The Overseas Group in Madrid, cold callers for Court liaison.


A new company has been brought to our attention, this time by the name of Overseas Group.

This company cold calls Timeshare consumers who have been previously defrauded by bogus resale companies. Overseas Group knows all about that, even the amounts paid and how much these companies offer for the timeshare sale.

The reason why Overseas Group is calling is because these bogus companies now have gone into liquidation.

The Timeshare owner can now through court claim back the money they paid and even the money that was offered for the sale. (Not sure how that works!)

There are no costs for the Timeshare owner, and all they need to pay is a 10% of the Court Liaisons fees. Upfront that is of course….

Overseas Group has a website which was registered on the 26th of August.

On the website they don’t seem to mention any company details such as Companies House Registration or identification of the supposed legal advisers working in this firm.

Contact details are Madrid Financial District, Calle Velazquez 22, 28006 Madrid

Telephone 0034 951 239 336

Emails: or

The lack of proper company information from Overseas Group, being a supposed legal company, the fact there is no court case at all of any dubious resale company and the cold calls to Timeshare consumers, don’t really place this company in a very good position. We would certainly recommend being very cautious.

In case you have been contacted already by Overseas Group in Madrid from +34 951239336 then please let us know.

    It seems as I am in the same boat as other I have paid £550 to the office in Madrid, then passed on to another office in the Malaga area a chap called James Reid spoke to me and asked for a fee for tax purposes which would be returned on filling a 021 form this money to be paid would go to a notary whatever that is, I did this with another scam some time age, on investigation found out I was scammed with a money transfer there is no protection at all.
    I tried to pay the transaction this time with my credit card but this is not allowed so there is no protection for the person paying any amount so they lose money.
    I have discussed the situation with my bank manager and she referred me to your site, I now know that I am not the only one to come across this situation.
    It would be very good if these people could be closed down or even brought to court to be brought to justice for their crimes.

    FROM MAUREEN. PAID £550 by credit card to Overseas . Next day after reading comments on your website, I cancelled my credit card payment.and sent Overseas an email. My credit co have refunded me, but say the Overseas may try to take it again. I did have a message on my answer machine from Overseas saying that Billie J would be getting touch with me, but have since heard nothing. Reading above comments I have been lucky.

    I have had a phone call from the Overseas Group. Can’t remember her name but she said she had news that they had the £8000 owed to me by Blue Chip after a court hearing. The condition is that I pay the tax of £1180 for the funds to be released. Boy o boy have I heard that before. I said I would have to speak to my husband to put her off for the time being. I have now logged on to your web site and low and behold yet another scam. I am now fed up with all these bogus companies preying on vulnerable people.

    I have been ‘had’ again…this time by Eurobrook Limited. They assured us that they would get our
    money back from a Company called Beauregard who we stupidly gave £1,250. We obtained
    two vouchers, one for £200 and the other for £100, which would be returned when a courier
    delivered two brown envelopes containing £6,295 and the other for the £300 vouchers. They
    have now asked for another £400: we now realise that this is another fiddle!!!!!

    I was today called by OVERSEAS GROUP based in Madrid who offered to reclaim money I’d put up front to a company called Holiday Homes Direct. The girl had all my details correct and when I asked how she came by them, I was told the Spanish Government. I explained that my credit card company had dealt with this some time ago and I had received a refund. I also told her that I no longer dealt with Spanish companies over the telephone or was not prepared to part with any money. As you can imagine, the conversation terminated quite quickly!! Smells very strongly of yet another scam.

  6. Wendy says:

    Unfortunately i have been sc***** by this company . In October Denise Johnson called me to say i could get my money back from simple time share who scammed me previously . I am so furious with myself for falling for this in the hope of getting some of the thousands of pounds i have already lost back . All it has done is lost me another £1908 and a constant promise of a return call from the company to tell me when i will receive my money that never comes . My phone calls are being ignored as well as my emails … I first had to pay £500 court cost which of course i would be getting back then £833 tax , then £550 for an NIE number because i couldn’t have this money paid to me without one under Spanish law . I am at a loss as what to now!

  7. John says:

    This all seems horribly familiar. It looks like Truevalid all over again. I paid ‘Court Fees’ up front and now silence and unable to contact by ‘phone – number given ‘dead’.

  8. mark says:

    just had a call from martin who is with the same offer as the other people onthis site

  9. David says:

    Yes I have been contacted by this company with the identical format, I said that I will go to Madrid and deal with the Liaison Officer of the court in Madrid they agreed but I will have to spend up to 21 days in Madrid and the cost of staying will be more than what they are offering £550 for the upfront fee, so far I have refused.

  10. sandra says:

    I have been called today by this company ‘overseas group’.Again asking for £550 upfront for court fees, then I will receive cheques in 14 to 21 days.Sounds convincing but who do you trust.

  11. Graham says:

    I was called by same company a couple of days ago. I previously “sold” my holiday club membership to Truevalid for £10.5K plus £895 legal charge. I would be paid total of £12195 which would include the £550 I now have to pay up front to a court liason officer who will recover same from assets of liquidated Truevalid. Sounds dodgy

  12. John says:

    1 have received a phone call from Denise Johnson on 0034917610971 today at 10.20am. She wanted me to pay £550.00 by Bankers Draft or Credit Card
    This is money for a Court Liason file to be presented in the Madrid Courts so that I can claim £6000.00 that as been awarded to me from a COMPANY that as been closed down and all their assets ceased.
    The COMPANY is

    I was scammed by this COMPANY in JULY 2012.
    Denise Johnson works for a company called OVERSEAS GROUP they are based in MADRID FINANCIAL quarter. I declined her offer because she said I would receive 2 chqs in 14-21 days .One for £6000.00 and one for £550.00 delivered to my door by Courier!!!! Does this sound familiar.
