The month of July counted 34 cold calling companies in total. Among the 34 we have 11 new company names.
For a complete list of the cold callers please click on the link:
The 11 new company names are:
- ABC Solicitors
- Castillo & Castillo Abogados
- Claim Support Line
- Consumer Action Line
- Expert Mediation
- Fast Disposal
- Girni Real Estate
- Luxury Linx travel
- Prestige Resorts
- Resort Link Concierge
- Timeshare Advice Helpline
Most of the cold callers seem to be targeting consumers with offers to claim in the courts against their resorts.
Please always ask where they obtained your personal and private details. Your details are not open to the public and there are no registers you can access and pull out names of people who own timeshare!
We published as well an article about a set up that seems to have been running for years.
Around 2015 they started with calls to mainly Carpe Diem members and offered them to recuperate their money through the courts as the company had been dissolved.
Initially, the consumer had to pay a small admin fee, and then another one, and soon they found themselves in a spiral of upcoming fees and unexpected taxes, etc.
There is a range of company names involved, the main ones being A&L Services or A and L Services, and Tenerife Experts.

If you are a victim of these fraudsters, and maybe you are still in contact with them, please let us know.
Another Cold caller that needs special attention is the one from the claims in Tenerife.
They started off with Island Breaks, Claim your Claim, Refund my Funds, but of course, we suspect too many consumers did their homework and said no to their offer after reading about them on the Internet.
So now they don’t use a company name and it is all presented as “independent financial advisors”
Just be extra careful when you do receive a call from somebody claiming to be working alongside financial advisors in Tenerife and inviting you to come and discuss your claim on a trip to Tenerife. Names used by the people calling are among others: Daisy Lewis, James Paterson, Luz Periz, Trish Farrell, Bill, and Fiona…
Please note that it makes no sense to travel all the way to Tenerife to discuss a claim. The free week of accommodation is included in the money they charge you for the holiday product they actually sell you at the sales meeting in Tenerife, and no claims have ever been done by these people!
Thanks as always for all the messages and inquiries from consumers, making us aware of the cold calling companies and providing us with information about the new ones.
Have a great month of August!
I have had a phone call from Prestige resorts threatening us with an invoice for £1500 for cancelling a contract that we apparently took out with them 2 years ago . Is this legal ?
Are Spanishlife another sc** company, please?
My parents have just came back from this ‘free holiday’ and have been harassed since returning. Fortunately I did some research whilst they were out there and they only signed documents. However, they have had phone calls threatening them with legal action. They are nasty people!!
