Has Kourtesis Real Estate contacted you to sell your timeshare to Astra Airline?

A new bogus resale company was brought to our attention under the name of Kourtesis Real Estate supposedly based in Athens, Greece.

Kourtesis Real Estate contacts timeshare speaking French owners by cold calling and telling them a story about a corporate buyer they already have on hold, keen on buying their weeks, and the price offered is of course above the current market price.

The company that was supposed to buy timeshare weeks is Astra Airline. This is all a lie!

The timeshare owner is asked for payment.

Kourtesis Real Estate sends the consumer a copy of a (fake) resale contract and they claim money for resale rights and land registration.

Contact details for Kourtesis Real Estate:

Email: kourtesis@gmail.com

Telephone +30 21 1989231

Please note that cold calling companies obviously got your contact details and membership details through an illegal source!… they are not trustworthy!

Martinez Notaries or Notarias Martinez, as fake as it can get!

This cold caller already had their dedicated space on our blog last year, but as they seem to have made a “come-back” after several months of no calls, they deserve again a mention.

A lady called Annie Tyler is cold calling from this fake and bogus notary office Martinez Notaries.

The story is about a court claim against a fraudulent company the consumer has been dealing with in the past, and the judge has ruled against the company and they have to pay back all the money to their victims.

Each victim will be offered a settlement and Notarias Martinez has been appointed by the courts to contact these victims and agree on a settlement and process the transfer of the awarded money.

The services from Martinez Notaries are not for free though and Annie Tyler kindly sends the consumer an invoice for their legal services. These invoices do not include any company address.

The services from Martinez Notaries are a legal requirement for the transfer of the consumers’ settlement. Once Notarias Martinez has received this payment the settlement will be dispatched within 12 working days.

All they mention is their telephone: (+34) 634173099 and Fax. 07011 973 213

Previously these numbers were (+34) 603208693, (+34) 634173099 and Fax: 07011972107

They also display a supposed Spanish Company Registration number a so-called CIF number in Spain; B82685245. Surprisingly, in previous correspondence, they used a completely different CIF number: B92785054.

Neither of these numbers actually exist.

So far the only thing that remains unchanged is the email address: notariasmartinez@gmail.com

Other names of staff members used throughout the documents are James Watson and Juliette Sinclair.

Bank account holders are in different names but the ones standing out are Natalia M. Martinez, Geraldine Martinez, and Jordan Francisco Martinez.

So apparently an entire family is acting as a notary?

Please do not fall for this scam. This is a bogus notary, no court settlements have been offered to anybody out of the blue, and no notaries are involved in court settlements anyway.

DO NOT PAY COLD CALLERS!

It is not normal a cold caller has all your private details and knows about your dealings with scam companies in the past!

Be careful with the cold calls from Brookfield Associates

More of the same really this Brookfield Associates.

Cold calls and an agent with far too much knowledge of personal and private details from the consumers. Not a good sign!

Names used for these agents are among others, Alan Farthing, Sophie Moore, and Andrew Makin.

The first call is about an upcoming claim in the Spanish courts against ILG/DWVC, Eze Group, Club Class, etc.

The consumers can join this claim, and Brookfield Associates is going to act on their behalf. Just like that. No paperwork, no verification of documents, nothing. You just join the claim over the phone.

After a couple of days, the agent from Brookfield Associates calls back and brings the good news that the claim has been heard and the consumer is awarded a substantial amount of money. Amounts between £38,000 of the £48,000 are mentioned.

The consumer has to confirm he agrees with this settlement.

Once confirmed with the court in Malaga, he is asked for a 10% admin fee into an escrow account before Brookfield Associates would be able to process the paperwork to release the money. It isn’t possible to take this 10% of the awarded amount.

For the payment, they provide a UK bank account in the name of “Our One Club”.

A company that appears to be a holiday club and based in the UK.

When asked how legal fees for a supposed Spanish based company have to be paid into the UK bank account of a holiday club, the agent explains they outsource the payments.

