate victims of scams and then ask for a fee in order to release money set aside for them through the court.
There is no such company by the name of RCB Associates registered at the Spanish Companies House, and neither on the above mentioned address.
RCB Associates cold calls and knows you have been a victim of a scam. You can only guess how they obtained this information!
If you have been called by RCB Associates from 951247057 please let us know.
You can email us at email@example.com or place a comment on this blog.
anyone heard of RCS LTD PLEASE got a phone call this morning they didnt get anywhere tho as my husband took details from them.
Don’t touch them with a barge pole!!! After my parents got similar calls, I did some digging and found some horrific info out about them. I decided to email them and ask how they live with themselves whilst trying to con good people. They replied that if timeshare owners weren’t ‘such greedy bastards’ then no one would need to be conned.
I emailed rcbassociates after they were badgering my parents for money with the same promises as described above. The email trail follows:
“You’re family must be soooooo proud of your career choice! ”

I’m so gutted to think this company and it’s employees are conning good people out of their money. Are these ‘companies’ not regulated? Is there no law against this?
We have been contacted this evening (30th Aug ) by Amy Wood, RCB ASSOCIATES in Malaga, saying they help ex patriots with their legal problems and the admin fee of £275 is to retreive our €6250 Timelinx award from the court. The paperwork will be emailed to us later on. Thanks to everyone for the warnings. Will let you know if we find any more information.
I have been contacted by RCB and I thought it could be another scam regarding Incentive leisure group.
I had no intention of paying any upfront fees as I have been caught before by a company calling themselves Bratley and Sharp claiming to be solicitors, they cost me over £3000.00.
I was then contacted by Timeshare Exit Solutions who claimed they would get my money back through section 75, this cost me £438.00. I sent my documents to Teneriffe, they were returned unopened.
So I am very wary of cold calls regarding this matter
Same rubbish as above. Asked why no website, was told it didn’t need one. Yawn.
Lovely Rita a smidgin miffed when I refused to give money, asked for it to taken from euros, told usual tripe about it being admin fees. Can’t think of any other solicitor service where money is wanted up front. Was told my conversation was being recorded and had to say that I didn’t want to proceed for legal reasons, more yawn. Must think we’ve just come down out of the trees.
Received a call on 29th July telling me I had 3250 euros and need to send £180 by bank transfer – like I would pay by any means other than Credit card having managed to recover under section 75 when I fell for another scam.
Awaiting their follow up call today – guess having read comment I know now exactly where to stick their contract!
Yes I have received a call from Rita Barbera working for RCB, she told me much the same as the messages above, that 2 Spanish men and 1 British men had been arrested and were now in prison, they had got my details from the Spanish Police/Courts and we re to receive 3250.00 Euros to recover what we had paid Simple Timeshare Sales plus compensation, we have been sent an email with all the details in and asking us to make a payment of £330.00 to the bank details supplied, like I’m really going to fall for it this time, they always make it sound so good and official, I was actually going to take the document to a solicitor to have them check it out, but now I’ve seen these messages I’ll just put it in ‘file 13’. We did get a call back to ask if we had received the email but we were out so they left a message to say they would call next week as this only happened yesterday (Fri 27 Jul), I will keep you informed, but don’t worry I ain’t paying anything.
Hi, yes I had a call from Olive Murray, she had all my details of a previous scam ‘Simple Timeshares’, claimed i had been awarded compensation etc, but yes had the admin fee to pay!!! When I asked for the website, they dont have one??? She still tried to convince me, but guess what, they have not sent me an email confirming the company and have not rang since, scam scam scam!!
Hi, yes we have been contacted today by Olive Murray who also claimed we had been awarded compensation etc.also that the men involved in the scam were now all in prison and that we were one of only 150 people who the Spanish police were able to verify as being owed money.We have received an email from RC Bundy (email@example.com).We have also been asked to pay £425.00 for admin fees and bank fees etc.We are very,very wary
Is there anyway we can safely / legally dispose of our timeshare
I dont know which timeshare you have, but i had infiniti / petchey points, i wrote them a letter as we receive news letters from them saying how brilliant there holidays are, and i asked to surrender them back as we have not used them for over 3yrs and added as they say there industry is going from strength to strength they could make more use of them. I then phoned them and within 2wks they had sent a surrender form to us, which we filled in straight away an sent off with owner cert ,all fees had to be paid up (not problem if it gets us out of it) and that was that,such a relief after going to see ILG and getting scammed, i have no problem not receiveing any money for our points its a loss but got to look at the bigger picture in the long run.Good luck hope you get out of it too.
