Have you been cold called by Averglade from Torremolinos?


Important note!! 

Please note that in some forums “Averglade” is erroneously named as “Everglade Law”

The company Averglade is a name that has been mentioned numerous time over the past week, and it seems they are on an active cold call campaign.

In their telephone calls the agent from Averglade claims to be a “para legal” person.  Averglade is contacting Timeshare owners, who have been victim of different companies, and they seem to hold all the information about this, and against whom they have won a “huge” court case.

The offer from Averglade is that if the Timeshare owner pays €1000 for the solicitors fees, they make sure he is paid out a compensation from the funds awarded in this court case. They go as far as guaranteeing the Timeshare owner that he will receive all the money back he has ever paid out to the Timeshare companies and all this within 21 days!

They are even as “helpful” to say that if he pays by credit card, if something goes wrong the money can be claimed back under the Consumer Credit Act.

The whole story becomes even stranger if you actually visit the website of Averglade www.averglade.com

On this website there is no mention at all about legal staff or court cases…NO! They present themselves as a Claims Company who specializes in Consumer Act claims! So how does this work then? They take money for solicitor costs and then when the Timeshare owner realizes the story wasn’t true, he can use Averglade again but to claim back the money?


Contact details for Averglade are 0034 958 405130 and email admin@averglade.com

* Contact details seem to have changed and are now info@averglade.com   Their address has changed from Torremolinos to Averglade, Buzon No 8, Local 4, 29004 Malaga, Spain

From telephone conversations they mentioned they are based in Torremolinos. No address or any company identification or registration is available on their web though.

Seen the above total lack of information on the web and contradictive information on the cold call, plus a request of a payment…we certainly feel this company should be handled with extreme caution.

If you have been contacted by Averglade from 958405130 in Torremolinos or Malaga, then please let us know.

    I had a phone call from a Richard Sellen from Enterprise formerly aver glade, claiming me and my husband had £29,000 to claim back. Said he was going to court the next day to sort it out and that the tax payable would be taken out of the £29,000. And said he would call the next day, as I said we need time to think. He didn’t call the next day but he did the following, saying he had been in court all day and for us to get the refund we would have to pay £1,500 up front, gave me all the bank details, the directors name etc etc. But after reading all these comments I think we will steer clear, I did already have a gut feeling that it didn’t seem above board. But you have all confirmed what my suspicions were, so thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

    I was called this morning by a Rebecca Smythe of Averglade Solicitors offering me the money back from the company who sold me ‘Sapphire’ Club Class Membership in 2009.

    I informed her I was wary of engaging in this type of activity because I knew there were many scams out there and what guarantee I had of knowing that her company was not among the scammers. She became a bit agitated at this suggestion and claimed her company is sound and they record all their phone calls – as if that is an endorsement of their worthiness!

    I then asked her how much I am expected to pay up front to participate in this exercise. Her response was that it depended on how much money I was claiming. I then told her, due to the vagueness and questionable purpose, I would not be taking her offer any further. At that point she became very aggressive and, before putting the phone down on me, called me a jumped-up Jock. I am Scottish after all!

    I am of a mind to contact her company, since they record all calls, and ask them to play back the recording of the telephone conversation.,

    My parents have been contacted and have payed 445€. I am now contacting the credit card company to try and stop payment.they have been sent paper work. But I am getting no answer from on phone!! I am very angry that people can con pensioners out off there money!!

  6. Dave says:

    Hi, i also have been contacted today promising i will get all my money back that i was tricked out of by blue chip SL. if i paid them 995 euros but it had to be paid up front. I may have been a fool once but you wont get me twice. I told Karen Stanton to phone back in the morning – just so i had time to check them out. She wouldnt leave her phone number and insisted it was to save my phone bill, that made me suspicious. Glad i have had the chance to find your site. Everyone stay well clear of these evil vultures. Im wondering if she will call back! what do you think?

  7. IAN. says:

    I was contacted by a Rebecca Smyth from Averglade saying they could get monies I had paid to Blue Chip by means of a scam,. She gave my details of the credit used at the time and said the monies were held by the court, and the monies would be paid back to my card minus £750 solicitors fees,I thanked her and she said she ring me later. As soon as she put the phone down I rang my bank and informed them to cancel my credit card and informed them of the reason.I wonder wonder what she will say if she rings again.

    • Sandra says:

      I have just put the phone down after a call from Rebecca Smythe, exactly as described above, the only difference being the name of the company who scammed me in the first place. I told her I needed some time to think about it and she is supposed to be calling me back tomorrow. Thank you so much to this site and all the comments as it has confirmed what I suspected – just another low-life set of people trying to con people who have already been conned in the past. (They must think that makes us easy targets)

  8. Ruth says:

    We were contacted by aver glade, please don’t touch them, if they ring you put the phone down, they took. Money from our account without our permission, nothing but the **** of the earth, please be very careful,

Within two minutes I received a. All from Oscar Newman who claims to be from the Visa / MasterCard dispute menegement team ( Visa / MasterCard are two seperate companies).

  16. steve says:

    Just to let you know I was called today by Duncan Moore of Averglades who even states that Alberto is a crook and was put in Jail.


  17. anthony says:

    I have been contacted by a Mr Jacobs working for Averglade law, who states he can claim money back for me that i paid to Connect 6, and blue chip. this to me seems like another scam, they always seem to know my credit card number which makes me think they are all the same people using different names, Half moon holdings,Holiday rentals,etc.I’m an honest person who trusted other people, not any more.Trust no one.

  18. Mel says:

    Contacted this morning by a Mr Cohen from Averglade. A very short tempered man and sensitive to any intimation that he may not be legitimate. Had to cut him off as he was getting very irate said he was a solicitor, “don’t think so”

  19. Chris says:

    I’ve received 3 extended phone calls from someone called Sarah at Averglade today. Same sort of scam as others listed above I think! She seems to know a lot about problems I’ve had with Blue ChipSL and by dint of lots of “chatting” gleaned other info about the said company scam. money promised but as I’ve been diddled twice before I was extremely skeptical. I asked for paperwork to be posted out first but was told that they didn’t do that but would email me a basic invoice for 990 euros. Still awaiting the email so started trawling the web for info on the company. Found this site and have decided not to touch them with the proverbial bargepole.!!

  20. barbara says:

My parents were told that the individuals involved in selling their “blue chip sl time share” were in prison and Averglade had all the info and would help my parent to get the moneys they had payed. we need help please, i have two parents at their wits end………

  21. Karen says:

    Yes we have been contacted by these people! Martin Howard is a
    persistent man!

    He said money was held in a court in Malaga for compensation for our
    Full Circle Holiday club compensation.

    I told him how I thought the ‘sc**’ would unfold. He said I was calling
    him a criminal and he wouldn’t waste any more breath on me! Phew