Please note that court claims cannot be joined just like that, and neither is there any claims going against DWVC, ILG, EZE Group or Club Class.

Contact details for Brookfield Associates are:

Email:dhk@ouroneclub.com

Telephone: 0034 603 200 760

We couldn’t find a website for Brookfield Associates.

The website of Our One Club http://ouroneclub.com mentions in the Contact details the company O1C Leisure and Legal Solutions S.L.

That explains the story about the court claims then.

If Brookfield Associates has contacted you with a similar nonsense story, please do let us know.

CUC ABOGADOS, the legal collection agency who will unblock your money…

Last month we placed a warning about a letter consumers received from the company Solutions Group. In this letter, they notified the consumer about the upcoming court date for a claim they supposedly initiated a long time ago, on behalf of the consumer.

This letter has now a follow-up. CUC Abogados, or Caneillo Utierros Ciusapi Abogados, a bogus lawyers company from Tenerife contacts the consumers.

They explain they are a legal collection agent who is working in conjunction with Spanish courts.

CUC Abogados states in the letter that as the consumer is probably aware “the payment behavior of the Spaniards is one of Europe’s worst”

Due to this problem, they see the need for a collection agent, to enforce the judgment because if not, the consumer won’t ever see their money.

As it looks like the consumer will receive a substantial award through the court, CUC Abogados recommends their enforcement to make sure the debtor will be paid out.

For 1975 Euros, the lawyer from CUC Abogados will make sure the debtor will not obscure assets or reduce the chance of redress in any other possible way.

Contact details for the fake CUC Abogados are telephone 0800 9202491

Email: CUC-ABOGADOS@consultant.com

Website: https://caneillo-utierros-ciusapi.com this website was registered on the 12th of August 2019.

The person signing the letter from CUC Abogados is David Lomerz Utierros and the other bogus lawyers are Mariano Manac Caneillo and Chimno Hernandez Ciusapi.

Mr. Ciusapi kindly includes his bank account in the letter for the payment of the 1975 Euros. This is his personal bank account of course…

Please note that this is all a scam! There is no such thing as an upcoming court claim against ILG/DWVC in September.

There is no such company as CUC Abogados, and the only company we could find with this name is based in Mexico!

If Solutions Group or any “lawyers” company such as CUC Abogados has approached you by phone, email or letter with stories about upcoming claims, compensation payouts, and collection services, please do let us know.

Timeshare Cold Callers August 2019

Dear Consumer,

Summer is coming to an end and so has the month of August.

The cold caller list for this past month of August gave us 45 cold calling companies of which 12 companies are new additions to this list.

For a complete list of all active cold calling companies in August 2019, please click on the link:

Cold Callers Month of August 2019

The names of the 12 new companies are

Most cold callers are supposed claims companies. Many of them targeting mainly Eze Group consumers. Unfortunately, the client data from Eze Group seems to be all over the place.

It is very sad to see that after the arrests from the police in Tenerife of the people involved with the Fake lawyers’ scam, they now seem to have re-appeared and are starting all over again.

First, they used the name Legalizalos, a name used before the arrests as well, and this week we have the first “new name” which is SG Abogados or Sorpeney & Grinudos Abogados.

We cannot stress enough that everybody that has been approached by these scammers should report this to the police!

Please do not fall for any cold calling company.

Nobody should have your private and personal details if you didn’t provide these to them!

Thanks to all consumers who were so kind as to send us information about the cold calling companies that had approached them and making us aware of their activity.

Fake Lawyers of Tenerife are calling again! This time it is SG Abogados.

We knew that when the arrests were made, some of the fraudsters were outside Spain and consequently not arrested.

First we noticed that Legalizalos continued to be active. They were using the same web, telephone numbers and email address.

But now a new company has been detected, with a complete new web, new name, new telephone and email address.

SG Abogados or Sorpeney & Grinudos Abogados.

