We will start with Brian Carr, the 30 year old alleged leader of the conspiracy and the oldest of the two Redditch brothers who were at the heart of this ‘calculated and cynical’ fraud that netted more than £800,000 from hundreds of unsuspecting timeshare owners.
As per the Redditch Advertiser, Brian Carr had a lavish life style taking luxury holidays and feeding a £400-a-week cocaine habit.
He is connected to a range of companies, some of them set up through the Companies House and where he appears to be the administrator or Director.
The name of Brian William Carr can be found connected to the following companies:
- RSB Legal
- Ownership Release Services Ltd
- Timesure Solutions Ltd
- Legal Release Ltd
- Legal Release International Ltd
- Creative Solutions Ltd
- Property Management Services
- Simple Property Marketing Solutions Ltd
- Title Exchange Service Ltd
- International Holiday Ownership Consultants
- Sun Coast Leisure
Many of these companies have been mentioned in blog articles of Mindtimeshare.
As mentioned, the fraud is certainly to a much larger extend and involves many more companies, as in the above mentioned list, as many of them were on their turn directly connected with others.
So even though Brian Carr cannot be directly connected to those companies, there certainly is a link between them.
One of the main ones, and most active ones in the past couple of years is certainly RSB Legal.
RSB Legal was mentioned to us the first time in November 2015 and in direct connection to Ownership Release Services.
But RSB Legal was not the cold calling company who invited people over to discuss a claim against their resort at a meeting with a so-called Legal advisor.
The companies calling for RSB Legal have been so far:
- Taylor Marshall Associates
- Henley Consultants (fake)
- Warwickshire Consultants
- Charles Ashworth Consultants
- Anderson Read Consultancy
- Harwood Jones Consultancy
- FHA Marketing
- Edwards Consultancy
For those not familiar with the above, all these companies were cold calling with the story about a claim against the Timeshare resort, guaranteed claims based on their numerous successes.
But consumers ended up in meetings with consultants from RSB Legal, selling them a relinquishment service, which had to be taken up prior to starting the claim.
Paying thousands of pounds upfront, many of these consumers didn’t even see their timeshare relinquished…and about a claim we haven’t heard anything.
RSB Legal “disappeared” at some point throughout 2017, leaving numerous consumers (victims) behind whom after trying to contact them wrote to us in great distress as they realized they had lost their money.
When RSB Legal stopped appearing in the paperwork the name of Standon Mortimer came up and has been used up to now for the same calls and same meetings.
In June 2017 we also detected a new Claims Company called Timesure Solutions.
The UK Companies House informs that Timesure Solutions Ltd is active since 23/02/2016, registered at the same address as the address shown on the website timesure.co.uk
Appointed Company Director is Brian Carr, from the same registration date.
The website www.timesure.co.uk, with telephone number 0333 5772 334, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, address: Suite 7, The Business Centre, Redditch, B97 6HA, is connected to the company Timesure Solutions ltd.
They are shown as a company who handles Timeshare disposals and claims against the timeshare resorts.
In the next chapter we will continue the list of companies connected to the names of the people sentenced.
