A new cold calling company has been detected by the name of Timeshare Atonement. At present they seem to be targeting mainly Dutch speaking timeshare owners, but this can change of course.
Timeshare Atonement cold calls the consumer in order to assist them in the Spanish courts with the legal procedure to cancel their membership.
Sounds quiet official, and the agent from Timeshare Atonement also explain that in the same procedure the consumer can claim a compensation pay out.
In order to start this procedure the consumer won’t have to pay anything upfront. If the court case is lost, the consumer won’t be liable for the lawyers fees, but in case they win, there will be a legal obligatory administration fees of 9,2% over the awarded amount.
We actually have never heard of such obligatory admin fee!
Timeshare Atonement has a website www.timeshareatonement.com which was registered on the 11th of August 2018, this seems a bit recent for a statement of “we are helping thousands of consumers with their claims”
The contact details of Timeshare Atonement are email email@example.com
A telephone number +34 911 236 169 and they also put an office address as Calle de Sta Engracia, 38, 28010 Madrid
We have not found any company registered at the Spanish companies house by the name of Timeshare Atonement and neither is there any registration number mentioned on their website.
There are no names of lawyers / solicitors working for Timeshare Atonement mentioned on their web in spite of their statement to be working with one of the “leading Spanish law firms” that specialise in mis-sold timeshares.
This company does not exist, and certainly they are not doing any claims.
There documentation looks rather familiar with documents seen from other dubious legal companies in the past.
What you can expect is that after a couple of weeks they will break the news your claim has been awarded, you receive a (fake) copy of the sentence which will mention a large amount awarded to you and then you are expected to pay the 9,2% over this amount BEFORE you can receive your money.
Please do not fall for this trap, as once you pay them the money by bank transfer they will disappear and you won’t be able to claim anything back!
If Timeshare Atonement already approached you for this court claim, calling from 0034 911236169, do let us know.