A website was created only a couple of weeks ago https://sg-abogados.org and they even kept the new logo in the style of all the other precious fraudulent companies.

The supposed lawyers of this company are Ernesto Lamangra Sorpeney and Raul Degalis Legrudos.

We have no clue who or how they come up with these weird names and we can assure you these do NOT belong to any legal professional in Tenerife or rest of Spain

Contact details fro SG Abogados are:

  • Telephone Number 0800 8620751
  • Email: sg-ukclaims@legislator.com

Careful with the http://anfi-illegal-contracts-news.com website!

A very strange website has been detected recently, which seems to be dedicated only to the court rulings against Anfi.

The website http://anfi-illegal-contracts-news.com was registered on the 17th of August, so only 2 weeks ago and the domain was purchased for 1 year only.

Suppose they are not expecting to be around for much longer although they do say on the website that they have been around for the past 7 years.

Not only that, in these past 7 years they have done claims for more than 5500 clients, resulting in 404 Supreme Court rulings and recovering a staggering 120 million euros.

At present they are winning 3 to 7 claims against Anfi, every single week!

After reading all this, one wonders, “Why did we never hear from these super lawyers?”

The reality is that nobody has heard of them as it seems, and really, no lawyers are mentioned at all on the website.

No lawyers name, no registration numbers, nothing.

The company owning this website does not display any company information either. No address, no telephone, no email….

No privacy statement either, so they are not committing to any privacy of your personal details, as obligated by law.

It has all the looks of a website which is collecting consumer information to sell on to the highest bidder, their associated companies or both.

But we are afraid that once filled in the form, you will receive more than one unsolicited call!

Please be careful with who you submit your precious and private details to.

Websites like this do not give you any guarantee at all, and really the statements made about the number of claims won, the rulings, the weekly successes, they cannot be taken seriously!

If you actually did fill in the form on http://anfi-illegal-contracts-news.com and received a call or email, we would like to hear from you!

The Marris Group and the confiscated millions from Eze Group

The stories become more and more incredible when it comes to the court case of Eze Group and the supposed money awarded to the victims.

Latest caller with an incredible story is called The Marris Group.

The agent from Marris Group calls without caller ID.

What might be a “cold” call for the consumer doesn’t seem that cold for the agent of Marris Group as he seems to know the consumer purchased an Eze group membership, how much they paid, the date when this was signed and how it was paid for.

Those are very delicate details, and we can assure you that these are not just up for grabs on a “register” or with a Clerk from the courthouse!

The agent from Marris Group explains that the Spanish court had recovered £6 million from the directors of Eze group and have deposited this money with it a British company to repay the money people who were cheated by Eze.

The agent states he has a list of 4500 names and he is working his way through the biggest claims first.

If the consumer would like to receive their part of the awarded money they need to send an email to compliance@marris-group.com and they will explain how they can receive the refund in full.

The website from Marris Group was set up in the same month the company registered, December 2017. The initial registration was in the name of TIMESHARE LEGAL SERVICES but they have changed to Marris Group earlier this year.

Contact details 02080365013

If an agent from Marris Group has contacted you with a similar story about Eze group and the money confiscated through the courts, please let us know.

Luxury Linx and the free holiday in Tenerife or Mallorca to discuss a claim.

A new cold caller was detected recently by the name of Luxury Linx.

Luxury Linx initially presents themselves as a so-called fly-buy company who discounted accommodation week’s stays and where the consumer needs to attend a presentation (sales meeting).

The agent seems to have though a lot of information about the consumer, their timeshare membership details, etc.

When asking them where they obtained this information from, the answer is “from the timeshare Register“.

This seems very strange seen the current legislation on Data Protection, and nobody has heard of this register.

The Luxurylinx agent goes further with explaining that they are acting as an agent for a Consortium of Legal Advisers in Tenerife.

