Who spoke to Douglas Forbes from the Divisional Finance Protection Services?


Mr. Forbes has been busy lately with cold calling Timeshare consumers who have been duped in the past by different Holiday Clubs.

Douglas Forbes claims to be the Legal Counsel from Divisional Finance Protection Services based in Esplanade, St. Helier,Jersey.

Contact details Tel: 0203 137 2280 and Email Douglas.Forbes@Lawyer.com

On the cold call, Mr. Forbes explains to the Timeshare owner that their “Legal Department” will be able to claim on behalf of the consumer in order to get their money back paid to a Dubious Holiday club such as Carpe Diem, Club Class, Travel Connect, Timelinx, etc.

The Legal Department of Divisional Finance Protection Services will do the following:

1. Study your claim and prepare the paperwork for your claim against the relevant company.

2. Establish the veracity of your claim, and communicate the same to yourself within 48 – 72 hours of receipt of your paperwork.

3. Undertake all relevant translations of the paperwork.

4. Submit paperwork to the Notary and get all translations and photocopies AUTHORISED from NOTARY and make it “legally verified “or “true copies”.

In order to convince the Timeshare Owner they even mention that “We have until now successfully claimed for over 400+ families like yours against this same group of companies, total claims amount in the region of just over a 1.8 million Euros”

Wow, such a successful company and up till now nobody had ever heard from them!

They also confirm that they will provide the owner with a minimum of two settlement offers within 60 days of the receipt of the signed agreement contract. The settlement will usually be a minimum in the region of 60% – 70% of the total monies paid by the owner up to a 100% plus Legal Costs plus damages.

Please note that there is no such company as Divisional Finance Protection Services registered at the UK Companies House. Neither have there been any court cases against the companies mentioned by Douglas Forbes in his introductory email.

We certainly recommend caution when dealing with this person / company.

    I was called by Douglas Forbes regarding possible compensation to be won from previously being conned by timeshare, Carpe Diem.
    This is on a no-win-no-fee basis.

    He also stated their legal department would be taking on the case, and explained if we won, a 25% fee would be payable to Divisional Finance, 30 days after receipt of any compensation won.

    I have checked to see if they are a legitimate company, and registered.
    THEY ARE REGISTERED, and the address in Jersey is the registered address.
    When I call their offices, they do answer, and usually deal with any queries I might have.

    They are registered as:
