Legal Advice Centre in Malaga, cold caller with too much info at hand.

LAC2

Recently we have heard about a company by the name of Legal Advice Centre who is cold calling Timeshare owners who have been defrauded by different bogus resale companies.

Legal Advice Centre does not only know the customer is a Timeshare Owner but also if they have been defrauded, by who and how much money. Not the information one would expect to be out in the open and in hands of complete strangers.

The website http://www.legaladvicecentre.eu/ which was created on the 24th of June 2013 mentions this is a “Consumer action group created by likeminded individuals who have been through the Timeshare experience and come out the other side.”

The services offered range between a refund claim under the Consumer Act to Timeshare Disposal and even a Claim against the resort.

They also explain that because they don’t receive any funds from anybody, they need to charge an upfront fee for their time and services.

Legal Advice Centre does not seem to have an office address and only offers a post box as mailing address: Apartado de Correos 7006, Malaga 29014

Telephone 0034 951 400 003 and email info@legaladvicecentre.eu

There is no such company under the name of Legal Advice Centre registered at the Spanish Companies House.

Seen the above, we certainly recommend Timeshare owners to be cautious when dealing with Legal Advice Centre from 951400003 in Malaga.

If you have been contacted already, please let us know by emailing us at customercare@mindtimeshare.com or placing a comment on this blog.

    Legal advice centre contacted me today regarding getting my
    Money back for my timeshare with DWVC. They said they could get my money back with a substantial amount of interest. I took details, same phone number as described by you, so I’m not getting sucked into this trap!!!

      Just had a cold call from a company called “ExSol” based in Majorca, they  knew about my membership Points with Club La Costa, when I asked how they got my phone number and the information ? “Julie” explained the information was obtained from a database of all timeshare and point membership owners ? some database? I explained that I have been previously scammed by a company called ” Holiday Rentals Direct ” they acknowledged that they knew of these Rip Off Merchants, but have assured me that they will soon have a buyer for my membership points ? Watch this Space ??

      Best Regards Andrew.

    Glad I checked this site, I’ve just been contacted by them and they nearly had me, – again!
    Thank you for publishing this.

  4. Catherine says:

    Sarah Hutchinson from legal advice centre has just cold called me to say she can help me claim back my membership fee for CCC. Using the credit card act and not requiring any payment up front. She knew exactly when I bought the membership and that I had “traded” in another timeshare package. She claims to be from the UK fraud department of the consumer association. When I asked her how she got my information and why she cold called me she got angry! The phone call ended with her saying I was obviously rich and did not need my money back!!! Thnaks to your website I NEVER believe anyone who cold calls me.

    Bernard- getting troubled.
    I was contact by Legal Advice Team and yeas they knew all about my losses through previous companies. I was scammed by Millennium Marketing Group then by Ultimate Finding Company SL and because i had had dealing with two companies they insisted that 2 separate claims would have to be made at 250 euros each therefore not willing to prceed

  6. barry says:

    I have been contacted today and after being scammed by The Personal Travel Group and Half Moon Holdings Idecided to do a check before responding to their email.I am glad I did

  7. Andy says:

    The Legal advice centre Malaga has contacted me today, they seemed to know to much about my circumstances, but they can recover my scammed money..
    I was scammed by Holiday Rentals Direct out of £1500 earlier this year…they had all this information, I suspect a connection somehow ?

  8. A frustrated timeshare owner says:

    I have just been contacted by this group, having had the exact same fraud you’ve described, played on me by Holiday Rentals Direct. I was dubious straight away with them wanting an up front fee, plus the fact that they are calling from a Spanish number, and are based in Spain. I’m glad I have read your feed, as it has helped make up my mind as to whether to pursue it.