When visiting the website www.luxurylinx.info indeed it mentions that the registered Company name is: Meridian Litigation Advisors SL

This company was set up in December 2018

Consumers are offered a 2-7 nights free 4 star accommodations in Tenerife or Mallorca to have a free consultation with the legal people there.

The agent insists that claims against the consumer’s resort are currently handled by their legal company. The agent urges the consumer travel to their offices the soonest possible and discussing this claim as in about 18 months time the resort will go bankrupt.

The contact details for Luxury Linx are Telephone: +441618841639

Email: info@luxury-linx.com

Address: Calle La Isa 49, San Miguel de Abona, 38639 S C Tenerife, España

As always we recommend caution with cold callers.

Statements that resorts are going to go “bust” in about 18 months time are to be taken with caution as well.

Companies you have not asked for information and call you out of the blue are not complying with the law on data protection.

Legal companies do not cold call.

If Luxury Linx has offered you a discounted or free stay in Tenerife or Mallorca, we would like to have your feedback.

LIBR, another company claiming back the money paid to Eze group

Cold calling company LIBR seems to have started their call campaign recently, and as has happened with many in the past months, this company is also targeting Eze Group members.

Sad enough it seems that the client details from Eze Group members are all over the place.

The agent from Libr, a man called Tony, explains to the consumer that they can help with claiming the money back for the client.

They already are claiming through the Spanish courts and the consumer can sign up to join this claim.

As it is going through the Spanish courts, Tony from Libr also explains that the consumer will need a Taxation Identification Number or TIN.

If the consumer doesn’t have such TIN Number he cannot claim, so it is important to obtain one.

The consumer has 3 options to do this;

  1. Not claiming at all and forget about any possibility to get the money back
  2. Travel to Madrid for at least a 4-5 days stay in order to obtain TIN from local police
  3. Pay the company Libr £995 for them to obtain this TIN – Taxation Identification Number.

Looks like option 3 is the most attractive one…

LIBR mentions an address in the UK; Floor 6, Walker House, Exchange Flags, Liverpool, L2 3YL and their telephone number is 01513290417

We do not have more details, but really with the information we have, we can tell straight away that this is not a trustworthy company.

The story about claims going through the courts which you can join and the mysterious TIN number nobody ever heard off, it is just not right.

And as mentioned, again a company that is jumping on the wagon to try and get more money out of people who already have been duped before.

If Tony or anybody else from the company Libr has approached you, we would like to hear from you.

Have you been notified by the Oficina Judicial Andalucía about awarded money?

The latest cold caller which seems part of the fraudulent set up using names such as Juzgado de Primera Instancia, Malaga Courts, Malaga Juzgados, etc.

A lady called Lorena Morales claiming to be acting on behalf of the Juzgado de Primera Instancia (Malaga Courts), contacts consumers and breaks the news to them that they have been awarded money through a claim against their resort.

Of course, the consumer wasn’t even aware of being part of this claim, but who cares?

Lorena does not only have good news, but she also explains that unfortunately, Customs and Exercise have placed an embargo on the transfer as the amount awarded is over £200,000.00.

In order for the embargo to be lifted £2000 insurance must be placed with the lawyers to ensure that the funds are not going to be used for illegal purposes. This will then satisfy the Anti-money laundering legislation established as part of the 2017 Hague Securities Agreement.

So Lorena kindly includes an invoice for the once the £2000 payment and as soon as the Oficina Judicial Andalucia receives the money the settlement will be released within 3-5 working days.

Strange enough the invoice is for a bank account in the UK. Which governmental institution uses bank accounts in another country?

Lorena Morales is calling from a Spanish mobile 0034 604 190 953

She uses an email: awardcompli@malagajuz.com

The domain name “Malagajuz.com” was set up last week and is certainly not an official domain from any Spanish governmental institution.

Please note that the story of the awarded money through the Juzgados de Primera Instancia in Malaga and the payment to the Oficina Judicial Andalucia is a SCAM!

