We received this week several requests about the background of a so-called law firm in Granada. The name of this bogus firm is Suarez Aleman.
This name is taken from a real Spanish lawyer, but contact details, address, nothing coincides so the only purpose of taking this name is to mislead those consumers who try to do their research.
Mr. Andre van de Weerdt from Suarez Aleman is cold calling timeshare consumers.
The excuse that he uses to explain that he has the personal data of this timeshare owner is that this data comes from the Timeshare Register.
Pure nonsense and of course this register does not exist at all and would be illegal given the law of privacy and data protection.
Andre explains that there are many lawsuits against the various resorts including the resort where the consumer has their membership.
The timeshare owner is offered to participate in a current indictment, which is about to go through the courts.
It takes Andre van de Weerdt less than a week to call back again and confirm that the judge has ruled against the resort and ordered the timeshare company to pay out over 40.000 euros to the consumer.
The only thing the timeshare owner has to do now is paying the legal and administrative costs of 9.2% over the awarded amount.
The consumer must transfer this payment to a fiduciary/escrow bank account where the resort will also deposit the money.
The bank account is in the name of Mrs. Louiza Ochan, the supposed fiduciary officer.
To make it all come across as credible, Suarez Aleman set up a website in July this year: www.suarezaleman.com
Contact details of Suarez Aleman are:
- Address Gran Vía de Colon 33, 18001 Granada
- Tel +34 611 213 153
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org
The above company is a scam. If you deposit the money in the name of Louise Ochan we are afraid that you will never see this again, so DO NOT PAY!
If Andre van de Weerdt or Louiza Ochan has already approached you from Suarez Aleman, please let us know as soon as possible.
