Heeft Lage Garcia u al gebeld voor een service via hun advocaten?

Weer een zeer vreemde beller, deze keer onder de naam Lage Garcia. We weten niet eens of “Lage” de voornaam is of achternaam want echt, dit is niet eens een Spaanse naam.

Lage Garcia stelt zich voor als een advocaten kantoor in Madrid.

Een compleet Spaans kantoor dat wel heel veel Nederlands sprekend personeel in dienst heeft!

Volgens de persoon die belt in opdracht van Lage Garcia is het hun taak om bedrogen timeshare eigenaars  te helpen en de aan hen de door bedriegers afgenomen gelden terug te vorderen.

Dit gebeurt op de volgende wijze :

Lage Garcia stelt een dossier samen op basis van de door de geïnteresseerden voorgelegde informatie; vervolgens bestuderen zij samen, namelijk  de collega’s advokaten van het kantoor, het dossier en beslissen dan of er een mogelijkheid ter terugvordering van gelden  bestaat; indien ja, wordt het dossier bij het toegestane gerecht ingediend.

Indien de uitspraak negatief uitvalt, te zeggen de vorderende partij krijgt geen bedrag toegewezen, hoeft deze ook niets te betalen, zelfs niet voor de door Lage Garcia uitgevoerde voorbereiding.

Indien het gerecht aan de consument wel een zeker bedrag toewijst, zijn gerechts- en administratiekosten te betalen.. Het aan de consument toegewezen bedrag staat vanaf dan op een fiduciaire bankrekening van het gerecht op de naam van de consument als begunstigde geboekt en kan dus niet verrekend worden. De honoraria zijn in deze gerechtskosten inbegrepen daar wij rechtstreeks door het gerecht uitbetaald worden.

Nou hoe goed klinkt dat weer? Geruststellend? Te vertrouwen? Niet echt!

Want bij onderzoek is gebleken dat er helemaal geen kantoor bestaat die Lage Garcia heet en zeer zeker niet op het adres in Madrid!

De contact gegevens voor dit valse advocaten kantoor zijn een Spaanse mobile nummer: +34 603 2374 598 en email adres Info@lagegarcia.com

Het zogenaamde adres van hun kantoor is Calle De Las Hileras 28013, MADRID ga maar zoeken in een straat in Madrid zonder nummer!

Mensen pas op met dit soort telefoontjes. Het zijn bedriegers, het zijn oplichters en het enige wat zij willen is uw geld!

Er is geen rechtszaak, er is geen advocaat in de naam Lage Garcia en als u geld stort op de rekening van dit soort oplichters dan zijn wij bang dat u dit niet terug zal zien.

Mocht u al zijn benaderd door de werknemer van Lage Garcia, bellende vanaf 0034 6032374598 of een ander nummer en met het bovenstaande verhaal, laat het ons dan weten.

Stuur ons een mail via customercare@mindtimeshare.com of zet een commentaar op het blog.

Have you received cold calls from Softi Tours based in Marrakech?

This alert goes out for a company called Softi Tours which is a timeshare resale company, based in Marrakech and with a very familiar pitch.

Softi Tours contacts consumers mainly in France and Belgium and offers to buy their timeshare. In order to sell the timeshare, the owner must go to Marrakech and attend a meeting with an alleged buyer.

They explain to the consumers that there is already an agreed sale price and the price is surprisingly high for the sole purpose of convincing the consumer of the good deal.

Their address is 26 Boulevard Abdelkrim El Khattabi 40 000 Marrakech (Maroc) and telephone number 00212 762-495-234; email: softitours.ste.kech@gmail.com or contact@softitours.com

The website is http://www.softitours.com

The Softi Tours officer explains that there is no down payment. But when the consumer receives the confirmation email, it contains a “confidential Code”.

When you access the Web with this code, there is a PROTOCOL RIGHT TRANSFER AGREEMENT OCCUPATION-

Please note that companies that cold call you, obviously got your contact information and membership details through an illegal source and when they offer a guaranteed resale requesting you to travel to another country and pay upfront fees … they are not trustworthy!

Have you been contacted by Softi Tours with the number 00212 762-495-234? Please, let us know.

Avez-vous reçu des appels par la société Softi Tours basée à Marrakech?

Cette alerte aux consommateurs sort pour les entreprises de revente Softi Tours, basée à Marrakech et avec un pitch (argument commercial) très semblable lorsque elles contactent les clients avec des appels à froid.