If Lorena Morales or any other person contacted you with the story about them acting on behalf of the courts in Malaga, awarded money and an embargo through the Oficina Judicial Andalucia, please let us know the soonest possible!

WARNING! LEGALIZALOS IS STILL ACTIVE!

After several years of warning about a continuous scam from the FAKE lawyers in Tenerife, we were very happy to announce at the end of June that the police had raided the premises and taken arrests.

The police statement explained that for the moment only 3 people had been arrested, 6 more have been charged but they could not be detained because they reside outside Spanish territory or do not know their whereabouts.

In the past week, we have received again worrying emails from consumers who say they spoke to a company called Legalizalos.

The emails they received have again the same “trademark” from these fraudsters.

Fake names of the staff such as Alejandra Olada Volindat, Mr. Armando Suletare Dolenas, Juan Montoya Hernandez, Angie Correh Rabido, Emilio Coleba Gorrin, and Svetlana Ruben Skirah

Emails used are: legalizalos@consultant.com and uk-proceedings@consultant.com

Website:https://legalizalos.org/

TelephoneTenerife: 0034 822 686 029   

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS IS A SCAM!!!

These people might not be in Spain right now, but they continue to have access to these email accounts and are still trying to scam consumers out of their money.

If a lawyers company from Tenerife has contacted you, let us know straight away!

Watch out for the fake lawyer of Salas Perez Asociados from Granada!

We received this week several requests about the background of a so-called law firm in Granada.

The name is Salas Perez Asociados and the so-called lawyer is one M.M. Salas Perez.

Mr. Peter van Rheenen or Stephan Wierts from Salas Perez Asociados from Granada 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.

Peter (or Stephan) 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 them less than a week to call back again and confirm that the judge has ruled against the resort and ordered the timeshare company reimburse almost the full amount the consumer paid when purchasing the membership.

The only thing the timeshare owner has to do now is paying the legal costs of 9.2% over the awarded amount.

The consumer must transfer this payment to a fiduciary 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, Salas Perez Asociados set up a website in April this year: https://salasperez.com

Contact details of Salas Perez Asociados are:

  • Address Avda Constitucion s / n, 18001 Granada
  • Telf +34 604 290 625
  • Email info@salasperez.com
  • Fax +911988587

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 Peter van Rheenen, Stephan Wierts or Louiza Ochan has already approached you from Salas Perez Asociados, please let us know as soon as possible.

Opgepast voor de valse advocaat van Salas Perez Asociados uit Granada!

Opnieuw hebben wij verschillende aanvragen over de achtergrond van een zogenaamd advocaten kantoor in Granada.

De naam is Salas Perez Asociados en de zogenaamde advocaat is ene M.M. Salas Perez.

De heer Peter van Rheenen of Stephan Wierts van Salas Perez Asociados uit Granada belt eigenaars van een Timesharing zomaar ineens op.

Het excuus dat hij gebruikt om te verklaren dat hij de persoonlijke gegevens heeft van deze timeshare eigenaar is dat de gegevens uit het Timeshare Register komen.

Klinkklare onzin en uiteraard bestaat dit register totaal niet en zou illegaal zijn gezien de wet van privacy bescherming.

Peter/ Stephan, legt uit dat er veel rechtszaken lopen tegen de verschillende resorts waaronder ook het resort waar de consument een lidmaatschap heeft.

De eigenaar van de timesharing kan nog net meedoen aan een lopende aanklacht.

Het duurt ook nog geen week voordat zij opnieuw terug bellen en vertellen dat de rechter bijna het volledig betaalde bedrag ter terugbetaling heeft gevorderd van het resort.

Het enige wat de timeshare eigenaar nu moet doen is de gerechtelijke kosten van een 9,2% over het uitbetalende bedrag.

Dit moet de consument storten op een fiduciair bankrekening waarop ook het resort het geld stort.

De rekening staat op de naam van mevrouw Louiza Ochan, de fiduciair ambtenaar.

