A new company has been brought to our attention as they are sending out some very strange emails.
This company is called Timeshare Consultants and they claim to have offices in both Spain and UK.
The email message received from firstname.lastname@example.org is as follows:
I am writing to inform you that we are currently holding compensation that has been rewarded to you, to the amount of £28,990.00. Your compensation has now passed all security checks, we have now been given authorisation to release it from our accounts and finance team. In order for me to release your funds today, you must pay our overseas tax fee which is 10% of your compensation (£2,899.00). Once this has been confirmed by our agent we will release your monies immediately.
Kind regards Peter Nixon

Obviously, it is impossible that any money is awarded to you if you never actively joined a court claim, which needs an appointed lawyer to act on your behalf and the documented evidence that indeed you have been defrauded.
There is no such thing as court claims or class actions done and then the victims are being notified out of the blue and can just collect the “awarded money”
The website mentioned in the email http://www.timeshareconsultants.org/ was registered on 13th of January 2021 and is due to expire in 12 months.
There are actually no company registration details on the website which constitutes a lack of transparency.

If initial contact with Timeshare Consultants was unsolicited, a cold call or email out of the blue, it should certainly be treated with caution. Your personal data cannot be obtained without your permission, so there should be a clear explanation from them on how they obtained these details.
If you have been speaking to any of the agents of Timeshare Consultants or maybe you received a similar email as the one copied above, please let us know.