Softi Tours contacte principalement les consommateurs de France et Belgique et leur offre de racheter leurs multipropriétés. Afin de vendre la multipropriété le propriétaire doit se rendre à Marrakech et assister à une réunion avec un prétendu acheteur.

Ils expliquent aux consommateurs qu’il existe déjà un prix de vente convenu et que le prix est étonnamment élevé dans le seul but de convaincre le consommateur de la bonne affaire qui est offert.

Leur Adresse 26 Boulevard Abdelkrim El Khattabi 40 000 Marrakech (Maroc) et numéro de téléphone 00212 762-495-234; adresse email : softitours.ste.kech@gmail.com et contact@softitours.com

Site web http://www.softitours.com

L’agent de Softi Tours explique, il n’y a pas de paiement initial. Mais lorsque le consommateur reçoit l’email de confirmation, il est un ” Code confidentiel».

Lorsque l’accès au Web avec ce code, il y a une PROTOCOLE DE CONVENTION DE CESSION DE DROIT D’OCCUPATION-

Veuillez noter que les entreprises qui vous appellent à froid, ils ont évidemment obtenu vos coordonnées et les détails d’adhésion par le biais d’une source illégale et s’elles vous offrent une garantie de revente demandant de se rendre à un autre pays et payer des frais initiaux … elles ne sont pas dignes de confiance!

Avez-vous été contacté par Softi Tours par le numéro 00212 762-495-234? S’il vous plaît, faites-nous savoir.

Wilson and Perez, more cold calling “legal professionals” offering claims

Wilson & Perez has started their calls this week. They claim to be a legal company and on their website http://www.wilsonandperez.com they mention their “Timeshare Exit and support services”.

The agent calling from Wilson and Perez offers the timeshare consumer a guaranteed claim. Everything is more less done and dusted already before even starting. And all the consumer has to do is paying £2400 into a trustee account with Barclays bank, to be returned on completion of paperwork.

But for this the consumer can expect a compensation award through the courts of at least £10,000!

The website of Wilson and Perez was registered at the beginning of December 2016.

On the web they put as contact details 2 offices, one in London and one in Madrid.

UK Address: Legal Litigation & Commerce, PCP International, 53-64 Chancery House, Chancery Lane, London, WC2 A1QU

Spanish offices: Edificio Maldonado, Calle Belazquez 103-105 Piso 7, Valazuez, Madrid, 28006

Telephone: (44) 203 883 4549 and Email: info@wilsonandperez.com

There is no mention on the website of any company registration or a full and complete name of the solicitors working in this company.

With above information we would recommend all consumers who are approached by Wilson & Perez from 02038834549 to be very cautious and not paying any money upfront.

If you received a call from this company we would like to have your feedback.

You can email us at customercare@mindtimeshare.com or place a comment on this blog

#Timeshare Cold Callers for February 2017

 

Dear All,

The Cold Caller List for March 2017 has been elaborated and we have counted in the past month a total of 75 cold callers.

From these 75 active cold calling companies we have 19 new company names.

For the complete list of the 75 cold calling companies in March please go to the following link: Mindtimeshare Cold Callers March 2017

The 19 new companies names are;

  • Abogados Abel Garcia
  • Allied Services
  • Beasley Consulting (Fake)
  • British Administration Investigatory Department
  • Champers & Co
  • FS Payments
  • Elite Vacances
  • EYG Abogados y Auditores (FAKE)
  • Henshaw and Rendall / Henshaw Associates / Henshaw Legal Assesors
  • Justicia de Malaga
  • MK Services
  • NCLA
  • Oficina notarial Victoria Manuelo Vidal
  • Randall Legal Associates
  • Randell Hamilton
  • Shakespeare Marketing
  • Wilson & Perez

Some of the cold callers seem to find it “amusing” to change their names over and over again as soon as we publish a blog, but really this only shows how unscrupulous some cold callers are.

At all cost they want the consumer to believe them and they produce fake websites with pictures taken from the Internet to represent their so called lawyers, addresses made up and often completely fake, etc. etc.

Be extra careful with the so-called “Fraud Recovery Fraud”*

If you’ve been a victim of fraud in the past, whoever took your money may keep your contact information and contact you again.

They’ll pose as an organisation that has been made aware of your loss. They’ll claim they can arrest the fraudster, or even recover the money you lost. In either case, they say you’ll need to pay a fee first.

This is a form of advance fee fraud and unfortunately you’ll never get any money back.

