The month of November 2015 has seen 88 active companies who have been cold calling Timeshare owners, or related to cold callers offering services to these owners. From the 88 companies there are 16 new names.
Complete list of the 88 companies can be found on the following link:
There seems to be an increase again in companies who are offering so called “legal services” or claim to be connected to genuine lawyers / solicitors.
Although “cold calling” on itself is not illegal, there is though something to say about solicitors who accept clients approached in the first place by a cold caller.
In the UK, Solicitors who accept claims obtained by cold calling are in breach with the Solicitors Regulation Authority publicity rules.
In Spain a Notary office will never call a client to “inform” that there is money awarded and waited to be transferred to his bank account.
Neither will an official entity such as the court, the tax offices etc. ask for a fee to be paid upfront in order to release awarded money, and never ever would this be into an account under an individual’s name.
It might all sound very repetitive, but unfortunately each month we see these new cold callers telling their “to good to be true” stories, and consumers who fall for this or are seriously considering to go ahead and pay them what they are asking for.
This month’s 16 new company names are:
Central Notary Marbella
Craig Douglas Associates
DN Woolf Association
Estepona Travel SL
Hamilton & Leighton Solicitors SL
Icatf Online lawyers
Ownership Release Services ltd ORS
Palacio de Justicia
Serban & Associates
