A new cold caller has been brought to our attention, using the name of Morgan Scott Marketing.
The person calling on behalf of Morgan Scott Marketing is offering the timeshare owner a claim against their resort.
When they call for the first time they already seem to be aware the consumer owns timeshare and where.
Being an un-solicited call it sounds like this company is not taking very serious the Data Protection law.
Part of the conversation of Morgan Scott Marketing is that there have been law changes recently in Spain (really?) and due to these changes the consumer might be eligible for a claim.
In order to assess the claim, the caller send the consumer a so called “assessment form” which needs to be filled in by return email.
Surprisingly everybody seems to be eligible and is invited to meetings, which they are holding around the UK in order to discuss the claim further.
In their follow up email they confirm that “Canarian Legal Alliance agents have contracted us to update timeshare, points and fractional owners on the law changes in Spain and to see if they are eligible for a claim.”
Strange thing is though that if you visit the website from Morgan Scott Marketing www.morganscottmarketing.com the company is presented as a “telemarketing” service for third party companies.
There is nothing on this website that indicates any legal qualification of the staff calling consumers that could back up the fact they are talking about law changes and verifying if people can claim or not…
The website was registered on the 3rd of October 2018
Apart from the telephone number +34 951 12 18 55 and email address firstname.lastname@example.org the only “company details” are the address where they are supposedly based: Condes de San Isidro 1, 29640, Fuengirola, Malaga
There is no Companies house registration number, no Privacy statement, nothing really you would expect from a formal company.
Please note that we are not aware of any recent law changes in Spain, and if you would be eligible for a claim there is no need to attend any meeting in the UK.
Court claims are to be assessed by lawyers and lawyers do not cold call.
If Morgan Scott Marketing has approached you already, please do let us know.