If you pay, they’ll keep coming back to you with another cost that has to be paid, before your money can be returned.

If you ask them to take the fees from the money they claim to have recovered, they will give reasons why this isn’t possible. For example, they might tell you that your money is under the control of a court and can only be paid back to you by them.

It is bad enough if you have been scammed before, please don’t let them do it to you again!

Thanks for keeping us updated on all cold calls you receive throughout the month and please keep the information coming, as this is of a great value to us and avoids numerous scams to happen!

Leisure Alliance, another company from Club Class wound up!

It was announced already over a year ago, but finally the wound up has taken place of the company:

LEISURE ALLIANCE PLC (Company Number 6258) Registered office: PO Box 1137, 2nd Floor Allied Buildings, Francis Rachel Victoria, Mahe, SEYCHELLES

For the official notice on The Gazette please click on the link:https://www.thegazette.co.uk/notice/2723777

This is one of the many companies belonging to the Club Class Group of Companies we have seen over the past year being wound up.

It is still surprising though that with the same speed the companies are wound up, the Group of Club Class adds more company names to their list.

We have seen Club Class changing into Gr8stays, and ITRA the International Timeshare Refund Action into ECC the European Claims Centre.

Former Club Class members are now receiving payment requests in RED Envelopes from Gr8stays, even when they have never agreed or signed to change into this club. Apart from the fact of course that in their agreement it doesn’t even mention an obligation to pay yearly or pay a substantial amount to “cancel” the agreement.

And as far as the ITRA side of the company concerns, a wide range of company names have passed the scenes, and most of them even denying having anything to do with the others.

We have Victoria Marketing, The Refund Action, Timeshare Advice Centre and Timeshare Release cold calling to invite people over to meetings where they would discuss a No Win no Fee claim against their resort.

But all the meetings end up in the same places, the place where the ITRA representative is welcoming them. Well it is no longer ITRA of course, as they are now the ECC, the European Claims Centre, as they like to call themselves.

In Spain there is another variation as well, as the offices in Marbella are working under the name of R.A.Consultants or R.A. Marbella

  • How are consumers expected to keep up with this all?
  • Why are the authorities not looking into this?
  • Don’t they receive enough complaint?

When these companies are exposed in the press as we have seen happening with ITRA, they just change the names completely and register a new company name in a far away country…

Take ECC, a company that uses the word “European” in their name. How odd is it that the company in reality is registered in the USA? Their address is 3400 Capitol Blvd. s, Ste, 101 Olympia, WA98501

Or the R.A.Consultants who are registered at the Dubai Trade Center, P.O.Box 48904, office 1602, Dubai, UAE

Good luck trying to find them at these addresses!

Our understanding of running a business is that when a company is good for their customers, provide the services offered in their agreements, deliver the promises they do at their meetings and are as successful as they say they are….there is NO need to change the company name!

The contrary! You want to create a brand that stands out, you want to be the company that when people hear the name they say, “Yes, these people helped me out indeed!”

But obviously that is not the case with the above company group, as all they do is hide behind different names, to make sure people are not going to find them on the Internet when doing their research prior to attending their meetings or paying for their services.

Leisure alliance Plc might have been wound up, but there is a long list still to go through…

NCLA a timeshare reseller who is asking for upfront fees.

Although lately all cold callers seem to handle claims and court cases, every now and then a cold calling timeshare resale company pops up, like this one called NCLA.

NCLA calls from 0203 868 6059 and claims to be based at the Typhoon Business Centre, Unit 1, Oakcroft Road, Chessington, Surrey, KT9 1RH

Coincidentally they seem to share their number with another timeshare resale company called Indigo Solutions.

NCLA has really good offers for the timeshare owners. Without having spoken to the timeshare owner before, they straight away offer good money for any week at any resort.

All the timeshare owner needs to do is pay for an upfront security deposit of around £1000 and the sale will be completed.

At this point we have to remind all readers that asking for an upfront payment to process a timeshare resale, has been illegal and strictly forbidden since the 2012 European Timeshare Directive came to effect.

So any genuine timeshare resale company would not ask for such payment!

On top of this, the fee has to be paid by bank transfer, and the name of the account holder is not NCLA or even Indigo Solutions. The name on the account is Fire Financial Services Ltd.

If you have been approached by NCLA or Indigo Solutions for a guaranteed timeshare resale from telephone 02038686059 we would like to hear from you.