Om het allemaal geloofwaardig over te laten komen heeft Salas Perez Asociados een website opgezet in April van dit jaar: https://salasperez.com

Contact gegevens van Salas Perez Asociados zijn:

  • Adres Avda Constitucion s/n, 18001 Granada
  • Telf +34 604 290 625
  • email info@salasperez.com
  • Fax +911988587

Bovenstaand bedrijf is een oplichterij. Als u het geld stort in de naam van Louiza Ochan zijn we bang dat u dit nooit meer terug gaat zien, dus BETAAL NIET!

Mocht u al zijn benaderd door Peter van Rheenen, Stephan Wierts of Louiza Ochan van Salas Perez Asociados, laat het ons dan zo snel mogelijk weten.

T&M Mediation Group, another blast from the past…

 

Not sure what to think of companies that appear in 2014, then vanish, make a short come back in 2016 and then you don’t hear from them until they start to cold call again in 2019!

T&M Mediation Group or TandM Mediation Group have started to cold call and are actively offering claims services to timeshare owners.

The cold call is followed up by an email where they explain that “T&M Mediation group are working on behalf of the members of your holiday club and are here to offer a NO WIN NO FEE service to claim back the money that you so rightly deserve…”

They insist the consumer should have used a credit card for at least one of the payments to their resort, which suggests they are going to do a Consumer Act claim. This is actually confirmed in the copy of the agreement.

All T&M Mediation Group needs from the consumer is some forms filled in with all the details of their timeshare purchase, and send the copies through by email or even pictures through whassap to get the claim going.

A lady called Jane Mazzone who presents herself as the managing director signs the correspondence they email to the consumers after the cold call. Previously the correspondence was signed by Jade Mazzone.

Contact details: tandmmediationgroup@europe.com

Telephone: 0034643946663

Their website https://www.tandmmediationgroup.com which was registered at the end of June 2019 (6 weeks ago), states they are legal specialists since 1998.

In spite of being legal specialists the website does not comply with the law and does not display any company registration or details. Neither is there a privacy policy.

If you received a cold call from TandM Mediation Group or T&M Mediation, offering you a claim, please do let us know.

Are you also waiting for Solutions Group to finalize your claim?

Lately, we have seen the unexpected “comebacks” of companies that were active years ago. Companies you would have thought had vanished, but no, they are still here and they still think it is acceptable to string people along and ask them for money for services that won’t be delivered.

One of these companies that never seem to vanish completely is The Solutions Group or Section75. Contact details are: Tel: 020 3137 3970 and Email: info@section75.eu

Based in Tenerife, C/ Luciano Bello Alfonso, Nº5, Oficina 1, Las Chafiras, 38639, S/C de Tenerife, Spain

For many years they keep on popping up on our cold caller lists and their creativity is endless when it comes to explaining consumers their services.

Consumers who paid them in the past to join a supposed “Class Action” against different dubious holiday companies are now finally receiving news.

The claim seems to have been presented in the courts.

But, with such bad luck that it had to be postponed again or adjourned as Julia from Solutions Ltd explains…

Reasons for adjournment:
A) 2 defence parties reported ill and unable to attend.
B) Insufficient disclosure of offshore funds – further time granted.

But not to worry, a new date has been set by the courts in 2 months time.

Reason enough it seems for Solutions to advise the consumer that they are now reaching the next stage, which is for the collection team to take over and prepare for the final hearing.

Can you smell the money already? Waiting for years, and you are almost there…

Julia takes the opportunity to reassure the consumer and she also kindly sends them 2 documents related to the claim.

The first document is what they call an ‘authorization to proceed’. She speaks very lightly of the document in the email, and simply explains that the consumer should sign it and return either by post or even with an email reply stating yes, we “opt-in” it seems to be enough.

What she doesn’t explain is that in the document the consumer is given 2 options, opting in or out. Which you are free to do as per the law, but it also says that by signing you understand that opting out could result in costs and penalty fees.

The document, in any case, does not seem to hold any legal binding; there are no company details, no details of the supposed court claim, nothing. It only refers to “Solutions” which could be anything or anybody…

The second document is even more interesting. It is the supposed notification from the lawyer handling the Class Action, Mrs. Ana Martinez Castillo.

The only company details are a bad-copied logo of a company called Castillo & Castillo Abogados.

There is no address, no company registration, no reference number or anything related to the supposed claim she refers to in her letter, there is NOTHING!

She actually starts the letter with Dear Solutions…This cannot be serious!

Please if you paid Solutions years ago for whatever claim or whatever refund payout they promised you, it might be too late to get this back.

But do not pay them any further money based on a word document signed by Julia with no surname and a lawyers letter with no details at all apart from a simple logo.

If you find yourself in the situation described above, please let us know.

Timeshare Cold Callers Month of July 2019

 

Dear All,

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:

Cold Callers July 2019

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.

You can read the article on the following link: https://wp.me/p1kmoi-3zV

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!

Regards

Customer Care

Did you have contact with somebody from Tenerife Experts or A and L Services?

Over the past years, we have received very worrying inquiries from consumers who have been in contact with a company called A & L Services

Steward Davis presents himself as working for a company called A&L Services or ASL

This company offered timeshare consumers claims through the Spanish courts in order to recuperate the money they paid to a company called Carpe Diem.

The consumer was informed the company ceased trading and the duped members could claim back the money through the Spanish courts. The consumers on the phone were assured that A&L services had already successfully recovered the money for several others in the same situation.

In order to get the claim up and running Initially, they asked for £375.00 and a further £375.00 once the claim was completed.

But things escalated quickly from there and after paying these initial admin fees the consumers were asked for more and more money.

Based on (false) court documentation the consumers were informed about the thousands of pounds they had been awarded through the court, but then a tax charge came up.

In order to avoid the charge, the consumer was requested to do another payment so Steward Davis could process the paperwork.

From there on the consumers have been contacted over the years with other charges such as Legal fees, Notary fees, bank fees, procurator fees, etc. etc.

Although Stewart Davies started off with telling the consumers he worked for A&L Services, over the years he changed the company names to

Overseas Claims, Overseas Finance and Exports and Overseas Trade and Finances all based in Tenerife.

Telephone numbers used by Stewart Davis are 08458620791 y 34 604 28 90 26

Other companies involved in this set up are Tenerife Experts and Servicios Legales.

Names involved are among others, Luke Heeley, Ray Brookes, Craig, Miguel and Maureen

Company details: A & L Services Website: http://www.aandlservices.com a website created in September 2011 and although still there, it does not show any updates since 2011. The address shown on the web is: Behind Hotel Vulcano, Local 16, Playa de las Américas, 38660, Arona, Tenerife, Spain Telephone 0845 8620 117 and Email info@aandlservices.com

Company details: Tenerife Consultants & Experts S.L.U.  Same address as A & L Services, Telephone: 0845 8621 876  Website: www.tenerifeexperts.com  (no longer there) E-Mail: admin@tenerifeexperts.com

Company details; Servicios legales,  Address: Centro de Negocios, Maixa Executive Suites, Golf del Sur, San Miguel de Abona, 25295 Tenerife.  Telephone: 08458620117 Email: admin@legalservicesdepartment.com  There is no website.

We are publishing all these details because there are still consumers who are holding on to the messages of Stewart Davis and Craig, etc. who continuously keep on promising the money will be transferred into the consumers account if they pay another charge….

We are talking here about consumers who have lost so far a substantial amount of money and we do not exclude the possibility that there are other victims out there.

If any of the above-mentioned names ring a bell, or you have been dealing with them, please let us know.

This could be recent dealing or maybe of some time ago, but we are interested in your feedback.

If you are one of those consumers who are waiting for the substantial payout through the courts with the help of Steward Davies, please don’t pay a penny more! And contact us urgently!
